“Lovely Motel ”
Reviewed November 23, 2013 via mobile

We spent one night at the Strath Motel & were very impressed with the rooms & management. The room & bathroom, which were both huge, were spotless & contained everything that could be needed. Attention to detail was fantastic. The King bed was really comfy and the cooked breakfast was very generous & delicious. Staff were friendly & helpful. We wished we'd booked for longer but look forward to returning at another time for a longer stay. Would highly recommend this Motel to all, including pet owners as there are 2 pet friendly rooms. We had a lovely stay. Thankyou....

We had a most enjoyable stay at the Strath Motel. The friendly welcome at the front desk and beautiful surroundings of the motel impressed us at the start. The room was large with excellent facilities, especially the bathroom and a pleasant outdoor setting to enjoy the outside native vegetation.

Stayed in this motel for one night after visiting friends and not wanting to drive back to Adelaide. We didn't have high expectations but were very pleasantly surprised. The welcome was warm and friendly and the service efficient. The room was very clean and spacious with two comfortable lounge chairs. There was also a private outside seating area. We would recommend this motel.

We stayed here over the weekend and were so impressed. The room was lovely and spacious, clean and had a nice outside area where you could sit. Breakfast of bacon and eggs was a very generous serve and was delicious. Plunger coffee was also included. The manager remembered that we loved coffee and on the second morning delivered an extra large plunger for us. We definitely recommend this hotel and the langhorne creek winery area.

Six of us stayed here for two nights and found this motel to be excellent the units were clean and comfortable with all required of a motel. There were nice private balconies out side to enjoy a wine or beer. The staff were very friendly and helpful on advising where to dine and supplied tokens for a free beer or wine at the Victoria hotel, this we enjoyed with our meal. A very nice motel.

Room Tip: All rooms good at back of car park.

We stayed here for two nights as we had a wedding in a nearby town.

Although I have been to Strathalbyn many times, I have never stayed in the town so decided to pick the Strath Motel. It was a toss up between this place another hotel and a few B'n'B's but I am glad I made the right decision to come here.

I booked over the phone with friendly Fiona and happily paid a deposit. I received a follow-up email with further details. I was even able to organise a late check-out of 12pm.

The Alan and Fiona are excellent hosts. We turned up at 8:30pm on a Friday night after flying in from interstate and driving to Strath. They waited for us arriving with no pressure to pay upfront (as most places insist) and after a long day, this was a refreshing welcome.

The rooms were very big, clean, comfortable and had everything we needed. It even had an outdoor pergola area where you could sit and relax. The towels were clean and fresh and the bed was comfortable. here is ample parking. The setting is very pretty.

The next day we missed our bus to the wedding as several buses had turned up for 3 different weddings. Alan kindly offered and drove us to our destination about approx 5km out of town. What a life saver!

These hosts are serious about customer service and have a genuine care for their guests needs and experience at the motel. Nothing was a problem! The location is on the edge of the two main streets and everything is within walking distance.

The only suggestion I have is maybe get foxtel or a movie channel!

We had a great time and was impressed by the level of service!

Room Tip: We stayed in No 3 and it was great! Not sure what the other rooms are like but I am sure they are a...

My wife and I spent 3 nights here last weekend. The reception we received on check-in was absolutely fantastic. The manager was extremely frienly and all the booking details were managed entremely efficiently. Being given vouchers for free drinks at local eateries was a nice touch. The room was spaceous, clean and well equipped. We would definately recommend staying here to anyone!
