I agree with other reviews that the hotel needs updating especially the bathroom however my room including the bathroom was very spacious & comfortable- I had two small lounges, large bed,separate bath & shower & dining table. It was clean & the linen seems to be all new/modern. They also provided a good amount of toiletries including shampoo & conditioner.... More

Whoa- this was a flash back in time to the 1960s! I'm all about retro but this was ridiculous- really time for an update. Definitely would not stay here again- it was relatively clean but that's about all I could say for it. The woman at the front desk was lovely and helpful but nothing could overcome the pink plastic... More

I have stayed at this hotel/motel a few times over the years and I think they have had a change of management recently. Last time I stayed there an amount of $50.00 was taken from my account - without my permission because they told me there was water damage and staining on the carpet. I disputed this with the 'general... More

If you believe it is unfair for a property to charge a guest $50 for cleaning/repair costs when they have: 1) Booked a room as a corporate guest being paid for by their employer 2) Invite 3 other people over for a party in the spa 3) Have a spa bath, overfill the tub and splash so much water around...

This is an old motel that needs a lot of refurbishment. It's very clean... and very depressive. Looks like a US movie in the sixties, with the same period furniture. The pool and jacuzzi are very old and you don't feel like dipping a toe in any of them. Don't even consider having dinner here, except if you're on Prozac.... More

If you want to be accommodate with with Choice Hôtels brand standard then choose this hôtel. Sometimes in Australia, stars on the front does not mean anything and very often you pay high and you do not get in return what you paid for.... But frankly talking this hotel is a very good value for one night. Large room Clean... More

The motel, though a tad dated, is very spacious and clean. Importantly, the beds smelled and looked clean and was comfy to sleep in. BUT sadly what kept us awake from time to time were those huge container/transportation trucks that drove past through the night on the main road just outside the motel. Not the motel's fault though, but probably... More

Whilst the bed's were comfortable and fine and the rooms were certainly clean and very large, the motel is very out-dated and we felt that the price we paid would have seen a better quality room. The wifi password they gave us didn't work and we had to return to front desk to get another. This didn't work either, so... More

Stopped here for the night on our way back to Adelaide from Melbourne. A little outdated but good size rooms, very clean, comfortable bed, and unbelievable water pressure in the shower, best ever. Mount Gambier has the best Quality tap water too! Close enough to get around to see all the sights as well. Great little indoor pool, spa and... More
