Stayed one night at this lovely property in a family suite. Room was very spacious and modern and loved the spa bath after a very long day. Wished we had been able to stay longer. Fiona was lovely to deal with at reception and gave us some good recommendations for dinner at the Victoria Hotel along with some complimentarydrink vouchers.

Room Tip: Family suite was fantastic - separate bedroom with twin beds and a king bed in other room.

If there is anything to complain about it would be the instruction sheet for the remote needs bigger print for my failing eye sight. The overall experience was excellent there wasn't anything else I could fault the room was beautifully presented all glassware, crockery and utensils were clean with adequate supplies of coffee, tea, biscuits, soaps and shampoo etc.
Well done to all staff involved with the Strath Motel for providing an exceptional experience. This is the best accommodation available on the Fleureau Peninsula.

A great place to stay it is a modern motel with all the modern facilities and although it took me some time to work out how to use the remote, I did manage to get the television to work although the other functions for air conditioning and god only knows what else will remain a mystery to my technophobic brain.
Would I come back? In a heartbeat.
Was everything perfect? There must have been some imperfections but I couldn't find them, that is of course if I don't mention the one remote does all that I failed to master.
This must be the best accommodation on the Fleureau Peninsula.

Thank you David D for taking time to review your stay at Strath Motel. We are so glad that you enjoyed your time with us and would have no hesitation in revisiting the motel. With the TV Remote Control, it is sometimes difficult adapting to a strange TV/Remote when away from home (I have experienced this in the past during my travels). Our Room Compendiums provide clear instructions and reception is contactable 24 hours a day 7 days a week to handle any little thing that may affect your safety or comfort. We look forward to seeing you again.

Stayed here for one night following a big drive from NSW, we were booked into a place at Victor Harbour the following night, but if we had known of this place before then, we would have stayed here for two nights. The room was modern, spacious and clean, large comfortable bed, and the bathroom was a nice surprise, included a bath and shower. The manager was very helpful and friendly. Even the next morning when we checked out, we were having breakfast at a cafe in town, and noticed him driving down the street. When he saw us, he stopped - "you guys left your pillows in the room!!" He did try to phone me but I didn't have any reception, and he drove around town looking for us! (Our big 4WD and camper did stand out). How is that for service? The only downfall was the neighbourhood rooster waking us up EARLY!!

Well Jenniesue you certainly did enjoy all facets of the Strath Motel experience. From the comfort and cleanliness of our deluxe rooms to the high level of customer service we provide and a wake up call from the neighbourly rooster. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and also had time to dine at and review some of our local eateries. We certainly hope that the opportunity arises that you can once again visit us.

We stayed in a family room at the Strath Motel, and were amazed at the level of detail, right down to a automatic soap dispenser in the bathroom. Rooms are very clean and tidy, and beds comfy.We had an apartment with two bedrooms with a tele in each. We also had a balcony area with a beautiful garden all the way around. Owners were very friendly and helpful, and were gardening when we were there. We will definitely stay again.
