We are a 150 + year old hotel that was built in the 1860's gold rush era.Built by William McIlveen, he later lost his hotel to John Schofield in a game of cards.The hotel has remained almost exclusive in the Schofield name to this day.
The hotel has been expensively done up over the years to include full TAB facilities, 12 accommodation rooms (4 en-suited),licensed restaurant and beer garden which has just been awarded top 10 beer gardens in Australia.
Robert Schofield has been running the hotel for close to the last 50 yrs and more recently with his son Nathan.
We are a family operated hotel with old family values.
We had a queen room and family room booked for the recent long weekend and we couldn’t have been happier. Both rooms were clean and tidy and had their own en-suites. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The included breakfast of bacon and eggs was great and the lunch/dinner menu was great with a wide range of options.
The Perl Inn was our overnight stay after Gloucester prior to the Woollen Mill tour. We had a big corner room with en-suite. Comfy bed, everything worked, plenty of space. Staff were very friendly. Enjoyed a very nice dinner & breakfast of bacon, eggs, tomato, mushies & toast. A great place to stay, eat & relax on the massive upstairs verandah.
Stayed in a basic room, with old shared bathroom facilities. But there's at least 1 room with an ensuite. Thin walls. The pub itself was good - good food (my steak was perfectly cooked), friendly, good beers. Busy on a Friday night. Great cooked breakfast (included in the room tariff).
Great stay for a night away on bike ride. Pub was very accommodating for us bike riders, able to store bikes undercover overnight. Publican was very welcoming after a long ride and had us sorted into rooms quickly. Rooms are comfortable with good AC and showers / toilets (shared) but clean and hot. They had us already booked in for dinner which was a great pub feed, good bar with big real fire / TAB / Big Screens. Breakfast was also provided with hot Bacon & Eggs spread. Great value if heading to the New England Area and would recommend a the Peel Inn as a good overnight stay. Bike Friendly
We travel all over Aus and try pies wherever we can. After a cafe in Gin Gin Qld with award winning pies at the top of our list, we can now knock Gin Gin down to second place for us. The pies at the Peel Inn are home made by an experienced Baker. If they were entered in a comp, he'd win no probs. Loads of tasty tender beef in thin flaky pastry and at the best temperature, the best. Beers were lovely and cold on our very hot day visit, great country atmosphere in a large undercover beer garden but has aircon and comfy interior seating and lots of room on open shaded verandah.
