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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Read reviews on TA and decided to give this place a go. Nice clean, welcoming pub with a nice wine selection and food menu (pub bistro fare, though we didn’t eat). Had a nice rosée sitting in front of the hotel, but there’s also a nice garden area out back. Great setting, fairly quiet from street noise and nice place for families and couples. Staff was friendly, engaging and helpful. Highly recommended.

Oldest licensed Pub in Victoria, the Public Bar is wonderful, friendly staff a real piece of Australian culture. Very good food for a Pub, if a little pricey but quality and well cooked I had a paella but wished I had got a steak after seeing others served! The beer was cold as well can’t go past Carlton Draft on tap.

Our room was clean and quiet, but not the room we booked, apparently someone damaged the room the night before, really understand we needed to be rebooked in a different room, but this should of been a upgrade not the down grade we we given, management was rude and degrading and a care factor of none, really disappointed, as wasn't expecting any more then the money we paid, but wasn't expecting to be talked down to, and told what do you expect you only paid $--- very poor management..I was really looking forward to staying in such a old inn with history and character, but with this rude management I would never stay here again..sad as I'm in hospitality and understand customer service, but wow not here..

Good value basic accommodation at a cheap price. PLUS POINTS: Clean and comfortable bed. Good location. Hot shower. Had a very tasty meal in the pub (Pork Curry & Nasi Goreng). MINUS POINTS: The towels were old and grey, one of them didn’t seem very clean. There was no hairdryer. The wooden frame holding the wall lights and radio seemed very dusty.

Pub & restaurant had a very locals only feel. Rude manager and bar staff. Food took over an hour to arrive and was either cold or bland. Maybe the chef was away… Nothing offered off the bill, felt sorry for the young waitress. Avoid.

A nice Motor Inn. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Quite and cozy. Coffee cup was chipped and a few tiles were missing. Overall a lovely stay on a tight budget. It met all our needs. Didn’t have time to go to the pub but it was very busy and looked great.
