    Arrived after 8pm in the evening, during a total power outage in Sale!! The kitchen still managed to provide a beautiful hot cooked dinner for four of us. Service that went above and beyond. Thank you all at the Criterion.

    Spotlessly clean. Delightful and efficient staff. Welcoming pub bar and restaurant—delicious food ( the only complaint: portions were too large!)

    Loved the old world charm of the building, and the facilities were modern and clean. They also have a great bistro downstairs, all up a lovely stay.

    Comfortable Motel Accommodation with a Bar and a Quality Restaurant

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We stayed in Sale at The Criterion rather than staying another night in Melbourne on drive up coast to Sydney. We didn’t end up trying the restaurant so can’t comment on that but it was an exceptionally comfortable room with King bed at a modest price. Tiny bathroom but it didn’t matter. Would definitely recommend.
