Perhaps I'll start with the negatives; The room was quite large however that meant the small TV was 'lost' in the space. The Queen bed was starting to develop a roll to the centre. The reading lamp on the double bed was only operated on one side so both were either on or off, no individual reading The reading lamp...

The room was large enough but the bathroom dated, shower tiny and difficult to get in and out as the door opened the wrong way in the shower room. For one night not a problem but would be annoying if it was a week. The pool looked like it needed some attention so didn't use.

We spent New Years Eve at this restaurant at Motel Goolwa after lucking in on a table for 8 at the very last minute. The atmosphere was a lot of fun with a band organised and the owners/staff were really friendly lovely people. Despite an obviously busy night the service was excellent and food beautifully prepared particularly the calamari. Only...

Staff are very friendly. No issue with wifi. Decent sized room. Highlight was having dinner at the hotel's restaurant. There was a great ambiance about it and the food was sensational. Service was also very good. Highly recommend.

It all started well with a friendly lady at check in. Free wifi was good if/when you can get on. Got to the unit and the smell of paint was overwhelming. We thought this would not be too bad if we left the door and window open until bed time - wrong. We closed the door to sleep and the...

Very friendly and helpful staff. Comfortable room and a well appointed venue close to cafes, shops and other local attractions. My stay was on a Sunday and fortunately the local markets, which were worth a visit, were being held down near the railway station. I also availed myself of a Steam Train trip to and from nearby Victor Harbour. Somewhat...

Sad to see Murphys pub is no longer open and its replacement 'Jacks' is only open at the weekend. As for the rooms. Big comfy space. Aircon being upgraded while we are here. Beds very soft. Whole decor needs up grading. Pool not clean or open. New owners. Wish them all the best. Sure they are sat on a gold...

Our second visit within the first 3 months of new owners taking over is guaranteed not to be our last! The rooms were clean, comfortable & reasonably priced. The restaurant looked so much nicer than first visit & we were disappointed not to enjoy the Re-opening of it a few days later with the new chef & menu. These ladies...
