We had a great time in Gulgong accommodation was outstanding in the centre of town which made it very convenient, A great place and a bit of a snap shot of life in the early part of Australia, would highly recommend.

On the road again and stopped for lunch at the Prince of Wales. Hadn't been here for at least eight years and the place hasn't changed. Still the same friendly service, great food, cold beer. Lunch specials for $6? Now you can't go wrong with that! We had the $6 Fish N' Chips which were yummy. Well worth a visit...

Accommodation, food and ambiance were excellent! We had 14 Ulysses friends stayed at your motel and it ticked all the boxes. We have stayed there on previous occasions with the Ulysses motorcycle group, and no doubt this will become a regular venue at Gulgong.

The best salad I've had in a long time. Great food - try the homemade cookie dough ice cream. Great Aussie character with friendly bar staff. Salt and pepper calamari excellent- all round a great pub.

Staff: very friendly and helpful Accommodation: for the price, it was great. Very clean and comfortable. One set back was walking out of your room to other guests smoking outside their room - because of the closeness of the cabins this was unpleasant. An allocated area for smokers would be my suggestion. Pub food: nice food but a little overpriced....

The room was great and staff and management were wonderful. We arrived in the pouring rain on motorcycles and they helped by keeping the kitchen open for a hot meal and fires open to dry out our gear.

What a great pub to stay at. Restaurant is amazing and the big rump was one of the best I've ever had. Bar staff are awesome and chatty. Beer on tap was crisp and clean so obviously they have a great cellarman. Accommodation was great with good sized room, comfy beds and great bathroom. Foxtel on the tv and a...
