Some things never change and for Mount Gambier’s Jens Hotel, to a certain extent, that is true.
The stunning 19th century facade pays homage to the early days of one of Mount Gambier’s oldest hotels, and the stunning central staircase and chandelier, still popular for wedding and formal photos, also remains true to a bygone era.
There is the UBET Sports Bar – the only UBET facility outside metropolitan Adelaide – with its upgraded pressed tin bar; wall to wall screens, as well as Fox Sports HD throughout the hotel so you don’t need to miss a minute of the action.
The Sports Bar is also perfectly located adjacent to the dining room so you can start your evening with some casual drinks before sitting down and enjoying the delicious pub fare you’ve come to expect from the Jens kitchen.
The Sports Bar also flows into a cafe style dining area and then there’s the newly established beer garden that caters for 100 patrons, either for a casual catch up with friends, or a private function.
