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.

This place has rooms to suit all pockets. Half the rooms have been refurbished to a high standard and cost more. The remainder are pretty old fashioned but cheaper. So take your choice. We stayed in the former. Very nicely furnished and appointed and amazingly clean. I need their cleaner at my house!! Only downside is that the room was... More

We chose a superior queen room and it is just like the pictures. Very clean and fresh. Air con and free wifi. Great flat screen tv with basic channels. Great standard for a motel. We joined the golden chain club to get a discount so we are even happier with what we got. Pub down the road is open for... More

I stayed there one night while traveling between Adelaide and Melbourne. I found the motel to be well appointed, with great self-sufficient rooms and great facilities. The design of the room is the shining star there, with a cute kitchenette and a sharp, brand new bathroom. The motel is well-located if you have a car and can drive to the... More
