Balladonia Roadhouse is situated just 180 km in from the western start of the 2000km Eyre Highway yet the fuel price was the most expensive we encountered for the entire Perth to Newcastle trip. The rooms were adequate and as expected for this remote but surprisingly busy part of Australia. The evening meal did not agree with me and I...

We wanted to book a camper site and have spoken German to the german employee. As the men heard it, he has forbiden us to talk in German, because we are here in Australia and therefore only english is spoken. He refused us booking and banished us from the roadhouse

Standard motel room was clean, and fittings all worked. As good as it gets along here. $140 a night is a bog standard motel room price between Norseman and Ceduna. One minus was the curtains which didn't block out the morning light very well, not handy when it starts getting light about 4 am. There are plusses to Balladonia though....

In a 3mth and 22,600km motorcycle trip around A/a this stands out as one of the best. Very comfortable and secure rooms, surprisingly good dinner and breakfast choices, made for a great spot to recharge a bit. Don't miss the free museum, including the Skylab history and relics from when it crashed nearby.

We didn't stay but we stopped for a rest break, fuelled up the car and ourselves. Good friendly service, asked for a beer and wine by the glass where there were several choices. Had the Steak Sandwich, toasted, really tasty, maybe not fine dining presented but it was really nice. Filled us up until late dinner that night. Roadhouse has...

It was the end of a 13 hour drive so any bed was good, the room clean and well maintained without any facilities other than a jug. The rate was a bit over the top but we just needed somewhere to put our head down and the Tavern which is part of the complex charges excessive rates as they have...

This was out first stop on a trip from perth to Melbourne. We had a cabin in the caravan park side and I have to say the bed was very comfortable. The unit was clean and well appointed with plenty of tea and coffee supplies. We ate at the road house restaurant and wow what a surprise, it was well...

This was the first roadhouse we stayed in on our trek across the Nullabor from Perth. Clean small cabins with comfortable beds and clean showers. As already stated by other travellers everything is expensive on the Nullabor due to the cost of delivery and the running of theses places. We loved this stopover and were the only people staying in...

Roadhouse food, fuel, decent campground with clean bathrooms. Google maps could not be more wrong giving us directions there. Found it just by going farther down Eyre hwy. Didn't eat anything, but I saw others and it looked ok.

You will not find nicer accommodation, and friendlier staff between Kalgoorlie and Ceduna. I can't put it any simpler than that. I see a lot of comments here about price etc, but really what do you people expect? Its not exactly suburbia is it - there's nothing for 100's of kilometers in any direction. It costs a lot to run...
