Nice quiet place to stay right on the lake, rooms are slightly out dated but clean and tidy. Staff are super friendly and welcoming.

Amazing lake views with waterbirds and sunsets.

With continuation of the upgrading of facilities it should be great again in the future. Basic amenities even in our premium room. Breakfast in cafe is not till 8:30am does not cater for early travellers. Cafe at lunch, but no longer functioning for dinner. So sad to see what could be an amazing place, no longer so, except for the view!

Good location and great views.

Pros: Just out of the central town area and expansive views.
Cons: Rooms could do with a decor upgrade but overall are very comfortable.
Location: Right on the lake and an easy walk to the central town amenities.
Wonderful location with excellent views of the lake. Decor is a little aged but overall comfort is ok.

Spectacular Location, Warm & Friendly Hosts

Pros: The view. The food. The warm welcome.
Location: Brilliant location, right on the lake. The magnificent Coorong is right on the doorstep, and Adelaide is not much more than an hour away.
This is one of the most superbly located motels you will ever find, located right on the edge of Lake Albert, with the water lapping on the shore no more than 5 metres from your room. Watch the sun go down over the lake, wake to a magnificent view in the morning. The motel is under new management, and the new owners are enthusiastic people who are undertaking big improvements to the place. The food at the adjoining cafe (owned and run by the motel owners) is well up to the standards you would expect, and is very cheap. The owners are such nice people, welcoming and friendly. Please ignore the negative reviews of this place on the Internet. Those reviews pertain to the time when the motel had different owners, and they do not reflect the way the place is being run now. The rooms, the food, the ambience, the service - all are much better than they way the are portrayed in these out-dated reviews. If you want a reasonably priced motel in a great location, with good, cafe-quality food and a nice, clean, well-cared-for vice about it, look no further.
