We stopped over here with a plan to visit the Caves. Our welcome was cheerful and polite. Our Standard room was clean and tidy. The towels were well used, and while clean were past their best. The bathroom had new fittings, and our room was cosy and everything worked. Wireless internet is available, but at $130 per night for standard... More

The motel looks agreeable from the roadway, our room was up the back and around a corner, the bed was nice and comfortable ,the only heating was an ancient wall mounted A/C in the back wall, it roared like a freight train and was impossible to have it going in the night even though it was VERY cold outside, the...

This motel has everything you need for one or two night's stay. It is not fancy or luxurious but is clean and comfortable. The restaurant is very good and the menu just a bit different from the usual restaurant fare and the reception and restaurant staff are very smiley and helpful. The motel probably could do with some refurbishment and... More

Short but enjoyable stay in Naracoorte 3.5 hours from Adelaide on the Riddoch Highway and just short of Penola/Mt Gambier Region. Not too many local motels to choose from: the one in town always seems full and on this occasion we got the last room at the "MacIntosh". It was a very comfortable two-roomed affair with large double and two... More

Sure, the beautiful town of Naracoorte has Wolrd Heritage listed caves, but the real treasure lies at the William Macintosh Motor Lodge. There are a plethora of reasons why you should stop and stay at this hotel. Aside from the spacious, comfortable accommodation, the food and service at the Highlander restaurant, attached to the hotel is nothing less then outstanding.... More

We found this to be very good accommodation,very clean,convenient location about 2km from town,had a table suitable size for eating meals,free Foxtel,and there was adequate space in the room,The only negative was car access in and out, it needed signage to clarify which was which,but this was only a minor concern.

Paid for a double with sofa bed however was offered an upgrade to include a single bed without even asking. Room was a little dated with older furniture & the old floral bedding, however kept very clean with a nice large... More

Very clean, but not new. Will stay here again due to amazing food at the attached restaurant. Service was engaging and warm. Only reason for giving a 3 is dated appearance of room, but very clean room and bathroom. Can only fault room appearance, nothing else. Will be back.

My wife and I stayed at this motel for a night. The room was quite small, the bed was moving a bit, the mattress was quite bad, and I ended up with a backpain the next morning. The towels hopefully had been washed, but they looked so dirty that both of us used our own towels. It was on the... More
