Parkview Motor Inn

Reviewed January 12, 2013

Wangaratta is the perfect overnight stop when travelling from Sydney to Melbourne with kids. It is a small, quaint town full of charm and all essential services.

Parkview Motor Inn sits amongst other accommodation but is next to a spacious park within easy walking distance to town. Online booking was a breeze. We chose this over others and also over Albury/ Wodonga accommodation due to the reasonable price for a larger, more family-friendly space and we were not disappointed.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment and it was very clean, spacious (and modern compared to most motel accommodation). They even have that third single bed for those who have dared to travel with three kids!

On the first floor, only two small sets of steps were completely manageable even by our 3 year-old.
Once inside there is no noise from neighbouring apartments.

It is equipped with washing machine, iron etc if you need and the bathroom is large and clean. The kitchen has everything you need for a basic stop but also an oven, microwave and well, things you need to stay longer. Water glasses in the fridge were a nice touch on a hot day.

We didn't use the pool but others did and looked like they were having lots of fun.

I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for the night on our way to Melbourne. It was very clean, comfortable and a great location. The staff were very obliging and friendly. The pool was just what we needed as we arrived on a hot day. Merriwa Park is right next door which provided a beautiful outlook and it was great for the kids to let off some steam. The rate per night inc. continental breakfast was very reasonable. I highly recommend this motel and would definitely stay again.

Stayed here one night on the way to Melbourne. The room was very spacious and could not be better for a standard booking. The lighting in the room was amazing with many options. The room was on first floor and overlooked the park which was beautiful. The bathroom was a little small but ok. Furnishings were nice and adequate. Continental breakfast was generous and cheerfully delivered. There are free dvd's lent on an honour system and you can have as many as you want. Managers were very friendly and helpful. Free wifi included.

Room Tip: If you have trouble with stairs ask for ground floor accommodation.

We stayed for one night on our way to Melbourne. The check in staff were friendly and informative and gave advice on local dinning etc. Ground floor room was clean and tidy. Bathroom quite small but managable - great shower though. There was everything we needed to self cater for breakfast - toaster, kettle, milk, cutlery and even a coffee plunger and coffee!
Terrific value. In the morning Pat checked us out and was extremely helpful and went way and beyond for a special request from us.

Room Tip: I recommend ground floor, park view room as there is still a lovely view of the park but without the...

Greeted by nice friedly staff. We stayed in the upstairs room which is spacious and faces the park. No elevators as it was a two storey building. Breakfast was included in our booking and get to choose cereals, toast with variety of jam & butter. Requested for a microwave and got one.
Love the flat screen TV. Good place to stay which is within our budget.

Room Tip: No elevator. Request a ground floor room if you have difficulty going up the stairs. Ground floor ro...

Our family of four adults spent two nights at the motor inn. The family unit, consisting of two bedrooms, lounge/kitchen, laundry, bathroom, was very comfortable and it was great having a laundry. Three beds in the second bedroom is a big cramped but OK. The lounge/kitchen area had good seating but the carpet could do with a shampoo. More powerful lighting would have been appreciated so that reading was easier. Free Wifi was an added bonus. The staff were most helpful. We would definitely stay there again. Thank you.

Room Tip: Family units great.
