We stayed only one night but found the room to be large with a spa bath and king size bed. It was clean and well serviced. Thanks.

Stayed in the 2 bedroom self-contained terrace apartment that was clean and cosy. Comfortable bed, LCD TV with cable and DVD player, complimentary coffee, sugar, tea and milk.
Room serviced daily, grounds well maintained, nice heated pool and spa, proprietors friendly and helpful.
Woolworths and Dan Murphy just up the road, and hotel situated close to local attractions.
Definitely would stay again! Highly Recommended!

A mid sized motel/appartment complex of about 30 units. We stayed three nights and had a two bed apartment, using it as a base to explore this part of SA
Apartment was very well equiped and maintained and spotlessly clean. It had a laundtry and my daughter liked the pool.
Marie was able to fill us in on where to go, what to do and where to dine. Her advice was spot on.
Wireless internet allowed us to catch up on news back in the UK.
Everything you would expect from a well run and maintained motor inn.

This motel is very nice. It has very good and clean rooms with comfortable beds. Rooms has everything you'll need. There is also a nice swimming pool.
Only downside to this motel is that it's located between two major roads. Trucks drive by all night and the noise from them can be heard quite loud in the room. Because of this, the motel is not for the light sleepers.
We got a family room at this motel for the price of a double room. There is a discount for travelers carrying Lonely Planet.
The staff/owners are very nice, helpful and friendly.
Not many sights in Mt. Gambier, but the friendly staff can describe the few so good that you'll want to see them all.

I stayed at this motel over the Christmas break last year. We booked a 2 bedroom apartment. Comfortable accommodations, not overly clean, a few insects crawling around. I wasn't too impressed with some of the signage on the walls warning of penalties if dishes were not cleaned etc. While I don't expect the level of service of a 5 star hotel, I don't particularly like these demanding signs around the place. However, I did like the new flat screen television they had installed in the lounge room. Overall this is a decent and well located motel in Mount Gambier, just don't expect too much.
