This is a hotel that begs to be transformed. In fact it begs to have just about anything done to it because it's pretty shabby now. We visited for lunch only. Walking through the 'lobby' it feels like an dormitory building from the 50s - but not in a good way. In fact, even though this is the hotel's main entrance, it looks like an area that's not used - old toilet doors, an open storage room and a dark, dingy corridor. When you enter the dining room, this is where you can see the potential of the place. It's a beautiful view of the river from big windows that opens onto a deck area and lawn. Orders are taken at the bar and we both chose the special of the day - my favourite fish, goldband snapper ($38). Our meals arrived very quickly, (too quickly), with a side of salad and chips. The fish was lukewarm suggesting it had been cooked earlier, tasteless and covered in a fatty, yellow sauce topped with two thin asparagus spears. The small salad was standard and the 'wedges' were out of a packet. We felt ripped off - could have had a lovely meal at a stylish winery for about the same price. Two stars - just for the view.
