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...

This is our favourite place to stay when we visit Narrandera. The rooms are comfy. There is a great lounge area. Lovely old style building. Breakfast included (continental style). Attentive hosts. Just love it

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.

Our hosts were fabulous and made us feel very welcome. Although the hotel is over 50 years old, it was extremely well maintained. When we checked out and left a couple of our chargers in the room, Ross even went through the trouble to post them to us at no extra cost! I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again

Second time staying at this establishment and it still maintains an excellent standard. Carries our cases in and up to our rooms, ensures all our needs our met and cleans the bugs off the windscreen! Lovely breakfast and great coffee. Certainly put this place on your list to stay at.

I was last here a couple of years ago when Murray was running the place. His brother has taken over and it was most pleasing to see standards are being maintained. They have put new carets in since my last stay but the place still has that 'fresh paint aroma' that I remembered. We had a good nights quiet rest...
