Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed overnight at the motel on the way back to Melbourne from Canberra. The accommodation ticked all the boxes , apart from the bed being a bit hard. The breakfast offering was excellent and food was hot when it arrived to the room. A good place to stay

The whole experience was disappointing. Started with over the phone check-in. No physical attendance at the hotel at all during the stay. Got to tge room. This was classed as a room with kitchenette. 2 teaspoons were all that was supplied for eating Two small bread plates and cereal bowls, 2 cups and saucers. I went to the pool and it had not been cleaned. The gardens were unkempt. Lawns not mowed. Very disappointing stay.

Booked this Motel for a 2-day golf event in Benalla with my wife. Easy to get to and find just off the main street on the way out of Benalla. PRO'S: Easy access with roomy parking facilities Clean and tidy room with new facilities, bathroom and shower were good. Had a nice comfortable couch. Bed was reasonably new and comfortable, with good pillows. New air conditioner that operated well. Excellent Wi-Fi, very fast, what a shame the TV was a relic! Easy, quick access to the Main Street and shopping area in Benalla CON'S: Advertised as having Foxtel channels but didn't. contacted the manager who just said, "we don't have Foxtel anymore!" Small, Old television that couldn't accommodate "casting" from my Foxtel phone app. (This and many other Motels need to modernize their TV sets to Smart TVS so guests can use streaming APPS.) Never saw the Manager or anybody else that worked there for the whole 2 days, although the room was serviced well each day. Rooms faced the street and traffic, especially truck noise, was very loud, at times, especially at night. Overall: Quite a good motel for the price. Would stay there again.

Booked on the internet, received confirmation of our booking, arrived very soon after (just after 4), office was shut so we rang the number, only spoken to over the phone & then wanted $160 a night instead of the $98 we had confirmed (& had proof of) - went elsewhere in the end

Excellent for my needs. The accommodation was warm and comfortable and the facilities first class. Given that I was on Benalla Airport for the week, it suited me perfectly and was close enough to coffee, shops and restaurants to be quite convenient.

Great sized room, comfortable bed, nice clean bathroom and great shower. A bonus was the long bench where we could lay out our things (some motels don’t have enough room for belongings but this isn’t an issue here). Very enjoyable one night stay, we’ll be back!

I stayed for two nights at Glider City recently. Typcially I visit this motel each year at this tme. This used to be the best in Benalla. The flatscreen TV had a large crack in it and the colours were distorted. The electric blanket did not operate, truck noise was quite bad from the road on the side and the room clean after day 1 must have been all of 5 mins as not much had been attended to. There were complaints from others in our group that the hot water was running out so I made a point of getting in early if one wanted a hot shower There is quite a detioration from what it used to be.

Clean, spacious room. Efficient friendly reception. Quiet location and comfortable night sleep. Situated about 2km from centre of town on northern edge of Benalla, it's a good spot to base yourself if you are doing the Northeast Victoria Silo Trail. As well as the silo and water tank art work, Benalla is full of murals on the sides of buildings spread throughout the town. Also worth a look is the Gaudi like park adjacent to the river. The Royal Hotel offers good value for a pub dinner.

Our friends meet at the glider each year for new year. We love the Glider. There is so much to do in the area. This year with covid, we had BBQs and sat by the pool. The rooms are great. We will be back, Sorry to see the old owner go, but the new owners are very nice.
