Quirky Green Truck

Review of North Star Inn
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 25 Nov 2020
We stayed one night in the Green Truck on our way to the Flinders Ranges. The truck was well set up and the air conditioner worked to cool the room down as it was a bit warm when we arrived. The shower was good much to our surprise. We ate in the North Star Inn Restaurant and the meal was very good. Breakfast was a bit tricky as we are early risers and the 2 cafes in town don't open early. Great location to explore the area and do some wine tasting at a nearby winery.

      My lovely 1st floor double room with ensuite was a delight particularly as there was also a verandah that looked down the main street. The room was spacious and it was a short walk to a shared kitchen with tea/coffee making facilities.

      We stayed in the green truck and the kids loved it. It was clean and comfortable but we got eaten alive by mosquitos that night. Also the booking stated you could check in at 1, but we couldn’t get access until 4. No explanation or apology, so very disappointed with the owners. I remember this place being of such high standards 10 years ago but I think it’s gone down hill.

      Dropped in with 9yo and Gran. Friendly staff, lovely food and some beautiful quilts on sale. Beautiful and imaginative hand made furniture and arts to be seen here. Grand old building. Lots of families dining at lunchtime. At the base of Mt Remarkable.

      This hotel offer great potential if only a new coat of paint and improved pillow options were available. The rooms was large and the bathroom was clean and spacious. The restaurant provided a great rib eye steak. Bookings essential during the COVID restrictions.

      Stayed overnight in the Green truck out back. Was a great wee house and very comfortable. Pub food was good with the calamari surprisingly the best. Publican was lovely and very helpful. Will stay here again on future expeditions.
