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

We were totally blown over by this beautiful mansion in the centre of Mt Gambier. We stayed in the Tartan Room which was very spacious and cosy. The room was beautifully appointed with chaise chair, coffee table, couch, fireplace, (no timber though to burn) access to upper floor balcony and clawfoot bath in bathroom. Breakfast the following morning was provided... More

You won't be disappointed staying here. Your host Patty does an excellent job and has good stories regarding the local history and places to visit and eat. Quiet except for the odd ghost or two. Or maybe that's just my imagination. This is a classic B&B that is worth staying at when you're in Mount Gambier if you want to... More

Stayed one night in the White Room. Spacious and grand old house a short stroll from the centre of town. We had the place to ourselves. Nicely furnished (although the paintwork in our room at least could do a with being freshened up). Lovely home made banana and walnut cake and cookies for guests to help themselves. Delicious. The breakfast... More

Colhurst House is a lovely property with a large, quiet garden in a convenient, walk to the cafes, suburban location. The breakfasts were something to look forward to, the bathroom was brilliant, the decor is delightful and the rooms were wonderful, but the real treasure of the place is the hostess, Patty. Patty made us feel welcome and at home,... More

It is a real treat and privilege to stay in a beautiful home such as Colhurst House. The home (aka the mansion) has been beautifully restored with an eye for detail. The rooms that we stayed in were all large and beautifully appointed. There is a stunning lounge room which is the perfect place to cosy up with a book... More

The continental and cooked breakfast was an extraordinary gastronomic experience. All prepared for by Patty, the "chatelaine" of the House. Please try the homemade granola, its ☆☆☆☆☆ . This truly...

Stayed here August 2014. This is a mansion and you know you are staying in one! We were lucky enough to have the whole place to ourselves, basically free run of the house. Great views from the return vehranda, warm rooms, great beds and a wonderful cooked breakfast next morning. Cannot praise this place enough!!
