Accomodation is warm, well priced and very comfortable. Food is tasty, staff are nice, good selection of drinks. Would recommend for a stay or just a meal.

Stayed one night. Basic accommodation but it was warm and clean with a modern bathroom. Perfect location right across from the wilderness railway which is why we were here. Simple breakfast offered the next day, juice, toast, cereal etc. Nice staff in our experience. Disappointing dinner. We ordered the pumpkin risotto and it came out as plain white risotto with a pile of puree pumpkin in the middle. It was like they didn't know you were supposed to mix it? Added chicken but it wasn't much for the extra $6 and it was burnt, which I personally don't mind but most would. Flavors just didn't seem to work together. Hubby ordered a steak and Veggies. Steak was great but veggies were plain and needed seasoning. Fish bites for the entree was yummy. Very impressed with our young server who actually truly did seem interested in getting the food right. He asked us how they could improve and that was impressive. Historic setting, I enjoyed reading about the stair case and looking at the art.

Don't recommend staying here unless you're backpacking.
We paid for 4 nights but only stayed the 1, room was tiny and covered in dust, noisy generator kept us awake all night. Staff were rude, information pamphlet misleading. We found amazing accommodation elsewhere for not much extra per night.

Very friendly staff, had a great parmy, many a beer (fairly priced) and had a great night in watching the footy and sharing a yarn with locals and tourists alike. Very happy to be able to tuck the motorbikes away for the night in the closed bottle shop for safe keeping also! Thanks :)

We stayed one night in this hotel and paid $200.00 for two people. The building is very old and charming, got lots of character, but unfortunately our room was not that clean. The floor was dirty and the bathroom was not that clean either. The shower was dripping, cracked window, open manhole in the ceiling. TV and internet was not working. I mentioned it to the duty manager, but she didn't seem that concerned at all. The beds where comfortable and the cheets clean, but that was all. A very sad depressing place. ?

This is a great place to stay if you are planning a trip on the West Coast Wilderness Railway. Rooms are clean and tidy. The food is terrific too, but their hidden gem is Shirley on the dining room. This lady goes above and beyond to make you feel at home. A real genuine person.

We had heard a lot of good things about The Empire so we booked our table and were looking forward to it. However when we went to order we were told us there was hardly anything left on the menu, just garlic bread, calamari and a couple of other things. Im sure its not like this all the time, but just a heads up not to get your hopes high. Staff were all very nice.

You get got value for your money. I really liked my stay. The bathrooms have been nicely renovated. The rooms however might need some love in the future. But overall a good hotel.

Just went for a meal here, and it was amazing!! Beautiful dining room and the staircase is gorgeous. My family all enjoyed our meals, and the staff were all really helpful and friendly.

Quite lovely old hotel. We had a meal in the bistro. Best pub food we had throughout our stay. There were plenty of selections that weren't deep fried. Had a lamb shank which was very tasty.

Great location. Beautiful old building. Beds were comfortable, rooms were quiet. Clean and freshly renovated bathrooms. Dinner at the pub is good value, breakfast included in the room fee.

Great location, comfortable but tight double bed room. Easy to get dinner...downstairs. Also a handy continental breakfast. Can be a little noisy depending on the pub downstairs.

We didn't stay at the hotel but went for a meal. The food and selection was very good and the prices while not cheap were reasonable. We also checked out the staircase as everyone says is a must do! Beautiful craftsmanship. If in Queenstown you should give it a try, if in Winter there won't be much choice.

The staff were welcoming and friendly. But for $143 my queen bedroom was underwhelming. While presenting well from outside, the interior of the hotel was very tired. The Empire has amazing bones, I just wish it lived up to it's potential.

Quaint rural pub, some room for improvement but overall a good reliable place. Friendly staff. The dining room lighting could be better. Rooms basic but clean.

Mushroom risotto is a letdown. I thought it was a vegetarian dish but there was bacon in it and can barely see or taste any mushroom. Bar is cozy though.

We popped in here from dinner on recommendation from the hotel we were staying at. It's a stunning 1900s building and our dinner was quick and delicious (surprisingly delicious!) Garlic bread, bangers and mash and my partner really enjoyed his steak. Country atmosphere with friendly locals and staff.

Popped in for some dinner. It was relatively inexpensive and the food was pretty decent. Food was typical 'pub food', and the portion sizes were plentiful. The venue had some great character too it, and the staff were really friendly and helpful! The hotel/restaurant is in a great central location. The restaurant was pretty clean, and we're confident the hotel and rooms were the same too.

Great old hotel with plenty of old world charm and character. The staircase is a gem. The food I heard was fantastic. Good value and a positive experience each time.

Cute little spot.
I got the warm pumpkin salad and it was delicious.
Fresh chicken for my daughter was perfect and chips were different - like hand cut and tasted amazing.
Adults got schinttys and they all said it was a good pub meal. Will visit every night whilst in town.
