I have stayed at this motel a couple of times, and the owners have always made me feel welcome as you would expect from a family run business. I agree with the review that described the rooms as being basic, clean and quiet. This has been my experience every time, and I would also mention that there is plenty of... More

Small things I found annoying, we stayed there under the Travel Auction 3 + 1 nights. The sheets were clean, but the bed old and soft. The electric blanket was not working on one side so had to be changed. The airconditioner is very loud. The floors were not vacummed the whole time we stayed nor the toilet/shower cleaned -... More

From the entry you would expect to find a comfortable motel room. We should have turned away as soon as we met the staff. small silly things added to room cost 1.5% for credit card? $5 for a Saturday night? room large but dark. Night hot - air conditioner so loud impossible to use while in room. bed so low... More

This is a good place to stay if you want basic, clean and quiet rooms. The aircon was really loud but worked well. There is a pool, not very big but we enjoyed it as it also has a spa and jets to swim against. It is a short walk to pubs, shops and tourist attractions. They do an excellent... More

Had a good time sightseeing and lots to look at and lots of history in this town. The people are very friendly and easy to talk to and only too keen to help with suggestions on what to do and see. The tourist information center is also very helpful and friendly. The motel was tidy but cleanliness needed just a... More

Went down there based on recent reviews and not the experience I expected. Took the lady 20 minutes to come to the front office and found her to be inconvenienced in someway, well that was the impression I got. Explained everything that I didn't really need to know and that was hard enough due to her accent. No hot breakfast... More

We have stayed at this motel a few times over the past years but this was our first time with new owners (we haven't been for over 5 years). Found the lady very hard to understand and feel that the owners did not have the right personality for running a motel. The previous owners, Bill and Barbara were more friendly... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay with another family. Upon arrival we were greeted like old friends. The family room was huge and had a small kitchenette and a separate bedroom for the kids. Continental breakfast provisions were included which was very handy. Right next door was a bakery which served nice coffee. We had a lovely dinner in the motel's... More

Absolutely loved supper friendly Russian woman and her English husband. We were greeted like a long lost family members with lots of love. A young man offered to carry our bags to our room, which was not expected and a very pleasant gesture. In regards to rooms, well it was a standard room, neat and clean but very spacious compare...

I stayed at Goolwa Central in March with my boyfriend and few days ago the owners have contacted me asking to write a review for the place. Have to say that we enjoyed staying at this motel. It is not grand, but owners were incredibly helpful and made me and my boyfriend feel very welcome. They are both of European... More
