The location is in the central part of town so you can walk to Cafes, Pubs, Jetty, Steam Train Station and Brewery. Rooms are large and generally clean. Seems they haven't done anything about the mattresses, we had to insist on a room change for our second night. Grudgingly done. Attached is an Irish Pub, but it wasn't being patronised... More

Both the kids and adults enjoyed their meals. The kids loved getting their meals in a boat box. They liked choosing their salad and veg at the salad bar. We went on a Thursday night which is $12 schnitzel night. Great value... If in Goolwa, this is the pub for great value for money.. Highly recommend.

Just stayed at the Goolwa Central Hotel, the room was large and clean, however they need to buy some new mattresses. The one we had was high on one side and low on the other, I felt like I was going to roll out of bed all night!!

The good thing about the room was it was spacious. the location was good on the main street where access to shops was closeby and restaurants . The facilities were poor it was just as well im a prepared traveller and had my own towels... More

Lady owner appeared very drunk by 5.30. Cried poverty and wanted us to buy some chips in a jar for $1 and a newspaper. Room clean and big but not 5 star. No continental breakfast as advertised. When requested it we received a basket with slices of very stale bread. We had three very abusive visits to our room. Only... More

I booked out a number of rooms for a conference we had in town. Everything went very smoothly, Natalie and John were the most wonderful, accommodating and friendly hosts. Rooms were very big and comfortable at a very decent price. It is rare to find such welcoming and genuine people, with a really good place to stay. The downstairs bar... More

We stayed in this convenient motel overnight at the weekend whilst attending a family function further down the coast. It was very clean, comfortable and had everything in the unit that we required, including provisions for breakfast. It was also extremely quiet considering it is situation on the main road leading into Goolwa. We would definitely have no hesitation in... More

Stayed in this hotel, as we were going to a wedding close by. I found the owner to be friendly, the room clean with all the amenities you need. Comfy bed, good shower and great location. There is a bar/restaurant attached, which is handy. There are lots of small cafes close by, very handy for a coffee. Great location for... More
