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.

I have to say, I have stayed at this place before and this was my 4th time. 1st time i was a bit duvious as some things not overly clean, had a continually leaking tap but they moved me which I appreciated and other room was great. Been back twice since and even had someone with me on those times and room was clean and money spent was well worth it. Cost met the standard I could say. In fact very happy with my stay. 4th time not great......(April 2023) took me 20 mins overall standing at the bar to check in, got to the room to find unclean floors, back door wide open to anyone walking in, couch cushions not even in the right way and sticking out plus dirty and I mean dirty dishes out on the sink. Went out for dinner at local restaurant which was amazing, returned with my bottle of wine to clean my own glass, sit down to watch the football and guess what! Reception is aboslute garbage. Stayed in room 4, light globes out, vaccum happening outside (guessing the cleaners) at 8pm at night, so could not watch footy or go to bed. Just plain annoyed. This place has been my go to but may rethink for my stays in this area.

Visited wallaby twice, once a lunch & once for dinner.
Food was excellent on both occasions. Enjoyed by everyone.
There was a mix up on our table reservation on the dinner booking but quickly solved and a free round of drinks for 8 of us. A nice gesture.
Highly recommend

The pub it self gives a great first impression with is beautiful heritage buildings. We booked the disabled room 3 months prior to staying there and confirmed the booking two days before arriving, we got there and the disabled room was double booked so I had to struggle up 10 stairs and being new years eve every room was booked out, but I have to say the duty manager that checked us in was very apologetic and comped us a few drinks she was very lovely. The room was old but clean and tidy, the bed was very low and hard as a rock, the air conditioner worked great. We were there for a wedding and glad we didn't go by the clock as was stuck on 3 o'clock also one of the lights were missing a bulb and the tv was set to Nsw times zone just silly little things but if I'm paying $120 a night I expect it to be at a certain standard, I think the room should of only been $80 a night.

How disappointing and embarrassing to say the least, to serve up peas (from a frozen pack) and broccolini and call it “seasonal veges”. They were the only 2 veges, that came out in my bowl. It gave me a laugh at least.
This is a pub and should stick to basic pub food and price accordingly. We gave this place a go twice in one week. Their prices represent top-quality restaurant food yet they do not deliver on it.
To have an $18 salad dish and put very minimal ingredients on top of a bed of lettuce is just an out right rip off, not to mention deceiving. The $26 lamb shank is also very overpriced for what it is. The menu is certainly not within standard pricing for a pub. I have a tip... take a 10 minute drive to Emerald Lakes golf club. Club / pub food, great atmosphere, cheaper prices and great food. The Wallaby chef and management could learn a lot from them. On a nice note, the chips & gravy were great! But of course they should be, something so simple can’t go wrong but don’t get too excited when your bowl comes out as it’s topped up with paper at the bottom and the amount of chips placed on top is not worth $6, as you don’t actually get a full bowl of chips.
Good service, nice atmosphere but just don’t have high expectations for the price.

Incompetent and irritable staff who don't care about the well being of customers, very high chance of being spiked, and the staff have very little knowledge on how to handle such situations. The food is awful and waitstaff need an attitude adjustment. Be careful going there.

Visited as a couple and had fillet steak and half chicken and garlic bread to start. Garlic bread was the only passable thing we ate. Steak was small and thin and not nearly worth the $45 dollars they charge! Chicken was tasteless and also for some reason came on a plate “garnished” with pesto and balsamic vinegar that was not mentioned in the menu, a pet peeve of mine, I hate pesto! But the very worst part was the very strange sauce they called gravy, tasted what I imagine washing up liquid tastes like, absolutely vile. We where hungry so ate the food but when asked as our table was cleared we specifically complained about the gravy, our waitress said she would let the kitchen know, dropped our plates off and walked away. In short food is bland and overpriced apart from the gravy, that’s not bland it’s just awful. $103 not well spent!

Short and not so sweet, beer overpriced and served in warm glasses, both starters were dreadful courgette fritters came to the table black and greasy, jalapino poppers were bearly cooked with cheese running out on the plate, both sent back with not a mention from the wait staff. My main was excellent pork dish my wife's was horrible her lamb kofters were barely warm smothered in unspiced dressing. Couldn't get out fast enough however the most disappointing thing was i rang twice to speak to someone about my disappointment and im still waiting for my call back.

Great spot for a birthday party or any party. Staff were accommodating, rooms were spotless and reasonably priced. Car parking easy. Location in a small heritage village sensational only 3 min drive to Robina Town Centre and railway.

Perfect !!

We have been here quite a few times for dinner and their trivia, which is great fun. Sometimes the food is absolutely amazing, but it really depends on the night. It’s absolutely hit and miss.
Quite a few times they have lost our booking, one time they booked us, then I received a mysterious text saying it was cancelled due to origin footy, I called to confirm the text was actually from them, they knew nothing about it and confirmed the trivia event was actually still on. When we turned up it wasn’t on.
Recently we have had a few negative experiences, one night it was absolute chaos and they were clearly understaffed, meals were all wrong, not very good, heaps of attitude from staff and one member of our party never received their food at all, even though being reassured it was coming a couple of times by the cranky and overworked waitress. (Not her fault)
We went the week after and it was all good again, except they didn’t have our booking- the bookings are done in Melbourne and the communication with the actual hotel is not great. They squeezed us in to a couple of little round tables. Ok cool.
Then we went again last week, confirmed our booking twice as we had visitors coming from interstate who wanted to experience the trivia we loved- we all ordered our meals and the food was nice this time… but no trivia. When it was due to start we checked whether it was still on and we’re informed it was just “running late”. It never eventuated as nobody showed to run the trivia, the place had no idea it wasn’t running and the trivia company didn’t let anyone know apparently…
So, this place CAN be good, but there seems to be no communication about what’s happening and the booking system is an absolute mess.
I think we will go elsewhere and try to find a better spot where it’s not such a hassle to book, food is consistently good and trivia actually runs.

Such quality fresh food, kids loved it to a pre concert meal. Staff were amazing thank you to Tianna & Luke unreal service with incredible food.
The food quality for a pub on the GC is exceptional credit to the whole team at the Wallaby.
