Mannum Motel
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Mannum
Reviewed January 11, 2012

We stayed at the motel for the third time in the last five years. The rooms are a little tired and worn. But they are clean. An update is due. The staff are friendly. Brekky is good. We spent three nights there last week and were happy with our family room.

Mannum is a pretty Murray River town. There is really no other motel in town. The motel is situated at the end of town near the car ferry.

I would stay there again.

Friendly staff but completely run-down rooms. The motel has definately seen better days, just like the city of Mannum. Kindda icky rooms, especially the bathroom. For what you get, it's overpriced. Wouldn't stay here again, not even for a single night. Can't say anything about the food, 'cause we decided to better skip dinner.

Disappointing you didn't enjoy your stay in Mannum - especially at the Mannum Motel!
We have been working through the upgrades, we do acknowledge there are some rooms that do need some more attention, we would welcome anyone to inspect any rooms anytime to see for themselves the work that has been done.

This family-run motel offers a friendly welcome; nothing is too much trouble for the hard-working owners. Yes, the decor is old and tired (not to mention the ageing fridges and televisions) but the rooms were spotlessly clean. Some have glimpses of the Murray, and from the restaurant you can see the ferries criss-crossing the river.
The motel is at one end of the little town, with its attractive facades along a street parallel to the Murray.
The food in the restaurant was reasonably priced and varied; we were with a tour group but saw the main menu. Vegetarian food was thoughtfully and tastefully cooked specially for us. Breakfast buffet-style was substantial (with some of the best field mushrooms we saw in South Australia), and the in-room breakfast menu had some unusual combinations to offer variety to travellers.
We would have no hesitation in detouring to stay there again when we travel that part of the world.

Mannum Motel 76 Cliff Street, Mannum

Mannum, about an hour from Adelaide, is a great town for seeing the Murray River. The town is a center houseboat rentals. The local Tourist office houses a small museum and the helpful staff can direct you to local sights and make arrangements for tours. We enjoyed a 1 1/2 hour river cruise, including afternoon tea, with Jester Cruises.

The Mannum Motel is located at the edge of town across from the free cross-river car ferry dock, near the Tourist Office and within walking distance of the entire town. It is part of the Golden Chain of motels for which we had obtained a 10% discount card when we stayed at another of their motels. We had a large room overlooking the Murray River for A$110 per night. Place is clean but somewhat worn. Our queen bedded room had A/C, TV, tea/coffee making facilities, miniBar, table and chairs, and sofa. Bathroom was adequate and had a hair dryer. Rooms without river view are somewhat less. Owners were very helpful. There is a pool, which was not in service when we were there. Laundry, including soap powder, is free.
