We travelled close to 1,000 kms today (from Eucla) and we really needed a good nights rest/feed. This motel had everything we needed - a comfy king bed, clean room, free unlimited wifi, and laundry. We were too tired to go out so we ate in the restaurant. Wow - the schnitzel and chicken were great! All in all -... More

The room @ HW one was spacious, clean, very inviting; just like being @ home. The toilet and bathroom were clean and smelt fresh. For us the location was acceptable, I did not have time to check out the gardens or pool. Iam looking forward to our next visit.

We arrived in Port Augusta and drove around looking for a decent place to stay with dinner available before we went back to this motel we had passed earlier. It is run by a woman and her son, she was a great hostess and ran in and out of the kitchen to help the son with the meals. Great job.... More

To be honest this is not a true review of this Motel. If we had known the situation before booking ahead we might have stayed elsewhere. Arrived to be told the owner had walked out, utter chaos. Staff had pulled together to keep Motel open, we could have walked away but they were trying with a great sense of humour... More

Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Room is huge and for $95 we have a double bed and two single beds!!! The room however is very outdated and smells like the cigarette from 30 years ago has soaked into the walls. It's a bit out of town with nothing around us, but it's more than comfortable for the night we... More

Having been a regular patron over ten years or more, I was a little concerned to sense some trouble in the breeze. The owners walked out apparently and the Motel appeared under a cloud. I stayed over last weekend on pleasure/business and found the new management although a little under pressure seemingly quite confident in their process. The restaurant was... More

Stayed here overnight last month, reception prompt with booking via email, did not ask for payment on booking. Room is fine, spacious enough. Bed is old and lumpy, linen had a very strong purfume odour, which gave me a headache. It was quite hot when I got there so I used the aircon for few minutes but I had to... More

Thanks for taking the time for your review. Sorry to hear you had a problem with the bed. In future, perhaps you should advise the property manager or owner of a problem so they have a chance to rectify the problem. We don't know there is an issue unless a guest tells us. It seems people prefer to give a... More

Only good thing about this hotel was the wifi! Rooms were old and very outdated. Beds were uncomfortable and felt like they were as old as the rooms. Felt like I was going to get bed bugs sleeping on it! Shower pressure was awful! But the worst was the air-con, nice window box unit about 4 decades old as well... More

Perhaps you should make sure you are posting a review on the correct property! You have not stayed with us before and going by your review you stayed at the small motel located next to us. Incorrect property reviews can be very damaging to businesses. More
