We stayed in the hotel overnight so it was easy to use their restaurant, very busy pub type restaurant, order at the counter and meals delivered. Very tasty food, we had lamb shanks and chicken.

Arriving early, we relaxed in the busy bar in very comfy chairs, staff were friendly and helpful. On entering the busy Bistro area, You order and collect at a serving area (no waited service), ordering was easy and efficient, taking a buzz-tag for when your meals are ready for collecting. There are a good variety of meals on offer and... More

We went up to order and my partner who has dietary needs wanted lamb cutlets, alas they put garlic in the crumbs , I put lemon rind and Parmesan in crumbs but never garlic so she had the Wednesday steak special. I had the king chicken and avo. Both meals were fantastic. The reason for 3 stars? Not many people... More

Our meals were good, well presented and very tasty. The kids meals looked as if they were just slapped up from frozen nuggets and a cheese burger. Food... More

I stayed here with my husband for a 2 night stay in Dubbo. I purchased our stay here on a 'Deal' so the price was greatly reduced. The location was excellent for attractions, restaurants and shops. Our room was a Delux room and I have to say there wasn't much that was Delux about it, that term is used far... More

Lined up for 25 minutes to place a dinner order here recently. The staff member who took the order advised of a 45 minute wait, but meals only took about 30 minutes. Meals were good for pub grub, but menu could be improved by adding a few lighter options. One of our group needed a gluten free option and this... More
