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.

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.
