Naturally we have mobiles so we dialled the number indicated andnthe phone rang somewhere in the building. He answered and came to give us a key...

Griffith was booked out so we stayed at Leeton. We chose the Historic Hydro Motor Inn as we have tired of the standard style motel over the years. The Hydro has a character of it's own, having been built in 1919 as accommodation for the management staff of the Murrumbidgee Irrigation scheme. The charm of yesteryear is still there and...

Great place. Friendly, good food and beer and the historic building adds a nice touch. All at a good price. I loved the bed too - was very comfortable and warm. Would recommend staying here, it has a wonderful charm about it. I will probably be back one day!

A cold, wet miserable drive was quickly forgotten when I walked into the Hydro in Leeton. This hotel is worth repeat visits. It is absolutely sensational. I will always remember this place. Support this place, help keep a little history. You need not go elsewhere, bed, bar, dinner and breakfast.

I didn't stay here, but attended a great function in one of the private rooms. I found the venue well maintained and appointed appropriately for the era. The finger food catering for our function was very good and the drinks selection varied. The catering staff were attentive, friendly and well presented. They managed the sometimes-rowdy(!) guests with aplomb. i'd recommend...

This lovely hotel is within walking distance from the centre of town and is just a great place to stay. It has a heap of history and has been modified to provide en-suite bathrooms. The place was being slowly renovated and will look great once these have been finished. There is no lift to get you to the top floor...
