My forefathers arrived in Strath, many years ago, and probably had quite a tough time setting up home,family and business. If the Strath motel had been here, it would have been effortless.

It was great to meet you davesunoz7. The owners and staff always love to welcome visitors to Strathalbyn and Fleurieu Peninsula and collectively ensure that every guest enjoys their stay with us. We did enjoy front row seats to some extraordinary storms recently, quite a talking point with most. Whatever the weather, our spacious rooms can cater well if required... More

My family of four stayed here one night on our way from Melbourne to Kangaroo Island. We had a family unit with a king bed and 2 singles in a separate room. Everything was scrupulously clean and in good condition. The only thing that could have been better was the lighting in the bathroom which was not very strong at... More

Stayed at "The Strath" for weekend when visiting the Strath Races, wineries in the area and a Tandem Sky dive jump at Langhorn Creek. The experience was very good from reception through to the very spacious rooms, kingsize bed and absolutely spotless condition. It is positioned well for a walk to town to visit the antique shops or a bite... More

My partner and I wanted to have a nice weekend away from home without driving too far. We happened upon this place through a few internet searches and were really happy with the choice.

I needed a cheap bed for a couple of nights over a business weekend. Fortunately the caravan park cabins were full, so I thought I'd consider other options. I'm so glad I did.

We have been to Strathalbyn many times over the past 40 years and have a number of favourite accommodation places. The Strath Motel would rate along the others as an excellent place to stay, not only for a stopover, but an extended trip. We selected the motel based upon other reviewers' comments and were glad we did. The modern motel... More
