OK, so the hotel has paint peeling in places, the carpet doesn't always match, the corridor walls just have primer on them, the rooms have stand-alone heaters, and are pretty basically furnished, but it's clean, comfortable and full of rustic country pub charm and atmosphere. The hotel is situated at the Melbourne end of Warburton on the Warburton Hwy, with... More

Our first impressions of this hotel was of a sticky floor through the TAB, that smelt a little funny to book a room. It was really late, we were tired, and didn't really feel we had much of a choice, so we decided to brave it anyhow. We paid extra for the "Room with the ensuite". Which was a very... More

This delightfully old hotel is full of charm with lovely high ceilings, a beautiful wooden staircase and comfortable lounge areas. There are fabulous Yarra river views from the front rooms and the hotel is only a hundred or so metres from the Warburton shops and cafes. It's exceptionally clean and the staff we met were always helpful. The walk along... More

We certainly enjoyed our stay at this charming old pub which is currently being refurbished. Colin, our host was charming, friendly and helpful, offering advice on the attractions of Warburton and nearby. The pub is in walking distance to the town where we found some interesting and tempting shops and cafés. We also took a river walk starting off from... More

I don't even know how to describe it. Being hosted very close to Warburton, we were recommended to go to this restaurant as it was not very fancy. We were advised of the decoration, but what we saw was unexpected. Was I travelling in time to the 70s? I had never seen so old furnishing and decoration on a restaurant.... More

We went on 25 Jan for dinner. The place was busy and service was great. We ordered lamb roasts as the extensive menu might take awhile, we thought. We enjoyed the delicious roast lamb, hot roasted potatoes, pumpkin, carrots, broccoli and cauliflower. Plus a serve of mint sauce in a small plate. We were thoroughly impressed and we stayed on...

We arrived for a Saturday lunch with two Irish travelling friends without a booking. The food was great, service quick and friendly, and the kookaburras added to the lovely experience of eating on the terrace. The men's toilet was antiquated but clean, as was the ladies.

You would think they would be prepared for cup weekend tourists. The food took over an hour to arrive. However the meal was tip top. Shame, I wouldn't come back because of the poor service. If you do come be prepared to wait a long time. Decor wise it is an old style pub but nothing flash.

We spent a beautiful Autumn weekend in Warburton at the head of the Yarra River - the views were spectacular! Unfortunately we ate on both nights at this Hotel. The first night (Friday) we ordered their specials and I had the twice cooked Pork. It was inedible, with a slab of white fat under the un-crisp crackling. We waited over... More
