The reputation of this hotel precedes itself and although I had stayed there some years ago, I wanted to repeat the experience. The wonderful hospitality, delicious restaurant cuisine and comfortable rooms in a serene garden setting. Strangely, I remember little of driving from Adelaide to the Barn just outside of Mount Gambier. As I pulled up to the property I remember being greeted by a lovely young lady who opened my door and offered to take my luggage. Although all of wishes were granted from the time that I arrived, I had trouble believing that I was actually there. I simply have little recollection of even eating in the award winning restaurant or sleeping in the comfortable bed. It is as if my stay was something of a dream like experience. Although I know that this is a fine hotel, when I awoke to a new day, I was back in Adelaide and I was having trouble even remembering visiting this place. Did I actually go there or was it just a illusion?

Lovely place not far from town. Comfortable sized room and great comfortable beds. Unfortunately room 48 is right next to the laundry where the phone ringing and staff going about their business can be heard through the wall. Otherwise I really loved staying at this place.
