Clean comfortable small room. We were the only people there so the amenities were close and always available. Great food is the bistro downstairs and a friendly bar. Walking the halls you can view historic photos of the pub and Macksville. A lovely old building well maintained.

Been here a couple of times for dinner with friends and family and the food is top notch. Food as good as any restaurant but priced right for families. Nice atmosphere, looking over the Nambucca River. Do yourself a favor and stop in for a meal it's worth it.

Food is good, healthy and plentiful at this iconic hotel. Right on the banks of the Nambucca River it commands views up and down the river and over the old bridge. Downstairs is usually abuzz with patrons while upstairs is restful and calm.

Situated beside the river, this hotel/pub offers value. Very breezy and always busy. Double room is basic but clean. Surprised that the pub had only 2 showers/toilets and a double shower to accommodate all the inhouse guest plus outside patrons coming in for lunch and dinner! would come back again esp for the food!

It has a fab restaurant with a great variety, well stocked bar with a number of beer choices, two eating areas with fantastic...

I stay at alot of this type of hotels in my adventure throughout Australia. This pub is a great looking pub with great outlook over the river. But one has to think at what they want to get out of there stay. Firstly a good nights sleep. This pub fails miserably in being able to give guests this due the...

Will definitely be back agin! Went for dinner and a couple of drinks. Meals were HUGE but tasty and fresh also. Not what I was expecting from a local country pub, far surpassed my expectations. Will try the specials next time, went the fish this time, and it was superb. Service was a little slow, but the friendly service and...

Four of us booked a meal after hearing rave reviews about the Tuesday night special of ribs. We were not disappointed, they were the best I've tasted. We had originally booked the upstairs verandah until we learned that we would have to queue for our meals, collect them, and take them, and our meals up a very wide and steep...

The booking process was simply and the staff friendly and helpful. Hubby and I stayed here overnight on our way from Gold Coast to the Hunter Valley. We arrived late but were given easy instructions on how to enter after hours. No bathroom in the room but the bathrooms were close by and clean as was the room which was...

“If noise is a problem ask for a room away from the verandah. No lift so you will need to be able to walk up stairs.”
