The need to escape from the daunting tourist crowds who flock like lemmings (or vultures) to world famous Bondi Beach is immediately satisfied by ducking in to the wonderful old Bondi Hotel, ordering a frosty schooner and relaxing as the passing parade surges by. This is the perfect oasis from the madness of Bondi, and the first place I would... More

Place looked lovely and they were doing happy hour and $15 weekday meals! Stood at the bar to order and were completely ignored so we moved to the other side of the bar thinking they only serve that side. As soon as we moved they started serving people where we had been previously standing! After another 5 minutes we finally... More

Was roaming around bondi and for so many years we go in there for a swimming, we never realised that Bondi Hotel bostro offers a good burger. I am a burger lover, so anywhere I go, I am always aiming to have a juicy burger. While staring at the menu we saw that they offer a burger, so we got... More

The hotel is in a good location right on Bondi Beach, but as far as the rooms and food, its very average. Its a very old hotel that is badly in need of renovations. The rooms and the rest of the hotel haven't seen paint for a very long time. Its like a backpackers pub in a good location. The... More

Nice location good atmosphere, cheap drinks, no views from bar though as there is a VIP section where all the ocean views are

If you do the hop on hop off bus from Sydney to Bondi Beach then time it to get to Bondi Beach for lunch. Make your way along he main shopping parade and you will come to the Bondi Beach Hotel on the street corner. Nice seating outside plus reasonable menu and nice choice of beers. Definitely a place to... More

Went in here for a meal after spending the day on the beach. It's situated almost directly across the street from the Pavillion. They have weekday specials which are served at certain times and cost AUD 15. Included in this is steak and mash with your choice of sauce which is the one I opted for. It was a decent... More

Pub style food is always nothing spectacular however, this is Bondi. Ordered chicken parmigiana, came out cold and tasted like it was reheated. No chicken salt either! When we consider paying $21 for a parmigiana and what you get, bad value for money. Probably wouldn't come back here even if I were starving and about to die. Would prefer to... More

Staying in Bondi Beach

Neighbourhood Profile
Bondi Beach
An iconic Australian suburb, Bondi Beach is famous for its fantastic beaches and views. Once the domain of backpackers, hundreds of tourists from all over the world descend en masse to Bondi in December ready to enjoy the "Aussie summer". Bondi Beach boasts impressive ocean views all along the many restaurants and bars on Campbell Parade. Wake up early and take a dip in the surf before walking the scenic stretch from Bondi to Coogee Beach. Stroll through the Saturday organic markets in North Bondi or grab some fish and chips and relax in the grassy area opposite the beach. For more upscale cuisine, head down to Hall Street where a range of new eateries have recently opened. Just make sure to save enough energy for the buzzing nightlife Bondi Beach has to offer.
