This review is for the Red Earth Restaurant, not the hotel accommodation. I recently had a birthday dinner here, choosing the venue as a result of a review on Urbanspoon. The food and service were very high quality. Really the restaurant could be in any major centre. It's quite a surprise that it is located here in Mount Isa!

This review is for the Isa Hotel, not the more expensive Red Earth Hotel. I stayed here a couple of years ago and had a central facing room which seemed to overlook a central service core. This time however I had an outside facing corner room with a lot of windows which was a much better aspect. I had a... More

Having travelled to Mount Isa for the past 9 years I recently booked to stay at the RedEarth Motel after a recommendation by friends following renovations. I booked months in advance and actually paid a month in advance however when we checked in, my wife and I were not put in the RedEarth motel but an adjoining hotel called Isa... More

For a comfortable room and friendly service I recommend this hotel complex in the centre of Mount Isa. Boutique rooms are updated from an old hotel with spacious verandahs and period decor. I stayed for a conference visit in a less expensive room in the adjacent Isa Hotel that shares a central management and reception desk. The two hotel complex... More

This is the first hotel I have ever seen that does not have a window. At the end of the room there are curtains where you would expect to find a window, but behind the curtains there is nothing but solid wall. The room itself is ordinary, especially for the price (although mining towns are often expensive like this). I... More

We weren't expecting much in Mount Isa when we turned up late one afternoon after 10 days camping in the bush, but the RedEarth Hotel was a real find. Very comfortable (and spotlessly clean) room with a super bed and one of the quietest nights ever! We ate in the restaurant which, although feeling like something of a throw-back to... More

Booked this room about 2 months in advance, and having worked in the hotel industry before, I asked the receptionist specifically how much it would cost to stay for 2 nights - she gave me a price of $220. I thought this was a bit cheap, so I double checked with her if it was a PER NIGHT rate or... More

Stayed for three nights on business in March. Great check-in, friendly staff, clean and well appointed room with aircon that worked without too much noise. All in all a great stay. The lobby bar is busy and plenty of chatter, especially if there is footy on the TV. The lobby restaurant served great food, but, as a North American in... More

Whilst on business, I have used this hotel for my stay in Mt Isa many times. It is very comfortable and has everything I need. Beware of the lifts...they are slow...so take the stairs if you can. I love the onsite restaurant...its really nice, with fantastic food. Check in was quick...I enjoyed the bar at night too....Ideal and close to... More

There is a lift and stairs up to the rooms level.The rooms are very comfortable and clean, with fridge, iron etc. The cleaning staff are lovely. I didnt eat at the restaurant, but the menu looked great. The only complaint... More
