you get what you see. The Warby is a clean and tidy hotel without the bells and whistles. If you are looking for a clean hotel with breakfast in Wangaratta, this is the place to stay. The check in process was friendly and quick. Checkout was the same. It is a popular destination for business travellers. (firm mattress)

In summary a serviceable motel - a bit tired and a bit pricey for what you get.

I stayed in a standard room located upstairs. It had been partly renovated with new style floor tiles and painted walls but the basic remained the same. The bed was hard and the bed coverings cheap. The air-conditioner was straight out of the 70's and struggled to cool the room on a 30 degree day. The room had low wattage globes in it giving the room an oppressive' cave' like ambience. A small pool with a token palm tree is tucked away in the corner.

On the good side of the ledger is its location which is within walking distance of the main shops and restaurants. It is also laid out in a way where traffic noise is not an issue. The room was also very clean.

This motel presents itself as a 4 star motel - maybe it was 20 years ago but now its closer to a 3 star standard that charges a 4 star price.

Stopped at this motel to break up a long trip. We were greeted at the door with "who are you" in a cranky voice. The lady came down and literally threw the door open and asked "what have you got" obviously asking what room we had booked in a pissed voice. My wife replied a family room which she grabbed the keys a threw them across the counter. I work in various hotel chains in sydney and know customer satisfaction is paramount. I have worked in these hotel chains for 15 years. She promtly closed the door behind us. We did arrive at 10.30pm in the evening as we were stuck in bush fires and had lost time. Still no reason to be rude.It shouldn't take much effort to be polite. I would avoid this place on my return trip and future trips.

We searched for accommodation in Wangaratta to break a long trip back to Melbourne. This motel is located close to town and is reasonably priced for a family of four. However, the QS bed was very uncomfortable and the room was tired-looking and overly deodorised.

We stayed in a family room which had a queen bed in the main room and 2 singles crammed together in avery small room opposite the bathroom. It was $150 which I thought was a little pricey for a room that was very out dated in appearance (apricot laminex benches, cream painted brick walls and that bubbly looking cement all over the ceiling). It was however very clean, well looked after and maintained. The lady on the front desk was a delight to deal with. Great shower, toaster, microwave etc allowing us to prepare a simple breakfast for ourselves. I wouldnt rush to book another night here mainly because the room was small and too outdated for the price.

Very outdated furnishings. Cracked bathroom floor tiles, peeling chrome shower head. I would rate this a 3 star, definitely not a 4 star. Clean, but not what I would expect from a '4 star' accommodation.

Room Tip: On busy highway so choose a room located at the rear.

A very clean and comfortable hotel - with friendly staff. The accommodation consists of ground and first floor units with parking outside or near your room. Only stayed for a night - the hotel appears to be popular with tradesman and business vehicles in the almost full car park. No noise issues, all fine and would return. The free WiFi they offer should be standard offerings by all other hotels. Food outlets are within walking distance. Another good clean place to stay.

Room Tip: I prefer ground floor units re luggage and stairs, however the vehicles are parked close by the room...
