We loved everything! A small bar fridge in the room would have been nice but we didn’t really feel like we missed out.

We loved everything about Colhurst House. Our room was large and airy. The king size bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was unbelievable - probably about 5 metres square and heated by a split system reverse cycle airconditioner. Patty our host is such a lovely woman and makes a great breakfast! A wonderful location, walking distance to the Main Street. We couldn't have had a better 2 night stay. Highly recommended. Thank you Patty for making our stay such a relaxing experience.

This is even more lovely than the website shows

Pros: The old world charm, the cleanliness, ambience and basically everything about it.
Cons: We didn't see anything.
We travel... a lot! We were going to Mt Gambier for a family wedding and I wanted to stay somewhere nice. This exceeded our expectations. It is really stunningly lovely, the owner was very accommodating as I hadn't thought it out terribly well, check in was 2pm and the bus was scheduled to pick us up for the wedding at 2.25pm! A rushed call from the airport and she arranged to get us in earlier which was fabulous. The room was honestly one of the nicest that we have staying in, I loved everything about it. We will definitely stay here again.

Reminiscing

We visited Mt Gambier as my partner grew up there and had a great 3 nights in the 'Black room ' at Colhurst. Great character residence, clean and comfortable with an excellent ensuite to our room. Very friendly host and beautiful gardens setting. Quiet and very convenient to the town. We'll be back.
