We were almost on the last stretch of the drive from Sydney to Darwin travelling for work. We had prepaid for our room but my hubbie said will we keep driving- we would be in Darwin by bedtime? We flipped a coin and decided to stop for the night and boy am I glad we did - what an experience!
On arrival late afternoon we had a friendly greeting and easy check-in, stopping for a cold drink in this iconic, friendly relaxed pub.
We then headed over to our motel room which was diagonally opposite the pub. The room had air con, fridge, tiny but fine ensuite and I have to say was absolutely spotlessly clean. That really impressed me. The room was basic and if as a couple we were stopping more that one night we now think we would pay for a cabin to have more space but for one night this did us very nicely.
We headed over for a drink before dinner, and had cheesy garlic bread followed by really good steaks - with the first bernaise sauce the whole trip (yum!).
Staff could not do more to help you and were all very friendly.
We took lots of photos and loved the relaxed humour of the place.
I think we feel fortunate to have visited in off peak season as I reckon it's absolutely pumping over winter.
