My husband I and I treated ourselves to an overnight stay at this Hotel for our anniversary, and it was excellent. The room was very heritage style, and keeps it's original charm, but they have renovated the bathroom to be an awesome modern ensuite. We ate in the restaurant called 1862 Wine Bar & Grill which is attached to the... More

After checking out numerous venues within the town , We were impressed by the meals at the Gambier, good variety and large servings. Friendly staff and an awesome assortment of beers on tap. Made for an enjoyable night out.

We drove across from Adelaide on our way home to Melbourne. We were given Room 13 which turned out to be a recently renovated Apartment style room. It was sensational. We stayed on Valentines Day and the place was packed for dinner. We hadn't booked so we ate in the Bistro and the food was pretty good. The breakfast was... More

if you want quantity rather than quality this is for you, massive serves though the food was not that good. Perhaps we should have gone for the mains rather than a selection of the sharing plates. Great friendly service though, staff there were fantastic.

The room was large and extremely comfortable, first floor balcony lovely, the meals in the restaurant & bistro fantastic,... More

We've stayed there for last 2 days in 2014 and we were very happy with the central location and the cleanliness and the charm of the room with its old furnitures. Obviously the last night being NYE was a bit nosy with a DJ playing duffduff music in the bar area until 3 am sharp, which you could still hear... More

Hello Uli F, As you can imagine, the whole town of Mt Gambier was a bit of a buzz around the end of the year with New Years Eve, and there were certainly a lot of people around. It's a shame that your free wifi wasn't working, we have recently updated our free wifi service, and were experiencing a few... More

We arrived around 4pm on Saturday afternoon and dropped our bags in the room before grabbing a few brochures which were displayed outside in the hall, and heading down to sit in the sun outside with a beer/wine to plan our visit. We went back to the room to relax before dinner, really happy with how large it was, with... More

Hello Miranda M, Very appreciative of you taking the time to write a review on your time stayed at the Hotel. As you have pointed out in your review, we do hold the Nightclub style scene on Friday and Saturday nights, but we do have rooms a fair away from the bar area, that minimises the inconvenience of noise to...
