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.

I was surprised that it was possible to get a hotel room anywhere in Australia for less than $100. The beds were relatively new as was the fridge, toaster, kettle, aircon, tv and blinds. Some cutlery and crockery was provided which was handy. Original bathroom but a good layout with ample counter space and good hot water. The room and bedding was clean. Only issue was probably the lack of a fan/ventilation in the bathroom, which meant some mould on the walls. Some of the furniture was old and worn, but still practical.

25/12/23 what a *******hole. The carpet was sticky so wore thongs everywhere. There was a pair of used socks under the bed. There was genital hair outside the shower. The hot water was cold. The place is absolutely atrocious and I honestly walked out of the place feeling dirtier than I arrived after driving 6 hours. Pigs live better.

Convenient booking and confirmation with Booking.com. Good location, room was comfortable, free WiFi and on-site parking. Enjoyed our stay overall, with just a couple of minor issues. Housekeeping staff knocked on door at 9.30am one morning, we asked for her to come back, there was a language barrier so we got clean towels that day, no other service. There was an overseas transaction fee on my credit card for payment. Pool is closed.

Look, for $99 what do you expect. It's not the Ritz! Room was neat and clean bathroom was tidy. Air conditioning was working. Check in was easy and room. Easy to find. The only reason I'm not giving it a 5 star, coffee cups were dirty so had to wash before use. Other than that. It was comfortable and warm.

Some good points - location was good, it was clean, good amount of parking. But some bad points too. In desperate need of work and a freshen up. The double bed mattress was broken and super uncomfortable. Needing new blinds, and decor. There was not enough toilet paper New owners have recently taken over so hopefully some works completed soon.

Our hosts were very accommodating and contactable. Rooms very neat, tidy and clean. We stayed in a family room with 1 x Queen and 1 x Single. Heating, electric blankets provided, and great pub with cheap bar meals right around the corner by walking distance.

Extremely disappointed with our stay. On arrival the chairs outside our room where filthy and full of bird poo. So we therefore couldn't use them. Our room was dirty on arrival, the bathroom was disgusting. Marks on the wall, it definitely hadn't been cleaned properly. We stayed 4 nights and during this time our tea/coffee cups and other cutlery that we used were not cleaned. I am happy to clean it myself, but no washing liquid was provided. No cleaning service was provided other than changing of bins/towels and replacing the tea/coffee. Beds weren't even made! No extra pillows in the room either. During our stay a staff member was outside our room cutting a bush and smoking, which we could smell in our room. Extremely unprofessional! Only positive was the bed was comfortable. Mount Gambier is a beautiful place with many hotel options, I would recommend you stay elsewhere and avoid this filthy place!

We have stayed a few times now and can not fault anything. Room a great size and bed was excellent. Kitchenette with everything you need and even supplied with dishwashing detergent. Bathroom was very modern and very clean. Reception staff so friendly and helpful when I needed to reduce our stay from 6 nights to 5. Won't stay anywhere else when we head back to MG to see our family.

We went here because it advertised laundry facilities but after booking and paying they told us the washing machine was broken 😢 This is an older motel but the price reflects this. The beds were comfortable and there were nice thick bath towels. OK accommodation for one night.

You get what you pay for and only what you pay for! Loud neighbours partied on until late . Could hear everything in the room next door. 3 guests staying but only one face washer and products for one. Stayed 2 nights and our room not serviced in between. Someone had left their milk in fridge and still in there so fridge not checked. Blind didn’t keep light out so very early wake up. Spare blankets very stained and musty. Smoking allowed on balcony but neighbours tin wasn’t emptied of butts so it stunk as you walked past to our door.
