Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very outdated motel. The owners are trying to get things renovated but will take years. The room was outdated but clean. The shower was a bit hit and miss for pressure. Quiet location and owners are very friendly. There is a BBQ for quest use which came in handy

Don't waste your money. They use bore water which you can't drink (they give you 1 bottle of water a day) as it's untreated which technically means you are not allowed to shower or bathe in it either, so couldn't shower for a couple days. The tennis court was mouldy to the point the net is yellow. Toilet is extra small you can't shut the door unless you are a the size of a stickstick. No where to cook as you can't cook in bedrooms unless you wanna pay $50 to use BBQ (Not a Depoist) NO quilt covers everything was dusty... place is very outdated.

If you are a person who values great service over flash glitz and glamour, then come and stay at the international. From the moment we arrived, we were asked "what we needed and if we were comfortable". We were also asked if we wanted fresh coffee in the morning instead of the condiments in the room. The next morning we surfaced and were brought fresh coffee to our room. Service with a smile. It is hard to find honest and genuine caring managers and staff but you get it here. You don't have to ask, as it is offered here, before you even think of it. Let's be honest about the Motel. It is a bit old and tired but it is clean and spacious. The rooms are being upgraded at the moment and if you, like I said before, want a happy caring experience, then stay here. The staff are so nice I will be telling everyone to stay here.

Very old and dated, can’t drink the water- so pipes need upgrade, found spider in bed, although room seemed clean enough. No fly screen on window though. Car parking very good. Ground floor units, not all amenities are in use- ie conference room or restaurant.

Read any previous reviews, They all apply. This place is semi derilict and would make a great set for a period horror movie. If you can't get any other accommodation in Mt Gambier go to the next town.

This hotel is a disgrace. It is a seedy, scruffy, tired motel with no facilities or redeeming features of any kind. It looks like it was built in the 1970s and never maintained. there are no staff on site - there is a local number to ring to get someone to come to check in. My wife and I were shocked at what we found. We strongly wish payment had not been in advance.

Even though the staff were accomodating enough, the room looked nothing like the photos. The bed linen was kind of clean, but there were cobwebs in the room and the bathroom was so old, we decided to skip the shower and wait till we were in our next accommodation!

We got a bad vibe as soon as we pulled up, We were the only car there in the ran down motel. We went into the open reception and rang the bell for 20mins. Couldn’t find anyone around, we thought it was abandoned. I ended up contacting a man on the phone whom said he was in town doing his shopping and we would have to wait another 30mins for him to return. Not a good start. The reception had ants all over the counter and tables due to old food laying around. During the 30 more minutes we were made to wait I contacted another Hotel in town for an alternative. A woman come out and was confused as to why we were there. I said we had a booking for the weekend and she had no idea what I as talking about. I asked for our accommodation to be cancelled free of charge due to the poor service and uncleanliness of the motel which she then replied her English was bad, she couldn’t cancel my booking as she didn’t understand me and told us to wait for the man. We were extremely unhappy at this point. After 30mins she got the man on the phone as he was still in town. I explained I wanted a refund in which he just laughed at me and told me to wait. He finally arrived and told as that if we left the total amount would still be charged to my account as he could not cancel my booking. This went back and forth until finally I cancelled my booking (with a cancellation fee!!!) the whole situation took almost 2 hours and was the worst I’ve ever been treated. It was a horrible start to what was meant to be a beautiful weekend trip away for a special occasion. This is the worse experience I’ve ever had at a motel! It was extremely upsetting. These people have no idea how to run a motel, they are rude, unclean, unprofessional and inexperienced (Just read the other reviews!) Please do yourself a favor, save your money and drive straight past!! The pictures are probably what it looked like when it was up and running. It now looks like a ran down, dirty filthy dump. Also the water is not fit for human consumption so I don't know what you're showering in or brushing your teeth with.
