Welcome to The Commodore

Built on Mount Gambier’s old saleyards in 1963, The Commodore Motel was established by successful motelier George Frew as part of his established chain of Motels, stretching throughout Western Victoria and Queensland. Fast forward to January 1989, The Commodore was taken over by Leanne and Evan Kosch and, for over 30 years, has become a superior choice for accommodation and dining in Mount Gambier, South Australia.

A strong focus since the acquisition has always been a commitment to modern accommodation, dining and function facilities, and over the years, major renovations and upgrades have been executed. Most recently, this has included redesigned and refurbished rooms and suites.

The Commodore offers options for corporate or leisure guests with 53 spacious rooms and three self-contained apartment style accommodation houses right in the heart of Mount Gambier, South Australia; our unmatched location is just a 5 minute walk to the city centre.

Our passion for exceeding guest experience in all areas of our Business is second to none, and that includes dining and events. We genuinely love to celebrate, and for over 30 years now, THE COMMODORE has been top of mind as a destination for memorable dining, functions and accommodation. Our state of the art facilities and dedicated team specialise in delivering one of a kind experiences for you and, of course, your guests when it comes to events of all kinds. Plus, our facilities allow you the chance to host an epic party or event for up to 200 people.

If you’re looking for fine dining, our restaurant is ready to welcome you for breakfast and dinner 7 days a week. Plus, the magnificent view over the picturesque Frew Park elevates your dining experience. The seasonal A la Carte menu and chef selections offerings are also complemented by our diverse two-glass awarded wine list, which is home to some of the Coonawarra Wine Regions’ best wines. Not to mention the bar with a gin selection offering more than 100 gins!

Now you know more about us; we wish to welcome you to experience the best of regional hospitality at The Commodore.
