The Lawson in Wagga is so beautifully restored. Greeted by friendly owners who offered us a terrific deal. Our room is spacious,clean & lovely balcony over looking river. Walking distance to town,or complementary bus to RSL club. Large bathroom fully equipped. Most important comfy bed. Recommended highly.

Clean room with all the facilities you could need, efficient staff, easy access to the wifi. Good bed. Convenient access to walk on the river levee and along to 'Wagga Beach'. A great way to start the day.

Highly recommended. Beautiful street appeal did not disappoint. Larger than average rooms, quality fit out, very comfortable bed with soft lovely linen. Large bathroom. Very clean. Great location with a lovely stroll to Waggga Beach along the river path behind the motel or a few minutes the other way to walk to shops and eateries.

This motel was a relaxing cool haven on a hot day in Wagga Wagga. Wifi worked well. Air conditioned ground floor unit was self contained with good options to self cater. We would stay here again next time we are in the area.
