Stayed one night in a twin motel room and it was great. Very clean, comfortable beds and a great shower. Parking was excellent and the aircon was the best. We had the best sleep. We certainly got our money's worth. The staff were very friendly and check in was a breeze. Had a meal at the restaurant and was basic... More

Located in an ideal place for an overnight stay. Though there is not much to do around, it is an oasis of rest on the long stretch of road. A clean friendly place offers excellent breakfast and other meals. Happen to run into Tom Mayne, who told me it is a family-run place and provided very helpful travel advice.

Camped twice on unpowered sites and felt we hardly got a thing for our money. The bbq was absolutely disgusting hadn't being cleaned in living memory. The ladies showers weren't too bad but the men's were terrible, showers were dark, dingy and dirty, not a mirror anywhere on the wall. I feel that because they are in a convient spot... More

We camp here for one night. The grass was very green and comfortable to camp on. We had access to clean and very modern amenities. There is also an outside pool. All staff were very welcoming and nice. They have BBQ facilities available.

We have stayed here twice now and have enjoyed our stay both times. The meals from the restaurant are lovely and reasonably priced. The cabin we stayed in this time was well presented, clean and spacious. Our only minor negative regarding the cabin would be the aircon attached to the wall vibrating and cutting in and out all night keeping... More

Best place for a weary traveller to rest their heads clean and comfy accommodation and friendly service, great dinners good prices and the pool was a welcome relief from the humidity, only scary thing was the fuel prices at 1.99 per litre I'd suggest filling up before and after but definately a great place to stopover , loved it

We chose to stay in a cabin when we found out we were cut off from Camooweal due to rising flood waters. Pleasantly surprised :-) Clean room, lovely surrounding gardens, bar, beer garden bistro all beautifuly set up friendly helpful staff. Dinner was ok. Seen the place in a different light after this stop (not just a quick top up... More

I wish we had stayed here instead of three ways. Barkly sis so incredibly clean. Food was hot and fresh. And the cabins looked newer and shaded by lovely trees surounded by lush grass. If you have the choice stay here instead of three ways

The price was our first surprise, not bad. Next was the room very nice, followed by the clean pool. The grounds were well cared for and the staff helpful. The camp kitchen needed a little attention but it was off season. The room was quiet and we all slept very well.

Being in the middle of nowhere no matter where you're coming from chances are you drove a long way to get there and is was really nice to be able to stop somewhere that was clean and comfortable. Pricing is pretty high but given the remoteness of the location not outrageous. Air Conditioning was really good and the beds were... More
