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.

Had a pleasant lunch BUT ordered trio dips which were lovely, then our main courses came out half way through our dips when I said no mains until we finish 1st course. Then my main was totally different to what I wanted. The sauce with...my ravioli tasted nice but to me had some curry & brown colour. Discussed with Kathy who deserves a BIG pay rise as she handled my displeasure very professionally as I thought she was the Gen Mgr. Hats off for great service & 5 stars to Kathy as we will be back again, but not Ravioli as much to choose from menu. Thank you Kathy. X Alan Thynne.More

Firstly can I say that the staff were excellent good for a laugh but very efficient. that is were it ends. The price tag on the food and wine was at middle to top end restaurant price. This was basically pub grub. The small porterhouse...was up of $40.00 and came with a small portion of dried chips and a salad comprising of lettuces leaves. The wine list for the reds commences at $58.00 a bottle. The previous evening we dined at Herd, which is mentioned as and certainly is the number 1 restaurant in Healesville. Entree mains and dessert at both establishments 2 gin and tonics and a bottle of red at both also. Difference in price. Herd was $20.00 dearer.More

We had a late start to our day and appreciated that the kitchen kept serving until 2:30pm. The staff were welcoming and lunch was delicious. We will definitely go back.

Very disappointed in my stay here, I had booked room for a weekend only to be verbally and emotionally abused by two local females in main bar area, the two inexperienced very young female bartender's didn't do anything to stop the abuse, I payed $216...for Friday night until Sunday morning, but I Up and left for DENILIQUIN NSW, Where I live at 7.30 in the morning, will I stay again, maybe, if they don't allow drunken locals abuse there guests and have proper security or bartender's that would have been taught in hospitality industry that abuse is a big no no with big fines that follows.More

Stopped for a spur of the moment meal for an Easter Sunday lunch. Wasn't overly busy so we sat outside in the beer garden where there were plenty of table, plenty of European wasps and several smokers. They had a couple of different parmas on...the menu, I had the nachos parma. A little dry, overall pretty ordinary, not worth the price. The place is a bit rundown, staff were OK but nothing they did would make me want to go back. We did not stay so I cannot comment on the accommodation. Looking around, I wouldn't think it would set the world on fire.More

Great friendly service, beautifully restored historic hotel and the best food. I had the Veggie burger and can highly recommend it. It was really delicious and such a big helping I was unable to eat it all, unusual for me. Was almost put off by...reviews on this site and honestly only went because the restaurant we had chosen was closed and I am so glad it was. I can’t believe the negative reviews I read here, they couldn’t be further from our enjoyable experience. Thank you to all at The Grand. Will most definitely come back.More
