Hubby and I stopped here for the night when traveling East to West coast. Bathroom was a little less clean than I would've expected however it was a comfortable enough room and we slept well. It was in a good location for a quick afternoon/evening visit to Hahndorf. Check in was quick and hassle free.

We stayed at the motel for 4 nights, the room was missed for its clean up the next morning and the next day the carpets were not vacuumed - I know Motels do not vacuum each day when guests stay multiple nights, however the carpets needed to be done - after requesting this it was done the next day.

The motel can easily be reached in a day's drive from Melbourne. Situated on the edge of Adelaide, the city can be bypassed if heading further west towards Port Augusta. The rooms are clean and have a microwave with plates, cutlery and dish washing facilities. Only drawback is some noise from trucks braking as they come down the freeway.

We like staying here for an overnighter or a few days. Rooms are clean and have tea and coffee making facilities, fridge, microwave and utensils. It is abit dated and could do with a re vamp but the price is reflected in this. Overall an ok hotel.

I had a Spa room, number 22. Was ok. The wifi is a no go, could barely stay connected, the water stinks, the spa bath jets looked funky & kinda gross.. I had to work out what supplied power to what in the 'kitchenette' as you could only have one thing plugged into a power point at a time! So... More

Came to Adelaide for the festivals. Stayed at the Tollgate Motel. Had a great time. The motel is easily 3 star. A bit dated but clean and convenient to public transport. A short walk and the bus took me straight into the city. My room was well presented and had all the conveniences I require. Bed was comfortable, shower pressure... More

The beds and bedding were very clean. The location was handy for us and the traffic noise although noticable was not too bad, however that is where the positives ended. The fridge handle and rubber were full of old crumbs. The kettle stained brown inside and grubby on the outside. The bathroom/ toilet was the pits. Dirty walls, the shower... More

Room appeared like it had not been cleaned with crumbs all over the bench, dust & crumbs on the carpet not to mention the strands of hair on the table.

Thanks for your review. I spoke to our housekeepers and it seems there was a mix up with your room and the final vacuum and wipe down was not completed. Each thought the other had done it!

A comfortable, convenient & clean motel room. This was a very spacious room (apart from the toilet/shower area where you almost have to be slim to get in & out of the show) with everything you would need to stay for more than one night. It could, however, do with a small set of drawers to unpack your bag for... More
