Reviewed yesterday NEW

Travelling on my own, I got a budget room that had more than some of the rooms I have stayed in. Very clean and comfortable, plus rainwater for drinking made me feel at home. Very welcoming upon reception.

The rooms are very large, comfortable, and well-priced. The friendly lady running the place goes above and beyond for customers. Although we unknowingly ordered just after the kitchen was due to close, she stayed an extra hour to cook us a delicious dinner - all while juggling multiple other orders and the reception seemingly by herself! Breakfast was delivered at...

My husband and I stayed in Room 8 which was spotlessly clean and very quiet. Sandie was extremely hospitable and our evening meal was wholesome. Sandie also provided a map and information about the granite walks nearby.

Staff were helpful amenities are very basic, ground was hard for tent pegs. The only thing going for this place is the indoor pool if you are travelling during the warmer months. Ok for a stop over but that's it.

We enjoyed a deicious evening meal in the restaurant. The quondong pie was so delicious. The staff were very friendly and can't speak highly enough about their service. Lovely...

Stopped in on our trip, Perth to Darwin. Found staff helpful. Amenities clean, but door on the ladies ablution block on the far left malfunctioned and I had difficulty getting out (tip if they don't fix the door, turn it several hundred times til it opens).

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we appreciate your feedback, which helps us to improve our services. Maintenance issues (like sticky door locks) occur occasionally and our handyman attends to them during his shift. We do not have a playground on site as the local Council has provided a most excellent facility in the township which...

We stayed in a cabin when here as our zip had broken on our camper trailer. Impeccably clean and your own rain water tank. Really enjoyed our stay. Extremely helpful and friendly. Decided to eat in the restaurant instead of heading to Pub. Delicious. Fantastic set up also whether you were booking into the motel or caravan park. Nice and...

We stayed in a powered site for one night on our way to WA. The friendly greeting was very welcome after a day's travelling. The caravan park is at the back of the motel and is adequate for an overnighter or longer if you want to explore the region. The amenities are old as some other reviewers have stated but...

Thank you for your fabulous review Pamela. The restaurant certainly was buzzing that night. As a large consumer of the restaurant meals, I agree, the food is delicious. The girls in the kitchen do a fantastic job. Please have a wonderful Christmas and I look forward to seeing you again soon. Cheers.

What a pleasant stay on a long journey. Motel rooms were clean and well equipped. Value for money was superb. The restaurant served a meal that many city chefs would envy and Sandy, the host, is wonderful.
