“Friendly hosts and pleasant motel ....”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

At first we were concerned about the motel being on the main road, but the rooms and parking are at the back and we were not aware of any noise. The front area is beautifully landscaped and also has a nice pool area and the hosts are very friendly and knowledgeable about Charleville. The room was spacious and it and the bathroom spotlessly clean. One of the reasons for us booking into the Waltzing Matilda was for the restaurant, but after booking in, we were told that the restaurant was closed ... apparently the owner was the chef and was having a couple of days off, and that there was an Indian restaurant and pub close by. We opted for finding an IGA that was slightly out of town but there are a few smaller cafes and shops near the motel.

We stayed at Waltzing Matilda Motor Inn for 15 nights just recently, situated right in the Main Street of Charleville the position is perfect with just a short walk to Cafes and other shopping. The well landscaped setting of lawns and gardens is peaceful and quiet complimented with an inviting pool, BBQ area and outdoor furniture. Our room was well appointed, nice decor, very clean, cool air cond., a great shower, and the linen too is of good quality! Our longish stay was made easy by our hosts (didn't really want to leave!). Stu. and Terese were so helpful and accommodating, and the evening meals excellent. Many thanks to both of you.

This is a comfortable motel - friendly and attentive service makes it very welcoming. The courtyard layout and free-for-all parking (rather than dedicated space outside the room) is a slight downside but that's only a minor concern. There were also a few mozzies in the room but insect spray supplied! Breakfast was good - but check the timing - we missed it on the first day because it starts and finishes early. Overall, a comfortable choice that proves what a difference good customer service makes - I even got a phone call to let me know I'd left my hot water bottle in the bed - it was not worth driving back hundreds of kms to get it but that's the sort of service people remember!

A group of us stayed on Saturday night and we found the rooms to be very clean and neat. The beds were extremely comfy! I highly recommend the room service breakfast and I'd definitely stay here again next time I visit Charleville :o) Thanks for having us!!

My family and I stayed here for two nights and found the accommodation, location and service to be of a high standard. Owners were very friendly, room clean and well appointed (beds very comfortable) and it's location very close to the town centre.

Recently travelled to Charleville for work - 3 nights and wasn't expecting much in regards to the hotel. We selected Waltzing Matilda based on reviews from Trip Advisor.

The room was SPOTLESS! Cleaner than 4+ star hotel rooms I have stayed at in Brisbane or Melbourne. The owners Stuart & Therese went out of their way to ensure my work colleague and I had everything we needed (including dropping a dress I had left behind to the airport!) Breakfasts were fresh, delicious and hearty. My only disappointment is that we didn't have dinner at the hotel after seeing some of the evening meals!

I recommend this as the best place to stay in Charleville.
