Was finding it a little difficult to locate accommodation around Beechworth on Sat 25th 2012. Most were full bit a thoughtful Motel proprietor at a full Motel pointed me to Beechworth On Bridge just outside of Beechworth on the Wangaratta-Beechworth road (Bridge Road).
Given most other motels were full up, I reckoned this one was going to be a shelter only.
Entering the driveway, it presented a minimalist boutique charm. No concrete jungle but a low key well-kept garden.
Collecting the key, the proprietor was most pleasant and business-like; and I put it in that order deliberately because she immediately observed that I was tired and flustered from 10 hours driving and a frustrating hunt for accommodation.
Milk for tea and coffee was a generous 600ml of fresh milk and not those stingy 10ml cups of UHT.
And here’s the best part, opened the door and the room smelled fresh and clean - where was the Eau de mo-toilette???
I bought a double and the beds were presented like they are in a top end city hotel, crisp sheets and elegant bed-linen across first-grade mattresses.
A generous television, even the rubbish ad recycle bins had a touch of class about them.
The bathroom was spotless, draped with generous thick white fluffy towels and generous shampoos and conditioners.
I travel a bit and I can’t remember a better motel. Price was $120 for the night and worth it.
