We came here for dinner after a long day of travelling. The hotel was abuzz with people but it wasn't hectic. It was comfortable and obviously popular. It was unobtrusive. If you had a question the owners/hosts could not help you enough. The absolute friendliness of this place was intoxicating. The food was delicious. No long waits even though it was busy. This whole town is all closed down by 9 p.m. it is unique. I'll be going back for sure. We loved the sign in the bar that said, "There is no wifi here so look up and talk like it's 1996", and it definitely worked because everyone at every table was talking to each other. Loved it.

Room Tip: We didn't stay here we only ate here. I highly recommend the experience

My family had a wonderful trip to Mena Creek to visit the world renowned Paronella Park but what a benefit to be able to stay at Mena Creek Hotel. We preordered our meals before heading back to Paronella Park for the night tour. When we arrived back our meals were ready, delicious and large. We staying the night at the hotel in very comfortable beds in a lovely family room. Cannot say how great this stay was. Highly recommended.

We visited the hotel for a meal whilst staying close by. The food was great we both had burgers and they were huge, tasted great was one of the best burgers I have had for a long time. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. It had a great country pub atmosphere.

To me there is nothing more comforting then finding a good, clean, comfortable, well priced country pub after a days ride. That is what I found at the Mena Creek Hotel. My brother and I had booked into the hotel during a ride to Paronella Park which is a couple of minute walk away and another definite must do (I have provided a separate review on this). The rooms are smallish and basic, but clean and comfortable. They were not en suite rooms and as with most country pubs do, have share facilities. The staff there were very friendly although there was some confusion with prices and payments of the accommodation when we first arrived. This was quickly sorted out. The meals were good and reasonably priced although on the night we were there, we were not able to have the steak due to a malfunction to some kitchen equipment. Don't expect a 5 star hotel/motel accommodation as you will be extremely disappointing. But if you are after a good meal with friendly service and comfortable basic accommodation, this one ticks the boxes.

Stayed free camping on the grass area beside the Pub, had the best steak, a beer or two of course. Great food, great staff, nothing to complain about. Across the road from Paronella Park. Come see, come stay, come enjoy. Cheers and safe travel to all

We stopped off at Mena Creek Hotel for a light lunch on the way to Paronella Park. The menu was quite varied for a country pub in the middle of nowhere, and the beer was cold. The staff were great, and came over to explain how they were experimenting with different flavour combinations with the crocodile, buffalo and kangaroo on the menu. All in all, an enjoyable experience.

We visited the pub for dinner while staying at Paronella Park. Our seafood meals were pleasant but not wonderful. Unfortunately as we were finishing are our dogs we were inundated by cigarette smoke. I informed the manager who proceeded to lie about moving the offenders. The designated smoking area was right next to dining tables and not the minimum 4 metres away. It ruined what could have been a pleasant evening.
