“The pub with no steak”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012 via mobile

We ordered a pizza and a rib fillet only to be told the pub was completely out of ALL dinner steaks. Rib fillets, t-bone and rump. Instead we were offered two 'lunch' steaks, but only one came on the plate, they needed a reminder. The pizza was yum but the crust was charcoal.
The service was friendly.
Considering how basic the meals are it's a bit overpriced.
We used to love coming to the pub and considered it our local, we'd take friends and family there. So we were very disappointed on a recent visit to find it had gone downhill so much.
Next time we're back in town, we'll try another haunt.

“Gone downhill bigtime”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2012

When we first moved to Bundaberg 7 years ago you couldn't beat the seafood platters at the Bargara Beach Hotel Motel. Massive platters for two people - piles of fresh, tasty seafood for $50. A large and varied salad, vege and pasta bar was complimentary with most main meals. The woodfired pizzas were divine. The place was so popular, the lineup was at times out the front door and onto the verandah.

Those were the days. Since then the place gradually descended in stages into the depressing state it currently languishes in. First they canned the seafood platter, then they dropped the salad bar. Both seriously impacted our opinion of the place, but we still went there albeit less often. We've waited with friends who ordered fish and chips for lunch for over an hour and a half before they asked for a refund and left hungry. The pizza chef is an angry, angry man. God help any customer who tries to communicate with the pizza chef - I've seen him blast a few people. I've ordered a rump steak medium rare and got an inedible blue steak - still cold in the centre. I complained and the waitress offered us a free dessert as an apology. Nice dessert at least.

We haven't been there since last year and don't plan to unless we're dragged there.

“Dont stay here”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012 via mobile

I thought when I booked online that I had a reservation at the motel next door with a similar name but that it the only similarity. The rooms are DISGUSTIING! I had to wrap three towels around the pillow as it was filthy. The power outlets don't work. The fire smoke detector is hanging broken from the ceiling. The curtains don't shut and the aircon changes temp by itself. There is nowhere to put your toiletries as the sink is just that- a vintage rusty sink. There is nowhere to eat takeaways as there is no table or chairs. It was cheap booked through wotif but not worth even that. This is a Coles leased motel and the owner won't let them renovate as he doesn't want competition for his other holiday resort. I would not have stayed except for a very tight budget.
