Beer prices are a real turn off-it really is that simple. Booze is expensive at the best of times and when Australia goes thru a recession, places like this will be the first casualty.

Well situated, big meals area. Menu is ok but has limited gluten free options which detracts from the appeal of this place as our family requires gluten free. Would provide better score with more gluten free options. Good bar, friendly staff.

My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic meal from the "Seniors" Menu at this hotel recently. The Seniors menu offers many choices ranging from Roast of The Day, Calamari, Fish & Chips and many other selections. The full menu offered and even greater range, all at what I would consider to be reasonable prices. The Seniors meal was especially well... More

We went here for my parents birthday and we got a table near the kids play area so the kids ran rampant in the play area while the adults enjoyed their meal. The food was good. Chips were tasty and thr southern fried chicken burger hit the spot. I would go back.

OK dinner great refurbishment of the hotel. Spend all the money on a great refurbishment but no money for new plates ruins the whole feel.Mushroom sauce needs mushrooms in it to call mushroom sauce

How often can the restaurant reservation manager get your booking wrong. It would seem every time! After several attempts to eat here we have received really poor service! Rude and disorganised. Quite simply go elsewhere where you can book ahead and ensure your preferred seating.

We travelled 2 hours to have lunch here. A little disappointing as food was just ok. Not a lot of flavour. Very quick and friendly service though and very family friendly... huge kids playroom. Atmosphere was casual and relaxed so that good.

Not any more, the only reason this place survives over priced food... More

Christmas Day lunch at the Lower Plenty Hotel was the best we've had at a hotel in a number of years. It was well organised, a delicious meal and GREAT service from all the staff. Thanks to all!
