Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very dirty, dilapidated and outdated. The room was so bad that we were moved to another room. Instead of apologising, the staff just gave excuses and argued. The room we were moved to was not much better and had sounds of the freight trains all night. I would stay very far from this hotel. Banisters, tiles, plastering ect. broken

Only spent one night here on the way to the Flinders Ranges. The building is lovely and historic, and our room was huge. The bed was comfortable and we had a nice sunset view out the window. Walking distance to a nice park and a few fast food restaurants. The centre of town is a short drive away. The woman at reception was friendly and helpful. Off street secure parking was available and wifi was good throughout the building.

Recently stayed for 1 night while travelling through. Don't let the rough looking building on the outside or the fact you need to call a number for someone to come and check you in put you off. The owner is friendly and extremely helpful. The inside of the building is renovated. We booked a motel room which is out the back, not in the main building. Room was clean and spacious. The little court yard was perfect to enjoy takeaway dinner in. Would stay here again if ever travelling through or visiting.

We stayed for only one night but we were so happy to stay here. Quiet during night on public holiday even just next to the train line. It could be depending on the day? Very clean room and linen. Painting and artificial flowers made us relaxed. Spacious room and bathroom. Car can be parked in front of the room in secured place. Would book here next trip again.

The manager of this hotel went over and beyond to help us. We booked late and arrived late and he fitted our 2 campers behind locked gates in a small area. Nothing was too much for him. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and in walking distance to an excellent hotel up the road and laundromat just across the road. We will be staying here again. Highly recommend.

This place changed hands just a couple of days after I stayed in October 2019 but the lady that checked me in was lovely and the whole ambience of the joint was brilliant. Make sure you read the descriptions of the rooms and amenities to make sure you know what you are getting but the place has a lovely vibe and the rooms really took me back. Older travellers will love it especially. The parking is off-street and secure which is a bonus and it's out of the very centre of town. If you've a larger vehicle you won't have trouble getting a park on the street outside and overall my stay was worth every penny.

This dear old motel was there at the end of a 12 hour drive with clean sheets and cold water. It’s a very old building with motel accommodation attached. We stayed in the hotel part - 8 rooms upstairs. The rooms have fans and air conditioning and a little fridge. The bathrooms and toilets are shared and very clean. There’s also a shared kitchen for tea/coffee or to heat something in the microwave. As with all small hotels and motels in Australia, I urge you to book with them direct, over the phone. Booking agents online raise the price for you and take a massive commission that doesn’t go to the owners and their community.

We loved staying here. Our room was a ‘budget’ room but it was anything but. Lovely bed, high ceilings, tv, aircon/fan, your own fridge and sink. The shared bathroom and kitchen were extremely clean. We sat outside and used the bbq for dinner and it was great. Such incredible value for money. Wishing the current owner all the best with her move to Adelaide.

Upon arrival to Pampas the women on the desk was the most rude person I’ve ever encounted and I work in hotels and resort, she very rudely told us to go back and close the door, even know we were unaware that the horrible noise was made from the door, and then the wind pushed open a box on the wall and she very rudely said close that. Even know it opened on its own, she was over all very rude and unfriendly. Tried to tell me I made a mistake even know I didn’t we had called a month in advance to call and bring the day forward by one night and she made out like it was a big issue. Honestly she was so horrible and rude.
