We've stayed for one night in one of the apartments. We were very pleased, find it very clean, spacious, easy to get there, nice welcome feeling. The hotel has a pool and spa, so it is entertaining for families with kids.

We only had one night in Mount Gambia on our way to Melbourne. The location was excellent and the room was a very good size. Parking was right outsid the door and the manager was very helpful with where we could eat close by.

Our apartment was really great clean and very conformable .wifi was really good. Close to town and good pubs to eat at. We had the front terrace apartment. The pool was warm enough to swim in as it was heated. Check in is fast and efficient. We would stay here again when we return to the area.

A stop over in Mount Gambier and the Arkana is a super option. Friendly helpful manager and an easy check in, parking directly outside the room which was large and well appointed, if not a little dated. Comfortable bed, large and specious bathroom as well as good facilities in the small kitchen. Walking distance to the town centre, this was...

We stayed at the Arkana on our recent family visit to Mt Gambier. Our room was spacious and clean, with a bar fridge and enough cutlery and crockery to enable us to have our breakfast in our room. The motel is an easy walk to the supermarket. Our son enjoyed the heated indoor swimming pool. We found it an excellent...
