We booked our room directly after finding it in a trip advisor search. Cooked breakfast was included and the tariff was reasonable. Only stayed for one night but we found the bed uncomfortable and hard. The rest of the room was OK. Not our favourite accommodation on this trip but breakfast was great.

We were a group of four and booked two rooms that were very economically priced. The rooms were clean and the beds very comfortable. It is an older hotel that has been tastefully renovated and is close to the city. The managers are friendly and accommodating. We would definitely stay there again, thank you!!

We had a good night's sleep at the Tower Motor Inn. The bed was very comfortable. The Inn is located on the Jubilee Highway, but we did not hear noise. Although this is a motor inn or motel by U.S. standards, the room was really modernized. The bathroom was very updated with a nice shower, upgraded sink and counter and... More

This is relatively inexpensive and clean place not far from the town centre in Mount Gambier (would still need a car to get into town though). The room was very well furnished and spacious and included a mini fridge and spacious bathroom. Wifi was also very effective too. The only downside was being on the highway meant that it was...

Well appointed, clean and modern. Car parked out the front of your room. Nice big wall mounted TV, clean bathroom.

Positives: Nice room. Good location. Cleanliness. Negatives: The manager wasn't pleasant or helpful at all. Breakfast was supposed to be included in the price of the room, however, we didn't receive any. At night the traffic noise from the main road was really loud.

One night stay in deluxe queen ($135). Could not fault the room - very clean and tastefully furbished. Comfortable bed and could not hear neighbours. Coffee plunger with sachets of ground coffee a nice touch. Friendly reception, too. One small thing - shower cap would have been handy.
