The National Hotel
Serivce was great. the lunch special steak sandwich was tough. nice place, but wouldnt order the steak sandwich again
No happy that we booked the next level up weeks ahead and got shoved on the bottom floor 1 day prior I won't be back
The venue is very nice, the menu has plenty to choose from and the bar has a great selection of drinks. I do feel that the menu is quite pricey though, especially charging $25 for a Chicken Parmigiana.
Although I had a brilliant experience and would recommend anyone visiting The National Hotel, my friends and I had a very odd encounter which has left a sour taste in our moths.
I was quite appalled when a staff member accused my me and my friends, as we were leaving the venue, of doing drugs when we simply went to the downstairs bathroom. I imagine because 3 of us went together, it obviously meant we were up to no good.
This was very random as I left the bathroom to a commotion of the waitress accusing my friend who was waiting for us (sitting on a stool waiting) of my friends and I of heading in the bathroom to do drugs, and we were threatened of being kicked out and "had to stay on the first floor".
We both had the Parma and it was pipping hot and delicious, chips were very nice and the side salad was fresh and had a tasty dressing
Excellent service and food, first time there and we we’re very happy
Excellent service on a lovely roof deck.
all meals very good and good value and very good presentation.
really enjoyed this casual dining venue
Dinner with friends. Great table service. Menu and wine list not extensive but what was available was good and at reasonable prices. No issue with finding a place to park the car. Will return.
Went for a couple of Friday drinks after work, food was excellent and service was outstanding!
Loved the upstairs room. Staff were friendly and helpful. Food was really nice.
Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Would recommend.
Best service, great food and good beers on tap! Very friendly staff
Delicious food and awesome ambience. Great experience upstairs at the rooftop bar!
Sat in the roof top, Great customer service, atmosphere was perfect but parmis small for the price !
First visit since the renovations and the first impressions were great. We will definitely be back, well done. Looking forward to a session in the upstairs bar.
The National Hotel was pretty much the only place left in Geelong with Friday night available, I'd never been there, never even heard of the place before. I'm so glad we did book there! The hotel is lovely inside, the food was superb and the staff were fantastic. I'd definitely come back again.
I ordered the chicken burger and to be honest the size of the chicken was so very small. I didn’t complain on the night as I understand business is getting back on its feet but it’s certainly something you should look at fixing. I’d think twice about coming back with meals like that.
Excellent venue great service. Top floor is beautiful
The server in the dining room was amazing, she did a really great job!
Really enjoyed my evening, the food and drinks were great, the staff were lovely.
Lovely comfortable atmosphere. Good menu choices. Service was friendly and efficient. Meals were pleasing for the 5 of us who had dinner. Would definitely return.
