Thanks for your very good review , we're glad you were happy with our accommodation. I'm sorry Mount Gambier didn't live up to your expectations, everyone has their own opinion. I myself think Mount Gambier is a lovely little city with many iconic attractions including the famous Blue Lake. Good to see you had a good meal at the RSL,... More

Excellent place to stay. We had one night here en route to geelong from victor harbor. We had the spa room, lots of room to spread out with kitchenette, dining table, huge kingsize bed, very generous spa as well as stand alone shower. Highly recommended.

We stayed in the Arkana Motor Inn for one night on our way to Melbourne via the Great Ocean Road. The stay was exactly what we expected. The room was large enough, clean and provided basic equipment. Supermarket and restaurants are not far from the motel

A very nice motor inn. The bathroom area is nicely set in one side of the room with the basin separate to the toilet and shower. A nice indoor pool completes the amenities nicely. We had a second floor room and next time I will try for a bottom floor as it makes getting my families gear to the car... More

Travelled to Mount Gambier for a special Speedway meeting and was staying for one night. I chose Arkana based on reviews and was not disappointed. We were pleasantly greeted by Josh, who was very helpful and polite! Our room contained a queen and single bed, it was very spacious and very clean. The split system air conditioner was silent but...

This is the second time I have stayed at the ARKANA MOTOR INN after my first enjoyable experience 3 years ago and I was not disappointed! This time we stayed in the self-contained rear apartment. The kitchens are brand new complete with modern stove, with a good supply of pots and pans, electric frypan, toaster, microwave, dishwasher, etc. There is... More

We drove from Adelaide to Mt. Gambier and put up 2 nights' stay in this motel. We booked a Back Terrace Apartment facing the indoor heated pool & Spa. We were happy with the facilities provided and the comfort of the apartment. Better still is the close proximity of this motel to all the other places of interest to visit.... More

Friendly service, comfortable room and great shower. Was going to watch a DVD I'd purchased that day, but there was a $10 charge for a DVD player, so I used the free wi-fi and watched Foxtel instead. Would be happy to come here again.
