3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Looks rough from the outside and is behind the pub but it was a Sat. night and we weren't disturbed. The room is small but adequate and clean. It has recently been renovated. The week before we stayed at the bluestone. If you are choosing between the two pick this one. The other one is disgusting.

My husband & I stayed here on our way to Qld 2 days before Christmas. We had arranged a late check-in and were happy with the service. The exterior can be a little off-putting, but the rooms were clean and recently renovated. The air-conditioner worked well and we had a comfortable sleep. We parked directly outside our room and nothing... More

Stayed here a week. Absolutely great staff, helpful, friendly. Room was a good size and very comfortable, bathroom was a good size. Travelled with a 3 year old, the poor room coped well with her being stuck inside for a week. Highly recommend! Great stop over!

I have stayed at the Goldfields Hotel twice now for almost a week at a time & very much enjoyed my stay. The rooms are neat & tidy, bathrooms are fairly new & the beds are comfy. Everything you could need is there & if not, the staff are friendly & helpful enough to assist you with any concerns. House... More

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
