I stayed here for a weekend in February and was extremely impressed. I was greeted by Caroline who was warm and knowledgable about the area. I had booked a standard room and found it to be impeccably clean from top to bottom. Upon my request, I was shown around the recently renovated rooms the next morning and will definitely be... More

Stayed 3 nights and loved it. Just looks like your standard motel from the roadside (nothing wrong with that of coarse but you wouldn't expect the dècor you get in the room) I booked one of the newly refurbished rooms and it did not disappoint. Clean, tidy, everything functioning, wi-fi, SMART tv, great breakfast delivered at requested time, friendly staff... More

This place is an oasis, from the outside it looks your typical 60s country motor in. Inside the rooms they are well renovated. Exceptionally clean and contemporary in style. Incredibly well priced and includes free WIFI. Owners could not be more efficient and helpful

Hi Chelsea, Thanks for your positive comments. The room you booked was a standard room and although not refurbished, they are clean, tidy and well maintained. We do however have newly refurbished Deluxe Queen 4 star rooms with quality fittings throughout. These rooms feature internet connected 50inch smart TV,s and absolutely stunning bathrooms with frameless shower screens. Perhaps you could... More

Gary, the owner was extremely cooperative by ensuring we had a smooth check-in although we arrived quite late at night. He was waiting for us at the reception beyond the deadline of 9pm. Of course, we did inform him in advance of our approximate time of arrival. Just could not order breakfast for the next morning as the orders need... More

Jim W A Very Enjoyable Comfortable Stay. Tower Motor Inn ticks all the right boxes. From beautifully appointed remodelled rooms. A lovely shared alfresco area. Rooms were spotless, comfortable. The hosts Gary and Caroline are very welcoming and helpful. Highly recommended for anyone staying in or passing through Mount Gambier.

Golden Chain Motor Inn was better than we were expecting from an "in transit" motel. The newly remodeled rooms have made it a diamond amongst motels. Gary and his reception staff are very welcoming and friendly. Gary worked on the remodeling and he took the time and care to do an excellent job. Our room and facilities were very clean... More

The best motel we had stayed in so far. All items appeared new. Excellent bed. Wifi worked well as did the a/c. Host gave full and frank information about the area. Go and see the blue lake. Make time. Pity only had time to stay one night.
