“A VERY RELAXING WEEKEND”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

We booked into the Strath Motel, sight unseen, for a quiet and relaxing weekend - and that's exactly what we got - with interest. The room was quite large and well appointed. The bed gave me 9 1/2 hours deep sleep with some of my best dreams ever. We've slept in some fairly interesting places in our travels over the least 3 years but this was a cracker. Maybe it was just the right place at the right time, but it really was the RIGHT place. I have never been so relaxed! Nothing grand or fancy, but a lovely location staffed by a wonderful couple who really knew how to be hosts. They were helpful , but not 'in your face'. We will be back to the Strath and really can't wait to do it. Next time we'll go when I'm not so physically and mentally drained. But what a great job it did in the rejuvenation process. Ten out of ten for everything.
We stayed on a Scoopon deal and expected to be relegated to the back as has happened with other Scoopons (those silly silly people - a Scoopon is a taster and bad news spreads faster than good news). We were treated as any other guest and this made the difference. We will spread the good news about this motel - AND we will go back and pay full price.

Room Tip: They are all excellent.

We were lucky enough to stay here using a scoopon.
From the outside one might surmise the rooms to be quite small, but upon opening the door you would be surprised by the generous size of the room. Modern amenities, friendly staff, great little country town with lots of history. Will definitely stay here again next time!

We spent one night at the Strath Motel & were very impressed with the rooms & management. The room & bathroom, which were both huge, were spotless & contained everything that could be needed. Attention to detail was fantastic. The King bed was really comfy and the cooked breakfast was very generous & delicious. Staff were friendly & helpful. We wished we'd booked for longer but look forward to returning at another time for a longer stay. Would highly recommend this Motel to all, including pet owners as there are 2 pet friendly rooms. We had a lovely stay. Thankyou....

We had a most enjoyable stay at the Strath Motel. The friendly welcome at the front desk and beautiful surroundings of the motel impressed us at the start. The room was large with excellent facilities, especially the bathroom and a pleasant outdoor setting to enjoy the outside native vegetation.

Stayed in this motel for one night after visiting friends and not wanting to drive back to Adelaide. We didn't have high expectations but were very pleasantly surprised. The welcome was warm and friendly and the service efficient. The room was very clean and spacious with two comfortable lounge chairs. There was also a private outside seating area. We would recommend this motel.

We stayed here over the weekend and were so impressed. The room was lovely and spacious, clean and had a nice outside area where you could sit. Breakfast of bacon and eggs was a very generous serve and was delicious. Plunger coffee was also included. The manager remembered that we loved coffee and on the second morning delivered an extra large plunger for us. We definitely recommend this hotel and the langhorne creek winery area.
