Stopped in Deloraine for lunch today and surprised to happen upon Empire's pub menu. Surprisingly interesting food. The lamb kofta was both substantial and tasty. Side of chips with garlic aeoli nice too. Halloumi salad, gourmet burger (with Angus beef & blue cheese), and plenty more to try another time. Delicious and clearly a spot for locals and visitors alike.

The Empire Hotel certainly does nice meals and the staff were indeed very pleasant. The hotel itself is very clean and tidy, but my quibble with it was that the booking page did not make it crystal clear that the bathroom would be shared, so I was kind of taken by surprise by that when we arrived. Other than that,...

First day in Deloraine and walking up the Main Street when a very polite guy who was placing flags outside the hotel invited us in and suggested they had the best meal in town. We finished our walk and decided to take him up. We had a meal that evening and it was exceptional. Mark and his wife were the...

The hotel is right in the heart of town and easy walk to discover the delights of this lovely town in Tasmania. Our room was extremely comfortable and dinner was delicious. A shared bathroom but it was spotless and the size of a ballroom!

Here is a place to stay if you need a little friendly local chat while chilling having a beer and dinner. Mark and his crew made you feel welcomed. Room upstairs was very comfortable. It's not for everyone to have shared bathrooms,but the common room with telly and breakfast is good to meet other guests staying. Meal was great.

Stopped in here for a bit of a pick me up on our way home after a long day shopping in Launceston. It was pretty late in the day, so rather than coffee decided to have a lady behind the counter said she didn't have much experience making them , but she did a great job. Service was great and...

Dinner here is the place to be. Chef is happy to change your side dishes and you end up just what you felt like to eat. Menu really mixed and caters for all tastes. It was delicious, well presented and I could not eat it fast enough, hubby as well. Service delightful. Highly recommend this venue when in Deloraine.

Menu is not good at all. Not a very big variety. Food was not very nice. Opening hours are limited. Fire place was nice and cosy. Needs a little up dating of the decor. Not overly child friendly. We would not be in a hurry to return.

We had a twin room on the 3rd floor, adjacent to a lovely covered verandah which was a great place to chill out. The room was very comfortable, and the complementary brekkie in the morning was appreciated. We didn't eat there for dinner, however when we arrived back at the bar we were lucky enough to see a visiting jazz...
