“Old Style But Well Presented”
Reviewed April 23, 2014

Well located just off the motorway, it is an old style decor, but good efforts made with good fabric coverings, well presented and very clean. Owners friendly, rooms spacious and it all worked. Downside was the bathroom mirror on the side of the basin – harder to shave and the surrounding area not that interesting just light industrial and suburban house. A pub across the road provides easy access to food and drink, but food is average. Other restaurants nearby. Reasonable value for money.

Found this place by sheer chance and couldn't have been happier. Very friendly and helpful owner. Comfortable room, with excellent bathroom, wi-fi, aircon, lots of space, what more can I say. Just perfect. The added bonus was the Edwards Tavern across the street, where the food was outstanding, with a great selection of beers and wines. Very happy to recommend this place.

We have stayed at this motel a number of times travelling to Melbourne. Rooms are very clean and quite large. It is situated close to the Freeway to and from Melbourne so is very convenient. This motel has all that you would want including Air Con. Staff are very friendly so would have no problem recommending it.

The rooms are well sized and comfortable. The rooms are more homely than many other motels lacking the typical head board budget motel bed and tacky desk and dining table furniture commonly found. The bathrooms are quite modern and very large. The host are also more than accommodating, some of the best I've come across. Great value for the area.

This motel is on the Melbourne side of Wodonga; very near the freeway, but far enough away to be beautifully quiet. Clean and comfortable. Only 10 rooms in total and plenty of outdoor space. Cars can be parked with doors fully open - really handy when loading through the side doors as we do (plus the rear). Pub across the road has good food too.

Stopped for the night on the way to Canberra and was greeted with a friendly conversation and helpful information regarding places to get a meal. Edwards Tavern is right across the road. Will definately stay here again.

Room Tip: Single story with parking at front of unit - wide parking bays
