Wanderers Rest is a great place to stay. Steve picked me up from the airport and things proceeded in a a warm genuinely friendly manner for the rest of my stay. The room was comfortable and had a veranda where I could watch the bird life especially the endangered glossy black cockatoo which I saw every day while sitting on the veranda. The food was so good. One night as I was the only guest (as Covid continues to make it impact felt) they asked if I would mind having dinner in my room. That was fine by me. They were happy to cook whatever I wanted. I said some seafood so they prods sumptuous array of hot and cold seafood with a salad. I gave it my best shot but couldn’t fit it all in. Their restaurant produced wonderful food and great service. I’m so glad I chose to stay there

Hostess Kim made my daughter feel very welcome which was an insight into the relaxed ambience and good, unobtrusive service.... great sized portions, first time my partner couldn’t finish her meal.... the squid was mouth watering.... worth the visit.....it may be out of the way for some but try this place.... top notch

What a lovely spot to stay. Clean and comfortable with a balcony looking across American River. We had dinner in the restaurant on 3 nights and had beautifully presented and very tasty meals each time. A friendly family run business and we will certainly stay again.

This place was my favourite of our trip in Australia! Nice room with a balcony, stunning views from the room and from the restaurant. Kim, the owner, was very helpful and went above and beyond to make our stay from good to great. We had dinner at the restaurant, the food was divine. Tasty and refined. Well done Carrie. I will recommend this place to everyone. American River is the place to be! Stunning and easy access to everywhere!
