We always rely on going to the local pub for a good meal and great atmosphere. The dinning room closed early. But opened again with a very bling and limited menu. Parma was over fried and microwaved to melt the tiny sprinkle of cheese on top of the jar of tomTo paste....I think I've got the message through! No vegetables,... More

There are a lot of reasons why I would not recommend this Hotel to stay! I booked this accommodation for myself and my twelve year old daughter. I accept I didn't read reviews til the night before. I didn't realise that it was shared showers and toilets and requested a room next to them, which they did. But the room... More

This hotel and studios (in which I stayed) could do with a bit of an update. But it was cheap and you get what you pay for. It was all a bit drab and smelt musty. Try and avoid ANZAC day - it got a bit noisy sleeping behind the pub. Can't fault the location though. This is a beautiful... More

When we checked in, it took a while for to get served by staff, Rooms had mould on the ceiling. Hot water in the showers was pretty much non existent, no screen on the windows, Also we had to request to change rooms as there were no power points (needed a power point for our sleep (CPAP) machine,

Rooms terrible for the price. Stayed one night - stopover on the way to Sydney 2 adults and 2 children. Room consisted of just beds in very small room. We had one double, two singles. Very old hotel, needs a major makeover. Hallways stunk of beer but I guess that is to be expected being above a pub. The communal... More

I was ignored by staff while I was standing there asking to organise accommodation, while they rushed to serve everyone at the bar alcohol. There were three staff and I had to ask all three of them before I was finally served. Live band playing extremely loudly until midnight. Beds flimsy and creaky to a scary degree. Room hot and...

My experience was shocking. Hot water tap in shower seized. Very warm night so windows open but no screens. Last straw I stepped on minute shard of glass that pierced the sole of my foot on wooden floorboards. Left a note for management but no response. I will not include the photo of the wound out of consideration for readers.

This place was beyond terrible. We walked in and discovered it was literally just a room with beds crammed in. There was no air con, no fan, one powerpoint, the window was broken and being held up by a (also broken) table lamp. It was disgustingly hot. We didn't even pull back the covers before we decided we couldn't stay.... More

went in here with a large group following a function. The place was packed, was extremely stuffy and hot. Good atmosphere. Large outdoors area. Band playing on the Saturday night. A good local. Certainly worth dropping in for one '!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I stayed here with three friends for one night. Our room had two bunk beds and a sink. The window unfortunately faced into the building so the light was through a sun roof. The communal showers were decent with good water pressure and relative cleanliness. I would have much rather stayed on a cold night, because the room was extremely... More
