I have now become an annual visitor, and this place is perfect for a relaxing getaway. Rooms are clean, well appointed, and serviced daily, each one overlooks the lawns and then the river.
BBQ's and casual seating on the lawns. Staff are friendly and efficient. There is a boat ramp on site although a little steep. Off season a great time for a quiet break.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the boat ramp are the quietest.

Cadell's was a great choice for us. Clean, comfortable and spacious rooms in lovely garden surrounds. Each room looked directly across a wide, well kept lawn to the Murray - ample outdoor furniture, bbq's, etc. gardens allow easy separation of children/adult areas, if wanted. Very generous breakfast offered. Friendly, obliging, hosts happy to suggest local activities. (Kingfisher Barmah tour is worthwhile, and the paddle steamer/winery tour included a truly special lunch). Some other local accom. looked ok, but none had such a lovely setting - wld suit any age group. We'd certainly return.

Thank you so much for such a lovely review of your stay with us. So glad you enjoyed the space and scenery - it truly is a beautiful setting, and also some of the local attractions. The package you enjoyed is one of our most popular and we too enjoy the fabulous meals at the winery there in yet another unique river setting. Look forward to seeing you next time.

Friends recommended this motel and I can see why they keep coming back. We will certainly be back after enjoying our stay so much. We loved being able see the river from our double glass sliding door but the real joy was having meals at the barbecues and relaxing at the outdoor settings by the river side. Incredibly restful. So much space, lovely gardens. and nature on your doorstep.; even saw kookaburras. Rooms are clean and spacious and staff were always friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: no tip necessary as every room has a double sliding glass door facing the river and the motel is on...

So glad to hear you had a great stay with us and you are planning to come back again soon.
The kookaburras are certainly a wonderful part of our bush setting and we love their frequent visits - especially when they smell a barbecue!
Very happy to hear you enjoyed the rooms and service along with our great position, thank you for your review and we look forward to seeing you again at Cadell in the future.

I have never given a negative review but this place takes the cake.
Let's start with walking in the door to spot a wolf spider hanging on the drapes. Thankfully hubby put it back in the garden to see another day, then we started spotting millipedes on the floor, I'm talking, the kitchen, the lounge, the bathroom, and the shower walls. Last count was over 30 of the slimy creatures. To end the night our kettle stops working. Off to the office I go to get a replaced kettle and to mention the invasion of the millipedes. Only to be given excuses.the sad part was when leaving the office I noticed a young family in a room with their baby on the floor. Let's hope they were not invaded. Note to management. Customers come first, If you want returning guests.
Fumigate Now.

Hi Tracy, How very disappointing to read your review. We are sorry you didn't enjoy your stay at Cadell.
When you brought your kettle to our office and explained it had worked earlier and had stopped, we apologized and simply replaced it for you.
I was surprised by how many millipedes you saw. Obviously others weren't as affected, happy to have children on the floors without a concern. I explained, not excused, the current presence of millipedes outside; this can occur now and again after prolonged dry weather and then heavy rains. We spray continually the perimeter of the buildings to stop them getting under doors, and this usually works well. After you told me you had them in your room, my husband went and swept the verandahs again and checked the unoccupied rooms surrounding you, and found few outside and only one had come under the door in one unoccupied room. We are sorry for your experience none the less. They are harmless but are annoying, we know this and work continually to make sure they don't bother people.
Putting guests first is of utmost importance to us and evident in our other reviews as something we achieve at. Being available/open after hours in case guests need us - like in your case still open after hours meaning you could easily have your kettle changed - is one simple example of how we are available to guests to help in any way to make their stay more enjoyable. Thankfully we get this right most of the time and apologise that you felt we weren't putting you first, and will look at how we can improve this in the future.

Set in a quiet part on Moama, past shops, service station & other accommodation places. Google maps does give you a false location but it's only another 30seconds further along & there you will find the only place to stay! Absolute river frontage! Helpful, friendly greeting on check in. Rooms have a sliding door & screen to the back & standing there at your back door is the iconic Murray! Room was clean with simple appointments & all you really needed. Bed firm & may need replacing. DVD player worked a treat. Such a brilliant idea of having private access steps down to the river. May pose tricky for elder/less mobile folk but use hand rails, take your time & enjoy the jetty which is a few inches from the waters edge. Peaceful & serene even with the odd houseboat/water skiers/jet ski going past but that is part if the rivers charm. Room service breakfast was hearty, hot & on time delivered by the friendly gent owner. Recommend the Rich River Golf Club for dinner, they have a courtesy bus on the hour & will collect/drop off at front of motel. Great food, very friendly.
Polite suggestion for the lady owner to make some conversation upon check out, how was your stay, where are you traveling to, etc. Seemed to be a little distracted with kids in the other room. Excellent value for money, will stay again!

We have stayed at the Cadell a number of times and everything is always perfect. Starting with great friendly service , excellent facilities, large spacious rooms all overlooking well kept gardens and the Murray, what more could you need for a great weekend. The Cadell is ideal for family groups or couples alike and we look forward to our next stay.
