There's a range of accommodation for travellers wishing to visit the caves, and while the Hotel Motel may optomistically be listed as 4 Star it is better than my previous experience in town. Good friendly service and well priced meals and clean basic motel rooms
Enjoyed a delicious hearty crumbed steak and burger here. Friendly and relaxed. A nice atmosphere. A nice outdoor eating area to relax after a day visiting the caves and the historical sites around town.
Day trip to the caves and had lunch at this venue. I am commenting on the meal. Was excellent and excellent value, just what we were looking for on the day trip to the town. Orders were a mixed grill, crumbed steak and a chicken burger. No complaints from any of us. If you take a day trip don't miss this place for lunch.
I stayed here almost exactly 5 years ago and wrote a fairly critical review at the time. I decided to try it again this year and stayed there on two nights, one week apart, when travelling into and returning from a remote camp. It was certainly better than last time, but still, it's an outback pub with a fairly dilapidated old motel attached, and nothing more. The room is very basic but no more or less than any similar remote pub/motel anywhere in rural Queensland. Everything works, mostly, the water pressure is good, the beds are comfortable and the room is well cleaned. And if you just want somewhere to stay for the night, it will be fine. Our air conditioning unit started to make a loud noise during the night which required a trip outside and around to the back of the building to give it a bit of a shake, but otherwise things worked. I'd be happy to stay here again if this was the only option, but will probably look at what else is available next time I pass through. I'd also be cautious about eating there again. One meal we had was fine, the next was pretty bad. I had a rump steak which came out in two pieces. It was very thin and basically too tough to chew. I tried a couple of mouthfuls but finally spat one out and abandoned it.…
I always enjoy this small outback town, with its caves, historical sites and lush swimming hole. This small, quiet, friendly, family-owned and run hotel motel has clean and comfortable rooms and good simple meals served in a shady beer garden. Tammy and Chad are welcoming and helpful, and Rob cooks good breakfasts.
