Do not go there the management is terrible, you can see them screaming at the staff, the hole thing is scrabby I went there with friends and was glad when we could leave They do have a little supermarket that is 5 times more expensive, paying 5$ for a already mashed banana

On our way to Alice Springs and stopped here on a very hot day, 44c. The staff were friendly, we got to choose our own powered campsite. The facilities were ok but were hot, yes we were here in the summer. Not a bad oasis in the middle of nowhere.

Only 2 hours north of Coober Peady. This place is a great option for camping. Green glass, for your tent. Facilities are clean and basic. Multiple accommodations options. Plus a bar, restaurant petrol station and grocery store. Fast service.

We stayed here on our trip North and had travelled 1160k this day so we were certainly looking forward to a stop. I had booked and had received a confirmation email from Lisa advising was booked and the cost. On arrival a NOT so happy lady served us and all she could say was we hadn't booked... I attempted to...

Stayed here overnight with 8 friends on the way to the NT. We all stayed in swags out the rear of the park. The area was ok but lacked a bit of shade. The most annoying part is a diesel generator that runs all night with a loud engine noise. Apart from that it's pretty good you get what you...

I booked and was given an upgraded room in the front of the motel which was large , clean and functional. No bugs etc. seen , bed was comfortable and road noise was minimal. Food quality and quantity was good also. Reading other trip reports perhaps booking an upgraded room is the way to go. I certainly had no problems...

Here for 2 nights, 1 at the beginning of the week, then another towards the end as in the area for work. Problem started from the beginning, made accommodation bookings weeks ago, went to check in & nothing was on the system. After calling a manager in & 15 minutes later we had FINALLY been given rooms. On our second...

Unfortunately we have no choice but to stop at places like this on the Stuart Highway! There toilets are filthy and a health hazard each time we stop, not just a one off! Coffee disgusting! Picnic tables on the grass broken and lacking seats. Shame, they have enough business so no excuse!

It was my second (and third) stay here - once for one night and again the next week for two nights. Still very average - if I could stay somewhere else I would, though it's the only option (I was working in the area). Some of the rooms have been done up a bit and those are ok, but often...

The rooms are large but when we went in the floor was covered in bugs, otherwise the bathroom was clean, the room big enough for 3 adults. Comfortable enough for an overnight stop. It has been awhile since I stayed there and not much has changed.
