One of the best stays in Mt Gambier”

The place was clean, good amenities and comfortable. The staff at the bar was fun and provided great service, making it fun on a Saturday night. The location was convenient for a traveller with lots of restaurants and cafes nearby. Perfect spot to rest on our road trip from Melbourne to Mt Gambier. Highly recommend it to fellow travellers.

Comfortable mattress ”

Pros- We stayed for two nights in the Studio Spa Suite. Room was nice, quite clean, spa was great, room for 2 people. Lovely white fluffy towels and dressing gowns. Plenty of bathroom products provided. There was a microwave in the kitchenette. The mattress was probably one of the most comfortable that I’ve ever slept on in a motel anywhere, and the bed also has electric blanket, so very cosy. The TV is on the wall in front the bed, easy to watch. The room has a split system so we could adjust temperature accordingly. Staff we encountered at reception and in the restaurant for breakfast, were very friendly and helpful. Cons- Each room has a reserved car parking space allotted, we went out with friends for dinner Saturday night and when we got back at 9:30 our car space was taken, as were all the other car spaces, by people only using the restaurant. We waited around wondering where we should park and luckily someone was leaving and we quickly took that car space. Also it was extremely noisy, people laughing, yelling and carrying on right outside the motel rooms until 1am. No consideration for motel guests. Luckily Sunday night was quiet. Overall we enjoyed our stay.

A great stopping point”

I regularly travel to Mt Gambier for work purposes and I must have stayed in at least half of the $120- $155 a night motels and hotels here, and when the budget allows or they have a special deal on, this is my treat to myself! A night or two at the Commodore - its a motel but just that more luxe, gorgeous bed linen, high quality mattresses and a restaurant with a room service option that is to die for. Highly recommend staying here, its a favourite of mine.

Fantastic Accommodation ”

I cannot fault this place! Checking-in was easy! The staff welcomed me with a smile and was really friendly. The location is excellent - it is close to all important amenities and eateries. We booked the studio deluxe twin. My wife was super impressed with the nursing chair - it made feeding our 3 month old son comfortable and easy for her. For 2 nights, we could have not asked for a better place! We will surely book this again if we are in the Mount again in the future!
