“Very small but adequate”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

Biult in 1934 as a guest house, it had character and charm. It was our first visit , for 1 night only, and we chose a standard room. $140. It was the smallest room we have ever stayed in, overlooked the car park and close to the railway. Plainly decorated but spotless ,as was everything we saw. There was a double bed [ we have a king size] with a rock hard mattress [AGONY] 1 chair,1 bedside table and lamp,a single robe, and small tv, plus tea making stuff. The bathroom was equally tiny, and the sliding door... very dodgy as there was no floor track for control.But BLISS!! The radiator had warmed the room on a freezing wet day and stayed on all night! Our evening meal in the classy dining room was very good, excellent service and an adequate menu. Sadly we could not stay to sample the extensive array of desserts as we an appointment to keep. Disapponting really.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get a decent size room, and overlook the golf course

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

We stayed here for two nights and were impressed with the cleanliness and uniqueness of this establishment. Our only "complaint" would be that the double-room we stayed in was very small and in addition, the bed had an electric blanket under the sheet and the wires dug into our bodies while trying to sleep. We fixed this by placing the duvet over the "wires" and that solved the problem. We left early and came back late, so we did not try the restaurant. We got a deal online for the room, so I'm sure they have more spacious rooms for a bit more money. Our friends were surprised at the deal we received for a room here. We liked the charm of the older building, and no amenities were lacking.

Room Tip: Their double room was smallish, so go with a larger room.

Travelling interstate we decided to stay again at Dormie House. Lovely room and facilities however this time the restaurant was a big letdown. Staff would have been better suited to working at McDonalds and were of the age to do so. No idea of table service. We should have guessed things were amiss when served bread rolls which were warm to the touch but still frozen inside. We hadn't finished our entree when the main meal arrived and was plonked down onto the table with a giggle and "sorry". The bottle of wine was simply plonked onto the table already opened. The main itself was tough, undercooked and cold because the plates hadn't been heated. We'd stay at Dormie House again but next time would walk the short distance to the Golf Club for a meal.

Dormie House is a lovely hotel, perfect for a weekend away and no doubt a great spot if you're a keen golfer seeing as it's located right on the golf course. We had a front-facing corner room which was spotlessly clean, quiet, well-appointed, with a lovely large modern bathroom. Dinner in the restaurant was superb - far better than many Sydney restaurants and moderately priced by comparison. Likewise breakfast was hearty, country style. Great spot to stay - highly recommend it - even though it is a bit pricey it's worth it.

Old world dormitory-style wooden building means creaky floorboards and no air conditioning but comfortable accommodation. We booked a standard room via Wotif for only $110 a night and, while very small (double bed only), it was comfortable. I would not however, want to pay the full price of $199! We did not eat at the restaurant so cannot comment. Situated right on the golf course it obviously makes for a good golfing weekend getaway.
