“3 BR apartments”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012 via mobile

Very nice apartments with QS beds in each room. Bedroom 2&3 locked if you don't pay for/ need them. They seem to be newly built with modern layout, amenities and furnishings.
Main BR has ensuite which also doubles as bathroom for everyone else having 2 entrances. Well appointed laundry and lovely kitchen.
Walking distance to a shopping mall and supermarket.
We didn't see these apartments on their website, but were told about them when we called. These apartments are not near the motel and they have other smaller apartments in other locations around the city.

Nice place for a one off stopover, bed was a little hard, but apart from that would recommend for a stopover. Great meal at the South Eastern hotel. Friendly service and close to town. Free wifi with code from reception

A quite central location with easy walking distance to eating places and the cinema. Room was excellent value for money. Would prefer a movie channel and less/no sport channels. I was also able to park my service truck at the door. The parking area seemed reasonably safe which is important to me

A good, older style motel with everything you need. Quiet location and close to the shops. Would stay again.

Went there during Xmas last year and stayed for 3 nights at a reasonable rate. Room is spacious and clean,quiet at night. Good location, walking distance to the city view points and there's a coles/ww? nearby. Got picked up from the bus station by John? (not that clearly) and he offered to give us a lift to the Blue Lake which looks amazingly blue. It's not a stylish place to stay but if you're looking for somewhere cozy and not that expensive, that would be it, especially for a family.

Came to Mt Gambier on holiday with no special plans other than a 2-day stopover, and chose Mid City based on advertising in Golden Chain pamphlet. John and Trudy, along with their staff, were nothing short of accomodating and friendly, showing me the extreme personable side of Australian locals that I've discovered on this trip. The room was clean and spacious, and held the necessary cooking items I required, being one who likes to cook for myself. First night in John assisted me in finding dining, and even provided the service necessary to have it delivered to my room. Fantastic! I returned to Mid City a week later on my return trip as I had an excellent experience with them prior. Again, I was treated like an old friend, not only by both John and Trudy, but also by the cleaning staff. I highly recommend Mid City to anyone travelling through Mt Gambier. Get to know the management. They've lots of local knowledge to help make your visit that much more enjoyable.

Room Tip: I stayed in Rm 3 on both visits. Choose a room like this if you like cooking something for yourself...
