The hotel is well situated, has easy parking, and the restaurant is high quality. The room was clearly in the process of a renovation, meaning a wall was unpainted and the bathroom door didn't close. For the price, I doubt there would be any better accommodation in Mt Gambier.

We found The Commodore to be perfect for our needs in travelling through (we had a two night stay). One small point of confusion is we had a room with kitchenette so we could cater for ourselves, however in the Information Book for the room, it stated under no circumstances was food to be cooked! However all was well as we had our normal self-cooked meals and no problems with staff.

3/5 Okay

I liked the room and the spa. Will definitely come back. Breakfast wasn't what I expected and a bit to expensive when I had paid for 2 breakfast for both days and got charged extra for only being one person there. And you meals are way to expensive so decided not to eat there.

Right in the middle of town where I needed it, stayed for 3 nights, room was serviced once if I remember right, shower water temp cant be controlled. Little disappointed in the road noise from the old part of the motel. Request a room in the new section away from the road and your stay will be much quieter

Great king room well appointed very clean and spacious bed was amazingly comfortable Only comment would be that the glass door leading into the bathroom does not control light into the bedroom - needs a solid door folks.
