Rooms were clean and newly renovated, plenty of parking at the rear of the hotel area. Rooms were far enough from the busy South Rd to be quite. Pub meals were great had an excellent Chicken Fajita Pizza. Thursday $13 schnitzel also a hit. The Chrysler Bar has a Charger mounted on the wall and a great ambiance for a...

An excellent venue for a special lunch. The food, service and attention was excellent. The pricing was reasonable and the meals were delightful. Most enjoyable experience. All the mothers were entered in a raffle and given a voucher for a return visit.

Great Service, fast and large serves, it is a Pub / Restaurant , lovely outdoor area and plenty of parking for a busy night, we always enjoy this place, highly recommend it for meals between $20 and $30, Salad dressing is fantastic. Jameson Wiskey is available and they do have some nice mid range value wines like D'Arenberg.

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...

Went to the Chrysler bar on a Sunday night to hot to cook. Two of us had the Cuban sandwich absolutely no complains, great flavours, decent serving size and fast service. The big man had the BBQ burger delicious! Nice meat, juicy and great size as well. Had a bad meal once in the dining area but the bar restored...

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...

I went with a couple of friends for a drink and some lunch.The hotel itself is a very clean place. If you are a sports person it has all the sports on Rv that you want. The day I went there it must have been a title fight so they had a huge television just for the event with lounges...
