Our family group consisting of 3 adults and 2 children reserved two rooms over the Easter weekend paying sky-high rates for fairly basic accommodation. The double room for two adults consisted of one queen size bed and one pull-out sofa ($180 per night, no breakfast) whilst the larger family suite consisted of one queen, one sofa bed and two single beds and a small kitchenette ($230 per night, no breakfast included). The motel is ranked 4 ½ stars but perhaps motel rankings are not as stringent as hotel rankings as this property did not compare to any 4 ½ hotel I have stayed at recently. The motel is relatively new and has about 40 rooms in a double storey building. Cars park directly outside the doors of the rooms which means you will hear people unloading and chatting whenever they arrive. Both rooms we reserved had good firm beds, a fridge, tea/coffee facilities, air-conditioning, and a raised spa bath overlooking beautiful bush land. On the negative side there was almost nowhere to store clothes, only a smallish TV with terrible reception and spartan décor. Furthermore I was disappointed to discover that all toiletries were administered in a no-name pump dispenser fixed to the walls rather than in individual bottles that most Spa Resorts provide. As we were unlucky enough to be on the ground floor, we were also subject to trampling overhead at all hours and squealing plumbing. No tableware or cutlery was provided in the kitchenette. The basic continental breakfast on offer was $14 – we decided to drive to the Rich River Country Club for only $8.50 or $5.50 a child as both properties offered only cereal, bread, tea/coffee and tinned fruit. On a positive note, the pool area was lovely, set in lush gardens, and the indoor spas and steam room were relaxing. Service was efficient and the rooms were clean. The motel is situated close to the quiet main street in Moama and in walking distance to a brand new Safeway store. It’s only 5 minutes by car to quaint Echuca with its wonderful restaurants and historical ambience. I would recommend this property for those that enjoy swimming and indulging themselves in (overpriced) treatments. My kids absolutely loved the (unheated, cold) pool and the atmosphere was friendly at all times.
