This is about the food and not the motel itself because I didn't stay in it. A fantastic place to go and eat. You can purchase a $10 Chicken Schnitzel with chips and salad here and you will be satisfied with the quality! Hungry and want something to eat on a budget? Then come here.

We went there for lunch and the meals were great, staff were friendly, kid friendly in the beer garden and great prices. Great schnitzel and mushroom sauce. Basic scenery but it works. If you want a fine dining experience go elsewhere, if you want good pub grub go here!!

The beer is cold, the food is pub food but it is ok. They have a $10 special steak, chips and salad which again is ok. Watch for their music though it seems to be a great selection. Overall just an average pub.

If your over paying for a plate of spinch leaves with a side of steak in over priced cafes this pub has the best $10 lunches and on weekends as well. A good selection for the $10 menu with free choice of sauces. A tasty salad and crunchy chips or vege if that is your choice goes with the meal...

Straight to the point, if you want a good meal then try this venue. Plenty of $10 options on the menu. I had the salt and pepper squid with chips and salad, very tasty. Plenty on the plate. Decor simple, but functional. Location good, with adequate parking. Open air, with covering in case of rain. View of river street, watch...

I decided I want a wholesome meal for dinner so I headed to the Slipway Hotel. It serves typical pub food with some really good specials. I opted for a 300g sirloin steak with mash and veges and it was just what I wanted. Food was cooked the way I liked it. Service was quick and sitting near an outside...

We didn't plan our journey well enough to give great thought about where we were staying on our road trip and this was during a busy weekend for tourists, Slipway Hotel Motel had a vacancy. Hooray! We booked online from around the corner but when we got there, we couldn't find the reception, just the disheveled backyard of the hotel....

This hotel has street frontage so you can watch the world go by. Warm day so sitting in front outdoor area with the sea breeze was lovely. Several $10 lunch options are great value. Rump, chicken schnitzel etc all served with salad & chips and choice of sauce. Quick, cheap, easy & relaxed. Would definitely go back.

My room was well appointed in a block behind the hotel toward the river. It was quiet and a short walk to the shops I wanted to visit. Clean. Had dinner in the hotel restaurant. I chose the Atlantic salmon, which was nicely cooked..
