I'd love to give 4 but unfortunately traffic noise prevents me. That said, the owners have advised me they are aware of the problem and are working towards a solution. The room I stayed in was as good as a 4 star hotel room with a very comfy bed. The motel is kept beautifully clean and tidy and staff are... More

We were upgraded to a deluxe room which had been beautifully refurbished and looked alot like the photos on the website (2 night stay). Well designed, well appointed, well lit (what a bonus), very clean, and very comfortable. Not a huge room but had been refurbished very effectively and there was room for a small table and two chairs. No... More

We were pleased to hear your positive comments for our un-refurbished room however we would like to invite you to stay in our latest refurbished Deluxe Queen suites offering the latest... More

We stayed for just one night as we were on a road trip. The room was basic but we were very glad to have a small lounge to sit on. I don't think the room had been refurbished as others had said. Our welcome was OK but we were disappointed with suggestions for dinner. He didn't seem to want to... More

Owners friendly and helpful. Beautifully renovated. Breakfast was hot and delicious, served to our room. Very quiet. Loved the shower head and plenty of hot water. Very large smart TV and bed was comfy. Definitely recommend.

Stayed at the Superior Queen suite for 1 night on 22 August 2014. The room was spacious, spotlessly clean with a comfy bed. Had a microwave & dinnerware provided in the the small kitchen area in the room which was very convenient. The motel is located just off Jubilee Highway but was surprisingly quite. Modern interiors & a very comfortable... More

Although a bit out of the way, the accommodation delivers in every other way. We booked on line and had follow up emails before and after our one night stay and made us feel valued customers. The room was large, comfortable and clean. The bathroom was dated and didn't have a fan but was spotless. Nice friendly hospitality capped off... More

I stayed one night at the Tower Motor Inn in early July. Even though it was school holidays Mt. Gambier is not favoured as a tourist destination in the depths of winter. The rooms looked pretty drab from the outside, however, inside my room was cosy and comfortable. It had a double and a single, TV with DVD player, and... More
