“Avoid this motel unless you can be guaranteed a renovated room.”
Reviewed 28 January 2011

After researching photos of a number motels in Mt Gambier we chose The Commodore on the Park because it looked modern and clean. However when we got there we were given one of their old horrible rooms close to the highway and round about. We were travelling with a young child and had to pay extra for a so called single bed which was really a couch, and the queen bed we had was more like a double. The blinds did not block out light entirely so we had problems getting our child to sleep in a room with so much light. Since this roomed looked nothing like the photos posted on the Internet, I rang reception to check if we got the wrong room, the answer was (with a chuckle in his voice) that not all rooms have been renovated as shown on the photos. This is really false advertising and leads to major disappointment for the customer. So only stay here if you can be assured of one of the renovated rooms otherwise avoid staying here.

I traveled with a large group of colleagues and we bedded down for one night in this charming town (Mt. Gambier) however I would not recommend staying here for longer than a night -- especially if you have a room that has one of the older TV's and is close to the highway. Despite being such a tiny burg, there's a lot of traffic that comes around the roundabout right where the Commodore is located and it makes for a rough night. Fortunately I was able to mask the noise with the airconditioner, but that's not always possible in the middle of winter! Lovely surroundings and charming town.

First stayed in a standard room which was close to the roundabout. Trucks accelerate out of the roundabout all night so sleep is hard to come by if u need some silence. We moved to another room and was charged extra for the new room. The prices rise according to the distance from the roundabout. Next time we will stay a bit further away from the roundabout and this hotel

Friendly, helpful and welcoming staff. Rooms are very comfortable, super clean and have all the conveniences. The restaurant is great for dinner or breakfast. The reception area has a nice ambience to it. I've stayed on two occasions recently - both have provided the same quality of experience which, in my book, is a sign of a well run business.

Reviewed 23 December 2009

Lovely room with king bed and modern furniture/equipment. Nice Mini kitchen and the whole room and bathroom was spacious and clean. There is a coin operated laundry on site and the rooms have an iron/board + a mini bar as part of the equipment. We booked one night and decided to have a rest so booked another two nights.(The Town is pleasant and there is a fair bit to see) eating is a problem unless you like Hungry Jacks but the Commodor has a nice Restaurant with a decent menu but book early as it seems to fill up with locals out for a celebration meal.
