The Hogsback Inn is a not to be missed overnight stay for us when we visit the area. This was our second visit to Hogsback Inn and it remains a favourite in terms of the accommodation as well as the pub and restaurant.

It is the central place to meet, and always good for a burger or steak and a drink on our annual visit to this great little piece of paradise. We didn't stay at the hotel, as it was filled up. The service was good, but the music too loud and selections inappropriate for the dining room (piped in from the...

Beautiful setting, surrounded by grounds with a stream running through them. Some very nice large bedrooms with inviting fireplaces, Cosy bar and lovely dining room. Views of the actual 'hogs backs'. Helpful, welcoming staff. But above all this is an inn with history and character, good character -- a place where every stay will be memorable. This is not the...

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!

Hi there, Thank you so much for your review. we are working very hard to get the Inn back to its past glory. With the Inn being the oldest accommodation and building in Hogsback(1800's) we are aware of the much needed maintenance and renovations and have our wish list in order to get it up to standard. Kindest Regards Hogsback...

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...

I visited Hogsback Inn for a wedding and arranged accommodation at the venue. Beautiful surroundings along with the vintage feel of the hotel made for a great stay. Excellent and friendly service. Will definitely return.
