Having mobility issues, I was disappointed that there wasn't a lift to use, only two flights of stairs. When we went to settle into our room the first night we turned the main light on and saw what I thought was water on the bedside cabinet, so I grabbed a tissue to wipe it up only to find it was...

We had the Corner room on the big upstairs balcony, the room was lovely with high ceilings and very airy feel about the room, the ensuite was great and new. The weekend we stayed Broken Hill had the Agquip show in town and the hotel was very busy at dinner time, even so our meal was very good and considering... More

This hotel is situated on the edge of the main street. It is a beautiful old building that has been very tastefully modernised whilst keeping its original features. The rooms are high ceilinged, well equipped, the bathrooms very nice. Do not expect a sleek motel style suite - it's clean, top quality, comfortable, and well equipped but it's a character... More

This was the second time I have eaten at the Astra, and impressed both times. After a day's driving our group of 4 were looking for a casual evening meal so ordered in the wine bar. The food was presented well, tasty and inexpensive. The waiter was particularly helpful, not only with food and wine selections but he also attempted... More

We arrived a little after our booking time of 8pm and had to wait for them to make up a table for us, which was fine with me though we were only 15 minutes late... My mum, step dad and partners meals were all lovely, I had the chicken and unfortunately it was so overcooked I could hardly swallow it... More

My family and I were visiting Broken Hill for a business trip, and so booked a room here on the day of our arrival. We expected it to be average, as it's located above a restaurant and wine bar, in an older building by the main street. But we were wrong. The rooms are large and airy with high ceilings... More

I work at Broken Hill for approx four weeks at a time. Three years ago, food at the Astra was amazing, but now, no matter how many attempts, each time, there was something wrong; food too dry, badly cooked, deconstructed sweets, etc., but on Saturday, at lunch, when I asked for aoli, they brought me a small dish with a...

We booked the Astra as a quality hotel, the room was pleasant with access to a great balcony. The service was friendly but hard to find at times. There was also quite a bit of noise from the street, especially hoons on a Saturday night.

I've stayed here a few times, in different rooms, always facing the street. Though there is some street noise at times, I have never found it to be too much. The Rooms are spacious and comfortable, great comfortable beds and very nice bathrooms (including ones with a Spa. Not sure if that's across the board, or if I'm just lucky).... More

Everything about this hotel is great, well almost everything. The traffic noise was quite interruptive and I didn't sleep before 1am when people hooning, music blarring, cars rumbling, would slowly ease off. Who would have thought that Broken Hill would be so active during the week at that time? I wasn't the only one, each of my clients which stayed... More
