Paid $130 for the worst room we have ever stayed in. Carpet was ripped, torn and stained,ceiling had mould, the tiny double bed was against a wall. Looked and felt like a prison cell and desperately needs updating. Very noisy with no sound insulation. We gave it one star because breakfast was good and the room was clean.

We have stayed at the Heads Hotel before but this time we were a little disappointed with our room which had water damage on the ceiling and smelt damp. The carpet had a very large stain at the end of the bed and there was no sink in the bathroom. The linen and towels were white and clean with no... More

Stayed here randomly en route to Sydney for Lions test. What a find! Friendly welcome, excellent food and beer, room clean and spacious, good rates and an outstanding host Colin Waller. It was probably one of the most memorable stays of the whole trip having had a very lengthy and entertaining evening in the company of the host and a... More

We stayed here on the way to Sydney from Melbourne during the Lions rugby tour. One of the last decent place on the coast to stay before Sydney. Very friendly welcome. Excellent food. Great staff. Rooms are spacious and very clean. Very good value. Will definitely stay here next time in NSW.

A really great little pub. The staff are people and dog friendly and the outdoor seating was just what we were looking for. They have dog bowls available and the staff were lovely. We'll definitely be back when we come through the area again.

There is a new chef in town and his food is great. Ten of us spent a week at the camp site in Shoalhaven Heads and had two meals at the pub.Certainly the best place in town to eat. I am not sure how long he will stay here but as long as he does I would thoroughly recommend his... More

Our family headed for the beach after visiting Berry and the Coolangatta winery estate, and came upon what must be one of the best kept secrets on the south coast the Heads Hotel Motel .We had a superb mixed cold and hot seafood platter, and then made enquiries about accommodation for the night. Only one room available, and stayed in... More

we had the room connected to the kids 'playground'.. it was a branch-filled sand pit with a dinghy in the middle.. thats all. The room was filthy when we arrived with a stale-stench smell - it seemed the room hadnt been opened for quite a while. There was sand all around the living room as well as the bathroom. There...
