We won a travel auction and were allocated to a standard room. This is an accurate description - standard! The room was roomy, clean and well lit. A microwave oven was provided but no plates or cutlery. Fortunately we travel with our own folding cutlery and melamine plates. However, all electrical appliances worked well. Room service consisted of two water... More

We pulled into Hawker on the afternoon of the Bathurst race and headed to the pub to watch the last hour or so. We found the staff friendly and we quite enjoyed ourselves. We returned later for dinner where we dined on honest pub fare. Good, friendly service combined with tasty food saw us return the following evening which we... More

We have called in to this pub on a few occasions and this is the first time when have been disappointed..................we didn't stay in the rooms because the atmosphere when walking into the pub was awful. The barmaid Megan was quite cold and when we asked what beer they had on tap the answer was "we only have bottles"......she then... More

As per the title, typical country pub with standard country pub food. We didn't stay here - just had a meal. Layout of the pub wasn't particularly user friendly and the dining room was quite noisy due to a rattly 1970s/1980s air conditioner - quite thankful it was on though as quite cold outside. No entrees or desserts but the... More

We only had dinner but enjoyed it, the service was friendly and being July we were warm but ate in the bar because the air cond in the dining room was noisy. The meal was good pub food not flash but good when you just need a feed in or around the Flinders.

A standard room but nice given the location. We were accepted as a last minute booking and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was simple but adequate. Warm and friendly environment. Laundry facilities were helpful too. I'd recommend if you want a night away from camping!

Attended here for dinner one Saturday evening. The décor is dated. There was one barmaid serving the front bar, lounge & taking meal orders, plus making coffees. She was friendly & informative about what was on the menu. I ordered a rump steak with vegetables & mash then sat at the only table that was free which had some dirty... More

Having 'won' the Hawker Hotel/Motel in the Travel Auction we (my wife and I) looked forward to a weekend break. We found the weekend to be restful only spoilt by the accommodation. We were housed in the 'old' part of the Motel accommodation, probably due to the fact that we had won this in the auction, and not in the... More

We are used to outback travelling so didn't expect too much - just looking for a clean room and a feed and we got it. The motel is really the pub with a few motel style rooms out back. The pub is a typical country pub and as usual staffed by back packers which takes away from the authenticity of... More

We decided to eat here on a Sunday night. Although Hawker is known as an "outback town" we expected a reasonable meal. We had the worst meal we have had in a long time. We both ordered Chicken Breasts, one with a sauce described as "rose sauce". Both with chips and salad. Mine came in and looked so unappetising that... More

So sorry your meal was not up to scratch. We would love to have resolved this issue on the evening had I been informed of your concerns. Since your visit we have had some significant upgrades to our kitchen both staff and menu. So why not give us another chance next time you are visiting our beautiful part of the... More
