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).

I love the centrality of the hotel, walking distance to the restaurants and right on the Main Street. The rooms are 1940 feel but I say this in a nice way, lovely furniture, patterned carpet from an earlier era, ornate cornices, etc etc. the rooms have very nice bathrooms and ironing boards, kettles etc. the room I had this time...

My family we stayed here for 2 nights in between Adelaide and Melbourne. The people were very nice and friendly and the area was very safe and very quiet. There was a large car park at the back of the hotel with lots of space. The rooms were clean & there was a lot of room in them. We had... More

We took my 90 year old mother and 14 family members to "the Gambier" for her birthday. The venue manager went out of her way to ensure the evening was a huge success, took photos for us at the end of the night and made my dear old Mum feel really special. The food was sensational - not one complaint... More

We came here for a meal, the service was ridiculously slow and some of the staff were rude. Our meals didn't come out together either. The food was overpriced for the quality. Never get the gnocchi if you come here - it was deep fried!! Never had deep fried gnocchi before. The other meals we had were also bland. Wouldn't... More

Spent a couple of nights at "the Gambier" on a road trip & was very impressed with all aspects of this grand old hotel. It was on a main corner in town & was within a stones throw (2 mins walk) of the Cave Gardens & close to all shops, cafes & restaurants. The rooms were large, spotlessly clean &... More

First the positives - Excellent friendly and helpful staff! Great front bar for drinks and food. Good menu reasonably priced with large tasty servings. There is a restaurant with table service if you are looking for a nicer touch. The water was warm and the sheets were clean. We stayed on a Thursday night and did not have any issues... More

Rooms were good. Lovely environment and a feel of travel back in time. And good food in the restaurant but the rooms were noisy at night. They have a pub which played music till late night. Moroccon chicken was delicious. They have to improve on the noise factor. Otherwise we were happy with overall service. Friendly staff.
