        The Lakes Resort is well worth a stay whilst in Mount Gambier. It is a little tricky to find but definitely worth the effort. The view is amazing. It is a quiet location and so close to the famous Lakes on the edge of town. The walks are beautiful. The restaurant has to be one of the best in Mount Gambier. The owner of the Resort was extremely helpful with information on what to see and do. The spa unit was beautiful and the spa was huge. All necessities were there for a short stay. Cosy and comfortable. Thanks so much.

        Pros - very friendly staff. Very close to the blue lake. Cons - I booked the hotel via Agoda as it indicated No WiFi in room as that is my preference. We checked in and the wifi antennaes for the whole resort was on our room's roof! I believe this should not be this low and definitely not in close proximity to any rooms. I have worked with wifi devices for 2 decades.. unfortunately. But overall - the hotel staff and location is excellent

        Nice above average motel”

        Naming it a resort is perhaps over egging a little, The old title Grandview perhaps suited it better. It is a nice motel with friendly staff, and well run. It could do with more signage directing people to the correct rooms etc, it is in a great location, close attractive walking tracks around Mt. Gambier's tourist attractions. The restaurant wasn't open so i can't comment on the food.

        We had specifically picked this hotel for the pool and spa. On arrival we were told the spa was broken. Expressed disappointment and advised that we had picked this hotel to use the facilities. Only an apology - no compensation.. $140.00 for one night I believe is a lot of money if you do not get what you paid for. Rooms have a nice view,But that is where it ends. Very dated and run down. The pool was barely heated... Unfortunately this is far from a resort.

        Huge room, very quiet & close to the BLue Lake

        Ok. First impressions were good but then we realised there was so much wasted space. There was plenty of room for a nicer lounge or two confortable chairs instead of the two seater lounge squashed into the corner. The was only a very small table so nowhere to sit and eat takeaway food. The TV was not adjustable & hard to watch from the lounge way across the room. The spa took over an hour to fill and the hot water service woke us throughout the night with its reheating. I dont think there was room service or if there was, it wasn't offered to us and when we asked for suggestions the receptionist did not even suggest the restaurant on the premises. Overall we were a bit disappointed with our experience probably because this was the most expensive place we stayed during our holiday and we were expecting something special.
