Unpowered sites are the furthest from facilities, approx 150m. Facilities (pool, toilet block (only one), and barbecues) are not close to each other. The pool is awesome in that it is shady, has grass and is surrounded by lots of palms towering over picnic tables, but isn't all that big. The biggest downfall of the pool is the loud, constant,...

Thanks for your review! Great to hear you took some time to explore the site during your visit! We are very proud of our maintenance of the pool area and Sunset Viewing Platform and we truly love our Roos! You are spot on, the noise you would be able to hear from the pool were our diesel generators which power...

This review was a little challenging to write as the roadhouse had very positive aspects and some negative ones. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly and accommodating. In fact, it was above and beyond. My husband travels with a CPAP device and requires an outlet by the bed...which was absent. The staff searched for an extension cord...

Thanks for taking the time to provide this well-considered feedback! We are really pleased you received an excellent standard of service and had a nice meal in our restaurant! We are also glad to hear that the air-conditioner eventually cooled down your room as it does get very hot here in the outback! With relation to your feedback on the...

We arrived late at night. We had a queen bed. The room was ok for a night. The room could use some updating and renovations. The floor cracked as you walked around the room. The bathroom is in need of some renovations. Unfortunately, there are no other hotel options in the area.

After a late start to our travel from Darwin to Adelaide over 3 days and catching a flu on day 2 this place took all ours woes away! The rooms were brilliant and well presented, for a reasonable price of $149 for my partner and I . The pool was amazing, nice and cold to help revive our energy from...

It's was a perfect time ! You can enjoy Kangourous et Emeu who is really good beacause I didn't saw any on the road. The swimming pool was cool and after a long very very hot day it's delightful ! The front desk was polite and helpful ! Thank you very much for this little oasis !

We decided to stop here for the night, the room was a queen size and was huge. We had a queen bed & single bed, spacious bathroom with shower. The TV reception was terrible, but after travelling for 14 hours did not worry about that so much. We decided to have a meal in the pub area and was served...

We stayed there on our way through down south. The room had tv but only 3 channels, one that worked . We inquired about vast and my husband was told this is what you get in outback nt.

This stop was one we still talk about - it is located on the Stuart highway right on the corner on the hwy leading to Ayers Rock. It was the perfect stop over for us, as we didn't want to drive Kings Canyon to Coober Pedy in one day. So we left Kings Canyon after lunch and drove back to...

I stayed there in january/2017. Great price, pool, emu farm, amazing food in the restaurant for affordable prices. Nice rooms with porch. Excellent place to stay on the way to Ayer´s Rock. The only thing is the wi-fi just in the reception and feel tv channels avaiable. The roadhouse is on the crossing between Lasseter Road and Stuart Highway.

We stopped her for fuel on our drive from Kings Canyon to Alice Springs. It was great to get out of the car and walk around, the fuel was cheaper than it had been out at Kings Canyon and Uluru. It was exciting also to get phone reception again after several days without. The highlight of our stop was being...
