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.

While on holiday we revisited the Palmwood hotel. Food is great and a good price.lots of choice on the menu. Kids meals were a little small for a 11 and 10 yr old but tasty. Staff are helpful and always polite. Our new regular when we visit that area.

Every fortnight I take my clients to the Palmwoods Hotel for dinner.
We are never disappointed; the staff are always friendly, service great, and food is always of a high standard.

Never been to Palmwpod before but recently went there for an event. My family and myself went to the Palmwood Hotel for lunch and found it had great atmosphere which made you relax and enjpy your time there. The bar staff were friendly and quick to serve. Our meal was tasty and plenty as we ordered the lunch specials. The menu had a good variety to choose from and not to badly priced. A lovely hotel in a nice area. Enjoy.

Their meals are average. Some better than others. I know some people rave about their food but I'm fussy so for me I find it expensive pub food. Been to see a few bands there also but the lack of room for just sitting and listening to a band doesn't make for a nice experience. You have people playing pool, betting on the horses, dogs or whatever and the pokies around the corner. I suppose for a pub it attracts the bands best suited but would be nice to go to an event where it get to sit and enjoy what you are listening too without all the other interruptions.

So much variety on the menu and portions were huge! We were able to take away our leftovers which were equally as delicious the next day. The prawn and chorizo pizza was a definite highlight, SO juicy and tasty!
