An older style motel that we were very happy with. Loved having a kitchen sink! And a back & a front door! Room service breakfast was available at a very good price. I loved being able to sit outside and relax watching the pelicans and other birdlife. Very very peaceful. The room had two queen beds & one single with... More

The room needed refurbishing and maybe a little extra cleaning but had a back door where you could watch parrots and other birds. The receptionist was friendly although we arrived after official check-in hours and had to ring a service bell. This was quite ok for a 1 night stay but Goolwa is a nice base to explore Coorong so...

We stayed 2 nights in a spa suite which was fantastic value for money. Yes, there were a few things like the bathroom floor tiles that were a bit dated, and the wall skirts were scuffed, but the room was spacious and spotlessly clean, with quality curtains and quite new carpet, and the bed was very comfortable. It looks like... More

Our room was clean and spacious and there were lots of birds around the property but that is all this dated motel had going for it. The furniture had big chips missing, the carpet was threadbare and there were big gaps around the doors even the mattress was starting to sag.

While the room is a little old, staying here was still a great experience - the staff was very helpful and the setting was incredible, right on the river with a beautiful sunrise and lots of birds around. Simply magical.

We have stayed here a few times over the years and marvel at the fact that the word has not gone out effectively that this Motel is worthy of much greater patronage. It is located in a quiet area, the owners are very friendly and eager to please and the outlook is absolutely superb!

Stayed a night in this motel and found the room to be clean comfortable and quiet. Comfortable bed. Lots of hot water for the shower too! It is an older style budget motel situated near a canal to the river which was nice to stroll along the next morning. Nice choice!

This place was a good value and the rooms were clean and serviced every day. Upon check in, they explain that they will open the restaurant if you book before 4pm, and while we haven't had dinner here we have had room service breakfast which was on time, good value, and tasted good! The rooms are a bit out dated,... More
