Beautifully renovated old world hotel in immaculate condition with a lovely guest lounge, comfortable rooms and EXCELLENT service. A lovely breakfast is included in the rate. The owner operator will even clean your cars windscreen which I must admit is a FIRST for any hotel/motel I have ever stayed in. Truly lovely people here.

Always apprehensive about boutique accommodation, this repurposed hotel provides a very comfortable, clean and relaxing place to stay in the centre of town close to the club. When the restaurant is reopened this will be the must stay venue in Narrandera

The room is comfortable and the bathroom clean. The lounge is great to relax in. The breakfast is a great continental offering. The hotel is well located in the middle of the town. It was easy to walk to everywhere we wanted to.

We arrived after reading such great reviews & we weren't disappointed one bit. The owner was so accomodating. We had a small child and would have put us in a bigger room but our room was more than big enough for the 3 of us for the night. He offered to carry bags upstairs also. We received a complimentary continental...

The initial greeting was warm and helpful. The room was spacious (I requested a twin room and it had a queen and two single beds), clean, big fluffy towels.... Only thing missing were comfortable chairs to relax in. There was a guest lounge but we prefer our privacy so coped with two dining chairs. Very close to a Coles and...

We had a wonderful stop over in Narrandera. The hospitality was outstanding, the room spotless and the fresh fruit at breakfast a highlight. The air con handles the 40 degree day well - which we were thankful for. To top it off, the staff surprised us by cleaning our windscreen in preparation for the day's drive. True hospitality!

Always a bit worrying when you blindly book a property but as soon as we walked into The New Criterion Hotel we knew we'd made an excellent choice. Proprietor is such a gentleman. Helpful and welcoming. It is nice to see new life breathed into old buildings and this is one that has been revived with love and attention. We...

A very comfortable room awaited me when I arrived late at night driving to Adelaide. The hotel is steeped in history, and its tall ceilings, and the character of its rooms and facade separate the New Criterion - pleasantly - from bland, generic chains. What was really amazing though was the service. I was warmly welcomed, helped to my room...

A regular place to stay for me. Amazing hospitality from the owners - you feel a great genuine welcome. Nice historical building and rooms comfortable and refurbished. Air con really works! Nice morning continental brekkie with real fresh coffee. Thanks for all the great stays.
