Nice hotel: terrible restaurant service. Had a two hour wait for dinner. Our tour group of 22 people was the only group in the restaurant, so don't understand the delay. Aside from that, it is a good hotel with spacious rooms. There are no lifts, but staff were happy to help with bags.

I become very upset when I read reviews such as this and my philanthropy declines. This is a terrible thing to say on social media and this person should be ashamed, for they have lied. We try to offer a very salubrious atmosphere in our restaurant with open fires, comfortable lounges, piano player etc. for those that may find they...

It was a real pleasure to stay at a well maintained, clean and carefully preserved art deco pub in Broken Hill. we had a smaller room facing an internal light well- so next time I would definitely go for a room onto the balcony. This building is in great shape and is being carefully maintained and run by an efficient...

Terrible service for dinner tonight. We have been here for 2.5 hours. Just got main course. Had to ask after 1 hour when entree would be coming. Given a bread roll then half hour later entree. We will not be waiting for dessert. Pork was undercooked and inedible. Very poor

My friends and I had dinner here on Tuesday 11th April and we were very pleasantly surprised. The price is affordable- we only had mains- $32- $35 and glasses of wine each. The choice of meal is varied and the service was very good. The atmosphere in the dining room is elegant and friendly so much so we talked with...

The Royal Exchange Hotel is steeped in Art Deco design and I found myself many times standing and staring at the restored hotel. We found the rooms a little on the small size, but that is dictated but the design of the hotel in 1940, not much you can do about that but be aware if you are booking and...

I didn't stay at the hotel but dined there on several occasions whilst on a two week working trip. This is the best restaurant in Broken Hill, I tried several others but kept coming back. The staff are professional and friendly, the food is delicious and reasonably priced.

The room was beautifully decorated with plenty of space. The bed was very comfortable. We dined at the Restaurant and the meal was top shelf food. We loved our experience at this hotel. I would definitely recommend this hotel to travellers.

She's showing her age and trying to conceal it with a few modern in-room amenities but nothing can hide the size and dated facilities of the bathroom other than a full renovation. Pros: * enormous, comfy bed * large room with sofa and desk * free WiFi * fully-stocked mini-bar fridge (large enough to hold your own snacks too) *...

My husband and I stayed at the Royal Exchange twice in January. Once we had a front room ($10 more expensive) and once a back room. Both were immaculately clean with nice furnishings. The bed was comfortable with high quality linens. The hotel staff are extremely helpful and friendly and very professional. Being in this hotel transports you to the...

In 1885, this hotel was the 53rd hotel in Broken Hill to be given a licence. It was rebuilt in 1941 and exhibits an art deco style. At first sight, it looks like a pub/hotel, but this is no longer the case. We had a king room with a wonderfully comfortable bed in a quiet room. The hotel is convenient...
