Arrived at the hotel just after dark and parked in the big parking lot between the shops, and adjacent to the hotel reception . The barman who was also looking after reception was super efficient, and very quickly found our booking. He then asked where we parked, and when I told him, he said there was undercover parking and even... More

We were passing through and had pre booked here to stay overnight. We had a little trouble finding it, as we didn't realise it was at the back of a Pub. The room was comfortable and we had a lovely view from our balcony. We went down to the pub for dinner and it was really nice. The Staff there... More

It's a pub with a great view of the Bay and a decent dinner menu. After work or meeting friends for dinner, on a sunny day the back deck is the only place to be. Gorgeous view of the water, the staff are friendly and the food is served up with pride - tasty and reasonably priced.

Stopped here for lunch on our way back to Canberra and the food was good. Can sit inside or out on the balcony lovely view from either. We ordered the Pulled Pork burger and Prawn and Crab salad. Both were very good and salad was large. Things went downhill when we decided to go to the toilet as we were... More

You can't get any closer to the centre of town and this is why we elected to stay here. Very central and convenient. This is an old hotel with a few obvious recent upgrades like carpet. We had a room with a great balcony and beautiful view over the Clyde river but we also had a close and unnervingly personal... More

They're trying really hard, I'll give then that. They're not far off the mark either. I might describe the next things in detail, but if/when addressed, I'd gladly be back. We stayed in a newly updated room on the second (of three) floor. The new carpet was great and hid the musty smell well. The newly tiled bathroom was also... More

good value with an even better view. Room no 5. $100.00 Bistro meal of tempura battered mushrooms and seafood tasting platter was delightful. Well worth a relaxing stay on a good bed late model TV old style aircon but it works.
