“Budget Gem”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

For a budget motel this is a Gem! It is an older style motel that has been recently refurbished. Rooms are clean and well fitted out. Staff were friendly and very helpful. With a family member seriously I'll in hospital we just heeded a firm base for the family to work out of. We were on a tight budget and to have a hot shower, clean room and comfy bed was great. Continental breakfast in the dining room was included and was simple but good. Highlight for us was a guest kitchen that had everything you could need so we didn't need to live off take away. For the price it is everything you could need.

We stayed one night in Swan Hill. The standard rooms are comfortable older motel rooms that have been thoroughly upgraded internally and externally. Deluxe rooms also available. Buffet style continental breakfast in dining room is included - daily papers are provided during your breakfast. Standard room had a good standard of finish at reasonable price. Some traffic noise from traffic rolling by. Not intrusive.

Room Tip: Standard rooms are well presented upgraded rooms with good furnishings.

We had a family room which comprised of a queen bed and bunk beds, so could sleep up to 4.

Large Bathroom, shower had excellent water pressure. Bed was very comfortable. Manager very friendly and helpful.

There was a guest kitchen and laundry. Each room also had plates and cutlery.

The tariff included continental breakfast.

Plenty of parking, 2 min drive to town and attractions.

Exceptionally good value for money!!

Only small negative was noisy room air conditioner.

Would certainly stay again.

Stopped here overnight on a long trip. Had a very sound sleep in a nice, firm, comfortable bed. The decor appeared a bit dated but was very clean and well maintained. Arrived late and the host was very accommodating. Reverse cycle air con and electric blankets made a very cold night comfortable. Breakfast was included! Friendly hosts who clearly take pride in their establishment.

The exterior colour almost turned me off but after reading the reviews I decided to give it a go.
The host was very professional and welcoming. There was a free breakfast included.
Even though the rooms were a little dated, they were very clean and well presented. You can see the owners take pride.
Electric blankets were a nice touch.
Good, cheap motel.

We are returning home from Albury and have stayed over night to try this budget hotel. What a pleasure! Nice clean rooms, great hot showers and a comfy bed... Everything a weary traveller needs! A bonus was the continental breakfast of cereal and toast - and a generous serve as well! This was inlcuded in the price of $89 for a queen room. There is a good TV, wi fi is available (we didnt use it, have our own). The decore is dated but the value for money well and truly wins hands down. Congrats to the operator, we will be back :) .. We dined at the local RSL club and had a top notch Chicken Kiev also great value for money. Thanks Swan Hill! Cheers from Chris and RJ
