“Clean and comfortable”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

We paid for a deluxe room facing Lake Bonney. The room had a great view with an outside porch to sit, have a coffee and drink in the view. The shower was hot, the bed comfy and although some of the furnishings need updating we were happy enough. The TV and air cond worked fine. The only complaint was that we could hear the couple in the room next door snoring/talking through the wall. Not 5 stars but ok. We paid $135 per night.

Room Tip: We wouldn't go below deluxe. Even though theres a microwave and toaster (on request) bring your...

Recently had short break at this motel. Found staff quite friendly but several problems with electrics. First room was very dated with dark furnishings and ripped carpet. Tap dripped constantly. When asked if possible to move staff were more than obliging. The new room was much more comfortable but had no reception on tv. Manager came and tuned in but that night after returning from having tea in nearby town all power was lost when kettle plugged in. As was around 8.30 the office was closed. The rooms have no ph for emergencies so used mobile to ring owners and report power outage. Went straight to message bank. Left msg but no one bothered to call back or come fix the problem . Neighbor tried to help but to no avail. Ended up going to bed around 9 as not able to watch tele or have a cuppa. Power came back on early in morning when owners came to do breakfasts. Went off again when kettle was plugged in. I understand problems can happen but think it is very poor when unable to reach someone to rectify in an emergency. Owners seemed to think it was a trivial complaint

Room Tip: Ask to see room first and check all power before 6.00pm while office still open

We stayed 2 nights at Barmera Lake Resort Motel. We were disappointed with our room.
Carpet and rug needed a good clean. Facilities for what we paid were poor. ie. no stovetop cooking, bowl only to wash dishes. (this was annoying, as we were not camping) No gas in BBQ.
Overall, overpriced for the available facilities. Could not recommend and would not use again.

We came across this motel through Travel Auctions and had no problems with our booking or any other aspects due to this. Our room easily accommodated the six of us, four early teen kids, and was quite comfortable with the only negative being the small kitchen space with no sink but that was easy to overcome. We made full use of the facilities with the tennis court, pool table, table tennis table and swimming pool all being good enough for our expectations and made use of their kayaks. The staff were very helpful giving us free use of the kayaks all weekend, although they were a little leaky, which provided hours of fun for us. The foreshore location is brilliant with lovely grassed areas and a little sandy beach on the lakes edge, and we were only a short 5 minute walk from town, and next door to the caravan park where the kids were able to use their jumping pillow and blow up swimming pontoons. All up a fantastic weekend and i would recommend the accommodation and the township of Barmera to all.

My fiance and I spent 2 nights here over the Christmas period, it was my first time to a small country hotel and I have to say it was an experience that was beyond my expectations.

The location is superb fronting right onto Lake Bonney, nothing was too much trouble for the owner and all done with a smile, the room was more than comfortable and probably one of the cleanest hotels I have stayed in (better than some 5 star city hotels).

The beds were the most comfortable I have ever encountered in a hotel, so much so that I had to let the owner know how wonderful they were.

I'll definitely be back, thank you for making my stay so pleasant!

Booked in for one night travelling through to Victoria. Had travelled about 800km that day so were only looking for somewhere to get a good nights sleep before travelling on. The room was older style and quite basic, however it was clean and inexpensive and the bed was comfortable.

We arrived later in the day to find that our room we booked had not been made up! Well lucky for us they upgraded us to the house normally for families that slept 6. Very clean, comfortable and plenty of room and even a spa bath:) Thanks heaps!
