Customer Review

I hadn't been to this venue since I was in my 20's and was very surprised by the refurbishment of the hotel. Very pleasant atmosphere, good service and a good menu. The food that all of us ate was most enjoyable and will return again without hesitation.

The rooms are old and gross.
I wouldn't stay there again.
Spiders everywhere even wrapped in supposedly clean towels.
Taped up shower head.
Party room was freezing cold.
Not enough staff on for a party booking. Long waits for drinks.
Meals were good.

We had a wonderful time celebrating Mother's Day! The Mother's Day brunch was delicious. It was a great way to spend Mother's Day with my mother in law. would definitely recommend this place. staff was friendly and service was excellent. definitely we will come back. cheers.

Still waiting for my meal. Everyone at the table finished eating 20 minutes ago. The staff that are here are working really hard. Looks like they don't want to pay penalty rates on mother's day and therefore under staffed. Would not recommend. One of our friends pasta had to be returned twice. Inedible.

Myself and 3 friends stayed at the Peninsula hotel last Friday and Saturday night 23 and 24 of February. We have never stayed in such a disgusting place I don't think that it has been cleaned for ages. Went to put the electric blanket on the control was there but no blanket. Then the bed lamp would not work no globe water leaks in the bathroom and very dirty even the shower door would not close as for coffee, tea ,sugar and milk 3 of each and that was for the both days for 2 people. Ask for clean towels only to be told that they had none. One poor couple did not even get towels. When asked for more coffee, tea, sugar and milk they wanted $10. Another guest asked for a toaster that was also $10 . I did not receive a globe for the lamp as I was told that they are $10. And them stupid locks on the doors after complaining about the rooms Saturday morning and we were not nasty about it. Came back Saturday night and we could not get into our rooms. Had to get them to come over to let us in . We were not the only ones to complain the other guests did also. We are fairly sure that we were locked out
As far as we know the other guests that stay there for that weekend will never be back. Don't even think that there was a vacuum cleaner for the floors.

We had dinner last night and they were all beautiful meals. Steaks, chicken snitzel and seafood platter plus lovely salads and veggies. The staff and service were excellent. Very friendly and helpful We used to be regulars and we heard Meals etc had improved and we are so pleased to find that's true.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The food was nice. It is child friendly with a playground.

First time we've been here in 20yrs.
Our meals were served quickly and both cooked just the right amount.
I had the salmon, my wife chose Chicken Kiev.
The girl who served us came and checked how the meals were and if we were happy.
Great service.
We'll be back regularly because it's local.

Last night went here for my brothers birthday dinner
First off we ordered our meals at about 6:20 to not receive them till 7:45
When me and my older sister got our meals (chicken keiv) we had cut into the middle of it and saw it was completely raw on the inside (I'm 35 weeks pregnant) we had sent them back to get remade but then was told they had completely ran out of chicken so we decided to get our money back
This place has definitely gone down hill

It's a great place to go to with the fellas, have a nice little feed and some beers ( needs american beers) listen to some rough lookin sheila screech on the mic during karaoke, have some wasp tell you their life story in the small smoking area and just watch the creatures roll in.. Their is a bus that can drop you home or close enough.. it's not a a bad place.. Pokies room has a depressing Vibe but then again most do right? I met and saw the Slap King there and it was an absolute Privilege cheers guys.

Great menu , chicken schnitzel was absolutely beautiful and very fresh. The cob loaf was a little different from a few weeks ago, but it's so fresh and really easy to cut now. Family loved all meals thanks , meals are better than they have ever been

Look I am going to be honest, new owners have just bought and while they have not taken over it looks like this wonderful place is going to lose its menu and charm. Today there was no wine menu, drink variety was limited and the staff could do nothing about it. We ate outside and weren't even allowed to buy from the attached bottle shop 6 feet away. Food was amazing and staff were great but when Black Rhino take over it may just become a pokies joint with a buffet. Go at your own risk because it may be less than great in a short amount of time according to many locals. It will be a great loss.

I didn't stay here in the motel but I went for dinner here with my partner and child. Honestly couldn't have been more disappointed in the food and staff.
I ordered beef lasagna and couldn't even eat it. It was burnt on top and rock hard. Tasted disgusting. My daughter had nuggets and chips and her nuggets were a little pink and tasted disgusting. My partner has a parmi and it was so dry.

Staff didn't smile once the whole time we were there for dinner.

Playroom was disgusting and very dirty. My partner complained about a group of kids that had broken some stuff and were being very naughty and asked staff if they could speak to the parents of the kids as it was really not good and okay. These kids tried hurting my daughter while she was playing in the ball pit. I ended up having to go in and tell them off as their parents weren't doing anything to control their kids and the staff didn't seem to care.

