Claredon Chalets are beautifully appointed accomodation meeting all the needs of a family. Thae gardens are brilliant and the birds are highly entertaining. Peaceful country accomodation within great proximity of so many things to see and do.

The room had a very bad odour when we arrived/ we left the screen open to allow fresh air in however this made no improvement. There was no one at reception so we couldn’t request a new room. I believe the smell was possibly a dead possum in the roof ???? Also the carpet was a type of rough hessian material which was very coarse on the feet. Overall a very disappointing stay 😐

Great chalet with serene ambience

Spent one night with family. Great location and serene ambience. Chalet was clean and comfortable. Enough room with two separated queen beds. Definitely recommend to anyone visiting Mount Gambier!

Pros: Leaving
On arrival, no-one in reception but they left a note. Room provided was not the cottage we had booked & paid for 6 months in advance. Instead, had an older & substandard room from about 30 years ago, woken at midnight by people one of the adjoining rooms who talked loudly for the next hour. Next morning, asked why we had been downgraded. They gave our cottage to someone else at the last minute...."..Oh, didn't we tell you...?". Then attempted to provide us with a small part-refund, but instead charged our credit card MORE.

wonderful experience

Pros: the environment and the location is good. the hotel owner prepared milk, juice and bread for us.
Cons: the room is a little bit cool and the hair dryer doesn't work.
