Chiltern Colonial Motor Inn
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Chiltern
Reviewed 12 February 2014

The Chiltern Colonial Motor Inn is a very convenient and comfortable place to stay. It is very reasonably priced. In our view Chiltern is a hidden gem and this Motor Inn is a comfortable and convenient way to enjoy the area. It is close to the main town which has a relatively well preserved history including an interesting literary story. The town has real character.

We have enjoyed bird watching and the town is home to a number of interesting bird species and if you're lucky you might even see the endangered Regent Honeyeater. We've combined exploring the remnant gold mining history with bird watching. In some cases the old mine dams are rehabilitated sites and become important habitat for birds. The Information Centre, quite near the Motel, has good guides to the local history and a particularly good guide to bird trails.

The town has a good bakery, hotel and one or two nice places to eat. Bicycling around the area is a nice way to see things, too.

Room Tip: We love it, but if you don't like the sound of a clattering train on the tracks out side your ro...

I was impressed by the Chiltern Colonial. Service was consistently friendly and welcoming. My room was spacious, comfortable, spotlessly clean, and well presented. The air conditioning worked perfectly. The mattress was most comfortable. The nearby railway line didn't disturb my sleep at all. Breakfast was hot and tasty. I appreciated the free wifi. In terms of value, the room charge was very moderate and the accommodation was a higher standard than many other country motels I've stayed in that charged far more. Chiltern is an ideal stopover point on the Hume Highway and it's also an interesting, historic place to visit.

Stayed for four nights and wish it was longer.
A fantastic location, only 1 km from the Highway. Despite being adjacent to the main North-South train line, the trains didn't really disturb me.
Rooms were well appointed (great flat screen TV), spacious, cleaning fantastic, staff friendly and accommodating, comfortable beds and parking right at your door.
Air conditioning and electric blankets kept the rooms nice and warm.
Complimentary WiFi a great inclusion.
I'll be staying here again, for sure!

This was a one night stopover on the way home at the end of a motoring holiday.
Clean and comfortable, spacious room.
I only wish I'd heard some trains!
It was really hot outside but the air-con worked very well.
There was a seasonal bug notice, warning to keep doors and windows closed. This was a necessary warning - and spoke well of the good seals on those windows and doors! When I went outside in the morning there was a carpet of insects that had gathered and died on the doorstep overnight. An intriguing sight but glad they had been unable to enter my room.

The rooms are very nice and a good size, service is excellent and the beds very comfortable.
If you are a light sleeper the nearby train line may be a problem. All amenities are included such as flat screen TV, Microwave etc and we found the price to be good value.

We were wanting to stay in Wangaratta but all booked out because of car racing. We were referred here by a Wangaratta Motel owner and we were not disappointed. Good size rooms, fabulous mattress, large TV and a couch that was extremely comfortable. Very good all round value. Once or twice a train noise but the sound did not intrude. we would stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 2 3 or 13 14 15 are away from the raiway line

about 20-30 Kms from Rutherglen, Wnagaratta, Beechworth, Wodonga this is a good central hotel in a sort-of historic village. The town is old, but the Motel only about 20 yrs old. It is very well maintained and really good value, with all ground floor units.

The bed was comfortable, big screen TV, M/wave, toaster etc., and good manchester makes for a comfortable night. No real drawbacks, but is close to rail line. Swim pool rather public and unheated, but in summer would be v good and convenient to all units.

I felt the breakfast range was fine and price reasonable.

So, it's central and good base to visit places in the region - worth a stay!
