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

Room 19 is a single bed room with two windows - one view out towards the ocean. This is an old style Aussie pub with small rooms and shared amenities (toilet, shower, tea making, TV, power point). I couldn't fault it for the price of $49. Staff friendly as were other visitors. It is very basic and old fashioned (perhaps... More

The price does not reflect the accomodation. At this price level the rooms should all be clean, with clean sheets, freshly painted, dust free and with some decor. We were handed the keys for room 12 which had stained sheets and the carpets in the place need an overhaul. No Air conditioning so a stay in summer would be out... More

The grand hotel isn't grand...its not a hotel in any sense other than the traditional Ozzy pub....this is an old pub with backpacker accommodation upstairs. Saturday night, the band plays til after midnight and young local scallywags run around with no clothes on...at least the night we stayed. The rooms are BASIC. Having said that, the bed (only furniture in... More

Had the Sunday roast which was an dnormous serving of pork, potatoes and pumpkin. Ive no idea why there were no greens, but the rest of the meal was pretty good value. Plus they had 150 lashes PA on tap so thats always a bonus.

Bathrooms dirty and taps missing, other patrons smoking in the common areas, and outside the window the amount of cigarette butts tells you it happens a lot, men were also using the female amenities', and the barrier around the stairs at our door way was very dangerous, cant believe it passes legal requirements

We didn't stay there, but as our boutique motel was boring we wandered over to the grand to hang out for the evening and it was good. Nice old world building, good selection of drinks - the televisions were placed to that they were not visible and audible throughout the place, there was a lounge with comfortable seating, the locals...
