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

NO secure car parking as advertised. A car with smashed windows was parked outside our unit. People screaming and yelling all night, drunk people wandering home from the pub - fighting outside our unit. Door had been smashed and roughly repaired. The bedding was filthy - we slept in our sleeping bags - just appalling.

we were booked in here for 1 night but when we arrived and lookedvat the building, the parking and the public bar attached we kept driving. It is a run down old building behind the local hotel / drinking hole and drive thru bottle shop. Parking was not secure and just a dirt court yard. Please we did not stay... More

The pub part of this establishment is daggy, but cannot be avoided because it is necessary to check-in at the bar where I was attended to cursorily by an uninterested bar attendant. The recently refurbished room, located in a complex at the back of the pub, was acceptable. But the room, while clean, was remarkably bland and soulless. The place... More
