Stayed here overnight in the only pet friendly hotel in Mt Gambier and it was great. Very welcoming host and a reasonable price for 3 adults and one dog @ $110 per night. They are centrally located and we had a very pleasant stay!

We needed a place to stay. This seemed as good as any. Our room was a standard motel room that had seen better days. Signs of wear and tear, a need for TLC, were in evidence. But it was clean and comfortable. The facility offered restaurant dining for guests. It was not a busy night. In fact, we were the... More

Overnight stop here and found the place to be very good value. It's definitely not the Hilton and it doesn't pretend to be, but for the price and location it's quite good. The decor is a little dated, especially the bathroom, but the hot water was great with good pressure and the towels were excellent quality. Has a flat screen... More

Let's face it, you're not staying at the Grand Hyatt. If you're after luxury, this place isn't that. But what it is is certainly clean, pet friendly, central. It also had great water pressure in the shower, lots of hot water, tea and coffee in the room. The linen looked clean as did the mattress. This was a short weekend... More

The Red Carpet is under new management and all rooms are being renovated. We were lucky to obtain one of the completed rooms. There was plenty of room for the two of us with ample storage. The bathroom was lovely with a walk- in shower which is much better in my opinion than having to climb into a bath in... More

We found this place on lastminute.com and got a room because it was cheap for just an overnight stay. Bed was comfortable and room was nice enough. Didn't really speak to the staff but was greeting wasn't very warm. A place id stay again if I had to.
