“Good Stay”
Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

Stayed at the motel for two nights. Motel is in town and was very clean and tidy. Found it to be a reasonable quality motel for a small town. The management were friendly and helpful. Would stay there again.

Stayed July 2013, traveled as a couple

My husband and I spent two nights at the Waltzing Matilda Motel in Charleville. Our hosts extended their hospitality far and beyond the normal expectations of motel accommodation.
The rooms were exceptional, comfortable and implacably clean.
We had two evening meals in their restaurant, the servings were large and top quality food.
They served us breakfast in our rooms for the days and gave us extra because they knew we were travelling long distances and wanted 'to give us a good start'.
By far it was the most enjoyable motel stay we have ever had and would highly recommend fellow travellers to avail themselves of the same hospitality extended to us.

Unassuming motel located at the quieter edge of the CBD. Motel appears quite modern from the exterior, but the rooms (at least my room) was smallish and a little dated in construction and fitout. Rooms are nevertheless clean and everything works satisfactorily. Bathroom was actually more spacious than expected.
Charleville appears to be quite dead after hours, but there is a pub and an Indian restaurant within easy walking distance of the motel. If looking for a sit-down breakfast there is a bakery/café a block away too.
Motel appears to be close to booked out most nights by commercial travellers and contractors, and this is a recommendation in itself.

Initially, when booking at this motel, I had problems with the website and emails, ( now fixed ? ) but after contacting Therese by phone about this I was able to make a booking to stay for a couple of nights in the town where I grew up, and left back in 1967.
Therese and Stuart were very welcoming, and eager to advise us what to see around the town now, and were very interested in my telling of what used to be around the town back when.
The meal in their restaurant was great, and a conversation with a travelling rep about road conditions and available accommodation further east prompted us to change our future travel plans.
The location is an easy walk to the main shopping area. Definitely recommend a stay, a meal, and a yarn.

I am a sales rep and travel all over the state and I have stayed here 3 times so far and I wouldn't stay anywhere else, comfy bed, great shower pressure, comfy and quiet and best of all fantastic customer service, the friendliest hosts I have encountered. On the road you want a homemade meal and Stuart ( self proclaimed best chef in CHARLEVILLE ) makes a mean Diane sauce, beautiful meals and beautiful hosts.

Room Tip: Ring early so your not disappointed

We have been riding our motorbikes around Australia and staying in Motels, cabins and hotels for 2 months. The service and value at this motel is the best that we have experienced. The owners Terese and Stuart are welcoming, bike friendly, organised and great company!

We got stranded in Charleville needing a new bike tyre and Stuart sprang into action doing all he could to help get us on the road. He organised a courier to pick up a tyre from Roma and have it the next morning.

You could check in just to experience country hospitality at its finest.

Terese and Stuart have only been there for 7 weeks, so the old reviews should be ignored.

The rooms are clean and comfortable and well priced.

Thank you Terese and Stuart, can't believe we enjoyed our Chareville stop over so much.
