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

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

Staff were friendly and happy for us to arrive late. The rooms are slightly dated for the price, but the bed is comfy... More
