“Great food and service”
Reviewed 3 September 2014

My partner and I had dinner here and the food was cooked perfectly. The staff had no issues with a couple changes to the menu and the prices and quite fair considering they are quite large meals. There are beautiful views if you are enjoying your meal from the deck and can bump into some friendly locals. Overall the good and value was one of the better ones whilst traveling along the southeast coast.

I would stay here again any time. Room was clean and quiet. Staff were nice. And the food was great. Locals were fun to talk to and approachable, and I had a great night passing through. Meals and accommodation was a bit pricey on average, but don't let that stop you.

My partner and I had dinner here last night and it was great. The meals are huge! But wht I liked most was the exceptional local staff. I had a issue with my initial meal , which is irrelevant the issue because it was handled immaculate. Not only was I delt with by the kitchen staff to liaises the issue ( felt like they could handle constructive critisim / customer dissatisfaction ) I was given a new meal and a refund after I insisted that was not necessary. I have been to many types of restaurants and I like to be positive in my recommendations, great southern hotel has taken top of my list for hospitality service, internationally, I travel a lot. Thanks to the beautiful staff from 5pm 16th march for making our stop perfect along with snug cove BnB, perfection.

Room Tip: Good pub meals huge servings, great local value

If you are in Eden and looking for a good value Pub meal then you cannot go past the Great Southern Restaurant, great meals and good value, sit out on the deck and enjoy a great view of the Ocean, staff were very friendly, would certainly visit again.

Stayed one night in a double room. Almost half a centimeter of dust on all the baseboards, dirt covering all the surfaces and carpet warped and stained. Asked if there was a cleaner room available and the manager reluctantly 'upgraded' us to a balcony room which featured a wooden door rotting at its base. A previous occupant had left a pair a pair of large hoop earings on the dresser, which had, unlike the previous room at least been wiped down at some point. Found hairs in the bed of different varieties and had an altogether horrible night.

Asked about the wifi which is supposed to be included and were given a password which didn't work by the flippant manager. Did not bother to ask again as we were tired of disputing with the manager.

The only positive is that the bar cannot be heard from the room, though we were awoken late at night by a drunken conversation in the street between some exiting patrons.

Stayed May 2012, travelled as a couple

Small room, just the basics, seems there are upgrades available to larger rooms. Bar, restaurant, and gambling on the first floor. Restaurant food was good and they had a nice patio view of the ocean. Staff were very nice, friendly, and helpful. Located in the restaurant
and shopping area of this small oceanside fishing community. Prepay for the room and just leave the key in the room door when you leave.
