“Wonderful Host!!!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014 via mobile

Murray, the proprietor, does everything to make you feel at home! Although the New Criterion is in town, it is a very charming B & B. the rooms are comfortable and clean!! Breakfast is basic. Fruit, bread, cereals, juices & coffee. Murray personally directed us to the free on-site parking, even cleaning our windshield before we left!! Would stay again!!

Felt very welcome and looked after. Great to relax in the lounge. Complementary movies and wifi. Nice environment Neely renovated with historical charm, excellent location for a small function or weekend away. Better than many 5 star hotels in the service provided.

A little ostentatious. Clean rooms and spacious. Nice beds and even electric blankets. Not very functional shower/basin....located in different space. Friendly but overwhelming reception. Overall, quite nice in an old 1930 revamp pub. The breakfast was included but terribly basic.

Came across this gem by chance about 18 months ago when stopped in the town of Narrandera. Probably the best B&B you will find on the Newell. It's an old building that's been tastefully renovated by the owner Murray ( Top Geezer!! ) Everything smells fresh and clean. Great bedding, a lovely TV/Reading lounge. Breakfast is continental but included in the tariff and does not disappoint. You won't regret staying here!! Only thing missing here is a nice bar. Murray say's he's 'working on it'!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great. All are as good as eachother!

We had a very happy time staying at the New Criterion Hotel over the weekend. The hotel has lots of charm, very comfortable and clean. The proprietor Murray, was very helpful and shared his local knowledge regarding dinning and the history of Narrandera. We spent the evening sitting on the upstairs balcony watching the sun go down. There is also a lovely old fashion lounge room upstairs for meeting other guests. We highly recommend this location for a stop over.

Across the Hay plain to the sunny south coast and then back to Adelaide. Stayed with Murray again; a pleasure as always. On the way back we had with us a bunch of south coast prawns and a couple of cold beers for dinner. Murray invited us to use his kitchen for preparing salad and use of plates, etc. Sat in the courtyard and enjoyed it all. No fuss, just a great host. We left the kitchen how we found it, headed off in the morning and thanked the day we found Murray!!

We had the pleasure of staying here on our trip north from Melbourne up the Newel Hwy.
The family room was clean and pleasant with excellent air-conditioning - very necessary as it was 43C on the day! Murray was lovely and made sure we had everything we needed. Highly recommend this location for a road trip pitstop.
