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. We are lucky that we are a few minutes out from the CBD and do not get the noise & problems associated with outback mining towns. You are right the rooms at the... More

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. Very friendly and... More

Wow we had a great stay here. We travelled from Brisbane for a big birthday party and were in a large group. We shared a villa and it was fabulous. The rooms were comfortable and very modern. The villa was equipped with everything we needed. Close to everything. We didn't have house keeping but we didn't need it as we... More
