New owners - not impressed Learn that all the loyal staff that had been working there had been all sacked and replaced with people working on the dole. Very disappointed to hear people can be treated this way. Other than that a nice location

Nice location in mount gambier, prices are okay, room was not very tidy though - didn't look like the room had been vacuumed properly and I found a wet towel in the closet which was a big turn off for me.

Flairly low tarriff but the rooms need a refurb. No guest laundry either. On the positive side reception was friendly and polite and a nice central location. Apparently the bed was new, despite being fairly firm it was comfortable. Free WiFi was adequate.

Very old and dated motel but all basic facilities are still OK and usable. Generally feel good for 1 night with the nice bed and pillow given. Cleanliness average with some spider net spotted on the spare pillows.

If you are looking for something clean and comfortable at budget prices this is your place! The location is central, the rooms cosy and the management helpful. Ask for the rooms with the new beds! Highly recommended!
