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.

It is disgraceful that they can even charge you to stay a night in this dump! The carpets are filthy and stained, the top of the open falling apart open cupboard are full of saw dust, edgings on ancient formica are peeling off, the pillows...are stained, lumpy and probably 10 years old. The place stinks and smells mouldy so they have an overload of air fresheners to mask the smell. Toilet paper is limited, only one already used roll on arrival. There is a stupid shelf all the way behind the beds so you cannot rest your head against anything to read. The furnishings scream old and beyond use and the rooms are dark and dingy. The mirrors were filthy. Bogans were going off swearing at staff so windows and open non closing glass louvre blinds give no peace when you are trying to sleep. Food in bistro is sub standard. The mushroom gravy is a disgusting slop that tastes like some much they poured out of an old sauce bottle and added two bits of mushroom to. The standard is poor and level of hygiene and cleanliness requires the attention of health inspectors. The staff don’t care when you talk about the state of the place. Just shrug their shoulders and avert their eyes.More

Amazing service and great food! Dropped in for dinner here on a Thursday night and we will be back. The amazing staff had colouring in and were very kind. The dishes we ordered were delicious and generous in size.

The food was great, as well as great value for money. The staff were amazing - so helpful and accommodating. Would certainly recommend and would go again. It was a great half-way meeting point for a family reunion.

Usually get a good feed from here but not last night. The ribs and wings night is a joke. Don’t expect too much on your plate. Ribs were dry and coleslaw inedible. Minimal chips on the plate. The nachos was disgusting. Hardly any meat or...cheese involved. Hair in one meal. Very busy but that’s not an excuse for $18 for 5 dry ribs and 10 chips. Stick to the schnitty. Can’t go wrongMore

In a world of mediocrity, this bistro stands out. As a cook I have high expectations and it did not disappoint. We enjoyed a Saturday dinner, and a Sunday lunch and dinner and the food was excellent. Restaurant quality, great service, it was the grand...final weekend, it was packed but there was no stress or overly long waits from a very professional team. PS...my seafood pasta was SUBLIME!More

We had been out bush walking and decided to go to the bistro for lunch and a well deserved beer. The staff were friendly and there was an extensive menu and a few nice specials to choose from. I ordered the works burger while my...husband decided to have the Burgers and mash with peas. We sat outside in the beer garden and enjoyed our cold beer. It wasn’t long before our food arrived. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals.More

Dropped in on the public holiday for a late lunch. Hadn’t been before, and as they have a kids play area that was the clincher. It was a miserable rainy day. Appeared to be plenty of empty tables with a few larger groups still lingering...after their earlier lunches. Quite a large menu for a pub bistro great variety too, all the classics are available. We stuck to the classic chicken parma’s and wow just delicious and omg huge ! With the addition of the seafood mornay topper on one, it was worth the extra $ ! Both of us opted for chips and their yummy salad ( the dressing ❤️) Kids fish and chips well accepted and eaten.More

The food here has always been exceptional however our last 2 times have been disappointing.. March and April 2022. For the prices they charge it’s just an average meal. I ordered Caesar salad . Since when does it come with purple lettuce, red onion and...cucumber? Others ordered steak which was chewy. Very basic meals. Yes I did tell the waitress. Can’t say I’d rush backMore

Stayed a few days in Dunbogan and decided to give the Laurieton Hotel Bistro a go especially since they had good reviews. On arrival it was a bit annoying that the specials on the website (nightly) did not match those in the bistro but we...moved on from that. Decided on a pepperoni pizza and the beef nachos. The pizza was ok with the pastry a bit dense, but the toppings were as expected. The beef nachos were unfortunately horrible. The beef was just mince without any seasoning or spices, add the melted cheese and avocado and you have a pretty bland meal. Ate about a quarter and couldn’t eat the rest. Maybe we caught them on a bad night but wouldn’t rush back.More
