Quite a nice, modern motor inn. Clean, comfortable and only minutes to centre of town further up the street. We had an upstairs room which provided a nice breeze from opened windows (yes, there is an air-conditioner). The room was quite spacious and bed very comfortable for a good night's rest. For $30 more we ordered a hot breakfast for...

We have been staying at the Arkana Motor Inn for years on visits to Mt. Gambier. It has changed hands twice in this time, but we find the quality of service only improves.We have tried other Motels, but Arhana certainly the most friendly

In need of a quiet place for a couple of nights Arkana hit the spot. The rooms aren't large, but sufficiently spacious, clean, comfortable and warm. A comfortable sitting chair was a great addition not found in many motel rooms, although that only works if traveling alone. And they cook a great poached egg for breakfast. Wi-fi was so slow...

The room at Arkana Motor Inn was lovely and spacious. The layout was different to other rooms we've had in that the sink was outside the bathroom and connected the whole counter to the bar fridge/tea making area. The rest of the room was spacious and very clean. The beds were comfortable and the motel was well insulated so that...
