We spent a night here en route to the Flinders Ranges.
The upstairs area where the rooms are really needs an update. There are random cupboards etc all over the place. Our room was using the shared bathroom facilities. There was one loo for women and the shower didn't work. The room itself was of a decent size but the furniture seems to be from 60s-80s junk shops (and not in a funky/retro way). The bed sagged in the middle - but not too horribly - but, on the plus side, the linen seemed clean. The bedside lamp had no globe. But hey, the room was very cheap!
A big compliment we can pay to the pub is that, because we left Adelaide after work that day, we knew we wouldn't arrive til about 9pm when, we assumed, everything in the small town of Burra would be closed.
We called ahead to the pub and asked what would be open (nothing) but came up with the plan to order ahead from the pub menu and have it kept warm in preparation for our arrival. The owner-manager kindly sent me photos of their menu and I texted our order through.
So it was pretty nice to arrive on schedule and have our meals waiting. They hadn't gone cold or mushy, they were delicious and very generous serving sizes. Gold star for customer service!More
