          Cut above most in this type of market”

          clean, comfortable, pleasant helpful staff, range of facilities, convenience of access

          i have to be honest and say that i do not normally expect motels to be of hotel standard, because whilst others may disagree, i see a motel basically as a one night or so stopover on a holiday or business trip, whereas i expect more of a hotel. whilst not plush in the top hotel sense the best western southgate motel could prove satisfactory in either category, particularly with its excellent range of services, good food and adequate parking. it is also well situated for local visiting and access to major routes.

          A nice (but not a great) place for one night”

          Reasonably priced, easy to find and close to the blue lake

          My partner and I stayed at the Best Western Southgate Motel for a night in July, 2013 whilst we were traveling to Melbourne. In short, it was a nice - but not a great - place to stay. I'd stay there again as it was reasonably priced (thanks to Agoda) and the room was comfortable although somewhat aged and, resultantly, tired. The proximity of the hotel to Mt. Gambier's "Blue Lake" was great as it's a great place for a morning walk. The only real 'downer' was noticing (2 days after we'd checked out) that even though the accommodation charge was paid in full via the Agoda website about 2 weeks before we arrived, the goose on reception improperly charged in excess of $100.00 to the Amex card taken as 'security' at the time of checking in - which then necessitated 2 calls by me to have the charge reversed. That was an unnecessary headache.

          Nothing special, but the hotel is clean, ok, conveniently located when travelling through Mt Gambier. I could park my motorcycle immediately outside my room (not covered). Breakfast was mediocre (no cheese/ham)

          The rooms were large and well equiped. Another positive aspect of this motel is that they provide free interenet conection in all rooms. This was very useful for us as we made full use of the internet connection to plan our daily itinary. There are also many food options and supermarkets located within a short distance of the motel.

          As it was cold and wet during our stay, we did not have to get wet going to the restaurant or bar and the location was close to the hub of the city but not on a busy and noisy street. Staff were pleasant and helpful and we were amazed at the large size of our room.
