We stayed in the red truck accommodation which was incredible. Our room and facilities were brilliantly built on the back of a big truck showing the cabin crashing into a tree! It was quirky and gave our camera a good work-out to show our friends. Pub food was good and the town was full of old buildings and had an...

We stayed here on the way up from Adelaide to Arkaba Station. Melrose is a lovely little town at the foot of Mt Remarkable. Great trails for mountain bikers and walkers. The pub itself is mid-1850s and has great character. The rooms upstairs have been recently renovated both in the room and the bathrooms. They are tasteful and comfortable. The...

Whilst we were staying in Melrose we had a very nice evening meal here. We were served quickly, food was very well priced and delicious. Enjoyed the variety of food offered, not just your standard Pub meals. Happily recommend a visit

We stopped for a late lunch after cycling some of the local tracks. Reasonally priced, good quality meals, served by a helpful and friendly staff. Certainly recommend this pub and would stop by again without hesitation. Delicious local pinot gris from Bundaleer winery.

A comfortable, spacious sleeping room and bathroom, and a soft-enough bed; good temp control, though no Wi-Fi anywhere in the hotel. Close to trail heads for walking/hiking in one section of the national park. Plenty of street parking. Very good restaurant for lunch or dinner; breakfasts available elsewhere down the town's main street. Friendly, welcoming staff; but check for when...

Polite staff Reasonably priced Looks like a pub crossed with a shearing shed (wool bags for ceiling, timber slab tables). Aussie-style items on the menu (Kangaroo schnitzel $16 + sauces, quandong pie).. Delish! Great views of Mt. Remarkable.

Unfortunately my stay in Melrose was not pleasant due to the terrible service from this pub. The rooms were average, and semi acceptable for the price. My experience with the pub staff was not good, the women working behind the bar were very unhelpful, didn't seem to know what they were doing and also did not take notice of anyone...

We stayed in the Red Truck, it might be quirky but it's super comfortable. The bed was queen sized, there was a little TV and the shower was hot with good water pressure. Bonus view out over the hills in the morning!

We read some reviews on this accommodation and just had to see for ourselves. The choices of accommodation are great and the green truck is fantastic. Quirky... Yes, First class.... Absolutely. Would highly recommend this as the best accommodation in or near Melrose. Staff were great and the publican was helpful and full of information. The meals were also great...

A one night stopover en route to Arkaroola. Comfortable clean room and the food was great. There is plenty to do around Melrose, mountain walks, cycling and camping seem to be the favourites. Took a stroll through the town and enjoyed a coffee at the newly opened cafe.
