Toilets are a disaster, only one male toilet, two showers for whole Caravan Park. Females are two toilets and two showers. Condition of Male and Females showers toilets are that they haven't had a good clean in a...

Rooms were clean, staff very friendly despite being under workload pressure. Meals were great. Would stay here again. Great to spend a night in the middle of 'nowhere' after a long day on the road heading from Western Australia

Some decent tourist items to buy at the roadhouse. If crossing the Nullarbor you really SHOULD take timeout to visit the roadhouse museum. It's not just about skylab there's really good information and displays there and it's free entry, geology, history, animal poo identification (that the kids will enjoy), and yes skylab which in itself is interesting enough:-)

For a basic room, which was all we needed it was a bit on the dear side. We travelled from Perth to ACT and our other two nights accommodation were cheaper for similar rooms (one in Wudinna was $80. and included breakfast). Our room was clean and tidy. It had two bottles of shampoo and conditioner which was nice. It...

There seems to be a competition between Balladonia roadhouse and Border Village roadhouse to see which can be the worst place to stay. Border village seems older and a bit tireder construction wise but takes greater efforts to keep it all clean. Balladonia while seems newer in build is tired and a bit dirty, there was a review from a...

No sink but a kettle? Bathrooms not very clean... dead flies all over the window sill and they had forgotten to sweep or mop behind the bathroom door for about 5 years! I wore thongs in the shower. Bed was comfy but could have done with a mattress protector. Pretty steep price for aging fittings. Curtains didn't close to keep...

We stopped at the roadhouse after starting out from Perth early in the morning. Got to Balladonia about 4.30pm. Needed diesel and it was reasonably priced. Booked into the camping area. The pleasant German employee told us it would be $42 for the stay as we had 5 people travelling with us (2 adults, 3 kids). The camping area was...

We didn't expect much when it came to accommodation crossing the Nullarbor but this was a disappointment. The family room was grim but could have been easily improved with out much cost - a proper clean, some fresh curtains and quilt covers and mattress protectors would go a long way. The pool was green, unusable and a breeding ground for...

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...
