Well although Burra itself is a great little town the Burra motor inn left much to the imagination. Firstly the TV is the smallest tv I have ever seen. Trying to watch in from the bed you need binoculars. The room itself was clean and the bed comfy, but I found the lack of anyone at reception very annoying. When we arrived we tried to work out where to get the key (we had pre-booked) . No one at reception no one answering the phone number on the reception door. It turned out the our rooms were unlocked and keys inside, which I found strange. The reason given that reception was closed was that old chestnut COVID. I think its just lazy and cutting cost! Another example of laziness was the pool and restaurant being closed. Once again COVID is the culprit, but I believe it was another cost cutting exercise. We had stopped at two other motels in our travels and they didn't have a problem with their pools and restaurants being opened. Very disappointed.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and our central location within our historical town. We note from your other reviews that you visited one of our favourite places, Alligator Gorge near Wilmington. How stunning! If you ever get the opportunity to visit our region again, it would be worthwhile checking out a few of our local natural wonders such as Tourilie Gorge in the Caroona Creek Conservation Park, Redbanks Conservation Park, and the Dare's Hill Circuit, all of which feature spectacular landscapes and natural wonders. You would be most welcome to stay at the Burra Motor Inn again.

Clean, neat and tidy facility with everything you need in a great location. Very comfortable stay. Covid check in and check out was a breeze, keep it going guys. Will be good to return when the restaurant and pool are open.

The Burra Motor Inn is a well located establishment - quiet, and with an attractive outlook over the adjacent Burra Creek, yet a short stroll from the center of town. Notwithstanding COVID, the proprietors offer excellent hospitality. My room was clean and spacious. They have crisp white bedlinens, and fluffy towels. Thoughtful touches include fresh milk in the fridge, wine glasses and a good quality corkscrew - if you need it, and biscuits to accompany your tea or coffee. Presently, their restaurant is closed, but there are several pleasant dining options in the vicinity. This establishment is a good example of good quality professional country hospitality.

Stayed for two nights and would stay again. Room was very quiet and clean. Warmed up quickly/stayed warm. The electric blanket was a great addition. Loved the visiting ducks at breakfast time and the river was a nice backdrop. Would be lovely in warmer/drier weather to sit outside. Covid precautious (including contactless check in) good to see. Location was ideal for us.
