We had a comfortable stay at Avondel. The motel is very well maintained and the beds were very comfortable. We stayed in the 2 bed room unit. It consists of a normal sized motel room plus one separate bedroom with 2 singles. The downside was the traffic noise at night - the 2 bed room unit is at the front...

We had 3 nights in Benalla last week looking at horse studs. The motel was updated with good beds, friendly service and great value breakfasts. We happened to be staying while the World Champion Glider competition was going on and motel was busy. Staff took it in their stride and made the experience a good one.

Got stranded in Benalla for a night after a break down on the way to Sydney. We were lucky enough to score a room at the Avondel even though it was about 11pm. Staff were absolutely lovely, they came and picked us up from the depot we'd been towed to, and even gave us a lift to the train station...

Simple, comfortable rooms with everything you need. Super clean, Close to Benalla centre, We would be keen to come back again! The weather at the beginning of November has been a little variable, so no using the small pool this time.

Just wanted to write a quick review on our quick overnight stay on Friday October 28, we came upon this motel after we had to find accommodation with short notice after the loss of a loved one Monday & the town where the funeral was had all been booked out due to the local Jazz festival, so we were very...

I received a very friendly greeting at this comfortable motel on the main route through Benalla. The room was clean and well appointed, with a soft bed and a good sized bathroom. The highlight was the cooked breakfast: very generous servings, well prepared and delicious. A decent hotel and take away shops are a short walk away and the heart...

Thanks so much for your review, we are so glad you had a comfortable stay with us! There is nothing like having a toasty warm room and a comfortable bed when your out on the road. We have updated a lot since taking over May 2015 and it's awesome to hear we are on the right track! Thanks again!!

It's so seldom to come across a couple owning and running an establishment who are both outstanding, setting the mark for polite, efficient, professional service, and with a fine sense of humour to boot. A double booking quandary, not the motel's error, was solved promptly, with a lovely can-do attitude. I can't wait to stay here again.

We recently stayed at Avondel following a bereavement in the family. All we wanted was a good bed, clean and spacious room and easy walk to facilities. It has it all. Lovely hosts who served a quality breakfast. Stay there!
