We ended up at this hotel as there was a mix up with our booking though expedia and the booking agency re-booked us there first before they called us, so we had no choice as we had already paid. It was not our first choice to stay at this motel as there had been mixed reviews. The lady on reception...

Stayed here for a night before collecting our houseboat and can not speak highly enough of our experience. Room was prefect for what we needed, clean and comfortable. Our host could not do enough for us. She provided advice on any questions we had, helped with printing some documents I needed and called the morning of checkout to advise one...

Welcome greet was average. Some training should fix that. Room was dated for the price. Echuca is in a bubble because it is so close to Melbourne, people come up overnight or weekend stay so accommodations are always full. If it was anywhere else it is a $120 per night room. The best part was their excellent shower. Water pressure...

This I believe is the best Motel in Echuca. Room was clean and tidy. Serviced every day. Staff are very good and friendly and make you feel right at home. We come every year and the manager, Wendy remembers us and why we come at the same time every year.

We came up from Melbourne for the night and found the Motel to be quite clean, comfortable and a great spa to relax in after a wonder of the streets.We didn't know at the time but there was a weekend of steam paddle boats and a steam train just to add to the atmosphere. The staff were very helpful and...

After ten days of holidays in fabulous locations with family and friends, the trip home can sometimes create a bit of a disappointment. En route to South Australia from NSW, we decided not to book a motel on our last night, but take pot luck. Into the Paddlewheel Motel in Echuca we drove tired after a long journey. We were...

Very conveniently positioned for an overnight stop. Near to shops and cafes means you don't have to get back into the car for dinner. The motel is fairly old but clean and comfortable. Great price. The host was friendly and helpful. She readily provided us with extra utensils.

Welcoming and friendly hosts, a clean and comfortable room and quier. We would recommend to friends. A short drive to the main shopping centre and the Echuca Port - which is why we visited Echuca. A pleasant stay overnight.
