Great accommodation, comfortable and clean. Good location, close to supermarket and easy drive to the Blue Lake. Stayed overnight on our way to Adelaide. Three adults were all comfortably provided for. Friendly and helpful staff.

We had a great stay at Arkana. Our kids are both still in cots and we easily fit a portacot into each bedroom of a family suite. Location was easy to get to and the pool was a great bonus. The only downside was that the car park was a bit tight (but not a big deal). We'd definitely recommend...

We spent 2 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and the staff were friendly. The location was excellent and very central. The pool was a highlight especially for our 12 year old son. We couldn't get him out!!! Being an indoor pool was great too. We would highly recommend Arkana and wouldn't hesitate to stay...

Was there just for a stopover on the way to Adelaide. Stayed at the Executive room with 2 adults, 2 kids and a baby. Room was big enough and clean. Reception staff was friendly and helpful. Pretty close to everything. Would stay there again next time.

Although our stay was short, we thoroughly enjoyed all that Arkana had to offer - the kids loved the pool! The room was very spacious and comfortable and had all the facilities a family would need. Would come back!!

We stayed here for four nights over Christmas in a two bedroom family unit. It was fantastic! Great location, comfortable, roomy facilities and access to an indoor swimming pool.

Quiet, clean room. Enjoyed the spa bath. Reception recommended a pub to us 5 minutes walk from motel where we had a very nice meal. Tried TV upon return but could not get to work. Eventually found that no batteries in either remote! If guests are inclined to remove the batteries then remotes should be checked when rooms serviced. Would...

Nice and comfortable motor inn, not far from town center and located on the same street (Commercial St) where you can find all the eating places and shopping. Beds are comfortable. Friendly staff allowed us to check-in early.
