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.

The majority of rooms are in a motel style block. A microwave and some cooking facilities are provided. The rooms are a good size and include a sofa and good working are with plenty of room to spread out documents. The restaurant provided good fayre but was not particularly cheap but was popular with locals. It met our needs.

Hotel's Favourite
Ideal place for a quick visit or if you are visiting for site seeing in Mount Gambier area. Very close to most of the key places to visit. The hotel / motel was clean and nice with comfortable rooms and clean toilets. Wish the pool was heated as it’s indoor and I am sure with some solar panels the hotel will have no electricity cost running a heat pump in doing this and will greatly benefit the guests (specially the kids). Didn’t get to try the restaurant (May be next time). I deal place to take a rest while driving between Adelaide and Melbourne.

Old and run down, needs a good clean and paint. Rooms are dusty and the pool area is not heated or maintained. The seating area was covered in spiderwebs. The reception/dining area was the nicest area but unfortunately that’s where it stopped.

Would not recommend this motel to any person. The room was adequate but had a leaking tap which dripped all night. There were crickets in the roof that made a noise that kept us awake for 3 and half hours. The beds were comfortable. When we checked out we advised the receptionist of the noise and leaking tap and her response was "we can't do anything about nature" - re crickets. I said they are in the roof surely someone could go up in the roof and get them out or spray them. Re the leaking tap she said that she would advise someone, but not with that much enthusiasm. No offer of compensation for having had no sleep just an apology that was not very sincere. This motel is situated in a good location but I would never stay here again as I felt the staff couldn't have cared less that we had a bad night.

I have just had a two night stay and was very disappointed with the customer service and the room. There was no menu or QR code in the room and no details on how to dial out for the reception. I phoned the reception from my mobile phone and Lilly could not tell me what number to use to contact reception and that I should google the menu for room service and then phone back on my mobile to order. Not to mention the bed was uncomfortable hard and had obviously not been rotated for a very long time. Weird set up in the bathroom, no mirror above the vanity, just a frosted glass window, the mirror was to one side with no lighting. No bottles of water in the fridge??????????????? When i checked out, there was no good morning or friendly face. As a frequent business traveler to Mount Gambier, I will not be staying there again.

The Henty is fine as a stop in Mount Gambier (one night would be enough I would say for both The Henty and for Mount Gambier). Rooms are OK, mine was quite dark, and don't look under the bed if you are worried about cleanliness! The restaurant was surprisingly good and seemed to attract lots of people from the area, not just from the motel. Plus the staff in both the restaurant and reception were super helpful and friendly. The pool is OK, not heated so not very relaxing. But the biggest problem is NO internet in the rooms. I was travelling with 3 friends and none of our 3 rooms had an internet connection, although they say there is. I would return but not for 2 nights.

We came as 2 family groups in 2 family rooms. We booked based on the fact that websites advised there was a pool and BBQ facilities. Unfortunately on arrival we discovered that there were no BBQ facilities. The pool was a good size and enclosed under cover but not heated at all. The on-site restaurant looked nice and for the most part was ok for breakfast(can’t comment on other meals as we didn’t use it) however for the amount you pay for pancakes and what you get I wouldn’t advise. I think it was $20 and it came with 2 small pancakes and a few pieces of berries. The room servicing was abysmal! We stayed for 6 nights and only one of those days were both rooms fully serviced, all beds made, toilets cleaned, bins emptied, coffee cups washed and fresh towels provided. It was not vacuumed during the time we were there. Most days we were only given fresh towels and the bin was emptied. The room itself was a decent enough size and the beds were comfy. A bonus was a guest laundry which was free to use with a washer and dryer available.

Got seved a massive, long,tough,gray/blonde hair,with my Mexican entre, nearly power spewed out of the restaurant, never been served a human hair piece in a meal in my life,on top of the tiny beer glasses,and outdated restaurant, we went back to the room and ordered domino's, management, didn't even call the room to assist with the unsettling relationship between guest and management. Kitchen looked dirty.lots of greasy hair in this place.

We share your disappointment with your restaurant experience and this very unfortunate event. This feedback for us is certainly not common, and we take it to heart. We have addressed the feedback with all of our team. Our modern restaurant reopened in late September following a substantial renovation to the venue's dining, bar and function facilities, and the new beer glass size is a 285ml schooner, although a different shape to the usual. We can ensure you our kitchen is clean, and we take our processes and systems for all areas of service seriously, this is also why we are deeply disappointed to hear of your experience. We can accept your frustration and feelings towards our restaurant, however following you approaching the front of house and kitchen staff, Management was on site and did approach you to try and rectify the issue, although your frustration and unwillingness to discuss the matter with our General Manager made it difficult to resolve the issue face to face. We, too are unsettled by being unable to resolve this with you. We extend our sincere apologies for your disappointing experience, and we thank you for choosing to stay at The Henty.

We Had a beautiful large, comfortable room and it was fantastic value. Friendly, helpful staff at reception. Even though it is on a main road our room was set back from the road a bit and was quiet. Very nice restaurant on site which has been recently renovated. Service and food were both excellent. Definitely would recommend.
