We stay frequently at the mock-Tudor place. Always clean, staff helpful and polite. The interior is a bit dated, but that gives it the Pickwickian air, so do the prints of fox-hunting scenes and of Victorian times. The pub is close and serves decent and plenty of food, locals dominate the scene and strengthen authenticity. The location suits us well,...

Just looking for a cheap place to stay while visiting the Island for a wedding and got a flight & hotel deal on Expedia. Not sure if I would stay here again. Rooms are old but clean. The breakfast was good but the same every day. Really enjoyed the pub and the fish and chips were great.

This was one of those stays you wonder if it's just a bad day. Let's first talk about the exterior. You'd think you are somewhere in Austria or the Alsace in France. I had a 1st good impression. That impression continued in the lobby. I love that old Austrian look it had. Warm welcome, easy check in. Once in the...

We stayed at this place two separate times in a week. The first night was fine other than the cable tv was frozen. To be fair we didn't ask the desk to fix it. Breakfast was fine - nothing too special. The second time we stayed here was no where near as nice. When our keys didn't work we asked...

I wanted to stay at the Waddling Dog since reading the name. TA reviews were pretty good so we stayed for a couple of nights. The facility is older, but trying for charm. The breakfast room is in a room that looks like a library or drawing room. Actually breakfast was the only disappointment for the stay. Both days, there...

Character hotel, very welcoming staff, rooms were very large and clean. Dated style, but it was part of the charm. I will absolutely book in here again. Was awesome to have such a clean hotel that welcomes dogs. Most put you in some crappy smoky room, this hotel was wonderful with my two Italian Greyhounds.

The rooms are spacious, good lighting, breakfast included was nice & included scrambled eggs & bacon. I had no complaints with the hotel however, it's not in the most scenic area but only minutes from Sydney with a prettier view.

Pretty much your run of the mill hotel. Price was reasonable, the staff were friendly, and room was clean. Place is pretty dated, but some might just call it "Character". The continental breakfast exceeded our expectations though, fresh eggs (real eggs), fresh bacon(real bacon) and fresh potatoes (REAL POTATOES!). Also there is a McDonald's across the street.....
