Ate lunch on the 26th Feb and was expecting an ok meal. Turned out to be fantastic! We chose the Pork Belly Salad & Lamb Cutlets. Great proportions and quality produce with a modern flair. We will certainly be eating here again.

Chose this motel for a 3 night stay, finding accommodation for 4 at this time of year was hard with prices being quite high. After staying in other hotels after leaving Bowral the 4 star rating given to this motel by AAA Tourism makes me wonder?? Bed not real comfortable, either where the pillows, sofa bed that the children slept... More

I am a regular here for good basic pub food. The steak is excellent though you can be waiting a while if they are busy. Table clearing service could be better but generally friendly, clean & hearty food always available.

We've always stop here when we're around this area for the good. The chicken schnitzel is definitely the winner and good value for money. They used to do an amazing chocolate mousse to but alas this has gone downhill. Service has always been prompt and helpful at the bar and once the restaurant opens there's usually a line to order!

Clean with all the necessary amenities. We stayed in the family room. We found out the hotel has a tin roof as there was a hail storm & it was very loud in the middle of the night. The shower head in the bathroom was wonderful - made for a great shower. Quite a good motel room at a good... More

Stayed on the bottom floor and found the room to be very comfortable and clean. Easy parking and had a great nights sleep. The Hotel served great modern Australian food and wine list was better than average. Would certainly stay and most definately eat her again!

We only stayed for one night (early Oct 2013) in this motel and found it to be clean and comfortable. We had no complaints about the room - it was a typical motel room and was fairly modern and the bed was comfortable. For the amount we paid it was a bit over-priced but it was in the school holidays... More

When we called in to reception to book in it was like it was the biggest nuisance of the day. Staff totally indifferent, couldn't even raise a smile and everything was done at a snails pace. Very disappointing. Room was comfortable for a 1 night stay, bed was ok. Parking limited. Did not try the bistro instead went down to... More

Check in was a exercise in depression, staff should learn to smile and just be more pleasant not so down , don't expect a warm greeting or what is normal greetings at all, rather dull and seemed a chore for staff. Room is dull but comfortable, lots of noise from car-park, other rooms and road at front of Hotel and... More

The hotel was okay, the service at the bar was inviting however when it came to the food section the service was very poor and the food wasn't to standard. My food was cold and not appealing at all, for the price I paid it wasn't worth it and the steak I purchased was also over cooked
