Complimentarily toiletry products are also available. All the standards (tea / coffee etc) and the room is clean and well presented. A/C cools and kept cool... More

This is a modern, reasonable well appointed motel with free Wi-Fi, but it is a little noisy. It was easy to find but it is hard to access from the west as a traffic island requires you to travel past and then do a U-turn. Check-in was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant was closed for the weekend. The room... More

Hi Equivoco Thank you for your review so glade you enjoyed your stay with us. Unfortunately noise is something you can't escape from in a mining town,and the blast that shakes the whole town at 8pm each night is something you can set your watch by.( and is all part of the Isa experience) We do hope you enjoyed your...

Stayed on Sunday night so very quiet. Received a warm welcome and check-in was efficient. Got advice on where to eat (as the restaurant was closed) and advice was helpful. Room comfortable and clean with parking right in front. Not a lot to do and limited outdoor area outside room but room itself was nice.

We have been here for two nights, we are lucky that as it is a weekend, most of the corporates go home. The room is clean, modern, well fitted out. Lovely guest laundry, friendly staff, breakfast options. We have been on the road for nearly three weeks in Queensland and this is certainly the best motel, we have stayed in.... More

Lovely staff, clean rooms, nice meals area. I have stayed here a few times and although a bit noisy because it is on the main road, I believe this to be the best in Mt Isa. I have tried many others but keep coming back here. It is a little way out of the CBD however close enough not to... More

I spent two nights here on the second floor and although the place is clean, it is extremely noisy due to it being right on the highway (even with the aircon on). The place rattles as the trucks drive by.....Not advisable if you want a good night sleep. The restaurant attached didn't look much, so can't comment on food as... More

HI Nelia Thank you for your review. Mount Isa is a mining community and the trucks that carry the ore are the life blood of the town.

Business trip to the Isa - first stay at Spinifex and would do it again in a heartbeat. Look, to be honest, Mt Isa is a mining town whichever way you look at it - I was there on business and the Spinifex was very hospitable, clean, quiet, bar fridge, reasonable restaurant - more than I expected.
