The William Farrer Hotel is a basic hotel located at the heart of Wagga Wagga town, at the corner of Edward & Peter Streets. It is within short walking distance of the railway station and Fearnes Coach terminal just across the road.
The rooms at this hotel are basic and without TV, suitable with those on a budget as it cost about $60 australian dollars per night. There is a pub downstairs, so do expect some noise in the evening but it is bearable.
I have never stayed in more pleasing accomodations! Everything about Little Bunda Cottages is absolutely perfect! From the moment we walked in the door I knew this stay would be special.
Firstly...it is beautifully designed...an absolute delight to the senses. Made with mud bricks (from the earth dug out to lay the foundations) and local timbers, it blends perfectly with the landscape. The attention to detail is amazing...as carefully thought out and put together as any home you could imagine! It's as if Jen and Greg (owners), built themselves a holiday home and then decided to share it with others!
It is fully self-contained...and I mean fully! No expense has been spared and no requirement left unanswered! The kitchen is a dream! I love to cook, and I felt so comfortable and at ease in this kitchen...there was nothing that I needed that wasn't there, and it was all of such good quality! There are even potted herbs at the kitchen door!! And the mass plantings of lavender under the kitchen windows smelled heavenly in the evening.
The bathroom was lovely, simple, bright , spotless and equipped with nice toiletries. The home made rose and rosemary bath salts were the best! The bedrooms were spacious and inviting...the bed in the main bedroom as comfortable as my own. The central heating kept us warm on the cold wagga mornings.
The view from the cottage is wonderful...to sit outside in the evening with a glass of wine was such a pleasure! The cottage is surrounded by working farms...so the peace and quiet is amazing!
As to the host, Jen...she was simply brilliant! She went out of her way to make things special. My kids really appreciated the bag of age appropriate toys she had brought up for their use, and we really appreciated her kindness.
I really can not commend this place highly enough...anyone needing a reason to visit Wagga Wagga will find it at Little Bunda Cottages!
The Burringa Motel is located in the suburb of Kooringal in Wagga. While it's not located in the CBD, Kooringal is not far from the centre of Wagga, and the short drive into the CBD is well worth it. Burringa Motel is located on Plumpton Road which is very quiet. The price here is amazing. We paid $90 for a room with a queen and single sized bed. The room also had a fully self contained kitchen.
The Burringa Motel is loacted on 5 acres with plenty of room to walk around the grounds. A beautifully maintained pool is also available (although we didn't use it on this trip!). This motel is outrageously well priced for such a beautiful motel.
Camping is always fun...along the Murrumbidgee River you will find plenty of places to camp as long as you can handle real camping with no 'facilities'. You can find plenty of small beaches and great areas to set up your tent.
As long as you don't go through any gates or pass signs saying otherwise you should be safe to camp most places long the river.
The Palm & Pawn is a great place to stay with a family in the warmer months. They have a pub, beach volleyball, swimming pool, tennis court, BBQ area etc. It's a great place for a party too!!!
The rooms are fairly basic but are spaceous and tidy.

The William Farrer is typical pub style lodgins, with private rooms upstairs from the bar. It is very clean and comfy, however, with free tea and coffe in your room and a television lounge for all guests. We stayed in a twin with shared bathroom facilities that were very clean, although en suite rooms are also available. Don't be put off by it being above a bar, it's an older, friendly crowd and we had no problems with noise or security. Best of all, our room was only AU$44 a night!
There are PLENTY of different places to stay in Wagga...you can choose between Hotels, Motels, Caravan Parks, Bed & Breakfasts etc...
If you want a recommendation on where to stay in Wagga you could email me...or visit the Visitor Information Centre were they have lists of accommodation. There is also a computerised accommodation list for after hours at the Visitor Information Centre. Or you can check out the list on the http://www.discoverwagga.com.au web site.
I would recommend that you book your accommodation in advance if you plan to stay either Friday or Saturday night or during holiday periods. Accommodation in Wagga is sometimes hard to come by on weekends...especially if there is something big happening in town...
