Pretty old, overpriced and well not good...

Quite old decor and not particularly a clean room well the bathroom wasn't. Mould. And there was only one face wash however 3 people checked in. The picture on the website showed much nicer and more stylish rooms however his must have been the oldest part cause not great. For mount gambier there were no electric blankets on bed either. There was a wedding on the night we were there and the reception was open much later however we rang the bell at desk and waited around 10 mins for someone to come and my father had to go into the wedding across the dance floor in non wedding clothes haha and ask for someone to come help us. Bit poor. Plus the price of the room completely over priced it was $170 originally but I only paid half cause of my member dollars. But not good.

not so bad

place is ok, rooms are old but fairly clean,beds not very soft. The only thing was the disinterested staff at reception. I felt like a bother.

Clean, comfortable and good value

Hotel is on the main road through town with easy access parking. It has two floors but, for those with limited mobility, there is a lift. Our room was spacious and comfortable and the staff were helpful and friendly. Room amenities included air-conditioning, a flat screen TV (with good reception), DVD player, FREE high speed wifi, fully stocked (reasonably priced) mini bar, tea and coffee making facilities, extra pillows, iron and ironing board. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom consists of a shower over a deep bath with grab rail. I would have loved to try the bath for a long soak if we'd had time. There are numerous eateries in town but if you prefer the onsite dining room it offers dinner and either a continental or full breakfast. We opted for the full breakfast which was worth it. We'd recommend this hotel and will stay again.

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

The Blue Lake is only blue between October and March however, during those months it's a don't miss attraction. Only a five minute drive from the CBD.

Clean and comfortable. Restaurant

Clean and comfortable. Restaurant food was pretty good. There was some noise from the highway that might bother some, but we had a good night's rest.
