Travelling from Adelaide to Alice Springs we came across this unusual hotel motel at Glendambo. It was a typical bush setting. The accommodation was good , but it needed a bit of maintenance. The price was fair and not over priced. The cold beer and food was excellent.

Everything we were wanting after a long hot day on the road, there's even a pool! Was a bit worried about the meals but the flathead we ordered was lovely ( there's a picture ), the people are down to earth and this is Australia, hard water? Harden up princess, water is wet full stop. No tv in the room... More

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

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
