We booked ahead for dinner.Staff seemed uninterested. Drinks order took ten minutes.We knew something was wrong when so many others were served meals before us. We waited an hour for dinners which was cold and the pork belly severely burned on the bottom. Kids meals excellent but overall a mist disappointing experience indeed and will never return

A gaol cell would be bigger, no air-con, no TV. Stifling hot when only 34 outside. Don't get a single room there. A cabin in the caravan park is much better. You expect noise in a pub but not so loud that you can hear through ear plugs. Even main bar area isn't air-conditioned. Wow, so bad.

A cute little pub with awesome live music and a lovely outdoors area. Didn't order food but enjoyed the atmosphere. The building itself is very nice and the bathroom has been nice and clean all the times I've been!

Travelling with 2 kids we wanted somewhere near the sea and this could not have been closer!! The beautifully appointed cottage opened out onto a lawn and a private path directly onto the beach. Tucked away behind the pub it was also in the middle of town so an easy walk in the morning to the bakery. We stayed here...

My husband and I shared a Seafood Platter in the Dining Room. The platter was excellent with prawns, scallops, oysters, fish, mussels and crayfish pate. The chef should have checked the mussels prior to leaving kitchen as 2 mussels had not opened. Otherwise excellent dish. Down side to our dinner was the untrained staff. We were given no water, did...

This historic seaside pub is centrally located with rooms upstairs from the bar and restaurant area and also four “Cottages by the Sea” which are four attached two story townhouses. We stayed in the cottage closest to the beach (No. 4) which has a sea view from upstairs. The roomy upstairs consisted of a very comfortable queen bed with two...

Seriously awful, paid $27 for a seafood basket, the salt and pepper squid had absolutely no hint of salt and pepper flavour. Squid was as rubbery as hell, all the crumbs had fallen off and the squid rings were weirdly all joined together. The prawns and scallops were nothing to rave about and the fish tasted like fish fingers. BUT...

We heard new managers took over the Cally just over a year ago at the end of 2015 and were doing a fantastic job. So welcoming and very caring, nothing was too much. If you want to be away from pub noise, then simply book in one of the cottages (see their website) instead of a room above the pub,...

I slept in this really pretty inn for one night with two other people. The whole building is pretty unique, especially the rooms. The staff was very professional and warm. Everything was clean and simple at the same time. It was a real pleasure to stay there.

Stayed here in Hotel Room 5 on a Saturday night in April. Typical historically old two stores stone hotel ... A very clean pub double bedroom with a flat screen TV and views of the sea. Beautiful warming sun streaming in the morning ... wonderful. Room was very quiet after dinner service finished down below. The bed was very comfortable...

“Rooms are small, comfortable and a bit rustic. There are shared bathroom facilities but don't let this put you off. The facilities are all brand new and sparkling clean. There is also a balcony which house guest can use for meals and drinks with a beautiful view over the ocean.”
