This older home with its soaring ceilings and gracious decor is hosted by the ever friendly and available Patty. This breakfast will ruin any other place you stay and is all locally sourced and delicious. Its quiet, its beautiful and its the place to stay

I'm not going to say much, except to say read the nex half dozen other recent reviews. I agree with them all! The welcoming cake and biscuits were a loveoy touch. The lounge, porch and gwrden make lovely relasing areas. As another reviewer noted, I would also like to see breakfast included in rate (extra $20pp).

Colhurst House is that Federation style of architecture that you drive up to and think - ah I'm home! We were given instructions on how to enter and this made us feel like we were walking into our own place - albeit a bit grand, I know. We had the white room upstairs with views of the town. The room... More

Lovely place. Bathroom was newly renovated. Linen was lucsious and garden amazing. Beautiful wooden floorboards and wonderfully decorated. Breakfast included for the cost would have been nice or a evening super depending on requirments. But a perfect place to stay.

I wish we had booked for more than one night, it was exceptional. The accommodation was amazing, we had the Tartan Room, huge with lounge suite and sitting area, beautiful... More

We stayed at Colhurst for 2 nights as part of a 2 week road trip around SA. Originally built and owned in the 1800s by one of Mount Gambier's mayors, it sits on a hill in the centre of the CBD making it very convenient. Beautifully restored and maintained the house is a delight and each guest room is very... More

Charming huge room with gorgeous decor, fireplace, balcony, comfy bed, extremely clean & inviting and lovely ceiling rose. Host Patty is friendly and engaging, cooked us a lovely breakfast and...

My partner and I stayed in the white room for three nights in August 2015. Patty, the host, is very friendly, helpful and knowledgable about the local surroundings. The room was comfortable, warm, well appointed and complimented by a claw foot bath. The surrounding gardens were beautiful made even better by Smithy, the friendly dog, accompanying you on your walk.... More
