Burra is a very small country community and the sleeping over options are limited A few pubs the odd BB and to our knowledge this one Motel As u drive in the first thing is how from the outside the building needs a really good coat of paint and spruce up Check in was contactless which was fine The Motel is as are many many Motels around Australia old and this one does not seem to have had a lot of love recently?? . Our room was certainly big enough and was as clean as u could expect for its age The carpets had really seem much better days and there was a bit of a smell in the room which could have been just old age Would be tough in summer as the room only had an old water cooler installed and believe it or not was on a timer to turn off Sure easy to turn it on again but if u want a cool room in summer to come home to then that is a problem Our suggestion would be arrive very early morning buy the key lock pass at info centre and visit the historic attractions Don’t miss the railway station But if accomodation is not high on your list and u happy just for a bed then this Motel would be just fine . It was old but as clean as possible so not a problem there Who knows maybe the management are about to give the whole place a spruce up and make it the Oasis in Burra ???…
Had a very comfortable night at the Burra spacious room with a view of the brook not a river and bigger than a puddle . On opening the blinds in the morning a lone inquisitive duck responded questionably to my duck impersonations and promptly waddled off. Comfy warm bed on this chilly night and plenty of hot water quickly available for showering next morning
You may never have heard of Burra, a little township in South Australia that has more to like about it that many places. The reason- They care about their heritage. And this little motor inn is a good example. Tucked off a main road it is all you need to spend a night or two and one good reason ...it has a good microwave!. Take the time to look around this historic town.
On our way across Australia, this time we stopped in Burra. We chose the Motor Inn due to it's proximity to the town centre and found it to be clean and comfortable, always important when putting in long days on the road. The room was also quiet, but I think all of Burra is that way. Being only a short walk to town and the hotels made our decision easier as well, partly due to the restaurant being closed when we were there. We both thought we'd be happy to stay here again.
Booking was a breeze as was the check-in. Non-contact check-in & everything communicated in detailed emails. Toaster supplied although there were no plates or knives - just in case we made toast. Dining suggestions - great summary including distance from Motel. If we were staying longer we may have used the detailed Visitor Information regarding sight-seeing. Overall - Very Good.
