We enjoyed our stay and found the hotel to be very accomodating and comfortable. The host was gracious and helpful. The bed was very comfy and the room was spacious. The bathroom was large and very accomodating. The hotel was near restaurants.

We stayed over the long weekend recently and the hotel was perfect for our needs. 1 adult and 1 child (11 years old). The room was spacious, quiet and clean. It's close to a Woolworths and has a pub nearby that does very nice meals in a family friendly environment. It was a great base to see the area. We...

We went to Mount Gambier for a long weekend family holiday and stayed here for 2 nights in the 2 bedroom terrace apartment. The unit was clean and tidy and the check in process was quick and easy. Unit was well equipped with kitchen and appliances. Unfortunately though the sound insulation of the place is appalling. We can literally hear...

The room was larger than I expected and was clean and quiet. It is a great location, easy to drive in and out. I was very pleased with the service. I did not use the WiFi, but noticed it was available. Would stay here again.

Check-in was easy. Clean, reasonably quiet, comfortable. Rooms larger than expected. Swimming pool on site but did not use. All you need for an overnight stay. A little walk from the centre of town but would stay here again. Thanks!

We had 5 nights on our Great Ocean Road Trip Plus Mt Gambier, Halls Gap & Ballarat with different accommodation each night. I can say that Arkana Motor Inn delivered very well. Room size and layout were good, the beds were very comfortable and the price was affordable. This was the best of the lot. It's an easy 5 minute...

Nice place to stay, very clean and spacious queen room situated in quiet surrounds. Indoor heated pool and spa was a bonus and very clean. Very close to shops and eateries in the local area. Friendly and helpful staff and great parking facilities.

Generally when I travel with my partner I seek the quietest room possible as she is a light sleeper. This time I forgot and unfortunately she had a shocking nights sleep. She mentioned the issue with traffic noise to Josh the Manager/Owner the next day and he immediately moved us to a totally more satisfactory room. Now this might not...

We were at the Arkana for one night and it was terrific. The gentleman at the front desk was extremely helpful and pleasant. Although the room was basic, it was clean and provided the cutlery and dishes we needed to prepare a small meal. I wouldn't't hesitate to recommend this property door a pleasant stay.
