Everything was thought of in this comfortable room. There was plenty of space, good bathroom and a little kitchenette in the room as well as a communal cooking area. There was also a nice hotel next to the motel that had a good dining room (very old-worldly). Room was affordable ($98), with all we required. Rick the owner/manager was a... More

Not on the main street. It is quiet and well appointed with all the amenities you need for a stopover. Staff are friendly, the television reception was poor when we were there and the wifi, while complimentary, only worked if you were very close to the front office. Recommended for a stopover.

As is often the case with Australian motels it isn’t always the most expensive that offer the best option. The Peterborough Motel is only a budget motel so must be judged as such. However, it is clean, comfortable and very friendly. A good choice for a night or two in this interesting part of South Australia., The property is conveniently... More

We pulled in after driving from Hay and having had to ditch all our fresh fruit and vegetables crossing the border, and the owner couldn't have been more helpful! He put our freezer blocks in his own freezer, and let us have fresh herbs from his garden and the most delicious apricots I have ever tasted that we got to... More

We booked on the way to Peterborough, not knowing what to expect. The room was spotless, a good size, free wifi, just off the main road and close to 2 Hotels to check out for dinner. Management was friendly and helpful. There is a camp kitchen for those who would rather cook their own. We would definitely stay there again.... More

On my way to Marree (see my separate review), I stayed one night at the Peterborough Motel on the 12th April, 2015. My allocated room (#3) was surprisingly large and had everything where it should be to facilitate a comfortable stay. Host Richard Hage was very friendly and helpful, and it became evident from the start that motorbikes are welcome... More

Located just off the main street, this is a simple but quite adequate little property. Management were friendly and helpful and the room was simple and in good repair. Hotels and cafes nearby and VIC just across the road so quite convenient.

The rooms are large and very well decorated. We arrived Christmas Eve and the proprietor cooked us breakfast on Christmas morning, despite us being the only guests. He also gave us fruit from his excellent garden. He was also very helpful with advice about shops, restaurants etc in the town. The hotel was a pleasant surprise.

It's in the Budget chain and quite inexpensive, and certainly not new. But we were very impressed by the facilities for the price and location. It was off the main road just a little, and was certainly quiet (not that it's a busy noisy highway anyway). It was an easy walk to a variety of eateries and a pleasant little... More

We overnight-ed here after a stay in the Flinders ranges on our way South to the Barossa. Motel was basic but comfortable. The Motel also offers the benefit of a well fitted out camp kitchen with everything you require to cook a meal. It also has a pool.This was the cheapest accommodation in our 4 weeks in South Australia
