I have stayed at the Tavern many times - the accommodation is cheap but I have no idea why - the rooms are great. They are clean, spacious and quiet. And the food at the tavern is hearty and awesome. I took my mother with me one time, and her dietary requirements were met for her meal with no fuss or problems. It's actually quite a buzz staying there on a State of Origin night - with the border so close, there was a great mix of both QLD and NSW supporters there to watch the game and encourage some friendly banter and rivalry! I highly recommend the Tavern!
