Good price for a one night in a serviceable room with basket brekky thrown in. Rooms are basic and need some attention, but you're not paying top dollar. Great location and nice walks nearby, and pub food is excellent.

Working in the area and stayed here overnight. Rooms are basic but still clean and comfortable with everything you need. Hotel staff very friendly and happy to have a chat. The hotel is across the road from the water - beautiful location, would be magic in summer sitting in the outdoor area - enjoying a beer or two. Great restaurant... More

We spent 5 days at The Heads Hotel as we drove from Young on the day prior to the sewing camp starting. My wife sewed, I looked around an area that we used to live in 30 years ago and enjoyed the beauty of the Shoalhaven region. The Heads Hotel is 500m from the camp venue and very reasonably priced....

Worst hotel ever!! Can't drink beer unless you're a local. Very discriminating unless you're a drunk local watching the footy wow. It's a bit sad. Defiantly don't recommend to ANYONE passing through!!! Avoid this place at all costs!!!!!!

We found the staff friendly but were disgusted that they wouldn't serve the young people in the only room that our group didn't occupy breakfast as we were all eating ours so didn't seem a big ask to cook for 4 more. There were 17 of us. The rooms were were clean as was linen but very old and run... More

Today we arrived at 11:20am and were told that lunch would start in 20mins. We then went to bar to order and pay only to be told that acutally lunch wasnt till 12. Which is... More

A comfortable hotel stay that ticked all the boxes. The rooms are basic, at best, but clean and comfortable. Great views are from the front of the hotel of the Shoalhaven River and the Heads. Reception was located inside the hotel and the check-in process was prompt and efficient. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. A cooked breakfast was... More

Had dinner here with the family while on holiday. It seemed like a nice beer garden with the water view etc, and i was really hoping for some great pub food. I was disappointed. Meals were average. Schnitzel was ok, but very small. Works burger was ok, but not what i'd call a works burger and the bacon was undercooked.... More

Stayed at the motel on a Sat night and spent most of the day in the pub. Great location and very nice airy feel. The decor is great and it easily caters for the all with a good mix of locals, families and other groups. On a sunny day the front beer garden would be magic overlooking the water. Had... More

We eat here each year when we come to visit and are yet to be disappointed. Good selection and excellent food, you won't be disappointed when you eat here! We have tried just about everything on the menu now and there are no weak points, it's all great.
