There was no research put into this overnight stopover. I am sure next time I could choose better. The room we were in needed to have the carpet cleaned. The bucket outside the door still had a cigarette butt and the smell seemed to seep into the room. The bathroom was clean and the bed was good. We neecded to... More

After several days travelling I was looking for a comfortable spot for a quiet night. I found it here. Friendly staff, nice room, good location and reasonable price. Will stay here next time I am in the area.

Stayed here for a night and it was very warm and comfortable that I was shocked by how cold it was when I stepped outside in the morning. The room was well equipped and cared for. Is really on the edge of town so need to drive to go anywhere.

We have stayed here twice and my work mates too, what a great place to stay, eat and drink.... Can sit back and relax here not having to go anywhere. The service is excellent, they look after your every need. And the restaurant food is delicious. Very disappointed to see a few negative reveiws, this place has around 12 months... More

We arrived after driving and then hiking all day. Several weeks before I'd booked the executive spa suite and was in dire need of a good soak. Upon arrival we were informed that they'd overbooked and our rooms had been downgraded to standard. The standard room was best described as tired. The toilet took minutes to (loudly) fill the tank...

Travelling through while working away from home! I have stayed at a few places in South Australia as usually I'm based in Victoria. Hotel room is not too bad, water pressure is great but no wifi access working at time of stay. Rooms are decent size and bed seems comfortable. Nothing is outdated and the room is clean. Initial impression... More

This motel was recommended to us and we arrived 10pm Monday night but still greeted with a friendly smile and given our key. Room was very tidy with a spacious ensuite. The heater was a little rattly as mentioned in another review but wasn't a problem as we turned it off at bedtime anyway. Breakfast in the restaurant was really... More

I was extremely disappointed with this motel. At the price we paid I expected a great deal more. The room we had needed an upgrade as it was very tired looking. For what we paid we would have expected to receive complimentary shampoo and conditioner. The air conditioner was very noisy but useless at warming the room on a very... More

Hi Travelled from Adelaide to have a conference and had a fabulous weekend. Very warm and inviting. Plenty of good times and lovely wines shared in the bar area and the food was really nice - they catered for all our food needs. Thanks Brenton & Kemelee for being such great hosts.

The room was nice with great windows and space. However the heater sounded worse than a freight train and gave as much warmth as a cool breeze. When I mentioned this to the owner after a 2 degree evening the simply said thanks for telling us. No apology or discount at all. Also the hotel is actually outside of Naracoorte.... More
