My family of four stayed for two nights, we loved it. The hotel was clean and neat, the staff were friendly and welcoming. The hotel is marketed as a family friendly, comfortable place to stay....and I think they hit the nail on the head. Wifi was sensational...and seemingly unlimited. Kids loved the pool. Location was spot on. Very happy with...

The room was excellent. It was spacious and well set out. It was secure as you needed your room key card to get into rear doors. The breakfast was good. The internet was not accessible on the computer in the lobby for guests. This was not rectified during my stay, despite the manager saying a technician would look at it...

A one night stopover on our coastal tour from Melbourne to Adelaide so not the first Best Western we've stayed in along the way. As stated in previous reviews it is undergoing refurbishment and this does appear to be long overdue as the rooms are very dated and this isn't reflected in the price, ours was a good size room...

The motel's undergoing a major refurbishment, so normal service may not be quite ... normal. Nonetheless, our room (awaiting refurbishment) was clean, comfortable, and provided an excellent shower - water pressure in Mount Gambier is high. Free wifi was secured (many places have totally unsecured connections, so you can't, or shouldn't, access anything that might contain private information) - well...

Went there for a fiction and the front receptionist was rude!!!!!! Very rude. People including myself arrived 10-15 minutes early and she was just rude to all of us and it was like she was angry we arrived early. For someone that works at the front counter I think they need to be friendly and welcoming. Very rude and won't...
