“Best motel in this area.....”
Reviewed 1 May 2012

This motel is ideally located right on the Murray River with every room facing the water with at least some kind of view or different perspective.The owner/managers are very helpful and upon our request changed us from just a room to a special autumn B & B rate long after we had initially booked.

The grounds are amazing with seating and amenities all over the grounds including table and chairs outside our room. Unfortunately we only spent a night here so didn't get to use the pool and sporting areas.

Our room was huge with a double and single bed, big table, chairs with views through the glass sliding doors to the grounds and the river. A small kitchenette is just inside the entry door, wardrobe, hipbath with shower and vanity area across from.
The room was easy to move around in even with all the furniture.Great LCD TV with a enough channels to choose from, Wi Fi working area all made it home from home.Everything was ultra clean with pristine linens and bathroom towels.The lighting was good as the brickwork and furnishings perhaps made it a little dark so just some brighter bedding or pillows needed in the future.However, this may detract from the overall charm of this delightful motel! The reverse cycle heating was fantastic on a very cold night and had no trouble getting this huge room warm.

The breakfast special was worth the few extra dollars paid and it was beautifully cooked and served to our room with a knock on the door. Parking is just outside the room and to go anywhere you will need some transport. A few RSL and sporting clubs are in the area and the hosts gave us a good tip for the daily special at the Rich River Golf Club Bistro (separate review). It was excellent advice.

Really loved it here and will be back again for a longer stay next time we are in Moama.

Enjoy your stay!

You may have been back since your review, and seen the changes we have made at the motel, and we look forward to seeing you again at Cadell in the future.

Recently had the pleasure of staying at this fantastic resort style motel. I went with my cousin and shared a room with a queen and single. The best bit was the beds were amazingly comfortable and the shower with hip bath was great as well. The features of this resort included a solar heated pool,teenis cort,beach vollet ball plus a great playground for the 5 year olds and under . For the seniors like myself the walks in and around the resort were just wonderful with so much wildlife. Breakfast was part of our amazing deal and with all the nearby clubs we didn't spend more than $12.50 on any meal and we enjoyed a 400 gram of steak at Rich River Club. I cant wait to return to this resort and take my 2 grandchildren as I know both them and their parents will enjoy it

Room Tip: AS all rooms face the river and are well off the road you dont have to worry about a good nights sle...

ok. I am biased. I have been coming to this place in Summer for many years with my family. I have been many places around the world, but this is my favorite vacation spot.

At the moment I am up at Cadell, sitting in my hammock at dusk, 20 feet from the shore, having just had (another) great BBQ with friends and family, drinking and eating outside on tables overlooking the river action - at the moment it's the Emmy Lou paddle steamer meandering around the river bend and a couple of brave kookaburras trying to pick up some food scraps right off the BBQ.

This place is perfect for family holidays, and works great when a few families go together - rooms are fairly basic, but clean, and airconditioned, with a kitchenette, and are all in a row, with great views of the river, 30 metres across a great lawn that the kids love to play on. There is also a nice pool and tennis court, and a playground for the little ones.

Nice fishing in the river, but many come to water ski, and there is no better place than cadell for that in Echuca with the great decking by the river, and the small beach where we tie our boat up each night. You are 4 kms out of Echuca/Moama, and only 1km from rich river resort. You do need your own car.

The managers are terrific - working so hard, yet always so friendly and helpful. Room prices are very reasonable, especially when you consider how nice it is out on the lawn and how close you are to the river

a bit out of town - you'll need your own transport. but the setting on a bend of the Murray river is fabulous. all units face onto the river. extensive gardens with BBQs, swimming pool or swim in the river from the bank. kids' play area and boat launching ramp. very peaceful compared to staying in town. no restaurant on site but nearby rsl, golf club and sports club with bistro meals or drive into moama/Echuca for pubs and restaurants, or cook your own in your kitchenette (microwave only). supermarket nearby. rooms are very large, modern, well-appointed and all on ground floor. tends to be booked by holidaymakers for long stays and high proportion of families - they return year after year. can recommend highly.

We just got back from a short stay at the Cadell. We had 3 nights and really enjoyed our stay. The motel is right on the banks of the Murray with a big open grassed area between the rooms and the river. Plenty of tables and chairs to sit out on. The weather was beautiful for this time of the year so i spent a lot of it sitting in the sun with a book. Got to see the houseboats going past. We were kept company by a very friendly duck and lots of birdlife including wild budgies.
The motel is really close to the Rich River Golf Club which was great for us as we had planned to play a round. Also handy for meals. I was planning to take some pics to post with the review but found that the ones on the site are really accurate so didn't bother. The rooms are exceptionally clean and neat with lcd tvs. Bathroom was quite big and although a little on the dated side was really clean and perfectly acceptable. We booked through wotif at $85 per night and felt that we have found a real little bargain place to stay. If you're looking for a great relaxing spot to pull up stumps for a couple of nights or just a stop off on your way through, you couldn't go wrong.
A little thing i did notice which was really appreciated was that although not very busy there were a few other rooms occupied but the owners had everyone spaced out really well. Some places tend to lump the few guests they have all together for some reason, maybe it makes it easier for them or something but is one thing that annoys me. Overall, very happy with our stay and would definately recommend.

The Cadell is a large motel owned and run by a lovely young family. The grounds are huge, with tennis court, pool and kids playground. The rooms have sliding doors at the back allowing access to the river frontage. There are plenty of BBQs and lounge chairs on the lawn and each room has it's own table and chairs just outside for having breakfast overlooking the magnificent Murray River. There's also a private boat ramp for guests. Our room was right on the end and it was very spacious. It was clean, quiet and comfortable, if a little rundown. The bathroom shower area reminded me of the changerooms at the public pools (no curtain or door and a slatted timber bench). There were a few broken tiles and the flyscreen had been removed (sitting outside on the ground - we quickly put it back on as best we could). There was a large flatscreen TV, sofa and table and chairs inside as well. The views of the Murray (it was in flood) were breathtaking at daybreak and dusk. The motel is very close to a number of clubs for dinner and there's a 10% discount at some if you're staying at the motel. Breakfast delivered on time in the morning by the owner was great and good value and again, having it by the banks of the Murray River was priceless! The motel is just over the bridge from Echuca and it takes no time to go back and forth. Our stay here was part of our Victorian road trip and on this particular night it was our anniversary. On checking out the lovely owners presented us with a bottle of wine with their own label, we were so surprised. Considering our full breakfast and the night's stay in total came to $120 ... we were rapt! Yes, we'd stay again and yes, we'd recommend the Cadell.

Thank you so much for your review of Cadell. Apologies for the delay in response - we are just getting familiar with Trip Advisor!

We are so glad to hear you enjoyed your stay and intend to return on your next visit to the area. The room you stayed in was one of our disabled access rooms, hence the large walkin shower you described, so if you mention it next time we will put you in one of our deluxe/family rooms which are set up differently in the bathroom.

Thanks again for your review and we look forward to seeing you again at Cadell in the future.
