Was down in penrith recently for my brothers funeral, and i found this place to be a great convenient place to stay, all the normal things u would expect from a motel, plus the benenfit of a fully equipped traditional hotel, with great food, fantastic service, all at affordable prices,

Great cheap pub food. Fantastic play area for the kids. Has a nice "old pub" feel - but there are plans for renovation in the future. We go here for often lunch on a Sunday. Our favourite is the snitzel burger and chips. So good, highly recommended :)

Honest aussie tucker for $5 plus any add-ons makes this a great deal. We usually add mushrooms & baked beans for an extra $2. Why go to Maccas when you can sit, eat with a knife & fork, and maybe even have a drink. Saturdays & Sundays from 10 to 12.

Had a nice pub lunch here today. Service was spot on, lunches delivered to the table which is always a good thing. Great for families nice clean play area attached. Definitely worth trying. The pub is quite run down could do with a facelift.

This is located right near a main road in Penrith, and is attached to a pub which is known for its rowdiness and drunken shenanigans. I wouldn't recommend staying here unless you need something fairly cheap and aren't worried about being kept up all night long.

$5 breakfast was great, have paid more money for way worse breakfasts. Our only problem was staffing - we stood there for a few minutes waiting to be served while two people stood behind the bar talking even once they had seen us. Would prefer to be served without having to ask for it.

Booked two nights as it is walking distance to family. The air con in our room was deafening to the point we decided to sweat in our sleep than put up with it. We couldn't even hear our toddler crying over the noise at times. The only other gripe was that the vertical blinds pointed 100 different directions and some... More

Well located adjacent to major food store, fast food and fuel on major arterial road. Own bistro provides tasty reasonably priced meals whilst sleep quality was quiet and comfortable. Plenty of parking available and neither suburb or the hotel clients live down to the stereo image often portrayed.

Here for a regatta but don't like Penrith much, however the place is relatively near the regatta centre and thus convenient. Room is basic and I had to give a $20 deposit on my key! I had to leave at 5am so was forced to return later in the day to redeem the cash. Archaic or what!! Being next to... More
