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.

We have been to Sodens on many occasions. The food is excellent and help full staff with any changes we needed. The free Live music is an added bonus to the venue. I would recommend this venue to anyone.

Thanks Michael, you demanded I turn down the background music for the entire venue and demanded a new table, when we were fully booked. I turned the music down despite your rudeness.

This hotel has just installed a new kids play area and it is fantastic! The food is great, portions are large and the beers are cold. Great option for a family lunch/dinner or just to get out of the house for a few hours.

Very spacious and nice decor BUT we told the manager that our chips were all cold, 4 meals, and the vegetables pasta was dry and claggy and the burger chewy. To our surprise all they did was defend themselves, no apology and the bar lady...said she would be happy to see us walk out the door. A $ 160.00 meals and service disgusting. Never ever go back. Staff arrogant and rude.Dont go thereMore

We arrived with a large group who had reserved an area which was too small to accommodate us all. But all ok. The place is huge! There was a long line up for food but they were incredible getting all meals out in great time....The staff worked hard that night and did an amazing job. The food is lovely and the service friendly.More

Excellent bistro. Friendly and prompt service. Food was very good - Thai salad and the chicken parmigiana particularly so. The insides are spacious with good light too.

My hubby & I went to Sodens in October and it was fantastic, so much so we raved to the family who had travelled over from Perth for Christmas that we must go .. so we did last night.. I raved about the seafood snitzel...that had before, so my son & I chose to have that.. oh my goodness, the snitzel itself was all soggy , I took a couple of bites , along with the fact that it had a slight odd taste and like I said was sooooo soggy , we chose not to eat it.. by daughter had a pulled pork burger, unfortunately that was tasteless and dry , served with no sauce .. it disappoints me to write this as we really raves about the place. :(More

We dined at this hotel twice whilst on our stop over in Albury. There were no staff to ask if we wanted a table for dinner, I had to ask at a counter. Was told to sit at any table that was not reserved. (Not...good practice for a licensed hotel) We selected a table and chose our meals. We had to go to a bar counter to order meals, no waiter/waitress taking orders.(again not good practice in a hotel) . The meals were quite enjoyable but we found the price charged for a glass of white wine was over the top. We returned a couple of nights later and all the same just sit where not a reserved table. We chose a different meal and this again was quite enjoyable, but drinks are far too pricy for a pub. I personally think they need to think about their staffing and ordering meals etc. as I do not expect to have to go to a bar counter to place our orders. Big thumbs down for this practice.More

This place is absolutely great with kind staff and lovely food. We came here on a Friday night and had a great time. This place is so great for people with dietary needs, I came here with my family and they had so many GF...options and they looked like they knew what they were doing with cross-contamination, especially since the chef is Gluten Free. The atmosphere of the place felt so well directed and the staff were very kind. I ordered the “Big Beef Burger” and it was juicy and a delight to eat. Overall this place is amazing and I would totally recommend itMore

This place looks unassuming from the outside but once you enter everyone is super friendly and welcoming. We had the Gourmet Lamb Pizza and the Grilled Barramundi and both were well worth the price - the serving for the barramundi was huge! Would definitely recommend...this place - just bring your appetite!!More

Thank you very much! They were fully booked for dinner and there was no tables. The wonderful lady got another table ready for myself and my son. 10/10 service. The food also came out very quickly and was excellent.

We organised to use some space at Sodens today for a work meeting/planning day. From the time of booking right through to the end of our day the service was great. They arrived early to greet us and let us in 2 hours before their...normal opening time so we could get started. Lisa, Lyndall and the staff were great and really helpful. We all ordered lunch and had a good variety to choose from off the lunch menu, the venue was clean and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you, will definitely recommend to others.More

As a visitor I can’t say that I noticed; however, I suspect that owing to the great people behind the counter and in the kitchen you may be able to request a special order.
