We did not enjoy our stay of three nights; and consider the establishment to be of a standard inconsistent with our expectations of Best Western. The place looks tired. Unsurprising, because our room was original 1980's. or was it '70's? The hand basin was plastic, as was the toilet seat, but not quality. There was black stuff in the corners...

Nice country motel. It needs s bit of an update as it is looking a bit tired. It is designed for business travelers as the restaurant is closed Friday. Clean and convenient. Breakfast closes a bit early on weekends.

Stopped in for 1 night for work, room was basic however clean. Water pressure in the newly renovated bathroom was like a leaking tap, pillows where expired and thin as paper. Spa was 18 degrees and sauna wasn't working.

Southgate Motel provided us with an older style room which was comfortable and clean. The in house restaurant was enjoyable and well priced. The motel was centrally located and close to the many attractions Mt Gambier offered. The staff were friendly and this proved a good stop over on out trip to the Great Ocean Road.
