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.

Rooms are clean and tidy and hotel is in a great location. Pub is good, but expensive for a regional location. No happy hour and $9.90 a schooner is considerably more than what I pay in Sydney. Offered no discount for being a house guest. But all up a beautiful town with great fishing!

Treat tourists as foreigners. Up to $2 more for a schooner of beer if your not a local. Seeing as the Golf club at Hawks Nest and Country club Tea gardens charges very reasonable prices for drinks and foods. I would recommend them above the hotel.

What a place! We stayed here with our kids on our way up the coast & loved it. Rooms are beautifully styled, very clean & have super cute touches for the kids. Pub meals were 10/10, we both had the lamb shanks & couldn’t fault them. Amazing! Staff were super friendly, helpful & up for a chat & the huge play area was our lifesaver. Why don’t more pubs have these??? We’ll be back & we’ll be telling all our friends. Do yourself a favour & get to the Tea Gardens Hotel!

Friendly staff especially the lady who served us in the restaurant. Even though the place was busy the food came out fast it was beautiful we ordered 6 meals all came out fresh and hot. Very well priced. The garden and play areas were a hit with the kids.

Older style motel attached to the club which makes it very convenient for meals. Very peaceful away from the main road and by the riverside. There is a big grassy area outside the rooms which is a nice outlook. Beds are comfortable. The room is a decent size and the shower was great. Nice place to stay in beautiful Tea Gardens. We arrived late so they left a key out in a safe which was convenient.

Value for money. Clean, quiet, renovated rooms. 100% will stay here again. Right on the water, so convenient for a relaxing stroll. The children’s playground and beer garden is in the centre of the rooms, perfect for parents travelling with kids, sit back with a beer as the kids wear themselves out.

A Tea Gardens institution, this old pub sprawls along side the Myall River. Its a popular local spot, with a nice beer garden and a large covered outdoor area out the back. The best feature is a regular Thursday night trivia, enthusiastically run by the publican, Ben. In holiday periods, it’s so popular that you need to have dropped by earlier in the day and have booked a table. The interior of the pub was given a considerable spruce up when the pub changed hands several years ago and the ‘Goldfish Bowl’ room and bistro are now pleasant spaces to sit. The bistro food is pub-grub style and if you stick with pub classics, you will probably be OK (see seperate reviews on the bistro). On the plus side, it is open 7 days a week and does $15 specials Mon-Thursday. Overall, this is a classic local pub, with a nice, friendly atmosphere that reflects the pub owner’s warmth and hospitality.

Stupid bar manager who deserves the worst review possible. He knows nothing about hospitality. A disrespectful dog who is the scum of the earth and thinks he can treat people badly. All he wants is your money. Don’t spend here as there are many better options.
