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.

Great place, clean and well appointed rooms, the restaurant was closed unfortunately but room service was available. This place is let down somewhat by the noise, the walls offer no respite from the neighbours and the truck traffic, is not easy from early morning, but, it’s convenient, clean and ok

Stayed a night in room 117 while in Mt Gambier. Large room and nicely renovated and very comfortable and quiet. Staff were very helpful. The breakfast was basic but nice, just what's needed. Thank you for a wonderful stay. 100% recommend staying.

The room with a King Size bed was clean and spacious. Although being near to a main road, there was little noise. The bedding and pillows were fantastic. Only limited continental breakfast option was available but was fine.

The room was clean the AC worked well. I do like the reminder to shut off lights and the AC upon leaving. Bed was comfortable and the parking at the door. Kettle under the cupboard where the microwave was. Desk staff was friendly and professional.

Un clean bathroom grime around shower and what i assume to be soap on the hand basin, dusty couch. Very uncomfortable pillows and mattress. Dont have anything good to say really. Feel like your walking around in an old hospital in Hall ways, out of date decor Wouldnt recommend Wont return.

As a last minute detour we stayed in Mt.Gambier and were lucky to find this hidden gem. As a frequent traveller in Australia and internationally I have stayed at many places, with 5 stars! I would highly recommend this beautiful boutique motel, newly renovated and well appointed. The service was incredible, from checkin, restaurant recommendations, assistance with parking our trailer, local area knowledge. Thank you Jayden and David for making us feel so welcome. I only wish we had stayed longer and could have enjoyed a swim and the restaurant!

We booked this motel for a 3 night stay, it was a beautiful room for such a modest price. The shower was amazing and spacious, the bed was extremely comfortable. They made sure that our requests were met (needed a spare power point beside particular side of bed for medical equipment). When we had a family emergency and had to cut our trip short, the motel staff were absolutely wonderful and understanding. Highly recommend this motel and we will be returning to stay here again. Great location, on the main street but not too close to all the hustle and bustle.
