The female staff were very unfriendly and unwelcoming but the male members of staff were polite and friendly. The food was generally good with sufficient portions. However, the cooked breakfast lacked expected options like beans and/or tomatoes. We found a... More

I have never stayed in the hotel but have eaten and drinks at Leslies. My most recent visit was June this year 2016. They have done a remodel and really smartened the place up. Nice and bright and inviting and the food is great. Drinks always cold and fresh. I like the place mainly because they do not blast the... More

Having visited the Avoca for a few years, the food has improved greatly. Breakfast very good and evening meals are tasty. My only moan is from some of the older staff, the younger ones were helpful and polite but obviously run off their feet from the barking orders from the older staff. We arrived and stated we were going to... More
