Recently renovated in clean & bright colours. Very quiet despite being just off the main road. Great place to stay after a long drive to Mt Gambier.

The motel was nicely furnished with the lovely rockers in the room. Bed was super comfy and Carolyn was very nice with check in and pleasant to talk to. Would recommend this motel to anyone travelling through Tailem Bend and we will stay there if in the area again.
