On a recent trip from Adelaide to Melbourne my husband and I decided to stay in Tailem Bend and found this hotel on Trip Advisor. We didn't expect much from the outside appearance, however we were very pleasantly surprised. We were welcomed warmly, given suggestions for dinner and chatted about our trip. We chose a deluxe queen room which had...

A little discouraged after reading reviews. Yes property is clean and suitable for a quick 'in transit' stop over. Regrettably night we stayed other guests were very noisy. Not a major issue except be aware that room soundproofing is not this properties best point - walls are thin. Large vehicle road noise is quiet easily heard at all times,

Great stay , Comfortable bed with soft clean sheets we slept like logs. Unit very clean , shower / bathroom spotless . The a/c quiet . Staff pleasant and helpful. Easy to find although on highway , units are tucked at the back so no noise from the road . Would stay again . A+

Booked this hotel for one night after reading other reviews and it certainly lived up to our expectations. The room was modern, clean and we were lucky enough to be upgraded as an added bonus. The breakfast pack consisting of cereal, juice, milk and bread for toast and toppings was good value for an extra $9 per person. Very friendly...

From the outside this looks like a 1950's motel. Inside was a pleasant surprise. First and foremost it was sparklingly clean. The motel had been tastefully renovated with modern cabinets and new furnishings. The other lovely little touches which I liked were as follows: Mugs supplied instead of tiny cups Complimentary fresh milk and biscuits A toaster, plates, bowls and...

Thank you so much to Stacey and the rest of the team at River Bend. Trying to navigate flooding in SA and arriving late we were welcomed with a comfortable, clean, quiet, warm room. Thank you for the hospitality. We enjoyed our very brief stay.

This looks like a typical small, old style country motel from the outside, but it is a pleasant surprise inside - modern and comfortable, nice beds. We were able to arrange our own breakfasts and there was a table to sit at. Only downside - the bathroom fan was powerful and came on whenever the light was turned on. Normally...

Only stayed one night. En route to Ballarat. The room was immaculately clean & comfortable. Recently renovated. Breakfast (continental) was more than adequate and a reasonable price. Would stay there again and would recommend to others.
