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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I spent a lovely 2 nights. Considering it is located on the main road coming into Port Pirie, it was very quiet & easy to access. Good location and nice facilities. Pool & BBQ area was lovely. Room was adequate for my short stay.

Squeaky clean, new park model Restarant was closed but still a delicious breakfast box. Friendly helpful staff. Best accommodations in our week driving around Australia. Comfortable bed, quiet, and nice amenities. Will stay again if ever in this town.

The room hadn't been vacumed, there was rubbish behind the chairs, very tired with lots of paint chips flaking off, dirty bandwidth in bathroom. Advertise cook breakfast and apparently restraint closed 6 years ago. Staff on reception very friendly, but that was were it finished. Beer bottle tops were all around the pool creating issue if there was a fall and pool needed a good clean

We stayed in one of the recently introduced cabin options. The cabin was very new, it was fresh and immaculately clean, it was beautifully presented and most importantly it was very comfortable and very quiet.
