    « County hotel for business travel »

    Stayed at this hotel in April when traveling for business. Rooms was large and reasonable well appointed incl air conditioning. Breakfast served in room. Centrally located in town so everything is nearby including pubs and restaurants. Reception Staff/Manager was very helpful and pleasant

    « Job interview »

    My daughter had a job interview in Swan hill. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Room had everything we needed. Restaurant great. Would more could we want for a night. news is she got the job. So we will be back.

    « Overnight in Swan Hill »

    Needed to stay overnight and Geoff & Wendy ensured booking in was seamless, lovely big room, a working desk with easy to access power points to charge my mobile paraphanalia, queen size bed had electric blankets for the cold nights, had dinner in their restaurant where young Jacob looked after my needs, all good. Ordered poached eggs on toast for brekkie AND they were hot and soft, thanks to the cook. Everything was great and ticked all the boxes, thanks guys ??

    « Friendly choice for weary traveler »

    Swan hill was busy with many motels full. We had finished a long drive from Adelaide when we were tired. This was perfect. The staff were lovely. Nothing out of the ordinary with the rooms. However, our room was clean, warm and comfortable and the we slept like logs on the comfy bed. We were given a friendly good bye in the morning to make a lovely start to our day. Our first choice next time.

    « Great place to stay »

    Stayed overnight with my father (93!!) and had a great night. Room really comfortable, very clean, and had dinner in the restaurant - fantastic. Thanks to Geoff and staff for your hospitality. Will visit again. Gail

    « Good place to stop ... »

    Welcoming motel on the main road in Swan Hill, close to town centre with the added advantage of a restaurant on site. My room was quiet, clean, comfortable, warm and I wanted for nothing. I had dinner in restaurant that night, saved going out again and it was very good and reasonably priced. I had breakfast delivered to my room the next morning but could have eaten in the restaurant if I wished.

    « Amazing!!! »

    We had a meal at the restaurant. The food was fantastic. We had lamb rack and chicken breast which was so tasty. For dessert we had an affogato and the apple crumble tart (to die for!!!) The staff were so friendly and made us feel very welcome. The atmosphere was lovely. Will DEFINITELY return at some point on our next return to the area. Thank you so much!!

    « Good overnight option »

    Stayed overnight whilst travelling through and found this motor in as a very pleasant option. Whilst a little aged, it is a very tidy and clean motel. The bathroom appears to have been recently renovated. Breakfast was also quite nice, cooked fresh and the best scrambled eggs we have found in our road trip. Would recommend to any traveller.

    « One night stop over in Swan Hill »

    Stopped here for one night recently and was pleasantly surprised. Room was spacious and very clean and bed comfortable. Good location close to town. The onsite restaurant was a bonus, we had a most enjoyable dinner there.

    « Regular business trip »

    Staying in Swan Hill on a regular basis it is always a pleasure to be looked after by good people like Geof and Wendy. The rooms are always comfortable and clean and the restaurant menu is always good value. I would highly recommend the Burke and Wills for both business people and those travelling.

    « Good quality motel »

    Very happy with the rooms at this lovely central motel in Swan Hill. They are modern & bathroom recently renovated with a rain shower!! Easy walk to town & very comfortable. Would recommend. The motel was busy which is testament to its modernization. Good size TVs - tea & coffee making in the room. The pool - which I didn't use - was very well maintained.

    « Fabulous apartment! »

    Had a beautiful stay at the Burke and Wills motel in swan hill, I was lucky enough to have the apartment for my stay. Couldn't have asked for more, staff were amazing, rooms are exceptionally clean and well appointed. MY TOP PICK FOR SWAN HILL! Oh and be sure to dine in at the motels restaurant, "Charlie Gray's" you will not be disappointed its first class!!

    « Clean with great location »

    Clean and neat room with all the amenities you would expect. Clean and neat layout of motel. Walking distance to river and the Main Street. We had one of the rooms down the back of the property with a spa. Honestly one of the best size spas we have come across in this type of accommodation. And very decent size bathroom.

    « Fairly decent for the price »

    This was a nicely appointed motel with easily accessible rooms. Showers were hit an miss with water temp varying through shower but not too bad. Most annoying part was Air Con unit didn't blow over the bed meaning the room was quite hot through the night. However, restaurant had good food and was reasonably priced.

    « A little bit disappointed »

    After I saw the photos in Expedia I was expecting a really nice room. But our room interior was a little bit old. The pool outside is nice but the water was cool. Internet was ok. Good thing: you have a mini bar and you can order breakfast. The Motel is in the city center and just a few steps away from everything. The walk and the restaurant that the receptionist recommended was great. We would come back again but with lower expectations of the room.

    « Well appointed and very clean »

    Good location with very good rooms. Close to everything with easy access. Nice pool with some lawn and outdoor setting. Restaurant but was closed over Easter when we visited. Motel booked out ...others around town had vacancies so they must be doing it right

    « Work trip »

    Good location, nice clean hotel, friendly accommodating staff. The facilities were clean and up to date. The bed comfortable and the bathroom somewhat luxurious. Good wifi included. Overall a good stay.

    « True value »

    Great to be able to give a positive review. Everything about this place is easy, the staff, the rooms and the food. The food was magnificent, the bed above average, the room a little old but comfortable and clean. The bigger hotels should take a look at what service and value for money means by spending some time here.

    « Business »

    Great people, clean and comfortable room. Excellent meal selection available in the restaurant. The rooms are big enough to spread out and catch up with paperwork. I would highly recommend this for hotel for business or pleasure trips.

