This hotel is modern and everything is clean and welcoming. The food however is not as good I would have expected and is a little overpriced for what it is.

Came here last week when on holidays at rainbow beach - without really knowing what to expect as I hadn't read the menu or reviews.

Will definitely be back! My son... More

Typical local Pub meals and setup. Unfortunately no views or atmosphere to it. The Surf Club has got them!

Terrible service - apparently no fresh lime for A vodka lime and soda only lime cordial !!! Food service - glacially slow despite there only being about five tables and less than 40 people - food awful. The sooner this place gets proper management the better. Whoever built this white elephant should be shot - imagine demolishing the old pub... More

We have been for lunch twice in the busiest week of the year and found the service to be quick and the food to be of good quality.

The food was lovely and reasonable, great atmosphere and friendly staff. Went back few weeks later and the menu had nothing on it that I liked, so went somewhere else. Not everyone likes fancy food

We came here for lunch in Dec 2016 and we were pleasantly surprised by the number of menu options available and they were all reasonably priced. My only disappointment was that my nachos were still stone cold from the middle, through to the bottom. I'm sure the kitchen staff would have reheated them for me if I had asked, but... More

The hotel has a great feel, however I had the special pizza and it tastes like a supermarket frozen pizza, really disappoininting as it was advertised as a wood fire pizza, I just expected a better dough. Others had streaks and said that they were lovely and the fish and chips were the dish of the day for our table.

Thank mygo_001
