Hotel is in need of a makeover. It was an extremely hot day when we visited and the air conditioner did little. Staff advised that the air con was old and doesn't work well in heat. Meals are average to poor. Upon our visit (in my opinion) staff were not interested in our well being and blunt with hotel rules....

We stayed two nights - very comfortable, very clean rooms at a good price. Our room had a great view of the Bay and the local pier. Top spot to stay as so much in walking distance. Excellent food at a reasonable price.

The lunch meal was very good with a basic choice of tasty food. The service was excellent and made you feel to come back for another time. The day we were there was a winter day and the Corio bay looked grey but a sunny day would be beautiful.

I've been coming here all my life. Infact it is in my earliest of childhood memories. After 40 years there have been a lot of changes. Personally I liked the 80's version best. There were heaps more palm trees and a milkbar on the side and a great band area. These days its still good! Really Good! The food in...

I stopped in after a busy work day. Got an open steak sanga for $12.50 and a glass of delicious mulled wine for $5. Excellent service and great atmosphere as everyone gets ready for the trivia night. I'll be back. Trivia night gets underway as I slip out to get home. Looks like fun

Beautiful day, beach, where better than the beer garden at the front of St Leonards Hotel. Meal didn't take too long to come, and was quite good. Great view. Typical pub food with chips and salad, not fantastic food but is reasonably priced.

Came here for dinner, because of the nice location right opposite the beach. Service OK, but the food was average. But, they did do a gluten free meal on request. It's nicer in the front bar than in the bistro, and the menu is the same. Might try it again, but only in the bar.

Rooms clean tho small. Balcony to each room tables dusty and dirty, needed to clean them before using. Didn't have any breakfast notice in the rooms so don't know if have they serve it. Lots of local bakeries and coffee shops within an easy walk. Small price per nite $139 so good enough.

A typical small town pub/hotel, full of locals, beer flowing, busy. We stayed for 2 nights. Room was clean and tidy, had everything we needed. Bed was super comfy. View from the room is lovely and nice to wake up to. We didn't eat here so can't comment on the food. Staff were lovely. An all round nice stay, average/basic...
