Stayed here overnight on a road trip from Melbourne to Adelaide. So nice to arrive to a clean room. Kettle (with tea/coffee/milk) and microwave provided and a great DVD library. The owners were really friendly ad helpful. Would definitely recommend.

Lake Albert Motel is one of very few accommodations in Meningie. It was clean and the staff were friendly. The room we stayed in was a bit dark but the beds were comfortable and we had a good night's sleep. Its age shows and a refurbishing might not be a bad idea. We were given good advise regarding restaurants nearby...

We didn't have a place for the night so it was a last minute reservation. The owner was sweet and informative. A very very comfortable bed and pillows..... wish we could have slept in late and enjoyed the coffee and biscuits longer that were in the room! Very pleased!

Lake Albert Motel is a small hotel but clean and comfortable with parking space right in front of our room. Beyond the road in front of the hotel is the lake and it has...

About what you would expect of a country town motel, rooms are dated but clean and the owners very helpful when the power went out for 6 hours during the SA storms by providing candles and torches. The motel filled up that night due to travel restrictions but we didn't have any problems with noise or behaviour at all.
