Exceptional room/facility condition, comfortable beds and absolutely spotless, The location for the race track at Winton is perfect and the parking spaces are wide and deep so no threat from neighbouring cars from hitting your car when opening car doors. Also have off-road parking for trailers.

We stayed at Glider City Motel for 3 nights. The motel itself is immaculately presented. The hospitality was second to none. Michael and Mandy couldn't have been more hospitable. The courtesy bus was so convenient, dropping us off and picking us up from the the restaurant we ate at. The rooms were huge and so clean. You can really tell... More

Stayed one night. Pleasant good sized room with couch and table and chairs. Bed was reasonable but a bit hard for me. Blanket on bed was scratchy. Nice bathroom. Breakfast was served to the room and was good. Appreciated the toaster in room to have fresh toast. There was also a microwave so you could heat something up for dinner... More

Always good, clean comfortable rooms. Car parking at your door. Outdoor pool with tables and chairs to help you soak up the beautiful country fresh air. Staff are friendly and helpful. They even offer a courtesy bus to the local pub. What more could you need?

Very friendly, kind man that owns the motel. Great easy to use amenities. Although us being a bit silly and not reading the instructions had to call the... More

Stayed here four years ago and our return visit was just as good. Glider City Motel has knowledgable and friendly hosts, clean and comfortable rooms and is close to town. This is the place to stay in Benalla.

I know I've reviewed this place before, but I always stay here for a reason: The Service ! Mike & Mandy, are simply the best hosts, always with a good word of advice about where to eat, or a tip about a new attraction.

I've been waiting to find a spot like this for sometime. This location is ideal as it is just off the highway in a town that has everything you need but in a quite location. Excellent value. I'll be back.

On the edge of town but so worth the stay. Michael is such a good host, helpful and on the ball. Rooms are very comfortable and the motel quiet and so well maintained.
