what the judges said in 2018
It was easy to see why the Brewhouse was alive with clientele on a cold winter’s night. This hotel has achieved the almost impossible. It is a chameleon – all things to all people. When we arrived, there were kids running around the beer garden in the dark, the bistro was filled with large groups, many with small children. The bistro diners had spilled over into an overfill area. Upstairs was quieter and more subdued, in a genteel fashion of sorts. But in spite of all the activity we were attended to perfectly well and it seemed almost intuitive how we were guided to the upstairs dining area beside the whisky bar. The wine and spirits list here is very impressive. For those occasions when you would like explore the wine region but have limited time, you will find a great examples at the Queenscliff Brewhouse. Each area of the hotel is designed for a different market and the team was adept at recognising where newbies (such as us) would feel most comfortable. By the time we left the hotel, the demographic had changed again.
Great ambience. Good quality foods and presentation. Impressive wine list. Incredible list of whiskies and gins. Family friendly. Good customer service and value for money.
