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

for $94 for a "budget room" you get a disgusting filthy shabby carpet, atrocious filthy leaking shower and toilet, no TV and over 20 years of travelling through I have yet to be greeted by a friendly staff member. Yet just up the road (Cadney Park, Coober Pedy) or down the road (Pimba, Woomera, Port Augusta) for a similar price... More

There is little to choose from so Do Not expect much! Very expensive ($120 per night) for what you get!!!! The room smelt of smoke, curtains old and dusty, broken window pane, no TV and walls are thin, and noise easily heard from adjoining rooms. The one positive would be the restaurant & bar, the food is delicious and generous... More

Upon arrival and walking up to the counter I was greeted by the reception girl with a glum face and attitude. Not what I'd experienced so far on this solo bike road trip. Rooms were pretty clean and good size. No TV in rooms. Main restaurant was huge. Service from those ladies nice. Whilst backpackers work well they know little... More

After a long day, Glendambo was well positioned to catch us as we fell off the road, though the graceless service unfortunately made us feel a bit taken for granted. However the room was okay, and cheap, and the water was hot. The fridge froze the drinking water, which was fine as we brought our own, and the bathroom had... More

For $120 I expect to be able to shower children in a clean bathroom. Not one with mould gunk clogging up the plug hole. The whole room was disgusting for the money. Worth no more than $50/night. Bedbugs attacking us all night, holes in wall, shower head falls off because it is too badly rusted. Don't waste your money. People... More

Needed to stop overnight on the way to Uluru. Rooms are very basic, old, tired. They didn't really feel clean, but were ok. The shower, even taking into account the bore water stains, was bad. Tiles broken, chipped, shower head had gaffer tape to hold it in place. Windows can't be opened. On the plus side, it was pretty quiet,... More

Everything written by the other reviewers is true, good and bad. The rooms are pretty basic but you only sleep there. The water is bore water and yes the showers are very erratic due to pressure changes, you are warned when you arrive and with signs in your room, not to drink the tap water, obtain your drinking water from...

In my opinion there can be two reasons for charging 23 dollars per night for an unpowered tent site for a single person. Either it can be justified by offering excellent facilities or another explanantion can be that there is no competion from other camp sites. In this case it is clearly because of lack of competion. The showers and... More
