I recently dined at the Hinterland Hotel with a larger family group. The reason we chose the hotel was because it is centrally located between Tweed Heads and Brisbane, as our family are spread between the two locations. I ordered the Moroccan Chicken (from the lunch menu) and the chicken was dry. My husband had the seafood plate and he...

We went here for dinner after arriving from a long drive from Townsville in one day. I've been here many times having lived locally a few years ago and was disappointed. After buying a jug of coke to quench our thirst and finding it tasteless, we took it back to let them know, giving us another one which was 'better',...

Didnt suprise me to find out this is an ALH (Woolworths) motel. Delapidated decor, and riverview balconies absolutely filthy, deck chairs were so mouldy you could not sit in them. Stairways unswept and dirty, car park full of debris. This property has the makings of a great motel if kept clean and given some loving management and maintenance. The check...

My son booked an overnight stay here due to the location, the best I can say is the staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean but tired, I guess it was reasonable value for $120, and maybe I shouldn't expect more for that rate. We didn't eat at the hotel so I can't advise what the food was...

Not what we had hoped. It is an old place that hasn't kept up to date with anything. I hadn't thought to say we are an older couple that would prefer a downstairs room. The picture on line doesn't appear to be 2 storey. The room is tiny & in poor condition. BUT -the worst part was to look up...

The river room had a smell emanating from the drain that was unpleasant. Although clean enough, the whole room needs a much needed renovation. Cigarette burns into the plastic hand basin in the bathroom, chipped tiles and the room is bad need of a coat of paint. The hotel attached to the accommodation is dodgy central! Not a friendly environment...

Very cheap, dark and dirty. The hotel is very run down. The shower we had was very weak pressured and would jump between scolding and freezing within seconds. Beds were about a 2/5 on comfort. No microwave or utensils in the rooms either. The people at the place were all quiet nice and the pub next door was nice enough...

First they couldn't find my booking, then I settled in and that's when it started. Room was filthy, used tissues in draws. Toilet tissues on floor that stayed there for 3 days. Baby dummy under bed, shower trickled out of spout and filter in aircon was so dirty had no idea how it worked. When I tried to resolve this...
