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.

We are currently visiting from W.A and last night we dined at the Cecil Hotel. We received a warm welcome from the staff. The food was absolutely delicious and served well, and the customer service was just superb! Great atmosphere, we were there with our...children (14, 16 & 18 yrs) and they thoroughly enjoyed it also. Making it a great choice for families. Would definitely recommend the Cecil Hotel for the food, service and great value as well. Thank you for a wonderful evening 😊 As a side note, those Coca cola water bottles are really cool too!More

It's unfortunate that due to an obliterated (probably a regular local patron) it made for an uncomfortable dining experience. We understand that this behavior isn't the hotel's fault exactly but we were surprised that it looked as though he was asked to leave but he...actually just went outside to smoke then came staggering back in again. Although our food was great and the staff are just so welcoming and friendly, this establishment is definitely not a place to bring the children. It was a midweek lunch and due to its location it is very busy.More

I’ve never come across a manager that is so positive and has such Drive then Jay. He made us feel some welcome and we noticed he never stood still. He was always resetting the room and making sure the venue was presented well.. I’ve been...in the industry for over 20 years and only wish I had staff with half the passion he displaysMore

This pub is opposite the Southport GLink tram stop. I ordered the seniors 200g rump which came with chips gravy and salad and cost around $16. Meal was small but appropriate for the price and delicious.

A laidback friendly pub with great food and very accommodating staff. We enjoyed a restful couple of hours in the roomy lounge with a cold drink watching the world go by. Popped in later for a takeaway pizza which was delicious. If we were locals...it would be our regular! Keep on supporting it Coasters.More
