On arrival we could not find the motel's entrance because it is in fact located directly behind a pub, and you must check-in at the bar! As it was quite rowdy on the footpath outside of the hotel, we were reluctant to leave our vehicle and walk through this to check-in. I telephoned the motel and was met at the... More

This is Tennant Creek, not Paris. The Goldfields provides a clean and perfectly adequate option for an overnight stop on the sprint up or down the highway. Parking is off street but not secure. Secure parking is available... But ask. Meals are good pub style and staff service is attentive. Can be a bit rowdy in the street at night... More

I was going to write a scathing review. But I've calmed down. I booked online even after reading the reviews for this place. I felt a bit uncomfortable having to walk up to the bar in the pub to get the key. The outside of the building looks run down as does much of this town. Even the other motels... More

I love Goldfields hotel and will stay again! Although the hotel is undergoing rennovations and looks a bit like a building site at the moment, the rooms inside are clean and pleasant. Again, this is not a 5 star hotel but definately value for money in Tennant Creek for a quick stop over journey. The service is excellent. I forgot... More

Just a terrible experience, in every way. Ordered a red with dinner and 4 out of the 4 glasses they were poured into we're filthy, and was charged $4300 for my meal instead of $43.00 lucky I picked it up. Room placement was between a load of workers who had been drinking all night . Poor management. For the price... More

We stayed at Tenant Creek on two occasions over a fortnight. Even in the middle of the afternoon, the place looks gloomy. Heavy shutters on shop-fronts gives the impression that everything is closed. Entrance to the Goldfields Motel adjoins a bottle-shop which looks like a prison cell with heavy fortifications and a police officer on constant guard by the window.... More

When we arrived I looked at my partner as if to say "where the hell have you booked us?" Our experience was much like others, no it was not a 5 star hotel but it was nice enough for a stop over on our journey through. The front pub area you check in at is very rough, there is even... More

Missing out on accommodation at Three Ways, I made a call to the "Goldfields" and managed to get the last room. What a pleasant surprise when I walked through the door of our renovated room. Neat, clean and tidy. The beds were comfortable and there were places within walking distance to get some dinner. Yes it got a bit noisy... More

I am very surprised to read of comments on this hotel. Back in 1949-1953 period it was a relatively new hotel the older one was the Tennant Hotel across the road to the east. I fell quite depressed to read that the hotel has been allowed to become so run down over the years. My wife and I were looking... More

Is Tennant Creek the worst town in the Western world? Maybe -- it's a pretty depressing place. Not much is going on (we made the mistake of arriving mid-afternoon to see the Battery Hill Mine -- but it turned out that their underground tour is closed indefinitely), and the streets are lined by aboriginals drinking and loitering. You don't exactly... More
