The main feature of this hotel for us was the indoor pool and the BBQ. The BBQ was reasonable quality and the indoor pool was very welcome on a cool and rainy February day. The room itself was clean, but dated. The shower pressure was below average and the temperature changed constantly. Why these places don't invest in thermostatically controlled...

I know I checked average in all categories and then put very good for overall rating. Sum was better than all of the parts. Our unit looked like it used to be a one bedroom apt. Little dated but good amount of space. Even had outdoor cooking area. Cute clerk too.

Great staff! Very efficient and welcoming. Room was very clean, well presented, easy access and quiet. Definitely value for money for our stopover from Adelaide to Melbourne via the Great Ocean Road. Worth seeing the Blue Lake when it's bright blue!

We checked into the Arkana after a sudden cancellation of other accommodation. We couldn't have been happier! We were in a two-roomed apartment, with a full kitchen, and gloriously comfortable beds. The management couldn't have been more helpful and we will definitely use the Arkana again. Highly recommended.

My wife and 7yo daughter stayed here for 2 nights in late Janaury. The 2 bedroom apartment was perfect for us and so much better than the usual open room layout of a standard motel. The furnishings, kitchen and unit was just a little dated, but this was not a problem. The place was very clean, all the basics needed...

We stopped one night in mount Gambier and only required a room with simple facilities, eg. bed, shower, breakfast making appliances. We comfortably slept in a well set out area, all 5 of us. A lot of places don't accommodate for more than 2 adults and 2 kids so we were pleased. Our children enjoyed the pool, and being undercover...
