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!

From the moment you drove down the avenue of trees we knew this place was special and we we're right.

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.

Studio Suite

We saw no staff but everthing was organised. A beautiful quiet spot. Room was very comfortable but the windows in the raked ceiling had no curtains and let way too much light in.

Location: See above
Having booked this accommodation through Wotif we arrived late at night to find no record of our reservation. Not the hotels fault they had not been notified. However I consider this a lucky escape as from what I saw the development is run down, dark and dismal. So despite,having to drive for another hour to find a motel I'm glad we had to!!!

A gem of a place

We loved staying at Clarendon Chalets and will definitely be back another time. The house was lovely and the staff were really welcoming and friendly. The location is peaceful and attractive. A great place and a very reasonable rate for the quality.
