North Gregory Hotel
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Winton
Reviewed October 2, 2013

The sign out front said renovated rooms, it wasn't. The room was quite small and the bathroom old. The fridge wasn't on when we walked in and the "wall rattler" A/c did just that. I had to turn it off during the hot night to try to sleep. When I compare what I paid for the night with other country accommodation at the same price, this place falls short. Was also not impressed with the loud drunk at the bar who told someone inquiring about a meal with the bar staff that he was [--] and would not get a feed anywhere now as everything would be shut. The meal I had was OK, but it seemed they were "out" of more things than they had available.

The public rooms have been renovated and are ok. The beer garden was pleasant enough and the meal we had was good but the rest of the hotel is a shambles. Rooms upstairs are partially renovated. We were unlucky enough to have one which still had its 1950's bathroom. The new decor is dispiriting and quite disfunctional. Plugs in peculiar places no real thought to guests comfort so no bedside lamp or tables. Blood red furnishings in an already very dark room with cream and electric blue paintwork was a nightmare. The outside balcony was filthy with strings of dirty washing drying. We had booked through Booking .com site and both that and the hotel site imply that bathrooms are gleaming white porcelain. I wish!

This hotel is a surprising oasis in a some what featureless outback. The staff are friendly and helpful the food in the restaurant is good and the bar & hotel has a art decko look about it. The rooms are comfortable although dated somewhat. It has all the room necessities and more including free Wi-Fi, A/C,TV etc. A pleasant surprise if your not looking for 5 star in the back of nowhere.

This hotel had friendly staff who were more than happy to assist in any way. The rooms were clean, cool and the bed was a dream to sleep on. The restaurant was accommodating with my food allergies and intolerances and the quality of the food was second to none. It was not a modern hotel but a fine example of hotels in the grand tradition of days gone by. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Winton.

My iPad ran out of power while I was writing my review of this extremely second rate accomodation and I hadn't added that the restaurant was excellent. We had 3 very good meals there. Congratulations to the chef, great job!! I'm sure there is other accomodation in Winton which could not be any worse but eat here, it is surprisingly good.

Stayed: August 2013

The balconies were filthy with cigarette buts on the floor and the room was not cleaned any of the 3 days of our stay. The bathroom was worse than any camping ground with communal facilities I have stayed in. There was a typed excuse for this about refurbishment but that does not excuse cobwebs up the walls of the shower. The "artwork" decoration beggars belief.
