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.

This is an older country hotel but clean and comfortable. Our room was available on arrival and was basic but clean. A downside is that there were no hangers in the wardrobe. The bed was comfortable and quiet. We enjoyed our stay. We didn't eat here but the hotel has a small cafe attached where we got a basic breakfast.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at the North Gregory Hotel, which is grand and steeped in history. The rooms have modern conveniences (ensuite, aircon, fridge), but still retain the old charm. Rooms are on the second floor and I don't believe there was an elevator (best to check with the hotel if this is required). Staff were very friendly and the food in the pub was excellent (albeit the serves were enormous). Would definitely stay here again.

It was an unforgettable experience, as we felt immersed in the history of a city and a region so characteristic that only a country like Australia can offer. The atmosphere was stupendous, the rooms were appropriately proportioned and where you can breathe history. When we used the toilet we were surprised by the smell of the water as we had already had the same experience in Rotorua in New Zealand, so it didn't cause us any inconvenience and our skin was grateful. To end our stay, we found the icing on the cake because when we checked out we had your collaborator Sara waiting for us, who like us is Portuguese and we never expected to meet a compatriot in Winton, it was an unforgettable way of saying goodbye to a It's also an unforgettable place. Thank you very much. Please say hello from us to Sara. Keep up the good work and don't let the spirit of this FANTASTIC Hotel die. Yours in Health

We had dinner and it was very poor. My partner got sick after eating the pork ribs. The honey salmon tasted awful. Coldslaw was disappointing. The hotel looks fantastic from the outside and the bar and foyer are great areas. The dining room is dark and depressing. Our room was cramped, really small. The shower was over a stained bath. The toilet was stained. The room smelt of sulphur. I completely understand about the water in Winton however the room is of a very poor standard. Winton is a lovely outback town and there is heaps to explore as it is steeped in history. The North Gregory hotel maybe beautiful from the outside but look beyond the facade if you want to stay there. A truly disappointing stay. The hotel needs a total renovation of its rooms and ensuites.

Spent a night here & although the place is old & in need of a refurbishment it was clean & comfortable. Thankfully they have a lift now so no lugging baggage up stairs. The long hallway echos but it didn't disturb us. A decent size shower with good pressure, however the town water is bore water therefore has a sulphur smell so I wouldn't recommend a long shower.

Worst double hamburger ever partially eaten. Double beef Pattie’s tasted like boiled mince meat. No onion no egg to bind them. Absolutely tasteless.Served on paper in a small plastic container which allowed everything to spill over the sides on to the table.

Enjoyed a great lunch (bangers and mash) on a Saturday, complete with entertainment from Gregory North. Wonderful recitation of Banjo Patterson classics and exceptional knowledge of Pattersons life. Must do in Winton.

This pub has amazing food, and great atmosphere, and great entertainment - the perfect combination. An absolute treasure in the middle of nowhere and very welcome at the end of a long day. A great outdoor garden and really helpful staff make this the perfect package.

During October 2022 my wife and I embarked on a “Legendary Longreach and Winton Tour” with Outback Aussie Tours, incorporating three nights in Longreach and 2 nights in Winton. After an enjoyable visit to the Waltzing Matilda Centre to kickstart our Winton leg of the tour, my wife and I took a 3 minute leisurely walk up Elderslie Street to the centre of town where we called into the famous North Gregory Hotel to have a look around the place and also enjoy a drink on what was a warm day. So why is the North Gregory Hotel famous? Well, for a start, it was here on April 6, 1895, that Australia’s unofficial national anthem, “Waltzing Matilda”, was first played in public. In addition, Winton locals held secret meetings at this hotel during the 1920s to form a small airline called QANTAS. Finally, it is worth noting that Lyndon B Johnson, the 36th President of the United States stayed at the hotel when his plane was forced to land in the Outback during World War 2. That’s three good reasons. I believe, to give the place ‘famous’ status. The Hotel has also had a chequered history with the original hotel, (established in 1879 and known as “Gregory North”) being destroyed by fire in 1899. It was rebuilt and this second hotel also succumbed to fire in 1916. Again it was rebuilt and again this third hotel was struck by fire in 1946. Onward, ever forward, with the help of the local Council of the day, construction of the present brick hotel began in 1952 and was opened for business in 1955. This present hotel is an excellent example of a well designed retro brick structure, now 68 years old and dominating the central business area of the town. We enjoyed a nice cold beer in the main Bar, which went down a treat. The Bar is neatly laid out with benches and stools strategically placed and there is lots of room to move around. Below the Bar counter is neat tiling done in two shades of green. There are a couple of television screens to watch sport or other entertainment and there is a pool table. It was not busy when we were there; however, I am sure it gets crowded depending on the occasion. Prior to our drink, we checked out the Daphne Mayo Dining Room and admired all the wonderful, original sandblasted etchings commissioned in the 1940s and created by acclaimed artist Daphne Mayo that adorn the glass doors there. These etchings are quite brilliant and were based on three distinct themes for the hotel – QANTAS, Waltzing Matilda and primary industries. The Waltzing Matilda Door leading from the dining room to outside the hotel is particularly impressive capturing the musical notes of the famous song ever so intricately and offering a good portrayal of the Jolly Swagman and the sheep in the song known as the Jumbuck. Just to see these glass doors in this dining room is a worthwhile reason to visit the North Gregory. Out of interest, Dorothy Mayo also created the sculptures on the tympanum above the main doors of the Brisbane City Hall and the Women’s War Memorial in Anzac Square also in Brisbane. Also in one corner of the Dining Room, adjacent to the Waltzing Matilda etched glass door is an old piano with a portrait poster of A.B. (Banjo) Paterson above it, together with a sign which reads “ This is the Spot”. This was where the first public performance of “Waltzing Matilda” is reported to have taken place. One of the hotel staff members gave our tour group a talk about the significance of the “Spot”. Our tour guide Janet thrilled us all at the end of this, with her impromptu rendition of “Waltzing Matilda” on the piano, with everyone singing with great gusto. That was a nice moment. We left the Hotel via the impressive outside beer garden at the rear of the hotel. Around the perimeter of this beer garden are the accommodation units on offer at the hotel. While we were only making a fleeting visit to the Hotel, mainly to see the Dorothy Mayo etched doors and to appreciate the Waltzing Matilda connection, it became apparent to us that this is quite the social hub of Winton offering food, drinks and entertainment as well as being a good resting place for weary travellers. It also boasts a fabulous location. Just outside and opposite the hotel on a grassy island in the middle of the road are the Waltzing Matilda Legend stones – five stones around a circle with a gum tree in the middle with a verse from Waltzing Matilda depicted on each stone. The gum tree in the middle was planted by Hon. Paul Keating, the then Prime Minister of Australia. This is well worth a look. The historic and ornate Corfield and Fitzmaurice General Merchants Building (opened in 1878) is next door to the Hotel. Add the elegant, historic hotels [Australian Hotel (circa 1897) and the Tattersalls Hotel (circa 1882)] across the road from the North Gregory into the mix and you have one of the most aesthetic little country town precincts anywhere. Also on the outside street level wall of the hotel is a very informative and very comprehensive framed weatherproof poster setting out the history of the Winton District from 270 – 120 MYA (million years ago) noting the geological events that created conditions for the formation of the Great Artesian Basin through to AD 1998 when the Waltzing Matilda Centre was opened. This poster appealed to me as an avid history buff. Our advice is to do more than just call in to the North Gregory to have a beer or two. There is so much more to enjoy about this great hotel with its Waltzing Matilda roots, its fabulous glass doors with those Dorothy Mayo etchings and its rich history.
