The breakfast menu is good and reasonably priced, What was exceptionally great was the amount of tourist information available in the room. The owners Julie and Peter go to a lot of trouble to help visitors to the area to get an overview of local attractions,...

The owners were incredibly lovely and helpful! We were in town for a wedding and it was an excellent and cheap choice for accomodation. We would definitely stay here again if we came back to Traralgon.

Well located close to the centre of town, this hotel is clean and comfortable despite being outdated. However, if you want a quiet nights sleep it is not quite suitable. Traralgon is a very busy town, larger than we expected.

I stayed here a few months ago a few times for work, and can not fault the place. Rooms were clean and well presented. But the staff here were fantastic, accommodated my every request, will definitely stay here again when passing through for work.

We were attending a wedding in Traralgon and stayed at the City Gardens Motel. There was a group of us from the wedding and we all found it comfortable. A clean, quite, and reasonably priced Motel. Breakfasts great, friendly staff. A good stop over on way to Melbourne.
