This unique hotel is in the heart of Bellingen.....a pretty town, not far from the beach. The rooms are basic and comfortable however good value for the price. I'm not one for sharing ammenities with others but in this case they are close to the rooms, modern and clean. The restaurant and beer garden is a great asset to the...

I've never stayed at a worse place. We had a room facing the main road which meant heavy trucks roar by at all times of the night within about 3 meters of the bed. The delivery trucks/ garbage trucks arrive every morning at 5.30 with load bangs, crashes and shouts. Our room let out onto the balcony. They use the...

We came here for dinner on New Year's Day. It was very busy for a few hours but the staff were great and the food took a while to come out but not that long. The tables were cleared and cleaned quickly and efficiently. I had the spring rolls and salmon and my husband had the chicken breast on a...

Thought this pub would have great food. Ordered a house hamburger with only ketchup and the salad that comes on it. Specifically said no sauce, no beers, who puts beers on hamburgers. The burger came out with beets and the bacon was fatty and undercooked. Not the best lunch I ever had. My wife ordered a veggie salad that she...

If your looking for simple clean accomodation then this is the go. The bathroom facilities are new and clean and the location is in the middle of it all. Great if your keen to have a beer or two and stumble up the stairs to bed. No aircon though so it can get a little stuffy. A really well priced...

When visiting the Coffs Harbour region you must take a small detour and visit Bellingen. A typical beautiful small country town that offers something for everyone. And especially when it comes to great food and service. After riding the motorbikes through amazing countryside we stopped in Bellingen at the Federal Hotel for lunch. The building and its ambiance is spot...

We had one night in bellingen recently it was mid week so many restaurants in town were closed so we decided to try the pub for dinner. The food was good, servings generous and the back dining outdoor area was nicely presented. The prices were reasonable and they have a daily specials for $12 every weeknight. I would eat here...

We went on a Monday night at 6.30pm and were completely surprised by how many people were dining here, the place was packed out. We were told the food was good and the service quick, so we settled into the bar for a drink and waited for a spare table. By 7.30 pm there were a few available, so we...
