Stayed in the queen room.The rooms though old was clean and found all the facilities good and usable. Front desk manager was helpful and guided us about the attractions and things to do nearby. Would have no issues in staying here again.

It is located very close to the center of the city and easy to find. The room is a bit small for three persons. The bathroom is also very small. However, the common kitchen is clean and well equipped for guests to cook and dine in the kitchen table. The surrounding is quiet that you could have a good rest....

Friendly and trust worthy staff. Helped us late at night when we locked ourselves out. Also called after we departed because we left our jewelry behind. Clean rooms and affordable price. Would recommend a stay there.

We had stayed in the queen deluxe suite. The hosts were very accommodating, friendly and helpful, supplying us with maps and lining out places to visit. The room itself was very neat and tidy. I have paid a lot more to stay in hotels with less than ordinary standards . The property itself is very central to the town. We...

My friend and I decided to visit Mount Gambier for a little getaway. Being on a budget we had to find a place to stay that was relatively cheap in price. We found a room with a queen plus a single bed for $82 a night. For that price we weren't sure what to expect but thought we would book...

I stayed at the Blue Lake Motel on 20/01/2017. Arrived and was greeted nicely even though it was before normal check in time. I was still getting over Jet Lag and was helped with local sights and sounds of the area, as well as, a recommendation for breakfast. Thank you for making my stay enjoyable,

At $80 a night, there's really nothing much to expect. The rooms are basic and average and great if you're just stopping overnight on your great ocean road journey. The rooms are as basic as you can get. There's a communal kitchen for guests to use if they wanted to do some cooking. The front desk manager, Shane was really...

I've been staying in mt gambier for work for a few years and have recently stayed at the Blue Lakes motel on my last visit. I was very pleased with the accomodation. Clean rooms, comfortable bed, fridge and microwave in room with complimentary wifi. I was impressed there is access to a shared kitchen if you would like to cook...

Room was clean, serviced daily and staff were friendly. Motel is away from town centre, not far from Umpherston sinkhole. Nice pub down the road recommended by motel staff or owner: a flash of our room key got us discounted meals and drinks. Motel is a nice place to rest one's head on the way through the southeast. As well,...

This was our first stop on our trip around South Aus. The place was clean and presented ok. Bed was better than we were expecting. For a quick overnight stay this would be great. It was quiet too, which is important to me.
