stranded without accommodation in the busy Xmas period after another hotel stuffed up our booking, we were rescued by Manager Chris and his colleague Sonya who went out of their way to accommodate us and make our stay a happy experience. The room was large and extremely comfortable, first floor balcony lovely, the meals in the restaurant & bistro fantastic,... More

We stayed here after druving frim Melbourne along the great icean Rd. Booked directly with them on their website. It was one of the highlights of our trip. It was one of the first hotels where we felt like we could imagine the pioneering Austalian experience. Our room was HUGE. We were worn out and tired. It was great to... 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...

After a gap of about 10 years returned to the Mont Gambier Hotel for a short stay recently. Originally chosen for its atmosphere and central location was not disappointed that it was still the place to stay. You cant get more central to Mount Gambier ....it is at the very centre. Old and charming, with old furnishings and old rooms... More

Serve meals till 9pm so 4 of us arrived at 8.45pm after attending a concert and greeted by friendly staff. We did not feel rushed at all as we thought might happen. Beef and chicken schnitzels enjoyed and bbq chicken pizza was so good we would definitely return just for their pizza. We then ordered desserts to share and though... More

Let's get the only criticism out of the way first. You gotta if you arrive after 5pm it seems to check in via the Pokie machine room. There's nothing worse then waiting to check in to a hotel while some guy in front gives you the "I've just blown my pay packet" look. My partner maintains if she was alone... More

On my way driving across Australia I stopped for a rest at this historic hotel. I am glad I did, my room was spacious and comfortable, even though a little noisy on a Saturday night. The food is well above "pub food" standard and all meals I had were freshly prepared and very tasty. - Staff are friendly and all... More

Having stayed at the Mount Gambier Hotel earlier in the year it was without hesitation that i booked to stay there again. The room i was given was spacious well fitted out and spotlessly clean. Even though it was raining and a cold wind blowing the heating worked a treat and i felt warm and cosy.

The hotel is in a perfect spot. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The bar is a great spot to unwind and the breakfast was spot on. The staff are friendly, helpful, professional and go that extra mile to make the stay a good one. (My only gripe is the pillows! Time to upgrade).
