Murray Downs Resort-Swan Hill Accommodation
Ranked #7 of 13 Hotels in Swan Hill
Reviewed 14 March 2013

On arrival was greeted by Matt who was friendly & made us feel welcome. The room was ok, dated but comfortable. The pool was filthy & small, being over the long weekend they were busy & there was many people in the pool, the next day though the pool was still dirty. Breakfast was nice, it gets delivered to you. The bistro & cafe had nice food but closes early during the week.
Gold course was great but needed to be marked more clearly, maybe a map on the score card would be a good idea.
Overall the resort was ok, nothing special.

Stayed: March 2013, travelled with friends

Stayed here for work and must say im impressed with this resort. We got a corporate rate and the rooms are clean, spacious and very modern.
The bathroom is clean and spacious with a nice shower.
The restaurant is awesome. Well priced and good food.

I stay often at Murray Downs and find it consistently good! Reception staff very welcoming and helpful, rooms always spotlessly clean, decor excellent and everything very comfortable. Best for me is the peace and quiet ensuring a good night's sleep. Having said that, there are a few minor maintenance points - air conditioners could be upgraded as a little noisy but effective, bar patches in carpet. But overall the rooms are good - continuously being painted inside & along verandahs. The grounds are lovely - pretty flowering garden beds, green lawns and shade trees for summer. Drive carefully as there are kangaroos in area. Did not use pool or spa. Dining is OK - expect standard bistro meals veg/chips & self serve salad bar. Meal prices competitive. Its only 10 minutes into Swan Hill with a variety of restaurants to choose from & some will deliver for a fee.

Room Tip: For solo traveller I choose Room 21.

Nice check in. Room has 2 dangerous powerpoints where the switch has popped out of plug a bit. There is considerable noise when neighboring rooms use showers(630am in our case) Showers are dangerous, randomly go cold then to scalding hot.
A positive is very reasonable minibar prices and breakfast.

Pool is not heated, indoor spa is but if you want the jets on that will be $1 per 10 minutes.

No good dining on site and 10mins to town.

Clubhouse serves food but both times it was average.

No daily room service.

We stayed here in January 2012. It was lovely, the environment, the atmosphere, (the weather) and the facilities. The reason I didn't give it a 5 was that there were a few niggly things wrong in the room and I guess the photos on the internet did not resemble the room we actually got so I felt a bit let down when I got there - maybe they need more photos on the website of the actual rooms.
My husband loved the golf, my daughter loved the pool and I loved the break.
It isn't too far from town - I think I calculated 7km? (Googlemaps says 5.5km)
The food at the Bistro was nice and the cafe there was good for a morning coffee.
We definitely would go back there.

Room Tip: Check - they say on the website that they have newly renovated rooms

Last visited 4 years ago and so am able to judge changes over this period.

Positive. Lovely golf course, very quiet location. Good dining.

Negative The rooms are showing neglect of maintainance. The airconditioner was missing its cover and blew black gunk into the room for the first couple of hours of use. Furniture is showing wear and tear and the room needed repaint and probably a total makeover. The wife spent the night exterminating cockcroaches which reulted in me having a less than peaceful repast as she was giving a blow by blow account of her actions.

We love this resort so it is a shame we will not return again until some changes are made.

We loved the generous quantity of towels, soap tea & coffee provided. However the pests have won out over a return visit, darn!!!
