Overnight stay near the CBD Centre
While on a weekend trip around the South East region, I chose The Federal Hotel as a well priced Saturday night stay near the centre of Mount Gambier city. Be aware that if you are driving, the car park is shared with the on-site Dan Murphy and hotel patrons, so can be busy and a little hard to find a park near the rooms. Checkin was easy. The bedroom, while small with a single bed, was comfortable with a spacious ensuite bathroom. There are other rooms available, some facing outside and some inside. The room, while being relatively close to the front bar and above the dining bistro, was just far enough away so that noise was not really an issue. Overall, an ideal location for a well priced comfortable overnight stay, with lots of shopping and dining options and a discount at the hotel itself.

Friendly staff + 10% off for hotel guest dining in their bistro. Clean & updated room. The only negative is the bathroom vanity sink is too small.

Nice clean rooms and very comfortable beds. However noise was a real issue and would prevent us staying there again.

Good location, comfy bed but pretty basic
Good-free drink and restaurant voucher. Comfy bed, free parking, good location, dan Murphy right behind the hotel, friendly staff even if understaffed. Bad-understaffed, the person who checked me in was coughing a fair bit, doesnt exactly fill you with confidence about their covid status. Bathroom could use a facelift. One of the spoons in my room still had coffee stain on it. No bedside light. Overall good enough for a night or two but pretty basic.
Not the cleanest coffee spoon I've seen
