I travel with work and stay at quite a few Motels throughout the state, the Arkana is one of the better motels I have come across and have no hesitation in staying there again whilst in town. Reception personal are friendly and quite welcoming, the prices are very reasonable which i then rate them as being excellent for the cost,... More

We enjoyed 4 nights at Arkana Motor Inn. The room was clean and roomy. We slept 4 comfortably at a very good price. The staff were friendly and helpful and one room attendant went out of her way to find a thin pillow for my daughter. The kids loved the pool. It was heated and indoor which helped during the...

Each year we venture across the boarder to Mt Gambier for the annual Eisteddfod and stay at Arkana Motor Inn. It's a home away from home for us. The owners are friendly and most accommodating of our needs. The bathrooms are always spotless, the kitchens well equipped and also very clean and the bedrooms spacious with fabulously comfortable beds. We... More

We drove into my gambier around 5:30pm from adelaide. After viewing the family room/ suites for two other local places I almost felt like going home. After viewing the arkana I was more than happy to pay $145. Room lovely and very clean, plenty of room for 2 adults & children. Nothing broken. The heater worked beautifully to keep the... More

I have stayed here a number of times for business and the service , cleanliness etc are excellent. On my current stay I asked to move rooms to an apartment room for my second night but forgot to pack my things up before I left my room in the morning. The staff packed all of my things and moved them... More

We just spent two nights at the Arkana, it was fantastic! Our room was spacious, clean, well decorated, and comfortable. The armchair was a delight. Service was friendly and efficient. We will be staying there next time we are in south east and telling family, friends and others about it.

I recommend this place to anyone who is staying in Mount Gambier. The service is phenomenal and really made our stay - nothing is too much trouble for the staff here, they are truly above and beyond the call of duty. The rooms are spotlessly clean and well appointed. I couldn't get a go in the lounge chair - it... More

The rooms have been updated and have a modern decor. The addition of a comfortable armchair was a great idea and it was greatly appreciated. The breakfast was served on time and tasted great. Can't find fault with anything.
