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 welcoming place with good food at the restaurant. However, the service was very slow. Only 3 staff who were trying to cook, serve, take money for fuel, tend the bar and make coffee! Other staff/owners were eating there and would occasionally get up to help.

I know it’s roadside coffee and I shouldn’t get my hopes up but seriously this was awful.
My wife and I handed over $15 for two cups of takeaway coffee. As we were driving out we sampled it and it was bitter and tasted burnt.
Mine tasted no better than a very average instant cup and her laté was scorched and undrinkable.
Very disappointing as well as expensive.

This is a good little outback stop offering a casial restuarant/cafe, swimming pool, caravan park, rooms, toilets, gift shop and perfect for refueling. It has a nice homely feel to it and the staff are friendly. There's plenty of parking space but I can imagine it could get crazy busy at peak holiday times.

After offering me a donga (workers room) for $60, Holly told me they were all booked out and the only room left was $120. However NOBODY turned up and used any of the 16 dongas that night. Then after I left, they tried to make an unauthorised charge on my credit card because they said they found dog hair in the room. My dog stayed in my car, looking after my Ute load of valuables and never went in the room. These people are crooks

We were running ahead of time and decided to stop at Cadney for lunch there was 9 of us, on walking in we were greeted with " our toilets are not public toilets if your not buying anything you can't use them" no hello how are ya goin? Just straight up rude.
The toilets were covered in vomit according to the sign on the door hadn't been cleaned for 2 days anyway.
Due to the rudeness of the older lady we decided to just grab a drink and head Marla for lunch where we were welcomed like you should be.
Don't work in hospitality if you can't be friendly.
Do not recommend head to Marla instead.

We paid for a powered site for the night as we are travelling towing our caravan. Site was as expected with power and water supplied. Amenities are clean with really good shower pressure. The meal we ordered was exceptional - rump steak, salad and chips could be described as typical pub food, but it was so much more than that. We both loved our steaks - tender, cooked to perfection with a fresh salad and a small serve of well cooked chips.

Stopped overnight at the end of day one of a drive, towing, to Darwin.
Booked into a motel room, refueled and ate ta the restaurant.
The motel room was clean, comfortable and provided an excellent nights sleep.
The menu in the restaurant was good and the food very good. In fact as good as any pub I have eaten at.
The restaurant was well patronised with campers, truckies and motel guests.
All the staff were friendly and efficient.
We also stopped in and refueled on the return journey.
Certainly a place I would stay at again.

This place somehow looks empty but what we have found out is that it is a must to visit. The staff is very friendly, always in good spirits, food is delicious. Breakfast and coffee are always really good. Place is very clean, lovely atmosphere. There is a swimming pool and camping looks great. I will definitely be coming back more often.

Great spot to overnight between Yulara and Coober Pedy. We stayed in the unpowered campsite area which is HUGE! Clean and tidy ammenities and lovely staff. And the dinner in the roadhouse was beautiful. It‘s close to the road, so you hear the road trains going through overnight, but I quite liked that.
