Don’t do it, a pie being thrown out from IGAs pie warmer would be better for you than eating here.

We have been here a few times 2 years ago and it was ok pub food. Came this year and I would recommend this place if you enjoy mediocre toppings on cardboard loosely labeled as Pizza, frozen fish coated in something resembling Batter or frozen chunks of beef shin heated up in the lamb shank sauce instead of the beef peppercorn sauce, or steak so well done (after ordering rare) you could throw it someone’s head and knock ‘‘em out cold, then this is the place for you.
We were silent on all issues except the frozen beef shin which was ordered from the Asian menu but reheated in the lamb shank sauce. Tried to calmly and politely ask chef to defrost my meal, which was done, then upon eating it realising that this was actually the wrong meal, told ‘it was fine!’ with no discussion at all.

Only positive is the little sauces at the front counter. If you coat everything in as much sauce as possible you may be able to chew, swallow and then keep it down. But this is only maybe.

Save your $300 and seriously go to the Tav down the road. Or even IGA - pies are half price at the end of the day…. (and mate I don’t even eat pies)

Very disappointed in the Thursday night karaoke. We were so excited all week of our holiday to sing at karaoke just for our song to be skipped, but other people got to sing 3-4 times when we put our song request in hours ago. Tried to speak to the staff that ran karaoke but they couldn’t give us a legit reason, the bar staff were lovely and very friendly. But Wouldn’t recommend going.

Peak summer holiday season.
Unfortunately, not too many food outlets are open at 7.30pm for dinner.
This place was crowded and had Gourmet Pizza! Gave it a go.
Definitely, not gourmet! Had the meat lover’s pizza - good crispy base but that’s all. Cheap ingredients and oily. Pink Snapper fish and chips- fishy. Found a review later - ? fake pink snapper. Could be true or not fresh. Food $57.
Beers $10.50 a pint!

I stayed in the motel part of the Kalbarri Motor Hotel recently and left disappointed.
The accomodation was affordable but ultimately did not represent good value for money.

The motel rooms whilst pleasant and clean are aged and lack modern facilities like wide doors and accessible bathrooms. The service received by staff was acceptable, but only just. It ultimately lacked respect and friendliness.

The accomodation experience may have been okay back in the 1980’s, but in 2020 it is not, particularly in the tourism hotspot that Kalbarri is.

Without improvements I would choose to stay elsewhere.

Room tip: Accessibility is poor due to aged room types.

Spotlessly clean accommodation across the road from the beach. The only issue is the noise from the pub at night, especially if you intend rising at 5am to walk in the gorges and need a good night's sleep. A toaster, chopping board, plates and cutlery and a good sized bar fridge are provided in the room - handy for making breakfast and lunches. Good place to stay for a couple of nights

We went here early for a family meal expecting a yummy pub meal and that is not what we got. Their beer and cider was not cold from the tap. The chips were dry like they had been sitting for a week. The steak was cold and grissely, could have been covered over with a hot gravy, but no, that was tepid as well. The salad was limp and not fresh. I definitely would not recommend this pub for a meal.

Also spoke with the manager, what an ignorant rude person.

Major let down
