Auburn is a wonderful place, the Hospitality at The Rising Sun was exceptional, from the first greeting right through to the very friendly and efficient staff at Dinner. Excellent food as well, very happy to change meals with no hesitation or problem. The only criticism we have is with the very very cold accomodation! We stayed in a superior Muse... More

My daughter and I called in here mid week and it was very very bleak - weather that is! the decor is rather dated but very attentive staff. The meal was amazing - I had the seafood stew - generous serve in a tasty tomato broth and the best sensational aioli I have ever had. My daughter had the gnocchi... More

Cosy atmosphere. Clean rooms & friendly staff. Would have liked a door on the ensuite bathroom but overall we enjoyed our stay. Auburn is a lovely historical town with beautiful restored buildings including the hotel.

Fantastic location, amazing cappuccino and coffees made by Chloe, a yummy mint chocolate as a bonus, a beautiful open wood fire which made it very cosy inside - couldn't have asked for anything better on a cool, Winter afternoon! Thank you!!

Sat in the bar next to the cosy log fire chatting with the locals. Host Ken approached us and offered advice on wineries and sites in the area after seeing us looking at pamphlets. Ended up staying for dinner and were not disappointed. Although meals were large serves they were hot and tasty. Wait staff were attentive and we were... More

We stayed in the deluxe cottage which was just gorgeous. They had wood ready for us to light a romantic fire, a split system and a big deep spotless bath. So we couldn't have been more warm and comfortable. The cottage garden is just gorgeous & the staff were lovely. We will definitely come again.

We ordered and waited for over an hour for simple meals, bangers and mash and a schnitzel. Yes they were busy but when we finally had the chance to ask about the meals they appeared minutes later.... the food was ok I suppose. I enjoyed the garlic bread but think they forgot the garlic. Oh well... I definitely would not... More

We stayed one night in the Clare Valley on our way to Western Australia. We had dinner at this great colonial style hotel. The main bar is exactly as you would expect from a good country pub, full of atmosphere and very friendly locals keen to chat. The draught beer is perfect and the meal we had was very good... More

Even though this is our local pub, the food here is always above average. So it was great to enjoy their new autumn menu last night. All the Entrées that we shared were tasty and looked great on the plate. Try the duck baskets and mushrooms. My main of 12 hour cooked pork belly was tender taste of Asian flavours... More

On our way down the Clare Valley we stopped at the historic Rising Sun Hotel for a drink at the bar -- this is a beautiful old building in the colonial style, very well maintained (we were sorry not to stay for dinner and the night). Excellent wine from the local vineyards. The staff was welcoming and friendly, and very... More
