Quality Inn Presidential

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The motel rooms were very spacious, clean with a reasonable sized table & a decent couch so you didn't have to watch tv in bed. The bed was quite comfortable with spare blankets & pillows. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. The restaurant was good quality at the upper medium price range but to compensate the food quantity was impressive and tasty (the lamb shanks are to die for!). No free WiFi available. They could do with some exterior lighting around the carpark and walkways (if it existed, it didn't appear to be working).

After resigning yourself that Buisness breakfast is scrambled eggs and crap coffee to my surprise "Eggs Benedict" perfect on all levels eggs where perfect and the bacon was amazing ... Very very impressed ... Coffee was still average ... To serve such a good breakfast to the large number attending was very good

Inconsistency in meal service. Means there is no notice of when one can access meals in the restaurant or breakfast room, leaving customers to look for a place to eat: No Wifi as advertised as it does not work in the rooms, old outdated rooms, and lack of cleanliness all prove to mean one has an uncomfortable stay. Bedding had not been changed in over 10 days could be 15. Toilet was blocked.

rooms are excellent ,good size bathroom with shower cubical & seperate bath plenty of room for kids & elderly friendly linen pristine white beds very comfortable looks old but very good value worth the money

Whilst the blurb on the front of the Menu indicates that good food takes time to prepare, waiting well over an hour without being offered some pre dinner nibbles isn't ok these days! Some fresh bread and oil would have sufficed as well as providing a more hospitable atmosphere. I had chicken, brie, and rosemary with fresh broccoli, whole baby carrots and mash. This delicious dish was well presented. My partner had the lamb curry, equally well presented. The local house Shiraz is very quaffable.

We spent two nights here whilst attending the Generations In Jazz Event. It was about all that was left in Mount Gambier and I was apprehensive as many of the reviews below are poor. On arrival the receptionists were smiling and helpful (although it would be nice to have been given wifi codes at check in rather than have to trail back for them later). We had room 55 and it was much as described by others - very dated but large and clean. The bed itself turned out to be comfortable and the shower was excellent despite looking like a throw back to the sixties. The biggest problem was the cold. The room was freezing on entry and the old blow heater which we turned on struggled to warm it. We kept outside coats on until we left for town. On our second day we tried to leave the heater going but it was switched off by staff and so again we retuned to a freezing cold room - not attractive. The room was right on the main road and the traffic noise was loud. We only had one breakfast as it was an expensive low point. The continental choices were very poor. Nothing fresh - everything out of a tin. Not a piece of fresh fruit in sight. I had higher hopes from the eggs benedict but when it arrived it was covered in a horrible mayonnaise-like gloop that was nothing like a hollandaise sauce. It rendered the whole lot inedible. Better to have stuck with safer choices. Staff were very pleasant however. So good points and bad but we would try somewhere else next time.

i was a tad anxious making a booking however I am glad i did. I am not sure where the people who wrote the negative reviews stayed however my experience was the opposite. spacious , clean room. smiley faces at reception . good value and plenty of room i reckon i have said that before.. next time im in the mount will stay here again

We have stayed here previously and found them to be good. The bed was beautiful like lying in a cloud, the room was large. We ordered room service which was also fantastic. We had a superior king room.

We had been booked into this place sight unseen as part of our drive on the Great Ocean Road, and as it was our first stop on the way we were quite tired but also quite excited. What a disappointment. It's not really an hotel, more a motel, and one which clearly hadn't had any time, effort or money spent on it since the 1970s - think drab, tired beige paintwork and smoked glass. Our room was absolutely, laughably vast, like a conference room; windows all along one side but right next to the road where the lorries thundered by all night. Here are just a few of the problems with the room: cigarette burns on the washbasin, a splintered hole on the back of the bathroom door where the hook had clearly been ripped off, a bottle opener screwed to the washbasin unit (!), a flimsy plastic bin which flipped over when you put your foot on the pedal, a huge, stained jacuzzi bath, shower head which clearly hadn't be descaled in years, horrible nylon carpet, old, stained and chipped table, bedside clock which didn't work, rules and regulations stuck up everywhere ... Are you getting the flavour? And in the morning we weren't sure whether breakfast had been included in our booking so I went to reception to check; it wasn't, and by the time I got back to the breakfast room my husband had poured us two cups of tea for which the hotel had the barefaced cheek to charge us 5 dollars for! Avoid this hotel at all costs.

We stayed one night only (thankfully) as part of our self drive along the Great Ocean Road. An old style motel which looks tired and dated. The receptionist was very friendly but still under training. We arrived on a Saturday but the restaurant was closed for the night so we had to find somewhere else to eat and as the motel is not centrally located there was nothing in walking distance and we had to use the car. The room was very large but dark and dingy. Considering the size of the room the bed was only a standard double which seemed a bit bizarre. There was free WIFI and tea/coffee making facilities but take care re the chocolate/biscuits by the kettle which look free but which we were charged for. The poor weather didn't help but not a place we will ever return to.
