Great Hotel”

Location is quite central to the amenities around the Mount Gambier area. Happy with the clean rooms and pleasantly surprised with the electric fitted blankets on the beds for cold nights. Stayed with 2 teenagers in another room and they found the place comfortable. Great friendly and attentive staff.

Sufficient accomodation for an over night stay”

Location, cleanliness of room and free parking.

Commodore on the Park was perfect for an over night stay. Good location for nearby shops, restaurants and sites, despite been on the main road. Few noises were heard into the night. Friendly and welcoming staff. Lots of parking available on site which is a bonus. Keep this hotel front of mind when coming to Mount Gambier.

Just plain noisy”

On the 14th and 15th October 2016 my wife and I stayed at the Commodore on the Park. The hotel is nice enough. It is well located in terms of access to Mt Gambier's city centre. The staff are really pleasant and attentive. The problem with the place is its location on the main intersection in Mt Gambier where the three main roads in/out of Mt Gambier meet, These being the roads via Millicent and the road via Penola to Adelaide and the road to Melbourne. It is excessively noisy and the car and truck traffic is ongoing through the night. Our room was just metres from the Penola road. Next time we'll research location with a view to avoiding high traffic areas.

good for a night or two”

was good for a night or two. We were in room 6 and had quite a bit of road noise throughout the night. Would have loved a toaster or microwave in the room, however there was only a kettle and mini fridge (which was stocked full of alcohol, and a bottle of wine was on the table, not the best idea for a room with kids!). the location is out of the main strip but opposite an oval and McDonald's across the road. The play area is small and surrounded by the car parking of the guests. The area has poor quality mobile internet, however the Hotel provides free internet for guests.

Good location. All attractions and shop are closed only about 10 to 15 by car.”

We book standard room but it was very noisy, we can hear all the noise from the next door room. Best to book the Deluxe room. Our friend book the Deluxe room and it was very conformable. The restaurant in the hotel is very expensive, best to buy from outside. The blue lake and sinkhole about 5 minutes drive from the hotel is very nice. We stay 2 days but was not enough to visit Mount Gambia. 3 to 4 days is enough to visit Mount Gambia. Do not book standard room.

Location and service was fantastic. Our room was facing the highway so the noise made it a bit hard to get to sleep on the first night. Blinds in the windows allowed light to filter through from cars parked right outside for a function. The room could be improved by a bit of refurbishment

Customer service needs improvement”

I booked a certain room online which was printed on my booking confirmation however when we arrived they advised I was in a lower rate room for the same price. I disputed this as per my booking and rather than apologising and putting us in the right room, the receptionist caused unnecessary stress by telling me it was out of their hands as that’s what was on their system and pretty much told me I had to sort it out myself! At the end of the day, I had a booking in writing which I expected to be fulfilled and it was a terrible start to our weekend away.

I found the rooms were clean and had everything needed in them. The bed was very comfortable and the staff, especially Sarah were fabulous. The breakfasts are 'huge'. I did find the dinners were not what I expected. I had twice cooked pork belly, the flavor was great and the heirloom carrots amazing, but it was very rich and I couldn't finish it. Also the prawn and squid fettucine, flavor was great but the slices of squid were sooo big they looked unappetizing and therefore I didn't eat them. Overall I very good motel/

Stayed here for two nights while attending the Embroiderers’ Guild of South Australia State Conference. The location was very convenient- only a short walk or an even shorter drive from the city centre. The room was comfortable and a good size. The restaurant catered for my various dietary requirements very well. Another conference attendee, who was also staying, has even more complicated requirements and the staff were very courteous and helpful in providing fantastic meals that meet our needs.

We booked online and were able to requested twin beds, and, although we had booked more than eight months in advance, and for four nights, we were told that twin beds would not be available.. The shower alcove has rust from a fixture on the tiles and the cold water tap has been broken for sometime. There were cob webs in the main room and the carpet was disgustingly filthy. Have been to Mt. Gambier on several other occasions and unfortunately thought we might try a new accommodation site this time.
