Location of this hotel is great. We waited a long time for our food. My wife ordered fish and chips, which were cold and the fish tough and tasteless. I ordered Po boy burger which was tasty and cold. Overall very disappointed in the service and food.

Came here today with my family for lunch. Had the ultimate steak & seafood meal for $38. Steak was underdone (asked for med-well and came out medium) I didn't really care, I just ate it cause i was hungry. Came with 1 scallop, 2 grilled prawns, salad was mostly lettuce and no chips. Went up to the counter to order... More

My husband and I come here most Sunday afternoons for a drink. It is a pleasant spot to sit in the afternoon sun at this time of the year. Autumn, Winter and Spring. In Summer there is usually a sea breeze and plenty of shade. The beer is cold and there is a chilled relaxed atmosphere. My one complaint is... More

The front bar is a disgrace. The toilets stink and the beer from the taps not much better. Have been here many times so speaking from experience. Staff not too bad though The food out the back bar/deck reasonable and a nice place to have a drink, but not overly cheap.

Standard bedrooms in a small motel/hotel that are looking quite tired, bathroom is outdated, and the walls are thin. There is a small fridge and a coffee maker and a balcony or porch at the back. The pool filter was not running and the pool was very dirty. The hotel is off a main road and was a bit hard... More

We (3 adults) stayed here overnight while visiting friends. The room was a little dated, but clean and had all the amenities we needed. The beds were comfortable. We had lunch in the restaurant- our seniors meals (steak, cottage pie and corned beef) were delicious, large in size and a bargain at $13 (with an extra discount for staying at... More

It was Valentines Day and upon arrival we found the wait staff were quite pleasant, and we were soon shown to our table overlooking the harbour. We ordered the seafood tower for two, and I felt the price was right for what we received. The food was ready promptly and it seemed quite fresh and tasty. There was one aspect... More
