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.

Beautiful accommodation in a stunning property. We had a room with interconnecting lounge area. Antique furniture and ornamentation beautifully compliment the historic building. Really comfy bed and bedding. Bathroom very stylish with underfloor heating, Welcomed on arrival by Michael who was very friendly, making sure we had everything we needed after a long drive. We had dinner and breakfast at the adjoining property (The Commodore). Would recommend both.

Property's Favourite Review
We stayed in the stunning Frew room which had a sitting room with fire, amazing blue bathroom and lovely bed. The whole place was immaculate and first class in every way. Ashley was also very helpful and showed us around. We were able to charge our electric vehicle at the adjacent Commodore Hotel, also part of the estate. This is truly an exceptional property which we highly recommend.

This is a wonderful boutique luxury option for a stay in Mt Gambier. Located about a 5–10-minute walk to the centre of town, this is a heritage property that has been renovated and furnished to a high standard. The common areas are beautiful – gorgeous dining room and full size billiards room! The high quality linens, fluffy towels and bathrobes, beautiful mini bar and glassware are thoughtful touches that make this a luxe stay. We stayed in the Hay Suite which had a bedroom with a large flat screen TV and a small lounge with a gas fireplace. These were connected by a spacious well-equipped bathroom. The space didn’t work that well for us because we are on a long road trip with lot of luggage, but this is a lovely option for a weekend treat!

Hi Suzie, Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review. We are delighted to hear your kind words about our estate and are glad to hear you enjoyed our spaces and luxury options. Of our suites, the Hay is a little smaller, and perhaps one of our other luxury suites would have better accommodated your luggage; we're sorry to hear the Hay spaces didn't quite work for you. Thank you for choosing to stay at Delgattie Estate, and we wish you all the best and safe travels.

We stayed one night in the Frew Suite, which was just beautiful. Though the arrival to the property left us wondering what we’d booked, our concerns were quickly set aside. Damon provided an extraordinarily warm and gracious welcome, and introduced us to a spacious and beautifully decorated room and its amenities. Clean, comfortable, beautiful bath products and wonderful tea and coffee. We had dinner at their sister property, as well as breakfast in the morning—both tasty, simple fare.

If I could give Delgattie Estate more that 5 stars I would. It was outstanding in every way. The accommodation was superb, the staff were very friendly and catered to our every need. The location was excellent, an easy drive to the Blue Lake etc. I would definitely recommend Delgattie Estate to anyone wanting a luxury getaway.

Of the 3 suites available, only the Walker Suite appealed to us for its size and decoration. Positives: Wonderful bed !! Heated marble bathroom floors, deep bath, good lighting, beautiful sunny sitting room, fabulous property, free roam of the common areas including the kitchen, pool room and dining room, beautiful furnished with lovely tea/coffee/liquor set up, wonderful selection of furniture. Drawbacks: Little space for hanging clothes, no sofa (if you want to watch TV, the most comfortable option is to lay in bed but there's also a straight backed chair), internet is patchy which makes the streaming service for movies a bit jumpy.

The estate is beautiful, very well maintained. Ashley was very welcoming. Our room was spacious. The living room has a gas fireplace 😍. The bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed. A big tv screen. I would have add a shelf in the bathroom. Thumb down for the foxtel on the tv, the network was crap and we were unable to watch anything. We had a very good time and I recommend this venue for a nice peaceful weekend.

Hi AudreyDru, Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a review, we're thrilled to hear you enjoyed your room and that Ashley was welcoming for your stay, he sure has the guest experience top of his list! And with the weather we've been having recently, the gas fireplace is a winner in our books too! We are sorry to hear about the Foxtel though, we'll be looking into this and appreciate this feedback. Thank you for choosing Delgattie Estate and we hope to have the chance to welcome you again for another peaceful stay.

Beautiful boutique accommodation in Mount Gambier. Charming facilities, rooms immaculately clean with lots of little extra bonuses. Bedroom, beautiful bathroom and deluxe sitting room with your own gas fireplace. Accommodation has 3 suites under the same roof, but there is enough space to not run into the other guests if you prefer not too. Upstairs is a piano and full size billiards table with a balcony overlooking the township. Reccomend tea next door at sister hotel the Commodore. Exquisite food and service. Thanks to staff member Ashley who provided excellent customer service.

This would have to be one of the most beautiful places we have stayed in. Ashley met us on arrival and showed us through the property, greeting us with a bottle of bubbly on ice. He went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and made us feel right at home. We stayed in the Frew Suite and we were wowed by the size of the suite and the amazing decor with the most comfortable bed. I loved the sun room, it was my favourite spot to relax in the afternoon. This place is perfect in every way, from the house (which we were lucky to have all to ourselves on the first night), the location and the staff who made sure everything was perfect. We will be back!

What can I say . We stayed in the Frew room. This was one of the best places we have stayed at. The house was grand and exceptional. The owners have done a brilliant job in presenting the house. The staff were exceptional answering questions we may have had and very friendly. We highly recommend this beautiful home.