We ended up leaving pretty much all our food that we spent $70 on and ended up at Maccas for more food since we were all super hungry.

Honestly wouldn't recommend going here at all unless you want to feel sick and have a horrible night.

Gnocci tastes different, very bland, had to add heap of salt for any sort of flavoring. Staff were wonderful like always, but play area isnt for kids under 12 like stated, older kids use it and are rough as anything. Overall hubby and kids enjoyed their meals
Steve Anset
We attended a group birthday party, the service was great, the quality of the meals was excellent, with short waiting times. Highly recommend for future gatherings. And later on we had fun with karaoke, the guy doing the karaoke is a people person and gets everyone involved for a great experience.

I had my 70th birthday celebration here on the 15th of October and nothing was too much, the staff on the night were pleasant and cheerful, the food was great and enjoyed by the family and friends. Service was prompt and well done, all in all we had a great time and we won't hesitate to celebrate here in the future. Thank you to all at the Peninsula hotel great venue.

The live music (whilst lovely) was way too loud. The bistro itself was loud with kids and lots of chatter which was fine but then added music on top made conversations near impossible. Ended up leaving with a migraine.
Food was good & the kids section looks pretty decent also.
They have pretty good weekly specials also with a massive range of parmi's on Monday & Tuesday

Feeling disappointed.We went somewhere else before.And they said that there kitchen closed at 2pm.So we rang forward to The Peninsula hotel.They said that the kitchen closed at 2:30 pm.So we raced there.We made it inside.And I showed my proof of Vaccine.Then my Mum who has diabetes,said she left her print out of her vaccine at home.,in her handbag.So we went into the foyer .And Mum suddenly remembered she had her vaccine print out,in her purse.So we went back in.And then the lady said the kitchen is closed.And it was still not quite 2:30 pm.You would think that she would make an allowance.As my Mum is nearly 80 years old.And was struggling with her walking.Hard for her to get in and out of the car.And obviously her memory is not so good anymore.Went to Hungry Jack for lunch.And they apologized for the wait.I would of thought being a hotel.The customer service would top notch.I think staff need to learn,how to provide proper costumer service.

Exceptionally friendly staff, lovely warm atmosphere loved the decor and Christmas decorations. Food arrived promptly, delicious meals, kids loved their portion sizes and the addition of the novelty bag is a wonderful idea to keep the little ones occupied. The band was a hit with the children dancing away on the dance floor such a great range of Christmas songs played, we all had a ball and look forward to coming back on out next trip to the area.
Dave Freeman
The Peninsula Hotel is not to bad.

The staff are very friendly, however, the decor is probably dated to describe it at its best.

The meals were not to bad, they arrived in a timely manner, yet, you have to emphasize what is classed as 'well done'.

I would return, however, that would be convenient more than desire.

Would I recommend it?

Not really. If you have time, find another dining experience.

Not 1 bit of garlic in my Kiev! That's what a Kiev is! Garlic!!! Friend had a meal come out with a cockroach on the plate! Waiter gave my bro in-law his meal and said, "I wouldn't eat that". These were on 3 different occasions. Never eating there again!

Love this place. although only visit on occasion, we've gone there for many years. Great food, good prices and atmosphere. Kids like it too. Go there if you haven't or even if you have...
Excellent service, The staff are all so friendly and did a wonderful job. We all loved our steaks and will definitely be back again soon for steak night.

Roast lamb dinner:The vegetables were lovely and fresh, unfortunately the meat was very rare hidden by gravy. Some people may like it under cooked but it was so chewy! I couldn't eat it. The lemon meringue pie was nice. All in all $20 dinner not to over priced but probably won't return!
Vicki Pickett
Lunch Wednesday with Mum. We had a great lunch in the hotel bistro. Covid check in at door and were seated in the large space out dining area close to the bar. The bistro is clean and comfortable with a great kids play area off one end of the dining with closed circuit TV for families. The menu was limited but had most of the pub favourites on there. We went for the Caesar salad $18 and crumbed sausages mash and gravy $15. The meals were large and delicious. The staff were friendly and attentive although there werent a lot of people there at lunch. There are special steak and parmigiana nights week days and Sunday carvery. Check for Live music dates. The pub is large for a suburban Geelong Pub it has Pokies venue TAB sports bar manned, function Area beer garden and drive thru bottle shop.they offer Take away food service and liquor and delivery is free up to 5 klms.There is a courtesy bus for locals as well. A great set up and friendly pub. Recommend

Although the venue is a little tired looking the inside atmosphere was a very pleasant surprise! Staff were all very friendly and because of this we decided to stay for dinner. It was absolutely lovely, comfort pub food at its best! Definitely will be back
