I am surprised at the relatively low score for this property. We found it delightful. Be aware that there is nothing in Dunkeld. I mean its cute but unless you like bushwalking, one night is enough. The hotel is lovely. Nice modern pool. We stayed in a Mountain View Room and were pleased to see that we did, in fact... More

We stayed here for two nights. The room was spacious and the bathroom very good. The balcony looked out onto land on which we saw kangaroos and emus, which was delightful. There was a walk from the hotel on which we saw more kangaroos. We had booked a table for the first night, only to find the time we had... More

(This is a review of the Restaurant not the hotel) I wish there was an intermediate point between average and very good. It sits somewhere between for me. But as it was't very good I have to settle for average. I have wanted to go here for months, probably even years, and unfortunately didn't get here while Dan Hunter was... More

Staying in this quiet town was simply amazing. The Royal Mail hotel which sits at the base if mt sturgeon is a dream. All you should do here is relax with a book and go for walks in nature around or up the mountain. The rooms are really clean and well designed, it was a little dated but you can... More

Worth the stop over, we were on a bit of a road trip, nothing pre-booked, wanted to go where the road and inclination took us. From Mount Gambier this is a short drive and definitely worth the stop. What a lovely room, we chose a room with a balcony and it is five star Plus, to open the window to... More

We have stayed and eaten at the restaurant, though on this occasion we dropped in and ate at the front bar. We had great fried whitebait to nibble on, then my girlfriend had an excellent celery and egg risotto for main, and I had the wagyu burger. The burger was dry and overcooked and a rather disappointing feed. The front... More

I took my wife here for a weekend out of the big smoke. The weather was lousy, rain and overcast we didn't see a mountain top till the day after our arrival. But still it was scenic, the rain refreshingly comforting, the country side lush and green. We arrived late on the Friday. The receptionist greeted us pleasantly and gave... More

We went to the Royal Mail for our last trip as a family of 2 and it was excellent. We ate at the restaurant, bistro and the public bar. All were great, from the 5 star food to the burger I can't fault a thing. The rooms were fantastic, hotel and restaurant staff so helpful and accommodating. If you're looking... More
