The weather was hot, just prior to the "wet" season. Our room was comfortable with all the basic necessities provided. Overall the room was well presented & clean, but the floor was grotty. Gardens are inviting & the atmosphere peaceful. There are dongas for less cost. The grounds open onto the bay, but crocodiles are always a worry.

I am giving this a very good. The restaurant has a great meal which you need after a big day out in the heat. The restaurant actually was excellent. The rooms on the other hand are average. I have stayed in many mining towns and I find it's the little things that make a difference. Even with donger style rooms,...

Spent 5 nights here while fishing for barra. Hotel accommodation was clean with 2 single beds in my room. Restaurant was very good and they even cooked some of our catch each night. Hotel is also the local pub and the locals were friendly. One drawback was the lack of a swimming pool within the grounds

Great food and more than enough on your plate. Prices are very reasonable and very good service and helpful staff. In a very nice setting. We sat outdoors on a warm night the lighting in the trees makes it very easy on the eye. Just off the beach a lot of locals use the Albatross which is always a good...

When there are not a lot of options for places to stay in a remote community it is a pleasant surprise to find a quality establishment. The rooms are basic but clean and comfortable. The tariff is high but understandable for the location. Dinner at the restaurant was hectic and drawn out given a full house and strong local patronage...

Rooms are not much, but for weipa it is great. Mary was the funniest and nicest lady I have met in the north and she made our stay a dream. Restaurant is exceptional, the meals are original and portions are large.
