I think staying in the Royal Hotel really made Hill End a great trip. We stayed 2 nights in a family room as described by the previous reviewer. I liked the hassle free approach, you just get your dinner from the bistro and eat in the dining room. We enjoyed great burgers with proper beef patties. The breakfast was so... More

We booked a family room (2 rooms together with a large open folding door beetween making it one large room) at the last minute (on a Friday) when we found ourselves arriving late in a very interesting place and wanted to spend more time. The rooms are very old which is expected since the pub was built in the 1870's!... More

Facilities are pretty run down and basic but we found it a really enjoyable authentic experience. Basic but clean rooms, staff and locals were friendly and welcoming and we really enjoyed the atmosphere. I would suggest people make sure they have some mosquito repellant as we did have some mossies in the room overnight.

We stayed for two nights while researching our family tree. The price is very good @ $75 per night and for that price we had a wonderful, funny experience sharing a few beers with the locals in a wonderful relaxed atmosphere. The staff (Jo) were lovely and the whole town had a funny, relaxed feel about it. Even now days... More

Two couples on a one day visit to Hill End (a Thursday). Town and museum well worth the trip (Go to the museum first. Use the toilet and get a town map.) The website for the Royal Hotel claimed a 7 day lunch and dinner bistro. All they had was a $30 cold platter. The man in the bar claimed... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Royal at Hill End twice over the last 18 months and, despite the Management changing in that time, we have thoroughly enjoyed our stays on both occasions. Recently, we visited in June, staying Wednesday through to Sunday. The locals are exceptionally friendly, Steve and Wendy (the Proprietors) were charming and attentive to... More

The Royal Hotel in Hill End was a charming hotel that has kept it's authentic feel. The rooms and dining hall felt like we had been transported back to the good old days when there was still golddiggers in Hill End and it was great to sit on the balcony with a cold beer enjoying the sunset. We were treated... More

My husband and I explored the region and intentionally stopped here for a cold beer to experience what it must have been like when the gold rush was on going. We stayed long enough for a sandwich that we brought with the cold beers we had there. Great for a stop over but not sure if I would stay the... More

Hill End is steeped in gold history and a typical australian country experience. A day out with the family to learn more of our past was greatly complimented by the experience at The Royal Hotel. The food was excellent and well priced. The service excellent and beer garden clean and peaceful with parrots. Also, amenities were clean and beer cold.... More
