“A good value hotel”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Stayed at the Nirebo, becuase we were on a slight tight budget for travelling. The best feature is there Location... it's really good! for the price!

It also has everything you pretty much need! it's not self contained if that's what you like!

The bed was quite comfortable! Air condtioner was good. Only the bathroom needs to be Updated... tile changing..... hehe.

Might stay here again.

Room Tip: A good location

Dear Elena T

Thanks for reviewing our property. Our property screams "great location" and we are proud of the product that we present to the public and believe it represents great value. What we lack in the flashy "wow" factor we make up for with service.

Thanks for the note about the bathrooms as I agree entirely. We are going through the process of new beds and bedding then we move onto soft furnishing and then lastly will be the bathrooms.

Hopefully when you return you will see the difference.

The Nirebo was a great Hotel.Walking distance to the port,right in the middle of the Main Street
and shopping area and close to the bridge to Moama. The rooms were very clean and spacious with a comfy bed.All amenities were in good working order.
Especially the air conditioner which we had on all the time because it was so hot.It was nice being so close to the river and walking down there in the cool evening.The staff were very nice as well.
I would definitely stay here again.

Dear VanJ123

Thank you for staying with us and for also taking the time to write a review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay in Echuca. The summer has been a good one with the weather - some would say a bit to hot - but once your here you get used to it quickly. The other point to remember is that you go on holiday to get away from what is "normal" so coming to a place where the sun is shining all the time and the jacket and long pants stay in the suit case in necessary for you to truly enjoy yourself and get into the holiday mode.

We all look forward to you returning.

First time in Echuca and we stayed at Nirebo and we could not have found a better location. It is very close to the port,shopsand cafe's. The rooms were very clean and did not smell. The pool was a hit with my kids due to the hot weather it became very usefull. Kids forgot there ds and chargers in the room and an hour after leaving we got a call from Nirebo that they found these in the room. Lucky for me the manager of nirebo was coming to melbourne the next day and met up with him and returned my kids item. From my experience I would also say that managment and staff are very honest people which for me is comforting to know when I go back to Nirebo.

Our first stay here, in town for a family wedding so our extended family all stayed here, & found it very clean, spacious (room 15 was ours), comfortable bed, & all amenities provided. A microwave, kettle, toaster, crockery, cutlery all provided, so could easily bring your own breakfast goodies & prepare in the room, if you want to save a bit more. The only possible drawback (& it's my husband's gripe with almost all motels/hotels these days) - instead of sheets & blankets, a doona was provided, which he always finds way too hot for sleeping comfort. Otherwise, a lovely room, with a 2 seater sofa in the spacious living area, as well as a table & 4 chairs. Iron & ironing board in the closet if you need one, hairdryer, large screen TV etc etc. (Didn't use or see the fitness centre & spa to rate these.)

Room Tip: Room 15 on the ground floor (at the far end from Reception) was very spacious. Car park available ri...

Hi Cheryl P

What a lovely review - thank you. If someone could design a nice bed spread then I would happily return to the good old blanket. When we took over the motel the beds had blankets and the bed spreads were nice but really did not do it for me. So to create that modern look we had to move to doonas - AAA will also take points away from a property that has bed spreads these days. So what can you do.

I am glad you enjoyed the rest of the amenties but am at a loss to know where our fitness centre is or where you read about it. If you feel inclined can you drop me a line so that i can investigate this?

We've stayed at the Nirebo on several occasions, and plan to do so again soon. It's very close to the Port, historic and usual touristy places, so we walked everywhere, including across to Moama. On our last visit (using V/Line train+bus for a change, instead of our car), we found that the pickup/dropoff point was just 5 minutes away. Being light sleepers, having a back room eliminated street noise. Our rooms have been clean, well-maintained, comfortable, quiet, and the bathroom area modernised and roomy. Good value for money. Would have liked a microwave, but made do with the toaster. Staff were friendly and helpful. Don't be misled by the "ordinary" exterior.

Hi GeoffB65

Always nice to see people return. Given our central location it nice that ours rooms are still quiet. If you had of asked we could have provided a microwave - so next time ask.

All the best for the New Year.

The Nirebo Motel has a bit of a gloomy exterior, but the rooms have been recently renovated and are clean and fresh. The best aspect of this motel is its proximity to the Port of Echuca and all the restaurants and shops in the historic portion of town. I stayed on the Mebourne Cup public holiday and as a result there was no breakfast service which I thought was a bit strange. This was in keeping with the rest of the town which essentially closed up for the holiday. Luckily, I could cross the border to Moama in NSW where all the restaurants and cafes were open. Otherwise the Nirebo is a good option for those wanting to spend a couple of days in Echuca.

Hi Mark S

Thanks for the review. I am working on a plan for the exterior - I just need to get the new color scheme approved by council. The rooms are only part way through being refurbished so the next time you come you should see more of a change.

All the best for the New Year
