Thanks again Ann for your review! We love to sit out by the wood fire and do exactly that, watch footy! It's a great area for our guests to enjoy especially if there is a group! Our cooked breakfasts continue to be popular, some of our previous guests have even called in for breakfast on their way through to Sydney!...

We have stayed at this motel a few times. We were bold over this time as our room had had a "make over" AND it was extremely modern and very swish. For a county motel it had everything you would need. (Next time we will bring some raisin bread to toast. ) it also has a microwave/cutlery etc. It has...

Stayed at the Avondel Motor Inn for a night on transit from Jindabyne to Warnambool. Gary, the host, was most welcoming. The room was spacious, very clean and modern and well appointed. The swimming pool was super after a hot day riding the motorcycle. Very impressed with the lodgings and service. well done. Highly recommended.

We visit Benalla once or twice a year and this is the least offensive of any Benalla accommodation. As regular visitors would know, Benalla lost its direct connection to the Melbourne - Sydney rat run years ago when the Hume Highway was rebuilt away from the town, and the motels were all built in the boom times when the highway,...
