A good stop over spot after the tanami. No complaints, amenities were clean and the grounds were well kept, the only small criticism would be the small stumps through the campground that are issues with tyres etc

We loved our stay here, the owners were very friendly and accommodating and nothing was too much trouble for them. There was only us and one other car camped the night we stayed and it was so quiet and peaceful. Well kept campground and clean amenities. The food was great too, we ate dinner in the restaurant and both of...

After driving from Wolf Creek Crater that morning we were in need of a break. Stopped here and were met by friendly staff. Reasonable prices for unpowered site, $15 per head. Good showers/toilets. Pool which would have been great if it was a bit warmer. Quiet and dark at night which was a change from some of the places we've...

Camped at Wolfe Creek the previous night and then drove the Tanami Track down to Tilmouth Well. It was a full day so the sight of the lights of the roadhouse was very good to see. We camped in the campground which is quite large and has some shady trees. Facilities are basic but there is hot water which is...

What a great place. The fuel isn't cheap but u need it for the long haul across the Tanami. We stayed in a room. Very basic room with almost zero furnishings. But there is a lounge inside which we should have used. Complimentary breakfast was included. Amenity blocks are good and clean. There is an area the size of an...

A welcome find in the outback!! Very friendly staff and a great veggie burger.. What more could you ask for? The diesel fuel price was reasonable considering you are a captive audience there.. We did not camp but it seems to be a good place to stop and smell the roses

The first impression when you go there is that you are really welcomed, there are managers that seem really nice and friendly. The food they r offering is just a big joke. I had my hamburger with a lot and i didnt find a meat paddy, just ridicioulous. If you are a backpacker don't go there cause they hate backpackers...

Good morning disgruntled travelers. What a shame ex-employees feel the only way to voice their unfounded allegations is to resort to social media and make up a stories and write negative comments. Social media is great for sharing information and we welcome it. However that information needs to be based on the truth. And we know from over 20 plus...

I have stayed here twice in the past month. Just a little less that two hours from Alice. All amenities very good even Internet. The service is great and the greenest lawn you will ever see and it is in the Tanami desert. I had a scotch fillet cooked perfectly. The service always with a smile and the beds very...

We stayed at Tilmouth Well following a few days on the Tanami Track, hoarding water and with dust red hair. While the hotel cabins are basic they had one very important aspect, the best bed we have slept on in any hotel in three months, including hotels in centra locations at twice the price. Cabins do not have ensuites but...

The campground at Tilmouth Wells was fabulous - great amenities block, perhaps a bit tired but considering the remote location, quite surprisingly good. Stunning sunset and sunrise and ample room to set up tents and enjoy the surrounds. Interesting paraphernalia lying around - and the hot chips from the roadhouse were fantastic!!
