This historic seaside pub is centrally located with rooms upstairs from the bar and restaurant area and also four “Cottages by the Sea” which are four attached two story townhouses. We stayed in the cottage closest to the beach (No. 4) which has a sea view from upstairs. The roomy upstairs consisted of a very comfortable queen bed with two...

Seriously awful, paid $27 for a seafood basket, the salt and pepper squid had absolutely no hint of salt and pepper flavour. Squid was as rubbery as hell, all the crumbs had fallen off and the squid rings were weirdly all joined together. The prawns and scallops were nothing to rave about and the fish tasted like fish fingers. BUT...

We heard new managers took over the Cally just over a year ago at the end of 2015 and were doing a fantastic job. So welcoming and very caring, nothing was too much. If you want to be away from pub noise, then simply book in one of the cottages (see their website) instead of a room above the pub,...

I slept in this really pretty inn for one night with two other people. The whole building is pretty unique, especially the rooms. The staff was very professional and warm. Everything was clean and simple at the same time. It was a real pleasure to stay there.

Stayed here in Hotel Room 5 on a Saturday night in April. Typical historically old two stores stone hotel ... A very clean pub double bedroom with a flat screen TV and views of the sea. Beautiful warming sun streaming in the morning ... wonderful. Room was very quiet after dinner service finished down below. The bed was very comfortable...

Shared bathrooms that are also used by hotel patrons attending events. Not cool. They should place locks on the shared bathrooms so that only guests can use the facilities. No warning that a band will play VERY LOUD MUSIC till 12am. Noise carries through the floor from the cleaning staff who work till 2:30am.

Bought a travel auction to stay for 4 nights. On arrival we were not made to feel welcome and when we inquired about the included breakfast were told "we don't do that anymore, but I'll see what I can sort out". The next morning (and every morning) we had to hunt down supplies for our breakfast, there were no plates...

Don't let the idea of shared bathrooms above a pub scare you. The spaces are clean and the noise doesn't travel from that historic pub into the charming little guest rooms. The new owners are lovely people who introduced themselves and helped us find things to do. Central location is great for walking around town, and even the Wifi worked!

We're back after only a couple of months. Fresh feel with new owners. They were very friendly and helpful from start to finish. We were given a choice of available rooms. The bed was great. New carpet lifts the rooms a bit and the other renos underway should improve the looks. They don't do brekky but No4 across the road...

The Cally has so much charm and potential. It just needs a bit of an upgrade to be really outstanding as the fundamentals are all there- fantastic location, history and Victorian architecture. The iron beds were very comfortable, shared bathrooms down the corridor were fine and showers warm. A paint job, some old prints of Robe, polished floor boards and...

“Rooms are small, comfortable and a bit rustic. There are shared bathroom facilities but don't let this put you off. The facilities are all brand new and sparkling clean. There is also a balcony which house guest can use for meals and drinks with a beautiful view over the ocean.”
