Stayed at this motel and paid $115 for the night on our way to the great ocean road. Wow the whole place is very dated and smelt of stale cigarettes not great if you have asthma. Shower had good water flow and pressure but that's about all that was good. Wifi also was a bit crap. Won't be staying again....

I booked this motel through the Qantas website after reading reviews of most of the motels in Mount Gambier. It I an older style motel with adequate sized rooms. The room had a microwave provide with enough crockery etc for a meal for two people. It is located not far from a major shopping centre and a short walk to...

Hello Gordon35au Thank you for your feedback. It is good to hear that your stay was clean and comfortable plus you managed to have wonderful showers each day. As you point out, we are the closest motel to the biggest shopping centre in town plus I can see you found one or more of our excellent restaurants / cafes that...

Wow is this decor dated (see photos). It reminded me a lot of staying at my grandmas house when I was a kid, the tiles, the seashell soap holder, the shower screen, even the crockery was old (and randomly mismatched?). We got a different type of random mug each day (shape, size, vintage) and the menu for brekkie was most...

We stayed in the interconnecting rooms, and found them to be clean and adequate. This arrangement was great for us traveling as an extended family. Although the rooms were a little dated, the bathrooms were recently renovated, which was nice. The owner was friendly and helpful, and he offered some great advice regarding things to see and do. Great value.

Whilst it was clean and quite comfortable, it did have very tired appeal to it, could use a major facelift not worth the money for what you get, considering the competition around the district, tiny bathroom and smallest flat screen tv imaginable.2hrs of free wifi when others are offering free internet. We stayed two nights 208.00

Hello Sylvia K Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to hear that you felt that you did not get value for money because of the bathroom, and as to the TV - your room had a 32 inch size screen. Whilst I would regard that as a medium size (for a middle-of-the-road standard motel like mine) I guess...

We stayed in room 12 which was a renovated room with good size bad, clean, good shower and lounge, new carpet and paint. Some rooms are not renovated so ring and make sure you have a good room. Road noise minimal, but we could hear the tv and shower from two rooms away so may be weary when crowded. The...

The only saving grace for the family room was the cleanliness....everything needed to be upgraded (except the tvs) or fixed....decided to have a look at the pool area...it is unusable....would not stay there again unless fully refurbished....well done to the cleaners!!!....

We only stayed one night & it was perfect for us. Rooms are big, very clean & well maintained. The motel is dated but you can tell time has been put in to maintain a high level of cleanliness. The bathroom was slightly small & the heater took awhile to heat up but they were minor things. For the price...

I booked this motel for two reasons - price and the fact that I was able to secure a room with two double beds, which was a real treat for my disabled son, who is quite large. I thought it was good value for money, as it was very clean and comfortable and a very short drive from all amenities....

Holy heck this is without doubt the worst place I've ever stayed at. To call the room dated is an understatement, it's a wreck! Perhaps I got a very bad room, room 26, I don't know. I can't believe they rent this place out, if it wasn't so late I would've just left then & there! It should be rented...
