We have been here before and have always had an enjoyable meal. Service is a little slow but staff are friendly and accommodating. The fires are a nice touch. The bar area was particularly noisy on the day we were there.

If I could give minus 5 stars I would. As a fine dining chef I love to check out the local pubs to get a feel for the town I'm staying at, and this pub should not be in this beautiful city of Mount Gambier. After waiting 50 mins for a salad and soup I was very disappointed.. The unseasoned... More

A nice cold beer, battered fish burger with some chilli sauce. A good feed at a budget price. Great selection of condiments to suit any taste meant my meal had just the right amount of heat. My wife enjoyed her chicken schnitzel as well. Been here 3 times for lunch, always good.

I have updated this review, as I feel that the action taken by the hotel manager after I posted my initial review (which is still included) is worth noting. My husband and I have visited the Mount Gambier Hotel many times, though we have never stayed in the rooms. The food is excellent, the assortment of taps to choose from... More

My family visited the restaurant in this beautiful old hotel for a birthday celebration. The menu was extensive with varied prices. All our serves were large with excellent service. The atmosphere was cosy with a wood fireplace beside our table. We will be going back again.

The taxi driver told me this was the 2nd to oldest building here, not sure if that's true but it does have the charm. Rooms are spacious staff friendly , everything you need is here and its right smack in the middle of town. Great place. Also the food and bar are great

I travelled for work and stayed one night at the Mount Gambier Hotel. The room was very big, with a separate sitting area, and adequate amenities to make a tea, coffee, etc. Staff were pleasant, and the hotel has real charm. I would stay again.
