Under new management and doing a great job. Craig was very pleasant and accommodating. Room was clean with new linen. Stay was very good value, including a great cooked breakfast. If/when in the area again would definitely stay again.

Stayed here btn xmas and new year, to break up a long drive from Phillip Island back to Adelaide, with 2 dogs. So good to get dog friendly accomodation where the dogs are allowed inside, and noticed in the room notes that kennels are available if you want the dog to sleep out. Small fridge, but we had an esky,... More

My partner, daughter and I took a last minute trip down to Melbourne over the weekend and after driving for a few too many hours, we decided to see if there was a motel room available. It was 10:30pm and it didn't look open, but they have a night bell, so I rang it, only to be greeted on the... More

Sorry, to have upset you. You asked for a room for 2, I could see 3 people in the car. We do not provide free accommodation without prior arrangement. Honesty is the best policy and would be greatly appreciated . More

Horsham is a city en route between Adelaide and Melbourne and we needed a cheap, basic hotel to stay over the night. Tried the Smerdon for the first time and it is as desired. 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
