A big thanks to Carly who helped us out with a quick breaky before opening time so we could get to the Kangaroo Island Ferry on time. Good pub and motel for an overnight stay. Beds comfy and good meals.

Came here after recommendation from a friend who has been here a few times. We ordered schnitzels which came with chips and salad. Staff and venue itself are nice. However, our food did not quite meet our expectation. Schnitzels and salad were nice... tasted freshly made. The disappointment was the chips. Overcooked, no salt whatsoever and no flavor. It was...

We attended an 80th Birthday celebration in a private room. The nibbles offered were warm pide bread with various toppings and beetroot and pumpkin dips. My main course was chicken wrapped in bacon on a pureed sweet potato mash with a mushroom sauce. The sauce contained MSG which is also known as 'flavouring'. Despite the chicken being tender and delicious,...

Great value for money meal and very cheerful, welcoming service. Seniors meal of $16.90 - many choices - huge roast lamb and generous serve of beautiful vegetables (Potatoes, carrot, sweet potato pumpkin and lots of peas) - plus choice of soup or dessert of the day. We had the mini pavlova for dessert - much bigger than we expected and...

Had lunch here recently after many years of driving past. The staff were friendly and efficient, and the dining area was comfortable with plenty of space between tables. The menu was more than adequate, as was the wine list. The food was delicious: I had a lamb dish which was cooked to perfection and was surprisingly tender. I shall definitely...

Stayed in the motel for almost two weeks while in Adelaide. Pro's- Hotel has been refurbished and is very modern, ate in the bistro every night and the meals were absolutely spot on, the chef is a legend. Bar staff were polite. Con's- Internet (wifi) crapped itself for two days which was quite inconvenient as I needed it for business...

The room was pretty clean except for some dust on the shelving. Bathroom and sheets impeccable. Food on the first night at the bistro was great, the next time we went it was not so enjoyable. Room very small, but staff saw that I was drinking wine in the room, and left me a proper wine glass...Big brownie points! All...

I went and saw a band in the Crysler bar, the service was great, the beer was fresh and cold. The atmosphere was great too. Also the beer garden was a nice set up. Access to TAB and sports coverage on TVs was good too.
