                  5.0

                  For a business person trying to carry bags, laptop and suit bag up the stairs it is not suitable. Eighties pink colour in side and tired. Room heating not the best and ordinary tired bathroom with dirty grout.

                • Older travelers
                  9.2

                  Quick and efficient check-in and check-out. Very clean & tidy room and clean bathroom with plenty of towels and provisions (ie mini bar) if required. I liked the fact you could open the window for fresh air and still feel secure. Good sized room and plenty of space for storage of suitcases etc. I'd definitely book to stay again.

                  Clean rooms, free internet, good sized rooms and it has a good location.

                  A little bit noisy because it is near the main road,

                  The Motel room was very clean and tidy. The staff were very friendly. We ended up staying for 3 nights instead of 2 nights. That is why we keep coming back and stay their when we visit Mount Gambier.

                  7.4

                  Spacious room. Even though it's on the main road into and out of Mount Gambier, it's quiet. Convenient that it has a restaurant. Motel is good value for money.

                  Quality if the restaurant food was not great but the service was very good. Parts of the motel need a bit of housekeeping and tidying up.

                • Family with children
                  8.8

                  We only spent a small amount of time as was down for a 21st. Only live 120km away so don't normally look for accommodation. Was a lovely room all the same and the staff very friendly.

                  The bed was a little too firm.

                • Older travelers
                  10.0

                  Wow! This was by far the most luxurious Motel on our trip. The chap on reception was very helpful and had a great sense of humour on our arrival. The room far exceeded our expectations - palatial is a good word to describe our room!

                  The outside door to the car park was not working very well and I had to run right round the outside of the hotel and through the large corridors to open it and by the time I'd got there another three customers were also having trouble gaining access - so I know it wasn't just us!

                • Older travelers
                  3.2

                  Im afraid I didnt like anything about my stay.

                  The reception staff was rude (male) abrupt & non friendly. The place was not clean at all & was in need of some urgent maintenance.

                  Easy to find.

                  8.2

                  Very big bath. Big mirror and good lighting in the bathroom.

                  We had to carry our suitcases upstairs. There was no insect screen on the window.

                • Older travelers

                  Location to where we had to be the next morning to catch a bus.
