I didn't stay in this hotel - just ate dinner there one night. The baked gnocchi was a warm and hearty, scrumptious meal - good food, good value.

Starving for lunch in Beechworth at 2pm, our group of four headed to the Commercial expecting reliable pub food and a relaxed atmosphere. We waited more than half an hour for drinks which never arrived. When our food finally arrived after over 40 minutes, one dish was burnt and another was inedible. We'd had enough at this point and just wanted to leave quietly, without too much fuss. The chef/owner was unbelievably aggressive when we asked for our money back, taking our concerns extremely personally, pointing in my face and refusing to acknowledge any problems with the food.
He kept walking away from us as though hoping we would leave without our money, and when we asked other staff if they could find out where he was, they washed their hands of the situation and walked away too. We turned away over half a dozen other potential patrons during this unpleasant scene, when all we wanted to do was leave and finally get some lunch.

We eventually got our money back, but I will never, ever be going there again.

Went there for lunch and the place was empty. We waited 40 mins for a Parma, lasagna and marinated olives. We also ordered and paid for drinks that never came out. When we received the food there was a hair in the olives and the Parma was burnt and we still had no drinks. When we requested our money back the chef was rude and argued with us and then just walked off. There was no apology for the wait, lack of drinks or food quality. Would NEVER go back again.

We had dinner for 4 at the hotel and the meal was fine, but the service was extremely slow - we waited 40 mins, and there was no apology at all - just a comment to indicate that it was quite normal to wait for that long. We've been there twice now - never again though.
