      Happy travellers

      Comfortable, convenient with short walk to restaurants through parkland to Rundle St. Enjoyed the pool. Parking onsite available, but limited. Needed to request maintenance to fan & power switch in room which were attended to promptly.

      Nice place to rest

      Nice place could use some refurbishment, being school holidays noisy kids after 10:30 pm was annoying. Nice food in the restaurant, like most motels at the moment, dead atmosphere.

      The property was well situated in Mt Gambier. The rooms were clean and well looked after. We only met one staff member, but she was very friendly. We were disappointed due to the restaurant was not open for the 3 nights we were there. Very annoying, as this was the main reason we booked at this motel. Otherwise our stay was pleasant.

    • 6.0.Good

      This was the second time I've stayed at this motel and the first was a better experience. This time there was residue left on the bathroom tiles where I could see some shoe prints that weren't mine, the white hand towel hanging up was dirty and the shower flooded the room as soon as it was turned on, leaving the bath mat saturated. It was definitely a bit more disappointing than my first experience staying there.
