Visited same time last year, the place was legitimately terrible. Someone has obviously seen the warning signs, with a changed menu and improved service making the hotel a viable visit for a meal. Have had the lamb rump twice, very good. Wife has alternated between steak and chicken salad, no problems there. No pizzas available for ordering during our visits.... More

It's a nice outlook during the day. But at night the view can't save it, and you're left with ordinary pub food & sour staff. Showed up before 8pm for dinner, the place is 3/4 empty. Was asked snappily- 'Do you have a booking?!' No honey, we didn't think a booking would be necessary for your empty bistro... She dumped... More

The view is 5/5 but the food and service is dodgy. Expensive for the size of the servings and service can be very slow.

Had both breakfast and dinner here each of 3 days we stayed at the hotel so we could take advantage of magnificent view. Prices very reasonable. Breakfasts were better than dinners. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Stradbroke Island Hotel bar and food area have quite pleasant surroundings and a nice outlook over the ocean. The food is average and relatively expensive for pub food. A downer was paying $36 for a dozen tiny oysters with no sauce or dressing - and one was well and truly off. Their calamari and battered fish were nice and fresh... More

The Stradbroke Island Beach Hotel is a fantastic family friendly place to have a meal or just a drink. The service is always great, the food is always good and the view is spectacular!

Views were stunning that was about all the hotel had going for it on the day we visited. This is a must do stop for us when visiting Straddie. Generally we stop in for a beverage and meal at the hotel. Unfortunately, very disappointed on this visit. Unacceptable slow service, not very friendly staff and food very much below average....
