Ticks all the boxes!

This is my favourite place to have a nice drink after a long working week. Beautiful views over Terrigal Beach, friendly staff, comfy lounge seating and a great drink selection but best of all it is a perfect place to have a drink and chat with friends as it is nice and quiet.

For some reason over a public holiday the hotel have enforced a rule that no drinks could be served in the lounge without a main meal purchase. We were not allowed to just sit and have a cocktail without ordering food. Very disappointing!

Hi Gwenstyle, Sorry that no one on the day explained the reason behind why food has to be bought. It is actually a requirement by law that alcohol can't be served on Good Friday unless a main meal is also consumed with it. Unfortunately we have no choice but to comply. Christmas day also falls under this same law. Every... More

We came here on Saturday after having dinner at Seasalt just next door. We met friends here and it was my first time visiting despite multiple dinners at Seasalt. We had a great time here and found the lounge to be very spacious and easy to talk with friends. There was a large choice in beverage and enjoyed the tall... More

Hi Kym C, Thanks for telling us about your time with us here at Lord Ashley. We definitely have a lot going on most weekends with weddings, high teas and general socialising in the bar, so we definitely don't like to promote a quiet environment when we have upwards of 100 people in the bar. Also after a wedding group... More

After brunch at Aromas (downstairs) we (6 of us) ventured upstairs to assist on of our party feed a 7 week old baby in a bit of comfort.

We were staying at Crown Plaza so was an obvious choice. We enjoyed the food. The dishes were large and we ended up on our second visit only ordering one dish to share. The prices were competitive and even the wine was well priced. We were served by great staff and a lovely experience.

Bar staff have no idea how to make cocktails, had to look up recipe and then served it up tasting nothing like it should. Tasted terrible. Very expensive, but after waiting 15 minutes was in too much of a hurry to complain or send it back. Never will I be back.
