Tooleybuc is a small rural town, on the New South Wales/Victorian border, on the River Murray. On road trips, it is a little over half way between Canberra and Adelaide and about the same between Wangaratta and Adelaide. I was on the latter trip from Wangaratta to Adelaide.
The Tooleybuc motel is in town just off the main road.
The rooms are large and well appointed with queen size or single beds, a small flat panel TV, a dining table with two chairs and a sofa. A kitchen area is included with a kitchen sink, microwave, refrigerator, toaster and kettle. Cutlery and crockery are also provided. Tea and coffee are available. There is reverse cycle airconditioning.
If you order a continental breakfast it is delivered the night before and you can prepare it in your own time.
The bathroom is adequate with shower, wash basin and toilet. Towels, face washers, a bath mat and small soaps are included, but my room did not have shampoo.
There is a large salt water swimming pool and a children’s pool. A free gas Barbeque is available. There is a guest’s laundry. Wireless broadband is available at a fee.
The tariff was less than $A100, including a continental breakfast.
The river Murray is over the road from the motel and there is a nice park.
The motel does not have a restaurant but there is a hotel almost next door and a large club with an excellent bistro nearby. The club also has poker machines. There is a golf course next to the club.
In summary, it is a surprising motel for a very small country town.
