What a great place to escape the heat for a few hours before venturing back out lol! We drive through to Arkaroola each year and always stay here a few nights before going back to tenting :) It's a great place to escape the heat and have a good shower and meal. There is a bar and great food and... More

In blazing hot temperatures & off season we had a great, tasty lunch in lovely company with Lyndsay (now Aussie from UK) on New Years Day. Met a lovely young man from Port Augusta who was a friend of friends. Only in Australia...

Very ordinary food as was staffs attitude, shower slippery and dangerous. 2 glass cups in room when there were 5 people booked in. There should have bee 5 cups and enough tea and coffee etc. There wasn't but should have been for $225 a night. We will stay in Hawker or Wilpena Pound next time.

We had a coffee and biscuit here while visiting this quaint town. The bickie was yummy and surprisingly the coffee was the best we've had during our stay in South Australia. The young girl serving was very friendly and informative about the region. It looked like a really nice place.

Blinman is such a sweet and historic little town and I love visiting. We stopped for lunch which was a great decision and even had our photos taken together by Leon Bignell, SA Minister for Tourism. We returned a week later for the Great Aussie Camp Oven Cook Off which was something a bit different. Worth a visit for sure.... More

Over 20 of us dropped by en route to Wilpena and enjoyed a few refreshers at the classic front bar. Not much to add other than a welcoming smile and great service. Home comforts after a road trip with Quandong pie and fresh coffee next door.

A large group of us went for the Friday night pizzas which were actually really good. Huge layers of toppings which were bit excessive but can't argue about too much instead of too little! 5 pizzas for $99.00... The pub was very busy as had a camp oven cook off happening in the town, so we sat outside. Had to... More

We stayed there on our way home to Alice Springs via the Flinders Ranges and Oodnadatta Track. The hotel's service and food were great - we were recommended the Friday pizza nights, but missed out by one day. We did get to see the Outback Postie Bike ride come in at dusk for a drink - this was a real... More
