Roadhouse romantic for $180. Backrooms next to the toilet block where impacted by the odour, so we asked for a front room. Renovated. Roomy. Recommended. Return visit? Most likely if the opportunity arises.

The room for $180 was unexpectedly roomy and recently renovated. Huge flat screen TV, separate toilet and bathroom made for a pleasant stay. Ill stay there again if the opportunity arises. Rooms come in varpus sizes and prices. The front rooms all appear to be recently renovated.

Stayed here overnight on our way to Alice, cheap clean accommodation. Had meals that were reasonable (the outback grill should state what is in it) Games room to keep the kids entertained while you enjoy a cold beer in the bar during happy hour :)

We stopped here for a welcome overnight stay on the way to Uluru. The room was comfortable and the shower was great. You need to drink bottled water here, they supplied us with a large bottle. We had takeaway hamburgers which were great. Overall this is a good stopover in a remote location, I would stay here again.

We've stayed here twice now, once in the rooms and once in the unpowered campground. The campground gets very busy so try to arrive early. No set spots in the unpowered area, so people just make their own spots so gets hard to try and fit yourself in between people (especially with a camper trailer!). In saying that, it's only...

We arrived at Marla about 4.00pm, booked in then found a good site. The sites were set up differently, and in our case we just parked on the edge of a squared area which had grass. We did not hear the generated to much there, but you have got to expect that if you want power. The staff were good...

Stayed here heading north to Uluru. Powered site tripped often and given the usual excusez that we were sucking too much power via a 10 amp fuse but the next power source worked perfectly. Bbqs were very dirty but soon cleaned up by staff. On return journey food from cafe was pretty good. Has a pool but was too old...

This is a fine 'one night stand'. No bookings are taken for camp sites so it's 'first in, best dressed'. The staff were friendly and helpful. The layout of the van sites was a little to other parks. The sites an are drive-through' so easy set up. Park on the gravel and set out of the van on to grass;...

We stayed one night on a powered site. Staff were very friendly but some advice on the sites would have been helpful. We stayed at the back of the grounds to avoid road train noise without realising there was a generator that ran 24 hours. Our site was also in the path of staff returning to their accommodation and a...

On the road to South Australia, a pleasant stop. The room was very clean, the staff were helpful. The bar has a lot of character. The food was fresh, although not very inventive. There were a large number of people there but the staff seemed to deal with it very efficiently.

Thank KeithLea
