A Total Gem. Incredible pub lovingly and uniquely restored by its owner Bob who is a fantastic and authentically warm host. Our Upstairs Family room and common areas were generous, and amazing - curated with vintage collectables. A huge bonus was being able to bring our Jack Russell 'Boo' who played for hours with Bob's gorgeous staffy wingpup 'Shelby'. An overall awsome experience staying here on our recent travels through the Wimmera/Mallee. Thanks Bob and Shelby.

A great spot to rest up on the trip from Adelaide to Melbourne. Bob is a terrific host and Shelby is a dutiful pub dog who checked out all comers. The room was clean and the facilities (shared bathroom and kitchen) were functional but clean. But make sure you get your earplugs in before going to bed as the truck traffic doesn't rest.

Bob the bartender and Shelby the caretaker! Best pub in Victoria. Hands down don't miss out on this place. Mini beers and mini Guinness are fantastic.

Great spot and pub. Allowed us to park our caravan out the back. Pizza for dinner and great old fashioned country pub atmosphere. Would stay here again.

With all the feels of a traditional true blue dinky di country pub, you just can't go past the Commercial hotel in Kaniva. The food was perfect pub grub and I received the warmest of welcomes from Bob the publican and Shelby the pub dog. This pub oozes beautiful country charm, the decor and memorabilia resonates with that of a museum.

The rooms are super clean, good sizes and comfy beds. The shared bathroom and toilets were immaculate and honestly there is nothing that I could fault with little slice of good old Australian History.

Do yourself a favour and pop in for a day or two at the Commercial Hotel Kaniva - you won't regret it.

My partner and I had an overnight stay in Kaniva as part of our road trip. Looking for food we followed Google reviews to the Commercial Hotel and I'm so glad we did. A charming hotel, full of character with a delightful publican, Bob, who greeted us and introduced himself when we arrived. Well done Bob! It was pizza night and two pizzas and lots of chats later we reluctantly left. What a great find. Highly recommended ???.

Incredible hotel in the middle of the road between Melbourne and Adelaide, the owner, Bib, was so polite and ready to help us, the rooms were incredible, and bathroom too, everything was so clean, and with a magical atmosphere, we arrived to the bar and Bob asked us if we have a room, he showed some to us and then we share a beer till late with him talking about the life and looking a rugby match.
Thank you for everything bob!!

A hidden Gem. Friendly service, comfortable and clean rooms. The meals are amazing! You can't go past the rump for the steak lovers (cooked to perfection) walking distance to the main shopping precinct. In the final stages of renovations. Will definitely visit again.

A Gem of a pub on the highway, The host Bob was very welcoming and a delight to chat too. The food was fantastic, I had the Flathead fillets with chips and vegetables which was delicious. The whole hotel has been refurbished to a great standard with lots of artefacts adorning the walls.
I ended up staying the night and was quite surprised by the room's upstairs, being freshly refurbished and comfortable. Make sure this hotel is part of your journey on the great western highway!

Stopped by for dinner on our road trip. One of the best chicken Parmas I've ever had. Pool room is awesome and the publican is as friendly and helpful as they come.

What a gem! A rare find. Classic country pub, friendly publican with warm and cosy vibes. We would've stayed longer than two pints but no food on Tuesdays. Would definitely recommend and look forward to returning once upstairs accommodation is complete.
Shelby the pub staffy also deserves her own 5 Star reviews.

Was passing through Kaniva back to SA and noticed this pub with the lunch signs out and I'm glad I did.
This is a fantastic place and the owner is a legend and recommended me the best steak I've had in ages.
The town is very lucky to have this gem of a place and I can't wait to pass through and stop again.

If you are traveling the Western Highway or visiting Kaniva, this is a must see. This is a landmark historical pub and the interior has been recently completely renovated and transformed with an amazing collection of quirky memorabilia. Pop in and have a drink. Classic pub food with lunches and dinners available at selected times.

Just been there having a stop over lunch, Bob is a very helpful and warm-hearted fellow and his dog (sorry I forgot the name) is absolutely the superstar as a bellboy! Food were served very quick and taste very nice, very good lunch location if you want to sit down rather than eating and driving to Adelaide.

We parked our caravan behind the pub at Bob's invitation and stayed there at no cost We are fully self contained). Enjoyed a delicious dinner, home made chicken schnitzel and parmigiana with a couple of drinks. Bob is very welcoming and the locals were friendly, fun and welcoming. Highly recommend a visit.

Unbelievably amazing service, food and rooms around the entire venue, including the guest stay areas.
Bob the Publican is a very, very good host and I hope to return soon to more of the great service and surrounds of his venue. Outstanding.

Try to mark which foods contain allergens.. I don't just ask to be fussy. Yes my chips did have a flour batter. However, nice people and good atmosphere.
