Service was great. Friendly greeting and all seemed fine. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean, however the carpets needed a good clean. The shower recess needed a really good scrub and the kitchen area also was a tad grotty. The location is good, an easy stroll to the main street. The bedside table was sticky and when... More

This is the second time we have stayed at this motel and we are welcomed back like family. The staff are lovely and very helpful will definitely be going back again. As my wife's family comes from The Hill were in a central location for them all.

We stayed in the Queen Heritage room,which whilst it was small, was quiet comfortable. The only downside to our stay was the few maintenance/housekeeping issues noticed (screw missing in bathroom door handle, made the handle... More

Very nicely refurbished rooms in a historical building. We stayed in a family room, i.e. a double and two single beds in one room. This is a four star level hotel. Friendly service. A 10 minutes walk to the centre. We booked via phone - communication was a bit difficult.

Thank you very much for your review, great to hear that you had a good time while staying at the Lodge.... In regards to communication we are at times challenged by bad telephone lines out here in the Outback and therefor it can be a challenge to hear what guest are trying to say... Apologies for this More

This was a fantastic spot for our two night stay. We were in a large family room which had plenty of space including a table and chairs, microwave, cutlery, crockery. Big bonus points for providing a coffee plunger and a packet of real coffee. Fabulous! Clean (though not immaculate, if you're a clean freak) and very comfortable and quiet. Friendly... More

Large spacious family room for a family of 4. Dining table and chairs, microwave, kettle, toaster and bar fridge. We were in the main part of the house which has really high ceilings and chandeliers. Kids felt it was really fancy. Borrowed a couple of kids books from their library which were from the early 60s which kept our 9... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the cottage with access to the motel pool. On arrival, I noticed that the pool was not clean and asked if it could be clean so we could use it. I explained that I only booked the property because it had access to a pool so I expected it to be fit for use!!... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review, I am sad to read that you had a disappointing experience. I do have to point out that we had just experienced a major storm in Broken Hill just before you arrived and to top that our regular maintenance man was off with an ear infection. I know this should... More

I stayed twice in August and each time my room which was located in the original building was clean and comfortable. I was met at the airport on arrival with a complimentary transfer and the same when I left to fly home. The reception staff were very helpful pointing out places of interest and nearby restaurants.

This was our 2nd stay here and we weren't disappointed. The check in staff was extremely friendly. The room was clean and comfortable. The motel is in a very quiet part of Broken Hill. The motel is easy walking distance to many restaurants.
