Paul and Liz are so welcoming. The home cooked meals were delicious and the scenery in Waratah was just beautiful. I can't wait to come back.

We had a comfortable stay and really enjoyed the evening meals downstairs in the dining room. The hotel was the life of the area and had many people coming through, to enjoy a drink, meal, game of pool or have a go at karaoke! It is also well located and a good base to get to many great bushwalking.
