We stayed here for 3 nights. We were looking for excellent value, somewhere to lay our heads after a busy day and the room certainly provided that. Most important to us was clean, fresh bedding and an easy on the eye decor. We had a well presented room with a queen and 2 single beds which was ideal for our...

Centrally located (Woolworths is 400m away), clean with very comfortable beds and courteous staff always willing to make sure our stay was most pleasant. The recent renovations have greatly freshened and modernised the rooms. Free WiFi was fast even though the motel was fully booked. Foxtel offered plenty of movie choices during the evenings. There is a restaurant on site...

I guess you can't argue with $40. Clean, tidy, efficient. But charmless. Wifi is such a given these days that it's considerable shortcomings was very frustrating. How hard can it be to sort it out. The whole experience was one of wishing we'd gone somewhere else.

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...
