we stayed at the hotel & ate here as well. Staff was very friendly & accommodating. Unfortunately there was not enough hot water for two people to have comfortable showers so that dampened our spirits. Food was fair in the dining room but happy with a good wine selection.

Thanks for the feed back - will certainly check out the hot water service - we use the same ones in rooms that service 6 guests, so assuming there might be a thermostat problem - we have 27 of those hot water units that rarely give us trouble - and if they do they can be replaced very quickly unlike...

After planning a trip the Ngaut Ngaut conservation park, we realized that we didn't want to drive there at 6am that morning. So we decided to find a place to stay that was closer and looked in Murray Bridge, but nothing really spoke to us. A bit further up the river, we found Mannum. This is a cute little town... More

We stayed here for the night after a weekend houseboat trip. Must say we were extremely disappointed. We were offered a room without a view for $100 or a room with a view for $160. We chose the view :( It looked over the caravan park and ferry :(The room seemed to be in a time warp from the 70's.... More

Thanks for the feedback - your comments re rates will be taken to next management meeting. The replacement gutter is on back order, was due late last week - still waiting................ Afraid doesn't matter how often we clean the stairs down, the birds show a lack of respect and continue to mess them - only alternate would be to install... More

We stayed at the Mannum Motel the night before our Murray River cruise. Our room was clean and spacious albeit it a little dated. No problem though it was comfortable and we had a lovely view to the river and the car punts to the other side of Mannum. The girls working reception and the restaurant couldn't have been more...

Initially the room we booked looked inviting. No views but we were only there overnight. The sofa was possibly a pull out bed but would be difficult for anyone with knee or hip issues to sit on as it was very very low. Other chairs were not really comfortable. The bed looked good, very much let down but shocking lumpy... More

You are limited in single night accommodation in Mannum. This was an old motel with old decor, but was comfortable enough, and fairly clean. It's a short walk from the main street and views of the ferry.

Thanks for your feedback - disappointing you only found us "average"- we are working on upgrading rooms - but have to say it is a long and expensive process- will get there but it is taking time. Dave More

We were meeting up with friends over a long weekend who were staying in the caravan park in Mannum. The cabins in the caravan park were booked out so we decided to stay at the Mannum Motel instead. As far as location goes it was perfect as the entrance to the caravan park was only about 50 metres away. As... More

This motel is looking a little tired. It is clean, but there was a chipped tile in the bathroom and part of the body of the basin cabinet was broken off. The air conditioning worked well, but was very noisy. The bed is comfortable enough, but the pillows were awful - take your own if you can. And pay a... More
