The owners were very friendly and accommodating. It is close to everything in the main city area. Nice walking track along the old railway line. The room is old but visually clean and tidy, I think it has been awhile since the whole room has been cleaned thought. Plenty of hot water and the beds are reasonably comfortable.

During our three days trip in Mt Gambier we had two nights stay at this Motel. It was good compact size rooms giving amenities like toaster, hair dryer, toiletries, microwave and few cutlery in the room. This motel is located at heart of Town and you can visit KMart & Foodlands in just 1 minute while Coles, Woolies and Aldi are at walking distance. Loved the hospitality and kind nature of the owner and the front desk members. Definitely will visit back soon. Thanks
