Stayed at Gables Motor Lodge next door so we choose this pub for a drink as we could walk. Small simple pub with fireplace, sport on tv, a few pokies and a restaurant. Recommended especially if you are staying at Gables Motor Lodge.

We did not stay here but were recommended for their restaurant and it did not falter. The service was great and the food fabulous. We would definitely eat here again. I had the fillet steak which was large and cooked to perfection med = rare

This review is of the pub/hotel, and not the hotel where you would get a room. Although they are housed in the same place. My hotel recommended this place for dinner and a beer and it was close by. So I went in for a beer and dinner. It went like this: Me - "May I get a pint of... More

Recreation hotel isn't where you want to have your honeymoon, isn't where you want to have a business retreat- it is the place where you can crash after a long drive and get a decent night's sleep. When we pulled in my heart sank- i thought the place would be noisy, the rooms smokey. I was wrong. The room was... More

I have eaten in the restaurant out the back of the bar and... More

Have stayed here 3 times over past 3 months. Modest but clean & tidy units , warm and comfortable and reasonably priced. Restaurant meals are of a good standard, and value for money. Coast staff and management are friendly and helpful. Wifi.

The rooms are reasonably basic, but very clean, warm and tidy. Very quiet and I slept well. The food in the restaurant was excellent - better than I expected to be honest. I will also say, I left my work shirt when i checked out and they very kindly couriered it back to me free of charge. That's West Coast... More

Very busy Saturday night. Managed to get a table for four in restaurant. Food and service were excellent even though they were full. Each of us had a different meal and we were all impressed. Three courses including drinks was $50 each so good value too!

Its a very basic motel.. good location, on SH, has a Grocery/ Wine store adjoining it with a good restaurant - maybe the only restaurant in town. It had an eerie feeling to it... tho it had everything one would need - tea/coffee, Fridge, Clean Towels, Internet, TV and even a heater. Reception is the liquor shop :P! Unless u... More
