We went there for pre-dinner drinks prior to dinner at Sea Salt. The drinks took approximately 20 minutes to arrive (given we ordered 4 cocktails and 2 x soft drinks, I was expecting these a lot quicker) The patronage was low and there seemed to be plenty of staff. The price of the cocktails mainly ranged between $17 and $22... More

This is such a nice place to have a quiet coffee, drink or afternoon tea with lovely views of Terrigal Beach. It is especially nice in winter when the fire is going. My only frustration is that on many occasions the lounge is closed for a private function, relegating you to a cramped and cold spot near the entry door... More

The best thing the Lord Ashley Bar has is the views of the beach, and they have lots of seating set up by the windows to make the most of it. I came with a friend for drinks in the afternoon, there were only a couple other people so it was nice and relaxing. Drinks are pretty pricey, but they... More

The Lord Ashley lounge overlooks the ocean and is decorated nicely. It also has a great fireplace that you can relax by when its a bit cool. The bar staff area a lot of fun and made some of the most elaborately decorated cocktails I have ever seen, very impressed.

I don't think the hotel looks after it's guests as far as this bar goes. If you order a cocktail there is always a wait as so many people are ordering cocktails in the evening, they need more experienced bar staff. I just think that the hotel should be enticing its guests to have a drink here by promoting great... More

As with everything else at this complex, the stunning view sets the scene for a positive experience. When I attended, there were at least two separate groups both booked to use the facility. The cross-over period was overly-busy and somewhat confusing. Bar staff were friendly and efficiently handled the crowd.

A totally different atmosphere to the Florida Bar. If you want a crowded noisy atmosphere, then stay downstairs, but if you want a relaxing quiet conversation, then the Lord Ashley is the place to be. Comfortable furniture and a very spacious setting, you never feel that you are part of someone else's conversation. Good food and service - perhaps pricy... More
