The owners were excellent, really helpful and welcoming. Rooms look to have been recently had a makeover, they were really nice. Clean, plenty of room and quiet. Would totally recommend the Strath Motel. And walking distance to town.

Although we read some reviews for this motel before booking, we are always a little apprehensive as past experience has shown us that reviews and photos are not what they seem. We were very impressed, from the pleasant welcome to the attractive complex and then to the room. Firstly there was a luggage bench long enough for two suitcases, so... More

My husband and I recently spent two nights at this lovely motel. The room was spacious, very clean, comfortable and very well appointed. The bathroom was much larger than a lot of motels which made a nice change. Our room, situated across the front of the complex, was quiet at night and had a lovely little patio complete with table...

By far the best motel I've stayed in. In a great location, close to the main shopping strips. The rooms are spacious, spotless, and well equiped. Bathroom was large with separate bath - a rare treat! The staff were fantastic. A definite stand out.

This might be the best Motel that I've stayed at in Oz. It has big updated rooms with bathroom that are also generous in size. An 15 minute easy walk to the heart of town for meals or shopping. We were just passing through for night, but I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay... More

The second time we have stayed here and both experiences were really nice. Great rooms, lovely staff and perfect location for a base for exploring the area. Lots of cafes to try, pubs and location of the exciting Lower Lakes Stockmans Challenge at The Riding Patch each September.

This is one of, or possibly the, best motel room style accommodation I've ever stayed in. It was very large with a lovely outdoor courtyard (although it was too cool to take advantage of it while I was there!). As I can't stand small stuffy motel rooms, I was immediately won over by the space, which also included a large... More

Spent one night here on a wine trade trip, good clean and spacious room, friendly reception staff, wifi costs a few bucks. Good AC and facilities in room, cup of tea and some decent biscuits. Well priced room service breakfast was nice as well.

The Strath Motel is ideally located for tourists wishing to explore historic old Strathalbyn, nearby wineries, the Fleurieu Peninsula, and the Adelaide Hills/ Hahndorf regions. The rooms are modern, large, clean and beautifully presented, with many extras not regularly found in a so called 'standard room.' The full sized dining table was a definite plus! Just one tip, if you... More
