Had sandwiches for lunch and we were surprised about the great quality and good price. Can recommend it. Staff was very nice Location is great - right in the city centre. Nice terrace Negative - tables outside were not clean. Had to clear the glasses ourselves

Its nice to see that some old country pubs still offer rooms. This Hotel is right in the middle of Mount Gambier. Downstairs is a bistro, public bar, gaming venue and restaurant. Whilst not a restaurant review it was a very good meal at a good price. The hallway to the room was over squeaky floor boards. The room was... More

Best thing about this experience is they were open and relatively quick with the service. Three couples for a lateish breakfast (11:00am) on a Sunday morning in Mt Gambier can be a challenge so it worked for us. Had the omelette which was ok, but presentation was an omelette slapped on a plate (we don't eat toast). Saw the bacon... More

Returned to the Gambier Hotel for breakfast with friends. I have to say it has improved. The service was friendly and efficient and the food really nice. I chose the omelet and it was full of flavours and quite filling. My coffee was a bit hot but that's being picky. Another good thing us that the hotel was open on... More

If you are looking for a decent meal, go to a fast food outlet, as the Mount Gambier Hotel was a disappointment! After a day of family adventures at the Naracoorte Caves, the hungry tribe headed south to Mt Gambier for a good hearty pub meal. We ordered roast of the day (pork with crackling); 2 chicken schnitzels and the... More

Thought I would lead with the review we ate here not stayed here. The menu sounded so tasty it was hard to choose what to eat! We decided on a chicken schnitzel with chosen topping - parmigiana & steak frites. Yummmmy! There are lots of different sections to sit in - inside, outside & bar. We sat outside as it... More

We were on a nostalgia trip, driving my parents from Adelaide to Melbourne via the Great Ocean Road. We were in no hurry and planned to explore as we progressed. The ‘Limestone Coast’ has a lot to offer tourists, and Mt Gambier is a great place to use as a base to visit superb caves and other natural wonders as... More

We booked two rooms for the night. Ended up with rooms 9 and 6. The renovations done in this place is a joke. It seems like they've added areas to the building without bothering to fill in old windows. Room 9 has: - a window in the MAIN BEDROOM with a view into what looks like a board/meeting room, complete... More

My husband needs GF. Looked at the menu saw they had a number of meals labeled GF( gluten free) no mention of an option as they do in some places. He ordered the squid and chips. When it arrived he asked the waitress to confirm it was GF as the squid had crumbs on it. She said yes the squid... More

Hi Thank you for your feedback and we're sorry to hear about your dining experience with us. We have checked with the kitchen and it looks as though the menu wasn't updated as there had been a change in our fries which were previously Gluten free.

I usually stay at the Barn when visiting Mt Gambier, but it was fully booked on this occasion, so I booked here at the last minute based on Trip Advisor ranking. Really pleasantly surprised! I was given a huge two bedroom self-contained apartment on the ground floor complete with kitchen and washing machine (not that I used it on a... More
