The room was spacious and clean with a nice spa and a good bed. The advertised free wifi was useless, only working in public areas. Outside. Cold. Raining. The only seating provided for the room was an aluminium outdoor setting with no cushions. Cold and uncomfortable.

My husband and I stayed for two recently. It was one the cheapest Motels in Echuca. Breakfast was included in the price, cereal and toast. The lady that ran the place was fabulous and very friendly. I would recommend the place to everyone. Could not fault it.

The room was clean and welcoming. An older style motel, which was on the edge of town, but warm and cosy. Breakfast is provided as part of the tarrif. Kitchen staff were rushed as the motel was full. Good value. Would recommend to others.

Although old, they were clean has comfy beds and provided the little extras that families on a budget look for. Like a microwave, toaster, air-con, two fans and Karen even gave us some extra cutlery.

Fantastic hosts, made us very welcome and very helpful. Room had plenty of space and very comfortable bed. The only thing that got to me was the room smelled of other people's smelly feet. Breakfast is also included in price. Would stay again.

Thanks for your great review.....sorry about the smell. We have replaced curtains in some of the rooms and I think it is the blockout backing that smells. We have addressed it......thanks again and look forward to seeing you if you travel through Echuca again...Happy 2016 More

From the moment Rod and I booked in we felt like we were part of their family. Karen and Dean made sure that we knew where all the amenities were, where the aircon switch was etc. Told us about the free shuttles to the local clubs. They were so friendly. I would highly recommended them to everyone. We stayed there... More
