We arrived in the early evening after a long drive from Sydney. We'd booked a room in advance from Hay (via the marvel of smartphone technology). Our room was very spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was excellent (plenty of hot water and good pressure in the shower).
A good night's sleep and an excellent breakfast added to our feeling of wellbeing.
As recommended by our host, and several previous reviewers, the pub next door is a great place for dinner. It is now under new management and their country friendliness and hospitality augments the quality of their meals. We sat close to a wood fire and thoroughly enjoyed the legendary lamb shanks, washed down with a couple of glasses of very reasonable local reds, a shiraz and a merlot. It would be hard to find a better cooked version of the lamb shanks. The managers/staff go out of their way to ensure that their guests are well looked after. A choice between complimentary port or liqueur muscat completed a lovely meal.
Tooleybuc really is a quiet, friendly oasis by the Murray.
