We decided to have dinner here, we both ordered Crumbed lamb cutlets. We were not disappointed, they were delicious. Popular hotel, nice atmosphere, staff very friendly. Highly recommend, we definitely do not agree with previous reviews.

Had a few beers here during our stay in Port Douglas. Seemed very popular so one night decided to risk a meal. I regret doing so!! I ordered chicken schnitzel. My wife some other chicken dish. It came reasonably quickly, but both meals were grossly overcooked. My portion was extremely large, but nearly inedible. The salad was very ordinary as... More

We come to Port Douglas regularly and often have a drink at the Central. Last night at 7:15 p.m. I asked if she could go and ask five children who were running around and screaming to keep quiet. Her response was - this is a family restaurant and kids are welcome. While I think most parents these days prefer to... More

After 10 days of eating at various restaurants in Port Douglas, the central hotel would be the utter most terrible. Ordered the 55 dollar seafood platter. The half lobster looked already half eaten and suffering some disease. There was no sign of the marinated octupus. Didnt even receive proper utensils to eat the meal. Friends ordered a chicken snitzel and... More

Stumbled onto it by accident. On the main street with tables and seats outside; plenty of character in the bars; reasonably priced drinks and food and the latter was of good quality.The night we visited there was a live MUSO in the main bar, and he was good.!! ( sixties and seventies )

My partner and I decided to stay in Port Douglas after seeing how beautiful it was. We stayed at the centeral Hotel because of the location and the price. We enjoyed our one night here and found the staff very nice and helpful.

This is our favourite pub in Port Douglas. There is always an activity of some kind on including Trivia, meals are great and there is plenty of options to choose from. Staff make you feel welcome regardless of whether you want a meal or just a drink.

Could not get into the Mexican restaurant so decided to try a pub meal instead. The central hotel has a lovely breezy feel to it, unfortunately for us, that was were the pleasant experience ended. We ordered two meals, one fish and chips, the other a rare to medium steak - neither we thought were "slow food" meals but after... More
