Stayed here on our way south, rooms are large, well air conditioned and very quiet. The bathroom was large and bright and very clean and the little kitchen was very good and easy to use. The bed was extremely comfortable and we enjoyed sitting out on our little terrace for drinks with friends who were also staying there with us....

I stayed here for one night while on a road trip through country New South Wales and Victoria. I chose it because of reviews on Tripadvisor and because I wanted to stay somewhere with a view of the river. The room was spacious with a kitchenette (but no toaster as apparently too many pieces of burnt toast have created problems...

The rooms were great, they were clean and spacious for two, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom looked renovated and up to date. The only downside (this didn't affect my review on stars as it's minor) was they they charged $10 for a small cereal box, some long life milk and a juice that was due to expire in...

We overnighted at the Lawson in mid January. Our room overlooked the Murrumbidgee and was amongst the best we have stayed in anywhere. The level of luxury for the price was excellent value. Reception was very welcoming and helpful with anything we needed. Would highly recommend the Lawson for an overnight or extended stay.

This is the second visit ... No restaurant however Pot and Kettle in short walking distance. Nice accommodations ... Clean and comfortable, bathrooms clean and kitchen facilities adequate as long as you did not want toast ... No toaster due to fire risk. Can hear planes from the RAAF base in the distance ...
