“Outstanding!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014 via mobile

Excellent facilities, engaging hosts, good quiet location and best of all they allow pets in your room! There are not nearly enough pet-friendly hotels and motels in Australia. Advance Motel is setting a great standard for the rest of the industry to live up to.

That's a big pat on the back. Thank you. We do only have 4 pet friendly rooms which are very popular. We agree though, there aren't enough quality pet friendly establishments around.

The big difference between motel A and motel B are the people. The owners is awesome, very very friendly and helpful. Right from our initial booking, right through to checkout. I met some of the cleaners too, and they are all very happy. What a lovely positive work environment for everyone.
The team here have obviously made an effort - there is a 24 hour checkin device thing, FREE wifi all the way through (although I never got it to work properly), there is a small pool and spa too. And they offer Avis car rentals.
The room was great, it had clearly been modernised with an LCD TV and newish comfy bed. The rest of the room was pretty standard motel, but that's ok. The price was great. We got a "Pet friendly" room, and our small dog was very happy there.
The location is a drive out of town, but that's ok.
When we return to Wangaratta, this is where we will be staying. A well deserved #1.

Booked here and after talking on the phone to the owner, everything he said was backed up with a great room and advice on how to get around to places like Beechworth, Milawa etc.
It had crisp clean sheets and was very quiet, set back from the road and ensured a great nights sleep.
Would go back.

We stayed here 2 nights in a family room for 5....Beds comfy 1 queen, 3 singles. Room was a reasonable size. The kids loved the pool. It was great to have WIFI freely available. The rooms were very clean. It was great place to stay and we will be there again. Staff were very helpful and aware they are in the service business.

We stayed here overnight passing through from GOR to Sydney. What a lovely little place. The parking lot, office and surrounding area were all tidy and well seen after. We were given a voucher for wifi internet service which was fast and had several available access points. We were not able to stay for breakfast since we had to leave early but it was offered to us.

Michael was friendly and helpful. Our room had two single beds. The room was clean and ready as expected. The beds are small and are on rollers so they're very easily moved so if you bump it you may roll it in front of the bath door - blocking it. The bath was clean and had clean towels. It did not have a hair dryer which was a minor inconvenience. The water pressure was nice. The power outlets nearest the beds were located underneath a console/night stand between the two beds which made them a bit difficult to reach. The room contained a television fitted with a DVD player. We did not use it but nice to have. We liked it - we'd stay again

We just love this place. Pristine rooms and pool/garden area. Stayed upstairs this time and had a spa suite with a balcony overlooking the beautiful gardens. It was nearly full and we felt like the only guests there. The owners are so generous and local knowledge great. Didn't have to drive to bottle shop as they have fab bar selection on site at really reasonable prices. Lastly, what can I say, breckie was awesome....best smoothie ever!

Wonderful welcome. Well appointed room. Really clean and every appliance worked! Also nice and quiet as it is set back from the road. Highly recommended. Also Cafe Martini further up the street for a wonderful meal.
