We visited as a large family group & were told we would wait for an hour for food. Happy to wait as we were occupied with our group, however, it certainly wasn't worth the wait. Who can ruin cheese and ham pizza? Kids schnitzel & chips? Nothing, except the chips were edible. We then, starving, ordered ice cream, only for...

Rooms needs a good clean & maintenance. Toilet leaks, shower drips, blinds don't work, no spoon to stir coffee. No information about motel or area. Air cond was filthy and extremely noisy. No reception to check in, just go to the sports bar, where the staff don't know how to check you into a room!!! If we had only been...

Dropped by for a bite to eat & drink. A great place in a great spot. Although a bit tired looking on the outside, the inside is modern & spacious. The decor is great, with entertainment, bar & restaurant. Food was very good & staff were very pleasant. Good to see the outside clearly separates the smoking & eating areas.

Loved my stay. Loved that it was dog friendly. Loved that there was a 24hr off leash dog beach across the road. You could easily spend all day around the area. Riding bikes, walking, hangin with your dog, kayaking. An awesome stay and holiday for dog lovers!

We stopped here on the way south from Sydney for an evening meal. I tried the Monday steak special for $12.50. It was tasty and good value for the money. My wife had the beef pie which she enjoyed. It was what we expected from a seaside pub restaurant. What was amazing was the sunset views at the front of...

Old fashioned room but comfy and clean. Across the room from the Shoalhaven River and view to the beach from the sofa outside the room, or when standing up in the room, or from the outdoor eating area. We were in unit 7 which had a double bed and 2 singles (all pushed against the walls) with flat pillows; you...

Room was basic but has most of what was needed ( microwave would be nice ), breaky basket was a nice add. Neat & tidy & plenty of room for me & my two dogs. Having the dogs allowed inside was a big bonus & there are plenty of grassy areas for a nice walk. Had dinner at the bistro...

On holidays! Been there for drinks only. Tonight we decided to eat there. Hmmm! Big mistake! The staff are fantastic! The venue is great! The locals are friendly! But the food is crap!! I'll spare you the details, but I had 2 spoons of my seafood chowder and I pushed it away. My husband is a little more forgiving ate...
