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.

Deciding to stay in Gulgong NSW whilst working in Mudgee this trip was the best thing we did. The atmosphere at this hotel / Pub is outstanding. Circa 1872, it has a feel all of its own. We ate here 3 nights out of our 5 staying here. The food is fantastic by the Chef and special thanks to Gabby & Megan behind the Bar - you will be made feel welcome as soon as you walk through the door. We will return here. Cheers Fletch & Donna / Classic Restos TV.

Good clean facilities. The rooms are quiet (mid week ) and comfortable. The staff are helpful and friendly. We have stayed there a few years ago and it was the same then. Plenty of parking at the rear, close to the rooms. I would consider stay again. It is a convenient place to stay in the central west.

Well this is an unassuming place from the outside, but wonderful inside. Alittle different and quirky with an old Australian feel. Wonderful staff, especially the gentleman who looked after us today. The place was pretty full today in the dining room - and I now know why. Great pub menu, generous servings and VERY tasty meals. Would definitely return.

Stopped here for a drink prior to dinner. Lovely friendly staff, great wines by the glass. Nostalgic atmosphere, nice venue where it feels like the locals hang out. I liked the background music and music videos; also the various historic nick nacks and photos on display. Will definitely be back! Would like to try the food next time, the plates coming out of the kitchen looked very good.

Excellent value for money. Modern clean and well equipped motel rooms at the rear of this historic hotel. Rooms have microwave and toaster plus all the usual amenities. Very quiet. Friendly helpful staff. Great atmosphere in the bar, dining room & beer garden. Log fires, good pub meals & local wines all at reasonable price. The perfect place to stay right in the centre of historic Gulgong.

We found the accommodation to be comfy and clean, with plenty of consumables, and some great added touches like crockery and cutlery. Rooms were of good size and we experienced no noise from the pub at all.

We arrived at the Prince of Wales Hotel after 3 days of motorcycle riding. We were promptly checked in and advised of off street secure motorbike parking if needed. Our room was very well presented. We had a lovely meal in the hotel, experienced great customer service, had a restful nights sleep and look forward to another time when we will stay at the Prince of Wales to visit Gulgong and to spend more time to look around.

Fantastic service, great portions, reasonable prices and fresh food. I had the Mediterranean lamb salad and my husband had the bangers and mash. We would both highly recommend the dishes we had. Would definitely eat here again!

Great place to stay with good size rooms. We stayed in the new motel rooms at the back and had a private bathroom that was a good size. Room had wifi, a bar fridge and tea/coffee making facilities with a Queen size and a single bed. Plenty of room to put our bicycles in the room overnight. Lovely little courtyard leading to the beer garden of the hotel. Pub food was good pub food at good prices (Thurs night chicken schnitty was only $6.50 plus extra for gravy/sauce). Staff are friendly and helpful. Its a great place to stay if you are doing the Central West cycle circuit. Gulgong is a great little town with history.

Sadly we didn’t stay here but had dinner! Typical lovely country pub with great atmosphere, welcoming staff and yummy food! Loved it. Gulgong is a hidden gem - don’t miss it! Will be back as we were only passing through and had no idea it is so good
