Southgate Motor Inn

Reviewed December 15, 2013

I booked a Mystrey Hotel on a Web site and scored this place. When I did my initial search on Trip Advisor and read teh reviews I was very worried that my wife wouldn't like it.

Well when we turned up it was a newly renovated Hotel and when I saw the room, it was like a 1 bedroom partment with a seperate lounge and bedroom. So it was better than I expected. The only down side is the TV sorts of sits in wall cavity that seperates the room and so the sound travels from the lounge to the bedroom.

it has a really nice outdoor seating area as well and then really nice green grass out to the pool. The renovation looks ok. Just a few minor things where they look like they have done it in a hurry.

So for a one night stay it was great.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back away from teh Highway and away from the Mc Donalds Drive through

I stayed overnight in Shepparton, and found myself here as part of a "mystery hotel" deal. At first blush, the one-bedroom apartment seemed to live up to its 4-star rating. It looked modern, well-appointed and sparkling clean, and I began to doubt the bona fides of the Tripadvisor ratings I had read and shuddered at upon learning and researching the "mystery hotel's" name. However, soon the disillusionment began. So many corners had been cut for economy's sake - very poor quality shampoo/tissues, hardly any milk, no hairdryer (even though advertised as "4 star" hotel), phone broken, dirty bin under kitchen sink. A pity really, as it could have been so much better with more competent management.

Motel appears to have been recently renovated, however cleaning has not kept up to the renovations. Room looked okay at a quick glance, but the noticed things like coffee cup rings on the bedside table, dust and cobwebs in the corners. Outside in the courtyard, communal ashtrays had not been emptied for several days and sachets of coffee & sugar littered the pathway. Main bed was okay, though my son said the sofa bed was very uncomfortable. Could hear the next door McDonalds drive though speaker from the room and could also hear what was going on in the room next door.

While a little bit away from town this tastefully renovated motel tries hard and I expect that people could get a great stay. But we had problems with a blocked sink. They quickly and politely changed us rooms. The next room however had a foul smelling bathroom which we put up with for 2 days.
On the positive, its good value and they provide an acceptable continental breakfast and its well located to McDonalds and Subway and the highway. Good sheets and towels, a pleasant change from most small motels.
Get the plumbing fixed and you will be on the right track.
Look forward to seeing this next time we stay.

If you read my reviews you'll see that I'm not all that hard to please. This seemed promising; location ideal for the purpose of our visit, refurbished rooms, photos looked good. So?

On first glance, all was good. Room nice, bed comfortable, heating efficient and quiet, spa bath clean. Then I started to notice the problems. I don't know who did the grouting around the bath, but it was appalling; most of it had fallen out. There was nowhere in the bathroom to hang towels, though you could see where there once had been. There was, however, a flat screen TV in the bathroom...it didn't work.

It seems as if, when they refurbished, they went for the flashy stuff (huge flat screen TV in the room) and just hoped like hell you wouldn't notice the corners that had been cut elsewhere.

So, would I advise people not to stay here? No. On balance the place is ok. It is not expensive, it's quiet, the location is pretty good. Just remember, you can't always go by the photos in the brochures.

Clean room, new facilities, complimentary breakfast, nice court yard, comfy bed, excellent service.

I arrived on a cold raining night, reception was opened late till 10pm, stepped in to a warm (aircon & light was on) & clean room; complimentary breakfast for the next morning (toast, oats, cereal, milk, juice), jumped on the large comfy king size bed; all my stress was gone.
The front door parking gave additional comfort.

After bantering out in town the next day, I came back to a serviced room: new/re-made bed, breakfast for the next day, new (or newly folded) towels.

Serious value for your money. I will be back for seconds and thirds for sure. Highly recommended.

Thanks Southgate.
