Wisemans Inn Hotel offers pub-style accommodation with 12 rooms and great facilities in the heart of Wisemans Ferry. The Wisemans Inn, perched on the banks of the Hawkesbury River since 1827 serves as the epitome of classic Australian pub-style accommodation. Close enough to Sydney to escape the grind at the last minute, yet far enough to immerse in the relaxed atmosphere of nature. There are 2 types of accommodation at the Wisemans Inn with hotel rooms on the second floor of the hotel as well as alternate motel units situated adjacent to the hotel. The 5 rooms above the hotel are individually styled and have shared bathroom facilities and are each equipped with a TV, Air Conditioning (from December), bar fridge and tea & coffee facilities. The motel units have private bathrooms, ceiling fans, tea & coffee facilities and bar fridge. Wisemans Inn is the perfect place to catch up with friends over a drink. The bistro proudly serves quality, gourmet steak sourced from local, family-owned cattle- offering a unique "from paddock to plate' dining experience. Amenities sure to keep everyone occupied including pool tables, kids playground beer garden and even our own on-site Cobham Hall museum! Wisemans Ferry offers a myriad of things to eat, participate in and explore! The Mangrove Mountain Markets offer a selection of local artisanal delicacies amongst the shade-bearing trees every last Sunday of the month. If you're more of an adrenalin-junkie the river hosts a variety of water sports such as wake-boarding, water-skiing and tubing. Let us take care of you at the Wisemans Inn, while you recharge your batteries and explore the beautiful Hawkesbury River.

Over priced, no atmosphere, disappointing, had one drink and went to bowling club. The place could be great but lacking electricity that makes people enjoy the experience.

The menu is a bit pricey for pub food but definitely worth every dollar. I had the steak Diane whilst the other half had the fish of the day which was Barramundi...both perfectly cooked and bursting with flavour.

Everyone I was reviewing their actual Inn and not their pub food. Their actual rooms that you sleep overnight. You know those? Well yeah they were absolutely horrific
