Very cosy and comfortable, big clean bed and warm room with decent bathroom in town with everything within walking distance. Very good staff who could answer every question. Easy to book, pay and stay. We'd stay again.

This is not a resort, therefore rooms are small but are clean, comfortable, well presented and fit for purpose as a base from which you can rest and prepare for a days outing. It is conveniently located in the city centre, off the main highway, therefore suitable for walking, cycling or driving excursions. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. I... More

Grim is the word my wife & I eventually came up with for this outdated old motel from the 70's! Tiny rooms, really bad furnishings, bathroom in desperate need of renovation, awful dirty carpet & vertical blinds that kept nothing out including light! The car parking was way too tight & the noise from people running up & down the... More

I Don't understand your bad review. I Live on premises and I never have an issue with noise of people running up and down stairs. Lights are switched off at 10pm every night so I don't understand how light can come through the vertical blinds. As for the wifi it doesn't drop out. As for slamming doors this happens at... More

I only stayed here one night but found it clean, with comfortable bedding, cosy and warm with efficient air conditioning. Yes, the bathroom was outdated, I wasn't expecting it to be a 5* room, but the towels were soft, and everything was functional and the shower had great pressure. Ticked the boxes for a very cheap stay in Mt Gambier.

We travelled The Great Ocean Road moving on every night, this was the worst hotel/motel we stayed in. The rooms are small and ours smelt of urine, althought the sheets were clean. We should have asked to change rooms but we had moved in our luggage when we noticed the smell and it was only for one night. Whould not... More

My partner and I stayed for 2 nights and found the motel good. The service from the staff was excellent and they were very helpful. The room and bathroom was small and appliances very basic but it had all that we needed. If you're not looking for luxury then this is an affordable place to stay.

My friend recommended me to stay here as it was well located and best price around. And he know i don't like paying high prices for a room. However, reading the views I was a bit unsure so I went there and asked to see a room. It was completely fine, I was confused. Anyway I booked in as I... More

Come to Mt Gambier regularly and stay at another motel but due to their price increases I thought I would give this motel a try. It was very clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. We had free wifi which is nice. The room was very comfortable and had everything we required. Breakfasts are beautiful as we like... More

Some people require more than friendly staff to give a motel a good review! Dirty coffee cups, a filthy remote control, and a bathroom that needs a major upgrade are all major factors affecting my review. Also a good nights sleep is another vital point for me & this was bad due to the closeness of my room to the... More
