We stayed one night on the way through town. The rooms are a good size and well appointed - better than most we've stayed in this trip. The motel is on the main road so there is some traffic noise if you're a light sleeper. Accommodation in Mount Isa seems to be very expensive compared to elsewhere. In comparison to... More

Hi Peter Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you were pleased with your room when you stayed with us. And yes you are right accommodation is expensive in mining towns mainly due to their location and the high cost of labour. The Spinifex has been rated the number one motel in Mount Isa since its opening and... More

What a lovely surprise to check into the Spinifex Motel in Mount Isa and find such a spacious, clean and well thought out room. The kitchenette is a great idea and allows some of the conveniences of home. I hadn't been to Mount Isa for over 20 years, so it was very pleasant to discover this oasis.

We didn't expect too much in Mount Isa, simply because the place is often booked out with working visitors, but again we read the reviews and were very pleased that we did. This is a modern well maintained motel managed by really nice lady called Lillian. Our room was quiet, spacious, modern and very clean. I am told this place... More

I stay in Mount Isa on business for 2-3 nights every 6 weeks. The Spinifex has everything I need and the rooms are very good as far as Motels go. There is a Bar & Grill in the reception area and the food is quite good at reasonable prices. Room service for dinner and breakfast is available, and breakfast is... More

I stayed at the Spinifex while working for two weeks in Mount Isa. I needed somewhere comfortable. My room was spacious and very comfortable. I ordered room service for dinner most nights. The food selection was very good for a motel of this size. The quality was very good. I was impressed. The bonus for me was being able to... More

Very nice place to stay. Owners lovely, friendly. Made to feel welcome. They have a great local knowledge which is great when you first visit a town. Rooms are spacious clean, modern and very quiet. Facilities to make you own breaky are great if you want an early start. Would recommend this to anyone. Ron and Denise Hunt from Victoria

I travel to Mt. Isa every 4-5 weeks for work and will always stay at the Spinifex Motel because it feels like home. My room is always spotless (and I do mean spotless; your cleaning crew obviously take pride in what they do) and I often see the same faces there so others no doubt think the same of the... More

The staff are very friendly & accommodating. The rooms are clean & very comfortable. The room service is quick & food arrives fresh from the kitchen. The bar is a relaxing place to relax at the end of the day. Definitely where I will stay on future visits to the Isa.

Very large rooms with great simple decor that looks and feels quality. The new owners are very easy to chat with and the room service lady was extremely pleasant. Have to wi fi of iPhone although I have free internet here. Not sure what that issue really is. Hey great location very good clean rooms, a bit noisy as is... More
