Fish of the day was Ling - fresh, good size & cheap, bit too much leafy salad though. Served by a very thoughtful waitress. The wind blew up so we missed out on eating on the deck which has a great view over two fold bay. Easy parking just below the deck. Very popular with the locals on a Friday... More

Good quality food cooked very well, accomodation clean and what you would expect for the price. Staff were very helpful and attentive, nothing was too much trouble, secure parking was provided on site. No breakfast provided but recommendations were offered according to taste

Really helpful staff, fantastic central location in Eden and cheap!!! Great place to stay for groups of friends and backpackers. Try and get a room with access to the balcony, you get great views up there. Comfortable and clean. Food was good lovely large portions.

We chose to stay here as we decided to try pub accommodation on our trip. This seemed like a central location and as there was thebistro below it was easy to have dinner and go upstairs to sleep. The room was small with a basic double bed, small refrigerator, TV and an en suite bathroom. The bed was cramped in... More

The room was very run down. No air con. No blinds/curtains to stop daylight coming in. Stains in sink, on carpet and scrapes on wall. Not dirty, just old and is desperate need of a refurb. Staff however were lovely and food was good. 2 stars because it was not a good night's sleep at all. Room so didn't come... More

I went for a meal which as far as steak goes was excellent-plus! I ate the rest at Balranald later as it was a man size steak but done perfectly and still enjoyed cold. I stayed at the Coachman's Inn which has recently changed ownership. Though a few hiccups I found them to be helpful and understanding. For me the... More

The rooms itself are nothing special, but they are clean and good of you just stay there for one night for a "stop over". The stuff is very friendly and the food is good. Downstairs there is also a pub inside, but this has no effect to the sleeping comfort, in fact everything is silent after the local "sleeping" times... More

We spent one night here on our way south, found it perfectly adequate and good value. The rooms are a bit run down, but clean and comfortable. We booked a room which opened onto the balcony and sat out there enjoying the lovely ocean views. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would stay there again.
