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.

This could be a fantastic country pub, but it needs a lot of investment and work. The entry, front bar and dinning area is quite dark and tired and could do with brighter paint and better lighting. The bar itself it quite good, with friendly staff and Swan beer on tap. Meals are basic pub standard with a smallish menu. The rooms are very basic and quite poor by current standards, shared bathrooms also need a lot of work. Continental Breakfast is provided but is a poor standard compared to other hotels in the district like Nungarin.

Stayed in Dowerin for one night in the little basic hotel motel caravan park as to tired to keep driving. Walked to dowerin hotel. It was Grand final night for sydney football. Not only did they put the game on for us the locals were lovely chatting to us. The barmaid was great the food was very nice and reasonably priced. What a lovely welcoming little town. Do yourself a favour and stay here.

Limited choice, but very reasonably priced food in this typical country bar. Enjoyable meal. My steak was perfectly cooked

Our company booked the room twin share $150.00 per person per night- includes Breakfast and Dinner I believe it is a really old hotel about 100 years over . I understand that it a small country town and our expectations was low , however it was not low enough. The room was so small all it had was an old cupboard a light bulb which worked and a plug point that did not, we could not lock the door. When we told them we got that look ..yes the door locks ...we had to give them the key and told them to show us ..finally the manger said yes we were right.. She finally manage to get the door to lock. Dinner plates were plastic not like the picture. I just feel more effort should have been put in to maintain the standard of the hotel , its a heritage building and it should be preserved as such .

Hi and thanks for your input. Please note, as the title of your review states, you stayed over the Dowerin Field days. These two nights are the two biggest nights of the year for our hotel and our town. We open up all our rooms for the event, so the room that your stayed in is not a room that is used often. We have to do this just so we can give as much accomodation out as possible. It is very hard to find a bed in the town and area at this time. The rate for these two nights are much higher than usual, as is with any other place with a large event on, due to demand and extra staff and costs. The plastic plates are used for these two nights only also. As the town has an extra 20,000 plus people coming through, we are not able to keep up with the plates etc as usual, so the plastic plates are used for efficiency and speed. The majority of people understand this and are happy. I'm sorry you were disaappointed. We try our best over this very busy period to make everyones stay as comfortable as possible.

Chose fish n chips as an evening meal. Know to order seafood so far from the sea is a risky business but been eating pub food for days on my trip i.e. lamb and beef was too much for my tummy to take again, so I take some responsibility for choosing fish lol. The fish was old, sad very sad, the fries poor, the salad equally disappointing. The price was way to much for what I got in the overall lack of quality. The barman was rude (perhaps the owner), and quite threatening towards me when I referred to the bar woman as the "barmaid". I was enquiring where my ordered drink was. I cast no aspersions toward the woman in question in the least, neither in my words nor tone ... the way I was spoken to was very unpleasant indeed.

Hi Philip, We are very sorry your experience at the hotel was a bad one. The owner who you said was rude was going through some personal stuff, have spoken with him and is sincerely sorry that he was rude to you. It is no excuse, but would love to buy you a beer and offer a free feed if you ever happen to be back. We generally have very good reviews of our fish and chips, so I'm very sorry that this time it wasnt pleasant for you. I hope if your ever this way again you can call in and enjoy a meal and drink on us!

Stayed for one night, got a room that faced the street and railway line and still very quiet for a Sunday. Was only guest in the hotel, common bathroom was clean and serviceable. Access to balcony possible from room or hallway. Beer cold, mixed grill for dinner was fantastic, continental breakfast available too.

In Dowerin overnight and chose the 'pub' above the roadhouse for a meal Tasty , well cooked , big serving ..... Though the menu was limited ... I think 5 choices plus a few pizzas , it was well priced and I guess catered for all tastes Went for the Scotch Fillet served with a mushroom sauce , plus the ubiquitous, chips and salad ...$27 ... the salad was very interesting , a combo of three different types ... potato , garden , and coleslaw Add to the meal a glass( again scant attention paid to RSA) of house red for $7 and I was left very satisfied ...

What i like is that the Dowerin hotel has rooms appropriately priced. No bells and whistles but only about $55 a night. That includes continental breakfast. Shared bathrooms which is common for these types of properties but plenty of hot water from goid shower heads. Its basic so come with appropriate expectations. Its not a luxury stay but does the job. Dinner is great and again appropriately priced so worth doing dinner. The pub itself is welcoming with a wood fire for winter. Three stars because it does what it says on the tin.

There isn't much open in Hay on a Tuesday evening. Basically you have the choice of the pubs and the Thai takeaway in town. After walking the strip I decided to try out the Commercial cafe as it looked bright and airy and less Bistro like than the others and I was glad that I did. There was a good range of meals on the menu from light entree style meals to your more traditional steaks. I ended up with a steak sandwich and it was really good - perfectly cooked moist steak & chips on the side. One of the other diners also commented that her steak was very good too. The only downside which would be easily fixed was that only 2 of the 6 bottles of wine offered by the glass were available. Service was efficient & friendly & the coffee was excellent!
