I came here with my partner for lunch on a Saturday afternoon.
The drive up was lovely and once we arrived, there was plenty of seating space to choose from to drink or eat. We ordered a pizza, buffalo wings and onion rings with dips for $27! We also got 2 pints for $18. We were pleasantly surprised with the pricing considering it is out in the middle of nowhere (the place doesn't even have mobile reception).
There were lots of kids running around playing basketball, soccer, riding bikes and scooters. Such a relaxing place to go to. It would be even nicer when the pool gets uncovered and is in operation.
The historical documents and items around are so interesting and it is amazing to see such history. We saw the guest book which had signatures from 1912!
Next time we will definitely stay here. The only reason we didn't was because it was booked out!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- We are a heritage listed hotel, originally built for the workers and visitors to the nearby Mundaring Weir back in 1898. Less than 1 hour from the heart of Perth, the Hotel provides the perfect venue for a social outing. Dine in the downstairs coffee shop (weekends), the historic Duke and Duchess dining room, or in the Tree-Tops restaurant overlooking the amphitheater where regular summer concerts boast music from jazz to popular rock bands. The grounds provide the perfect chilled atmosphere, and there is something to do for kids of all ages. Explore history, and browse the artifacts collected over the 30 years that the Hotel has been in the hands of the current owner, Jens Jorgensen. The Hotel offers many opportunities to experience the regions natural beauty. We are at the center of many trails meandering through the state forest and around the Weir. Two new walk trails established by the National Trust give a wonderful interpretation of the Weir and its surroundings as you walk. The 963.1 kilometer Bibbulmun track goes past the Hotel, with the terminus 15 kilometers away in Kalamunda. Mundaring Weir Hotel celebrates Sundays with a traditional lamb spit roast, wood fired pizzas and a seasonal counter meal menu. Live music is also a regular Sunday offering, with one of our three resident bands. The bush band or pop-folk music is popular with young and old alike. The Hotel features 10 motel-style rooms that are tucked away amid the gardens, overlooking either the forest or the grounds. All feature reverse cycle air conditioning, TV/DVD, microwave and small fridge. Choose from twin or double rooms, and some have bunk beds allowing up to four people per room. Every room has an open fireplace with supplied firewood (in season) to make for a wonderfully romantic getaway. ... more less