    « Very comfy and friendly stay »

    Stayed two nights and had a relaxing and comfortable stay. Staff super friendly and helpful. Pool was wonderful to use in the hot weather. Great location: just a walk to the main street shops. Rooms looked fresh and well kept.

    « Not what I expected »

    I dont like leaving negative reviews, but unfortunately was disappointed with this hotel, although I believe it was just the room we had, We were given the apartment, and it was just very old, it was very clean, I just felt let down that it didnt look like the photos on the website. we didnt look at the facilities, so I cant really comment on those,

    « Best Healthy Hotel Breakfast »

    A great generous room with a big bathroom that could easily accomodate two. After 2 weeks of travelling the hotel restaurant breakfast : homemade muesli with real fruit, nuts, seeds and generous fresh berries - strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, thick Greek yoghurt and quality honey. Yum! Dinner at Charlie Gray's also commendable. Thoroughly recommend!!

    « No complaints »

    Stayed here a couple of times for business. Good size rooms, comfortable bed and the internet works well. Its located within walking distance to most restaurant options. I'd recommend getting breakfast elsewhere as the menus not great.

    « great quality budget hotel »

    Exactely what you would hope for and expect in a small country town motel. Very clean. Friendly efficient check in. large rooms. everything in working condition. Good tv, great aircon. parking right at door. No road noise as rooms are set back from road. Has room service - great for both dinner and breakfast. Only small negative - a little outside noise from other guests and birds - poor soundproofing - ie i could actually see through the gap between the door frame and the bricks.

    « Clean, Friendly reception & well positioned »

    Stayed in Room 19 right at the back end of a single storey group of rooms. As we were on a motorcycle would definitely recommend asking for 1 of the single storey rooms as they have level parking whereas the double storey block has slightly sloped parking. A swimming pool separates the 2 blocks. Very clean & inviting pool & was offered a pool towel from Reception. My only negative was the fan was a bit noisy even on the lowest setting but the room did have a very effective a/c. To our surprise Rm 19 also had a huge 2 person spa on the large bathroom. Would definitely stay here again. Also right in the heart of the township.

    « Quiet and comfortable »

    We stayed overnight after a function. Our room was comfortable and generously sized. We made use of the pool which was clean and in beautiful surrounds. The staff were friendly and helpful. Overall a wonderful place to stay.

    « Comfortable stay »

    It was exactly as expected. A good room with good facilities. Noting fancy; just exactly what is needed is this kind of hotel. Very friendly staff, very clean and the location is very good close to the city centre

    « Perfect place to stay »

    I stayed here for two nights for work. Checking in was a breeze and reception staff were very friendly and helpful. I found the room to be very spacious and well appointed. The bed was very comfortable and had multiple pillows to use. The bathroom was beautiful and recently renovated, with floor to ceiling tiles, a large mirror and vanity with loads of surface area to lay out my things. The only minor gripe I have about the room was she lack of water pressure in the shower, but the over sized, shower head was lovely and relaxing. It was quite warm during my stay but I did not make use of the pool as there was quite a lot of debris in it. Access and parking are very good, entry via the front of the property on Campbell Street and exit out the back of the property onto Beveridge Street, with angle parking on the property. I had enjoyed two meals in the motel restaurant, Dinner - I had the Lamb cutlets and beetroot salad, the lamb was perfectly cooked and the salad was well dressed and the following morning I had Breakfast - Scrambled eggs, toast, crispy bacon and baked beans. The breakfast was a rather large portion and I could not finish it all! I was most impressed that the toast was actually buttered with butter and not dirty margarine! I will be looking forward to staying here again next time I'm working in the area.

    « Clean & Spacious »

    Located close to the city centre, it was a great find. Very comfortable rooms suitable for the family. My teenage daughter loved the free wifi, we enjoyed the quiet surroundings and lovely breakfast. The owners were very helpful and it was reasonably priced.

    « Very happy with this last minute booking »

    Had to visit Swan Hill at the last minute and didn't arrive on the train until 11pm - no issue for the proprietors and arrangements were made easily. Spotlessly clean, well located and friendly staff. Only issue was noisy guests on Saturday night - loud conversations on the veranda and high heels traipsing backwards and forwards on concrete, but I don't think there's much the owners can do about guests being inconsiderate. Great stay; won't bother looking for anywhere else next time I visit.

    « Close to the city and good value »

    Don't often stay in motels on my travels and prefer the more boutique style or B&Bs. However, as we were only staying one night, we were very pleasantly surprised at the standard of the accommodation and the value. Room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Would not hesitate to stay here again.

    « Great location,very clean. »

    Stayed at this motel quite a few times now over the years and I can safely say the last visit was as good as the first.The rooms are always exceptionly clean,the breakfast are spot on and the owners are very friendly.Walking distance to most things in town and free Wi-Fi.Very comfortable hotel.

    « Very comfortable, excellent service & great restaurant »

    Pleasantly surprised. After having stayed elsewhere in Swan Hill when on business trips, my wife booked this for us and I'm glad she did! Great value, very comfortable, excellent service and we took a chance on eating in the restaurant after reading some other reviews. The steaks were amazing and much better than I had recently at a highly priced and reviewed steak house in Mt Gambier! We ate here both nights. So if you want to enjoy a steak in Swan Hill do yourself a favour and eat here. Better still stay here as well. Highly recommended.
