Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Food has improved greatly since I last visited.
The hotel had a very off putting appearance of is staff and food served previously.
It was dirty and not welcoming to anyone

Have had two meals that we couldn't eat. Returned the pizza as the base was not cooked, it was just dough. The pizza cane back still with an uncooked base. Lamb Shank was cold in the middle, mashed potato like glue. Will not eat here again.

Can't complain about the customer service... there is none. A 1hour wait on a pretty quiet day with no explanation. Should be spending their money on staff training rather than worrying about installing a second bar.

I’m extremely disappointed, we order lunch for 4, 1 hour later we received 2 meals waited another 40 minutes then asked about the other 2 meals ?? We were told they had somewhere been lost in the ordering, we asked for our money back on those 2 meals ( this was granted) as an apology we were offered free coffee for all four of us, we accepted, the coffee was cold!! We left, also witnessed people having trouble with putting on keno/tab etc it seemed no staff had been trained in this area. 1 last thing on the white board was “ roast pork $10” when we tried to order this we were told that was for yesterday not today and they hadn’t had time to remove it,😡 give it a miss people go elsewhere

We visited this place for a Sunday lunch as we had seen they had upgraded their premises and were keen to try it out. Well, the view of the beach may be great but the service we received was disgusting. Long story short, after waiting an hour and a half for our meals and enquiring about them, our food order had been lost. Not a big deal, mistakes happen. What is a big deal is the manager’s rude, ‘too bad so sad’ attitude towards it. As an apology, she offered us ice creams for the kids that were already part of their kids meal deal anyway. Poor form. She pretty much threw a tantrum when after another 25min wait one of our meals STILL hadn’t arrived and we gave up and asked for a refund. I have attempted to email them to share my concerns and they have chosen not to respond- not surprised to be honest. Atrocious service, very average food and poor customer service. No chance we will ever return… there are far better venues around who their value customers and deserve our money.

When we arrived at the reception we were met with an unfriendly staff member who checked us in. Once we paid for our booking of a nights accommodation, she informed us that she thinks someone else is in the room. On taking us to the room, it looked like someone else was in there so another staff member came out and knocked on the door and questioned the guest on where and when they booked. By this time we were feeling uncomfortable and were advised that they have overbooked and they have no other rooms. We requested a refund which was given and by this time it was getting late and the staff all went home and we were left outside trying to find other accommodation. It was a disappointment after a long drive but fortunately we finally found somewhere in the nearby town.

About 20km off the beaten frack from Ingham sits this wonderful hotel / pub. If your heading through around lunch (like we were) or around dinner time it’s well worth the trip.

The service was friendly, the prices more than acceptable, the view beautiful and the meals amazing.

My partner and I both had the Beef Burger with Onion rings and chips, and it was tasty with a house made patty. But looking at all the food that left the kitchen it was hard not to want one of everything.

Thank you

Rooms were clean and comfortable. The service was incredible on the motel side. The manager who we dealt with went above and beyond to ensure we were comfortable.
Food was delicious!! Would eat there over and over!
