We stopped for the night as it was too far to Pimba or Port Augusta. We arrived around 7pm. The gent in the front desk was very nice. We were given a room towards the back corner of the block. Bore water tends to stink the room - which I understood. The carpet was lifting and old. The beds were... More

I looked at the reviews and wasnt sure what to expect. Travelling from Adelaide to Darwin, Glendambo was marked in as our first stop. I thought well its only an overnight stay so wasn't overly concerned after reading other reviews. We arrive at 7pm and was quite surprised to see Glendambo it was not what I expected. The main building... More

Although the Glendambo Hotel is listed as being in Coober Pedy, it is actually located over 250km north of there towards the Northern Territory border. Yes, there are many bad reviews here, and being in the middle of South Australia where staff are virtually impossible to find, doesn't help. I know the feeling! The hamburgers on the other hand are... More

Friendly staff very polite and helpful. Good amenities clean and even though some are older well looked after. Caravan park plenty of space. Good level sites. Definitely stay here again and recommend to all my travelling friend.

Do not stop here unless you have no other choice. The rooms are dirty and smelly. The showers are fitlthy with broken tiles with stained walls and floors. Service is vertically non existent and when someone finally does attend to your questions you are subjected to abuse and ridicule. I have travelled throughout Australia and I can honestly say that...

I suggest that you free camp if you don't need power because power is the only thing this place offers for $ 27.00 a night. The water is not suitable for consumption and the amenities are terrible. I understand that bore water discolours the floor of the amenities, but there is no excuse for the dirty,unkept showers and toilets with... More

I have stayed in many outback accommodation houses - even a tin shed - but this one takes the cake. There is no excuse for an unclean bathroom, ripped carpets, toilet damaged and an unfriendly host. The airconditioner worked which was a plus and there was tea/coffee facilities, but honestly, only use this place if you really need to rest... More

I was a little apprehensive after reading the reviews but when we arrived at 7.30pm we were greeted by friendly staff. The room was clean with plenty of room for our baby's walker so he could stretch his legs too. (no tv but who needs one?) The beds were comfy and clean with electric blankets if you wished. Heated Air... More

After reading the reviews on here I was preparing for the worst. Well it wasn't bad at all. The staff were very friendly & welcoming, rooms were neat & clean & food was awesome. The pub is a beautiful old style building and very nice to eat & relax in. Yes the rooms are basic, they have a bed, bathroom,... More
