“The best motel on our trip to Melbourne from Sunshine Coast”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

We stayed at the Tuckerbox on our way to Melbourne in May 2013 and we were so impressed with the standard of this Motel it was excellent. My husband is recovering from a recent Bone Marrow Transplant, and cleanliness was paramount. This Motel we would recommend to anyone value,cleanliness, friendly service, it was like a home away from home. We also stayed there on our way back from Melbourne and again it was super to stay in such a lovely motel, we can't recommend it highly enough.

My wife and I stayed the night of the 27th April. The rooms and separate bathroom are spotlessly
clean and very comfortable. The motel is in a wonderful location just off the highway with
a service station opposite which was very handy. Breakfast was delivered to our room and we used the motel as a base to explore the district.

Stopped here for a night on trip from Melbourne to Sydney. Very spacious newly decorated rooms. We even had a couch. Spotlessly clean. Separate toilet and vanity great. Heated pool. Wished we could have stayed longer!! We were travelling on Good Friday and most restaurants in town were closed. Chose room service at the Tuckerbox. Lovely home cooked meal and reasonable price. One small improvement could be heating in bathroom for the chilly Gundagai mornings. Regardless I will be going back to Gundagai and this motel!

Room Tip: Room 2 was great.

This hotel has the best showers I've ever found! My room was spotlessly clean, the linen immaculate and they'd even opened the windows to let in some fresh air. I can also recommend the room service - nice homestyle food, generously portioned and delivered right on time. They also get a big thumbs up for the crispy bacon in the morning!

Stopped off here for the night en route to Melbourne and what a lovely treat this place is. Angela and Larry have only been running the place for 6 months, but what pros they are already! The room was very spacious, spotlessly clean, light and airy. We ordered continental breakfast and opted for Larry to deliver it that evening - plentiful and very tasty. We had also opted for a room with a spa bath - a lovely relaxing start to the day - and the WiFi meant that we managed to catch up on e-mails from home. Great location if you are doing the trek from Sydney to Melbourne, great hosts and a relaxing place. What more could you need? Thanks Angela and Larry - if we come this way again, we will be back!

Staff were very obliging and helpful.
Room was large, quiet and comfortable. Felt like home, and we felt rested in the morning. I could not fault this hotel one iota. Very impressed!
Bathroom was clean, and room had separate toilet and washing facilities.
Kitchenette was well fitted out with good sink. Good large mugs and nice crockeries. All facilities were very clean and in really good condition. I will definitely be returning!!
