“A horrible night's sleep!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

A terrible, tiny room without even a phone! The bed's were so uncomfortable and the noise from the pub downstairs kept us up all night! I had to sleep on the single bed because the double was too small for me and my husband! The bathroom was too small for someone who is not anorexic. A hostel would have been better! No service! Stay away! We could hear drunk people screaming all night and chanting!I couldn't wait to get home! No remote controls or proper heating!

Room Tip: Stay away from the cheaper rooms! They are awful!

I cannot warn you enough this pub/bistro was the final stop of a family day trip, we decided to have lunch there only to be faced with paying $28 for fish and chips, now we had a desicion to make stay or leave we took a chance and hoped that the high meal price would deliver exceptional service and high food quality, well what we should have done was visit the local fish and chip shop pay $6 for fish and chips and eat in the carpark. Food was nothing less than packet fish and packet chips, the service was non exsistant we felt robbed and realised why the place was empty on a sunny Sunday arvo. Give it a miss drive ten minutes further down the road to Queenscliffe and eat there.

Room Tip: Dont even consider eating at this place.

Decided to head down to the coast for the weekend and booked into the pub. To be honest wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised. The room was comfortable in a great location. Decided to eat in the bistro and found the Chicken parma to be one of the best I have had, the beer was cold with a good variety and the service was good. A great place to visit will definitely head back in the summer.

We stayed there over a weekend- in standard rooms.
You could hear nearly every word/scream from gaming rooms underneah. Then it started entertaintment ( concert) till I guess midnight, then clearing/tiding up/bashing stuff till 2 am. Extremely loud!!!
And there's an old loud compressor near the window- still working, unfortunatelly.
And view- rusted compressor, roofs and washing on a line.
Sagging bed, power break-ups.
WEEKEND FROM HELL!!!
When booking- ask for room with the view and don't go there over weekend.

Old line: "Can't complain about the service tonight - there was none!"

From the bar maid, to the male attendant, to the manager, I've never had such atrocious service in 15 mins of 'attempting' to get a bottle of Riesling.

Will not be back... No matter what.

We stayed here last night for a wedding, and I was pleasantly surprised at the room and facilities. We had a double bed with a beach view, which was bigger than expected. There is a kitchenette, ensuite bathroom and television. We were very happy!
It suited us, as we were out for most of the night at the party, but for people who are looking for something quiet, this probably isn't the place for you, as the pub downstairs can be pretty rowdy on a Saturday night! But the rooms are closed off from the public, so it is quite secure, and not as loud as you would expect!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 2, which was on the top corner, but all the rooms seem to be located away from the...
