Quality Inn Presidential

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This was my first visit to Mount Gambier. I chose this hotel based on the recommendation of one of my customers. My overall first impression was that it looked a bit tired for a place that has a four star rating. However the room was specious and all the gadgets where working. It was a little disappointing having to be told on arrival that there would be no dinner at the hotel that evening as the staff were attending some sort of function. Perhaps this was a blessing as I ended up going to the Barn just 10km outside town which was fabulous. All in all satisfactory.

We booked this place online for a one night stay while traveling from Adelaide to Melbourne in all my years traveling both in Australia and overseas this would have to be the worst place I’ve stayed the lady on the reception desk was rude and nasty even though the room was paid for in full before arriving she still insisted on swiping my credit card the room was dated and old looking and quite noisy the bathroom had a musty smell the breakfast the next morning was awful over cooked eggs under cooked toast upon checking out I made mention of these issues only to be told if you don’t like it don’t stay here very very poor customer service from a very poorly maintained and run old and dated motel only interested in profits not customer satisfaction I personally wouldn’t recommend this place to my worst enemy do yourself a favour avoid this place as there’s many more motels in town

We spent one night here while traveling from Kangaroo Island. The location is good, the room was spacious and the car could be parked in front of the room. So that’s all we needed. It’s rather an old hotel but they upgraded the rooms so it was a beautiful stay for us.

Located on the main highway, this hotel is well situated for the local town. Our room had clearly been recently refurbished but possible there was work still to do such as putting a mirror in the bathroom. Despite advertising free internet, it was not available. The response when I reported this was 'I will let the manager know'. I asked about receiving some form of financial compensation, but that went absolutely nowhere. I urgently needed to get on line and not being able to do so was extremely inconvenient especially with a 10.5 hour time difference with the UK. My advise to fellow travellers is if you are considering this hotel and need the internet, check it is actually available.

Thank you the room was very nice and clean. The room was spacious and the ensuite was lager with and bath.. Great to have a big screen TV but poorly placed for viewing from the bed. Sorry I didn't get a chance to use the restaurant, maybe next time as I would stay there again.

Had seen several reviews stating that it is quiet which is what prompted me to book here. Perhaps in the rear rooms furthest from the highway I am sure it is, but the room I had the window was perhaps 5m from the road. So about 430 I am woken up by the traffic. The room itself was old but spacious and clean. Bathroom had shower and bath which would appeal to many.

It's true that rooms in this motel are looking a little tired but they're spacious and, over several stays, ours were always clean. Rooms at the rear or in the quadrangle area are quiet and the staff are courteous. If you're looking for a solid night's sleep, don't mind a 70's (or maybe 80's) bathroom (walk-in shower is fine) and don't require 4* features then try Quality Inn. We'll be happy to stay a fourth time.

Very good basic hotel with enormous rooms containing arm chairs air conditioning and a very large ensuite with separate walk in shower and a bath. Food was very good. Breakfast choice limited but good. Friendly welcoming staff.

We overnighted here after travelling from Adelaide. The reception staff are friendly and helpful. The room we were assigned was right near the heated pool/spa/sauna, which would have been awesome if we had remembered our swimming gear. Had a quick look and it all seemed very clean. Our Room itself was large, easily could have taken a second queen/king sized bed with plenty of room left over. The bath room is clean and looks well maintained. The beds were comfy, and the linen clean. My Family and i enjoyed our stay there, we didnt make use of the restaurant, as we elected to eat out. Its a nice easy place for a quick stay!!! We will use it again in the future.

I stayed here for work for two nights. The room was a little dated but was spacious, the bed comfortable, the shower was good as was the spa in my room. It was quiet and had good work space. The restaurant was good and reasonably priced.
