Very pleasant, help with where to eat, (which was walking distance and great steak) and the next part of our trip. Short trip to town centre, nice quiet location. Price was great for a very comfortable stay,

This is was a lovely motel to stay at, rooms were very nice, clean and a very good size, it was close to the main street and was nice and quite. Staff were great easy to get on with, especially as we had a early check in and very helpful with info about Mount Gambier. Indoor pool was excellent.

Nice clean room, and surprisingly it was very spacious! Although it was a bit noisy from the upstairs rooms. Breakfast was delivered on-time and was very nice. A good central location within walking distance to main shopping precinct. Check in and check out was quick and easy. Great value for the price.

We enjoyed our stay in one of the Terrace Apartments which was King-size Kitchenette. The location of Arkana was ideal to access the tourist attractions; room cosy on a winter's night. Only negative was the lack of kitchen sink to wash dishes and cutlery. We spent 2 nights in Mount Gambier and felt comfortable to return to our apartment at...

Check in was quick and even upgraded. Great room with kitchenette and quite location, close to main shopping centre and easy to find off main road. Be aware if travelling with elderly may want to ask for a downstairs room.
