Great location at the end of the Main Street. Reception and room staff very friendly, Older style , decent sized motel rooms clean with fan and air-conditioning. Good storage area. Bathrooms clean with good water pressure. Full hotel & bottle shop facilities. Very good choice for Lightning Ridge.

In an iconic town the Lightning Ridge Outback Resort & Caravan Park is a good fit. You can get a good meal there which is pretty handy. The air conditioning works well which is pretty important out here. You can drink the tap water too.

The curtains and bedspreads needed a good wash you could feel the dirt in them. The dust was everywhere you could not see the white cables for dust and...

I had a great little room. It had sufficent aircon (on a 40+ day), a bar fridge that was icy cold, a bathroom that was a decent size, a shower that was wonderful and a bed that was so comfy. The TV was wonderful and the pool, although was small, I had to myself and it was gorgeous. There is...
