We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hogsback Inn. We are race organisers and were organising a trail run with the Inn as the hosts. Jenny Lee, Alan and the team all went out of their way to ensure all was catered for. Thank you, can recommend your hotel. We will be back. Sharon Eldridge (Race Director)

We booked for one night! Should have done some research first! Very dilapidated, dirty carpets and grey sheets! Will not be back in a hurry! But the staff and our waitress in particular very friendly and helpful! Food adequate! A good renovate would be in order!

We stayed over in Hogsback for two nights. One night we ate at The Inn. My daughter and I are gluten intolerant and we still managed to find something to eat. I had the 300g fillet steak which was very tasty. It only came with stir-fried veg unfortunately. The veggies were very tasty but I'm used to chips with steak...

It was a very relaxing break and the owners were very friendly. They are currently in the process of upgrading the hotel as well which is good as there were just a couple of items missing from the self catering units. They were quick however to replace the missing items

We arrived in Hogsback on a very hot day, the hotel rooms need renovation annd are neglected compared to self captering units, no aircon or even fans, food in the restaurant was reasonable and breakfast was priced on a "per item" basis and not a buffect of standat menu.

Most comfortable and quiet will definitely return at some later stage. Pleasant walks trough the forest which is in close proximity to the Inn. Bird watchers paradise. I am sure that once the renovations and upgrading is complete the Inn will be above average.

Room in need for rennovation, not well maintained, repairs done in a dillerant way, extra charge for breakfast that was lacking a lot of standard features e.g. toast when starting at 8:00... front door was looked when loading the car at 7:30, etc. any place would do better in that area... sad
