This property is in need of some beautifying. Whilst everything was very clean the rooms were small and bathroom very dated. Our room had an adjoining room and we could hear all conversations and TV through the paper thin door. Staff we dealt with were pleasant and helpful with suggestions for dining etc.

Room Tip: This is definitely a budget motel - try not to get an adjoining room if you want a peaceful night.

We just stopped here overnight in our travels. This motel provided value for money. Well situated and easy to find. Nothing about this place is grand or flash, but it was clean and comfortable and provided breakfast of cereal and toast.

we stayed over the post Christmas period for one night attending speedway.
Staff were very friendly and accommodating with our requests, room was very clean and good nights sleep was had. Great location to speedway meant a short trip after event finished.
We wouls surely stag again

Room Tip: as far away from the main road is good, but not essential

Stayed two nights travelling through Mount Gambier.
The room was large with a large en-suite. The room is dated but everything was clean and all appliances (including shower heads) worked efficiently.
Very well located.
Definitely good value for money.

Room Tip: Our room was upstairs on the same wing as the reception and we did not have any problems

Got it for $100 less than any other hotel which had room available during the Christmas break. So assumed I will get a crappy room. But was pleasantly surprised.

The rooms were very clean and the sheets and towels were very nice. Has a kitchen which was open during Christmas. Overall I had very good experience.

Room Tip: Get lucky I guess
