“One of the best in Oz”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012 via mobile

Modern, welcoming, clean and shiny. Owners are lovely and extremely accomodating. Probably deserves a better title as it really is more than your average motel.

The rooms were like a 5 star hotel I don't know why is a motel the people that run it were so wonderful cannot wait to download the pictures we took with them and they are animal lovers as they have their little female princess who seems to take over the booking at reception lol and they were more than fantastic in allowing our dogs into their facilities I guess as a pet owner and you do the right thing people would allow them into more places like this one! Would Definetly recommend it to any one in the world this little town was fantastic and known for their antique dealers cannot wait to go back

I stayed overnight [18/01/2012] at this very, very good Motel, located in Strathalbyn, South Australia, whilst in the town for business. This is an extremely well run Motel,well laid out with plenty of parking space and easy turning areas. The landscaping and garden presentation over the entire site is wonderful, and really well maintained. I stayed in a queen sized bedroom, and from one end to the other, the room was maintained as brand new. Size wise it was quite large, well set out and, absolutely spotless in all areas. Large flat screen television, large selection of teas, coffees, biscuits and, fresh milk was on hand in the room. Air-conditioning was perfect, with push button remote control. Large en-suite bathroom, complete with separate bath and separate shower, and plenty of hot water available. The couple whom own and run this establishment, were perfect hosts, and offered lots of information about the town and surrounding areas. A drink voucher was also supplied, for redeeming a free Coffee, Beer or Wine, if dining at any one of a number of restaurants, and or eating establishments in the town. Overall experience was excellent. I will be staying there again, when next in town on business.

Room Tip: Single story layout, and the location and landscaping back from the road, on all sides, allowed no a...

Stayed for 6 nights at the Strath Motel and found it fantastic, great service, spotlessly clean and very quiet. There is plenty to do in and around Strathalbyn from wineries and farmers markets to the boat trip at Goolwa. The Strath motel provides a good place to base yourself. Restaurants in Strathalbyn do tend to be variations on a theme of 70's food so buy some goodies at the supermarket and a bottle of wine from one of the local wineries and have a picnic on the side of the Angus river instead.

Only stayed overnight at this motel, but it was very good. Very welcoming hosts, extremely friendly and ensure you have everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Rooms are well equipped and we had our own patio with tables and chairs. Would definitely stay again.
