The stay here was not great. The facilities are clean but in a bad state of disrepair. The showering facilities are over a slippery bath with no non slip mat or hand rails if your a bit older stay away this is an accident waiting to happen. The bed was clean but uncomfortable. Staff were friendly.

Located in town at the end of the main strip of Cessnock we enjoyed a lunch experience here. We did not experience the accommodation. Lunch was delicious and fresh. The hotel had options of indoor and outdoor dining and was spacious throughout. Upon becoming a bit cool outside moved inside where there was a fireplace burning for the additional heat. The bar service was fantastic and enjoyed a nice alcoholic Ginger Beer on tap.

Their house beef burger. I just didn’t get egg and beetroot. Delicious 😋 $19. Went on Wednesday so was quiet. But the size of the burger was huge. Nice atmosphere. Good range of wines. But stock standard beer.

Wonderful staff and food. Chef made a vegan pasta dish for me that was not on the menu and said they can also cater for other dietary requirements. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Would happily recommend this restaurant to others.

Perfect for my needs as a solo on a road trip. Friendly staff who offered to secure my bike before I even asked. Comfortable single bed in a small tidy room. Shared but individual bathrooms are spacious and clean. Included breakfast is simple and serve yourself in the kitchen. If all pubs were like this planning a trip would be easy and cheaper.

After booking a table for our family after reading not only on their Facebook page but also their website that kids eat free on Thursdays we ordered and was told it was an old add and even after stating that they need to honour it we were told no the boss wouldn't at all which is extremely poor. So $145 later for some pub meals and that's all they were and they were ordinary at the best! Order some drinks at the bar and was greeted by the most arrogant man who needs to learn to not mumble swear words under his breathe if the job is too hard for him it was over $30 for a few cans of soft drink, as yep you guessed it no premix. So $175 in the drain, we got terrible "pub" meals, warm cans of soft drink and a kids eat free promise that wasn't upheld. No wonder there was plenty of tables available! Do yourself a favour and skip this pub and go to Macca's!!

A really nice "pub meal" at a reasonable price friendly staff and good service There is lots of off-street carparking out the back An older style pub, as many in Australia are, with it's own character. Has indoor and outdoor dining areas Didn't stay here so don't know what the rooms are like ... it was just a meal visit

We were welcomed by the manager with a friendly smile and service. This grand old hotel has plenty of history and atmosphere that enabled us to enjoy the setting for what would be a delicious lunch. The servings were generous and enjoyable

This gorgeous hotel was walking distance from our motel. We had pre-dinner drinks then came back for dinner later that evening. The bar staff were very friendly and even remembered us when we came back. They made me a very tasty Espresso Martini. They have a lovely roaring fire in the main bar, perfect on a cold winters day or evening. we had dinner in tbe seperate meals area. They cater for large groups but we had a lovely table for three near where you order. This historic hotel is lovely and the pressed metal ceilings are gorgeous. you order and payfor your meals and the counter but they do table service and bring you your meal. The serving sizes are just the right size, not too big. Our party cleaned up their meals, no left overs and we had had sufficient. the meals were tasty and fresh, think comfort food. The lamb shank was a hit at our table.
