Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great stay. Positives - location was central. Room was clean. Bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was spacious. Big TV. Friendly staff. Food was good and convenient. Negatives - lots of stairs. Not great if you have lots of luggage. Floor can be a little noisy.

The Mount Gambier Hotel is very central, opposite the Cave Gardens and a perfect location for shopping and dining. The hotel has friendly, professional staff. Downstairs there is a lovely bar and restaurant, which incorporates reception. I would describe it as a classy pub with 5 star rooms. I had a king room- it was not only huge, but beautifully appointed. It was well equipped, had a very comfortable sitting area and a stunning bathroom. Breakfast was good and the staff happily served it upstairs on the mezzanine when requested. I highly recommend the Mount Gambier Hotel for those who enjoy beautiful rooms and friendly service.

Walked into the hotel the decor was very nice, the menu was innovative and extensive, different even. The wine list was extensive local and regional wines. Bar staff were definitely not over the top friendly. When the food came out the presentation was excellent but the vegetables were cold and the meat just warm . Everything was in place but the final product very,very disappointing They missed the wow factor by a couple of hundred kilometres,

This hotel was fantastic. The room was like an apartment and completely exceeded my expectations. It was very clean and comfortable and I wished I had stayed here more than one night. The staff were excellent, especially as they were very busy. The food was exceptional. Highly recommend.

We spent a few days over Easter here and it exceeded our expectations. A lovingly renovated grand old hotel, in an ideal central location, with very spacious, tastefully appointed and comfortable rooms with thoughtful touches. We had a room overlooking busy Commercial Road and with the excellent double glazing it was very quiet and peaceful. The Cave Garden and Robert Helpmann theatre are right across the road and Commercial Road is full of eateries. Would definitely stay again!

The Mount Gambier has the BEST chips (crispy outside, soft inside) we four ever tasted. Meals were very good, generous choices at reasonable prices. Tables are spaced sufficiently to hold a conversation without raising your voices. Clearly popular so best to book. Staff were very friendly and efficient. Highly recommend!

First time visit (2 night stay on coastal drive). No particular outstanding features, but sizeable, comfortable/ clean rooms with an excellent shower. Food also good (room service one night, & breakfast one morning). Staff very attentive, I cannot fault.

I was staying in Mt Gambier, and went out to look for some breakfast at about 7.30am. Nothing in the main drag seemed to open before 8am, except the Mt Gambier Hotel. I decided to take a punt, and I'm really glad I did. The first morning I had poached eggs and bacon on sourdough with a side of mushrooms. The eggs were cooked perfectly, with lovely runny yolks, there was a very generous portion of bacon and the mushrooms were REAL sautéed mushrooms, and not some tasteless, heated up canned phenomenon so beloved of some cafes and restaurants now days. The food was so good. that I had breakfast at the Mt Gambier Hotel every morning thereafter. The Big Breakfast was amazing. A huge serve with real honest to God sausages, and not some anemic chipolatas. Everything on the plate was spot on. Also I can recommend the scrummy omelet, cooked to absolute perfection. It can be difficult to find an omelet in a lot of cafes now, particularly a beauty like the one served here. I was absolutely satisfied with the food at this hotel. Unfortunately the service was desultory on a couple of occasions, but mostly ok. If you're in Mt Gambier and looking for a really good breakfast, at very competitive prices, you can't beat this place in my opinion!

This gem of a hotel is piece of history. According to staff and the photos on the wall, it dates back to 1863,shortly after the town was started (1849). The rooms are recently renovated with the latest fixtures (touch mirrors, tab ceiling lights and electronic door handles), the beds are comfortable, the food is very good, and the atmosphere is great. Rooms have about 15 foot high ceilings. Also, there is a game room on the ground floor and even I was able to win at the slots. I wish we could have stayed longer.
