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.

We stayed in the green truck room and it was the cutest cosiest place ever! I would definitely recommend it. It has a really cute loft space overlooking the stunning Mount Remarkable. It was well supplied and had everything we needed for our family get away! A great place to visit if you are into mountain biking, hiking and get out in nature. We will definitely be back again 😊

What a treat on a winter’s night! Ordered the pork with sweet potato mash and broccoli and it was absolutely delicious! Warm friendly atmosphere- great selection of wines. Loved the slab tables - and random local paintings - altogether delightful.

A weird place. On arrival the bar tender got off her phone and and seemed really puzzled that there were people arriving for their book accommodation (we were a party of 4 and two rooms). can't explain the reception other than just plan weird. Accommodation was good, rooms good, bed good, bathroom good. The restaurant was good as well, but again the whole set up was just plain weird. Bar tender and restaurant manager just seemed to be in another world. Maybe it was us who were in another world? ...the weirdness aside, still recommend.

Staying in the ‘trucks’ was good fun. Four of us booked them both. We hadn’t realised they’d been there for many years (but when you get inside you can tell their age from the fit out) and a recent Advertiser travel article prompted us to book. We wanted to walk up Mt Remarkable and had assumed we’d just stay in a normal pub room. That’s probably what we’d do next time in Melrose as I think the trucks are a fun gimmick but the novelty wouldn’t last for two visits. The pros are that the beds are v comfy, it’s fun sitting out on the little balcony (green truck) looking at the view with a drink, and the start of the summit walk is close. The online booking process was simple. Unfortunately the heating in the red truck is strange as it is right over the bed and it struggles to heat up the other end of the room, but you also don’t really want a blasting heater blowing on you all night when you are trying to sleep. The green truck is much better if you want to sit and relax a bit as it has a little lounge area with sofa bed. In the red truck to relax you really just have to lay down on the bed! Something a bit different and fun to try and glad we did so. If only dinner in the pub was fun too it would have been a better stay - the dining experience was not good at all!

Pretty average fare....steak was disappointing....don’t expect anything special here, nice pub building and ok wine list but let down with unloved outside dining area and over cooked porterhouse. Normally I wouldn’t go for Porterhose but no other cut on the menu.little atmosphere.

Spacious room with comfortable bed and spotless bathroom with toiletries. There was a common area with complimentary T+C, biscuits, toast and cereal which was a nice touch and generous. I also enjoyed my meal in the pub downstairs. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

We stayed one night in the Green Truck on our way to the Flinders Ranges. The truck was well set up and the air conditioner worked to cool the room down as it was a bit warm when we arrived. The shower was good much to our surprise. We ate in the North Star Inn Restaurant and the meal was very good. Breakfast was a bit tricky as we are early risers and the 2 cafes in town don't open early. Great location to explore the area and do some wine tasting at a nearby winery.

My lovely 1st floor double room with ensuite was a delight particularly as there was also a verandah that looked down the main street. The room was spacious and it was a short walk to a shared kitchen with tea/coffee making facilities.

We stayed in the green truck and the kids loved it. It was clean and comfortable but we got eaten alive by mosquitos that night. Also the booking stated you could check in at 1, but we couldn’t get access until 4. No explanation or apology, so very disappointed with the owners. I remember this place being of such high standards 10 years ago but I think it’s gone down hill.
