Recent guest reviews

Came to Swan Hill for work so was just looking for a single nights accomodation. The Great Western was it. Check in was easy and everything was ready and waiting for me. The room had been recently refurbished so was clean and modern with a huge bathroom. Great night sleep on lovely linen (I do have a nice linen 'thing'!). Lovely breakfast in the morning - try the home made musli - it was special...and the 'real coffee' is included in the price - not extra as some places charge. There is a small pool which I didn't use. The Hotel is located walking distance to the main shopping centre and some great restaurants. Great service. Would return and therefore I would recommend.

The room is comfortable and the motel very quiet. Pleasant place to stay. Friendly staff at check in. Haven’t tried the restaurant. The wifi is disappointing. There is Wi-Fi extenders but the speed is still terrible. Something that could be looked into to make this a perfect place to stay. I have stayed in this room a few times and last time I was here the air conditioner was noisy but I am pleased to see some money was obviously spend and the air conditioning is quiet as a mouse. Car parking is great with allocated spaces. While the spa is nice the bathroom could possibly do with an update which I know you are doing in other rooms. I would be more than happy with no spa and a bigger shower with better water pressure. I read some other reviews with this too but some stating that the pressure was great so I am not sure which rooms have the good water pressure but this is not one of them. Would definitely be back though. But just would be nice to have the little creature comforts ironed out like the Wi-Fi and the water pressure.

Very clean and comfortable room. Decor was modern and bathroom had been renovated recently. Very reasonable rates. Motel had a restaurant attached and offered room service. Unfortunately there were late arrivals who were clattering around in the room above us. If noise bothers you ask for a 1st floor room. Otherwise very quiet at night , it's off the main hwy so no road noise. Good for overnight stops.

Stayed a few times now and very comfortable accommodation which has just been refurbished. Breakfast was good but would be interested to hear what dinner is like before trying, appears to have a good selection of wines

Stayed one night. Room was spacious and clean. My room had a spa bath which was also clean. Check in was efficient and courteous. There is a restaurant on site which is convenient. Rooms are older style but have been refurbished.

Travelling through Swan Hill on business I'd pre-paid so check-in was an absolute breeze; fast, friendly and easy. I was given an upstairs room (#10) and was pleasantly surprised that it had a HUGE spa bath, which was welcome after putting in so many kilometers driving for a few days. The room was spotlessly clean and spacious with a comfortable bed, a couple of arm chairs and a table and chairs. There were the usual coffee and tea amenities on hand, and whilst there is on-site dining I wound up having dinner elsewhere. The only downside was that the door rattled a bit given it was a windy night but resting my suitcase against it soon took care of that. Super comfortable, quiet and nicely located I'd definitely stay again. The pool would be a real plus in the warmer months.

There are more positives than negatives with the Burke & Wills. Good shower pressure and lots of natural light in the bathroom. We liked the beds and the very generous room service breakfast. Heaps of very tasty bacon. The room was also very quiet as the motel is on the central part of Campbell Street, not the main traffic route. It is also walking distance to quite a few places to eat. There was definitely room for improvement with the room heater. It is definitely time to replace the old mission brown heating unit with a modern split system. It will probably save the owners money and would almost certainly be able to blow hot air into the room. The receptionist made a great fuss to present us with the free wi fi password but was later dismissive when we pointed out that it was virtually impossible to connect to it. Apparently Telstra is the problem. Clearly nothing to do with a lack of sufficient routers through the property. I would like to see glasses in the room too, Drinking beer from a small coffee cup just doesn’t seem right. Overall we would stay again but maybe not when it is really cold outside.

Stayed in a $90 motel when here last couldn't sleep on the hard bed. Payed $139 thinking I would be getting a comfortable sleep, guess what, 3 am no sleep bed hard as nails . Room passable but if can't sleep, what is the point. Do they have hard beds on sale in this town?

The motel staff were very friendly from check-in to check out. The family room was a good size with 2 bedrooms, and the beds were comfortable. The bathroom appeared to have been recently renovated and was a good size. Motel was close to the centre of town and lovely and quiet. Would stay again and highly recommend.

Very nice rooms, clean and comfortable. Pricing is very reasonable Staff are very nice and helpful. The restaurant is very nice, great food, well priced and a really cosy place. Will be back here for every trip to Swan Hill for sure.
