This is the best motel we have stayed in on extensive trips within Australia over the last decade. It is 'over the bridge' from the main town centre. at the junction of the Eyre and Stuart Highways - an iconic location. Further pluses are the lay out of the complex and the presence of a 18 hole golf course. We... More

Nice hotel on the outskirts of town, the original building dates from the 1800s and someone did a really good job restoring it. The rooms themselves are clean and comfortable and staff were always very helpful and attentive. The pool is very clean and the shadesail over the top is a great idea for hot days. We spent a few...

Do not expect city luxury at this in on the edge of the outback. However quirky, this hotel offers several really compelling reasons to stay. First, the attached restaurant serves some of the best Indian food I have ever eaten. This alone is worth staying for at the hotel. Second, rooms are very spacious and clean.-Money is great. Third, the... More

Motel room was pretty good, nice beds, clean modern bathroom, TV, fridge, coffee, etc. Has free parking and pool. Would give this motel a higher rating if it weren't for the ants. The entire motel is covered with tiny ants that give off quite a bite! Walking from the car to the room covered my leg in about 15 -... More

The great thing about staying here is that you can feel tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Port Augusta town; as it can feel a little unsafe at night. However that's not the best part of staying here, terrific Indian food in the historic building/dining room, lovely views from certain rooms and if you choose a deluxe suite,... More

After a long, hot rough drive down the Oondatata track we went out of our way to go to the Standpipe for the night. Having been there before we knew the facilities are excellent. On arrival, looking dishevelled and tired, we were given a friendly welcome and immediately directed to our room with the promise that our dinner booking would... More

The room was spacious and looked brand new and modern. And we loved the big beautiful dark green bath towels. We had originally booked a standard room but when we arrived our reservation could not be found. We were offered a standard room but decided to upgrade to a superior room ($135) and it was well worth it. The food... More

Stayed again at the Standpipe on my quarterly travels, comfy, clean, good size executive room, ate in the restaurant which has a great variety of food on offer, try the Indian dishes they are certainly the best in town! Staff always welcoming here, and I would recommend to any traveller.
