Basic but clean, quiet and hits the target market. Its on a good location on the main road and is near plenty of food choices and... More

Good manager who helped with some questions I had about the area. I had a room at the far end of the hotel. Cable TV etc, fridge, usual facilities, - all fine with... More

We (hubby and 2 kids) were driving from northern SA to Melbourne, and having done this trip quite a few times over the years we decided to stop at Horsham on the way. We knew we were going to arrive after office hours for most places, and also knew the Smerdon had made arrangements to cater for late arrivals for... More

Friends and I booked the Smerdon Lodge as a place to sleep on a road trip to Adelaide from Melbourne. The location is good and the rooms are clean, functional and have all the amenities you need. Staff were friendly and happy for us to arrive late. The rooms are slightly dated for the price, but the bed is comfy... More

Friendly helpful staff. Clean comfortable room at a fair price. Pet and motorcycle friendly. Our room was quiet, being a good distance from the entrance and highway. Short walk to a hotel for dinner in a bistro packed with local people on Saturday night celebrating their football game.
