Tired of motel accommodation on a work trip (I usually opt for b&b but all were fully this trip), I decided to subsidize the meager government accommodation allowance (its $121 per night outside of metro) and opted for Clarendon Chalets for two rejuvenating nights. Very happy with the location. Only 10 km from the Mount. I took delicious food from...

Stayed in the Meadows. Everything I needed was there, and plenty of good communication with the owners made the moment work well. The room was large, and the bed comfy. The breakfast provisions were more than I needed so had to leave a fair bit. A perfect spot to rest en route to another destination.

Great location, my partner booked online - we arrived to find a note left on reception door and as we were opening it Eve (owner appeared to direct us to our accommodation) where Frank was finishing off the chalet. Both Frank and Eve made us very welcome and even appeared with 2 avocados- delicious! We were lucky enough to stay...

It was a most enjoyable time at the Avocado Chalet which was well appointed. The owners were very kind and friendly and gave us some of their own produce. Our extra company were their Chooks, Guinea Fowls, Kangaroo, Kookaburras and other bird wildlife.The chalets are situated only a 15 minute drive from the town. We would certainly return there and...

We had booked the Studio room as we were only passing through for one night, when we arrived in Mount Gambier the power had gone out in the whole of South Australia!! The management explained the situation and gave us a couple of candles. We drove into town and brought some supplies, when we came back we realised that everything...

We have visited Mount Gambier twice in the past 3 years with one trip being a poor experience and other being fantastic. The town hadn't changed so the contrasting experiences came down to the accommodation. The Clarendon Chalet is located on a couple of hectares that allows for a lovely walk that includes beautiful trees, plants and wildlife. The setting...

Wife and I spent three nights in the Garden Chalet early April 2016. The owner was very friendly and helpful both when dealing with him over the phone when making the booking, and in leaving friendly notes to make us feel welcome as we arrived late in the day when he was not immediately available. The chalet had everything we...

The owner offered to find us a different place to stay when he discovered he had double booked our room. After Clarendon Chalets discovered this they suggested keeping the booking.com rate charged to us and they would book and pay for alternative accommodation on our behalf. However, the alternative motel was significantly less expensive than what we paid Clarendon Chalets!...

Dear UK Traveller, On reading your review it seemed very one sided and that was not the case. The booking resulted as a computer glitch at a weekend that the area was totally booked and taxed for accommodation. We advised you immediately on receiving your booking that we were not able to assist you in the accommodation. You advised us...

Fully self contained, THREE with spa baths, PRIVATE COURTYARDS, timber kitchen, TV, wood fire, reverse cycle air conditioning, BBQ, hair dryer, DVD player, fully equipped shared laundry, children’s cubby house. A short leisurely walk or bicycle ride to the hilltop past the neighboring winery.

Cosy, yet spacious, the Chalet is a restored artist/potters studio with lofty timber ceilings. Set on 15 acres in a unique farmland environment. Private and secluded romantic hideaway. There are four chalets operational. They are all fully self-contained with private bathroom facilities. Included is a continental breakfast or, for a small fee, provisions for a hearty farm style breakfast of bacon, eggs & tomato. Don’t worry about linen, crockery or hair dryer as it is all supplied. The smallest compact Studio Chalet outlook is onto the beautiful lawns & garden. It has a queen size bed, which is combined with the living area. It is lovely and cosy in winter & a ceiling fan cools the Chalet for summer. Star gazing windows surprise with a cathedral ceiling in this contemporary executive chalet. Suitable for executives or a couple. The Meadow Chalet has a slow combustion wood burning fire & ceiling fan in a separate living area with a timber floor. An outdoor setting allows enjoyment of a private patio area. A perfect getaway for couples, with a commanding view from the master bedroom.From the lounge room of the Orchard Chalet, you have a peaceful view of Clarendon’s own walnut grove. Enjoy quiet nights by the slow combustion wood fire or in the luxurious Corner Spa. The 2 room loft with one king bed and one queen overlooks the living area with double sofa. The Garden Chalet has the prettiest outlook being nestled at the bottom of the lawns, garden & towering blue gums. It’s ideal for families, with spacious accommodation for 4 - 7.
