Good meals at reasonable prices from courteous and helpful staff. This old hotel has obviously been renovated in recent times while still maintaining many of the old features. It is located near Victoria Barracks and next to the Arts Hotel. Because of its name, it is known as "The Three Weeds Hotel"

It's a very big place, with a restaurant called The 3 Weeds, what seemed like a function room as well as the space we were in which I think was called the Back Bar. It was packed, being just prior to Christmas, but our... More

The food was reasonably priced and tasty. The decore could do with a bit of TLC. Not a great atmosphere. But definitely convenient to the Arts Hotel.

Had the best beef burger under $20. Tasty beef patty and great fresh salad, the side fries were crisp and cooked in fresh oil. Meal was complimented with a nice selection of tap beer. The barman was friendly and professional.
