Red Carpet Motel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed overnight at The Red Carpet Motel. Clean room and small but serviceable bathroom, fridge, microwave, toaster and tea/coffee making facilities. Crockery stored in the microwave. TV with good reception, reverse cycle air conditioner that worked well. This is a motel so all the room doors are external, we parked right in front of the room. Only a few hundred metres to Woolworths and less distance to the local pub. We slept well despite noise from other guests, the bed was comfortable. Water pressure in the shower was very low.

Good motel for the tariff we paid. Room we stayed in was clean, however the unit needs a bit of TLC, comfortable beds. Well situated and within walking distance to CBD, Cave Gardens and Umpherston Sinkhole, 8 minutes drive to Engelbrecht Cave and10 minutes drive to the Blue Lake.

This motel is excellent value for the price with clean rooms and it's quiet. I stay often in Mt Gambier and for the price I think this is the best value option in town. Check in always easy and quick. If your expectations are aligned to the price then you will be pleased with the red carpet motel.

Room had been recently renovated and was quite comfortable. The motel is well situated with respect to the CBD and most shops including restaurants and supermarkets. The parking area has dual access. One entry is from highway one the other is from Commercial street; the main city street. Mt Gambier is not a large city but there is a lot to see. Limestone grottoes are within walking distance and access to some of the region's highlights. Well worth a visit.

Travelling through from Melbourne to Adelaide. Enjoyed the nights stay, staff were very helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and tidy. Good location,was located reasonably close to restaurants and shops.

I booked this motel online, and it raved about its Restaurant open 7 days a week etc... Got there, and you cant even get a muesli bar..!! very disappointing... I hate false advertising to lure you in... NEVER staying there again..

Centrally located this motel was easily accessed with plenty of parking. Facilities were good - even a pool - and the rooms were clean and the beds very comfortable. Great budget option in the middle of town.

On our way from the Great Ocean Road to Kangaroo Island, we stayed one night in March. Old motel but clean. Good shower but water did not drain well. Nearby the hotel recommended to visit through sinkhole / cenote . Very interesting. Good value for the price we paid.

Our room was downstairs which was easily accessible for my husband who is disabled. Good parking and there was little or no noise from trucks and cars The pool setting is pleasant and again easily accessible but secure for children. Bed was comfortable and everything clean and tidy.

Quick and friendly check in.We booked three of the mid range upgraded rooms as we were their with international visitors. Comfortable bed, new TV with good reception, shower had good water pressure and the hot water arrived quickly. Towels of reasonable quality. Breakfast is available but not well advertised. It's continental, toast juice yogurt cereal and tea / coffee. Only $5 (Bargain!) Did the job! Approx 400 metres to the pub which serves affordable meals and then after dinner a 15 minute walk to the sink hole to watch the possums and enjoy the gardens. Would definitely stay here again when we return to Mount Gambier.
