“Basic but cosy”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

Stayed here on an overnight on the way home from the snow. Small and basic but clean, and reasonable value for an overnight stop. Convenient to the shops in Cooma and off the main road so fairly quiet. Could use a bedside lamp though!

This was just a stopover after a week skiing before our trip home. It is very basic. There was really no furniture to speak of in the room besides the bed. The jug and coffe cups and glasses were on a bit of old cupboard door on a frame. There are no bedside lamps, no spare pillows( one per person) and no towel rails in the bathroom or toilet roll holders.
It was a little disappointing to enter the room but it was the best priced room in Cooma in the snow season and we were only there to sleep. It is quite adequate for this but don't expect much else.
The heater worked well and we had a new tv. The bathroom is being done up, but it all is not quite there yet.

We stayed at the Swiss Motel for only one night on the way home from the snow with a bunch of friends.

It is a what you pay for is what you get- very basic amenities and outdated. Our first room the toilet did not flush properly so we needed to move a few rooms up. When having a shower in the second room the drain appeared to be also blocked. Our friends one room down however did not have any issues with the plumbing- only a short power outage when turning on the heating.

I would stay here again if my wife was not with me (got a bit over the whinging) and I needed a cheap place to stay.

Arriving late from Sydney, we rang to book a room. And secured the best rate. The man left the key for us and it was great.

The heater and electric blanket were on, the shower was steaming hot and it was perfect for an overnight stopover. It is one block off the main road so quiet. There was a kettle in the room. The bed was very comfortable.

If you are the type of traveller who needs a GHD or a full kit of makeup on your stopover you won't like this place.

If you appreciate the basics and don't want to spend the earth give the Swiss Motel a try.

I would return for sure.

Congratulations to Tony and Warwick for the changes at the Swiss motel Cooma.Love the new kitchens and the Massage showers in the new beautifully fitted bathrooms were just what was needed after a day or two skiing.Will definitely be back next season and am looking forwards to even more great changes. I would definitely recommend the Swiss hotel to my friends and family.

Stayed overnight in a two bedroom apartment on the way to Jindabyne. Arrived quite late and John (owner) had turned on the heaters and left out tea and coffee making facilities. Bathroom facilities were clean, modern and above the standard of the average motel. Cannot fault the service and for the price we paid, Swiss Motel was a very comfortable overnight stay.

While the room was clean and there was an oil heater provided for warmth, it is important to realise that the Swiss Motel is definitely a budget motel. No soap is provided. No shampoo is provided. There is no hair dryer available. No credit card facilities are available for payment. Sadly, Swiss Motel does not score very high on the customer service scale either.

For the few extra dollars, we would opt to stay elsewhere next time we pass through Cooma.
