The room was fairly large and comfortable. It had all that I needed for an overnight stay - coffee and tea, TV with Austar, if one can figure it out, and AC and a heater if needed. I slept well and, although the place is a bit aged, it was pleasant and clean. The man on reception was also pleasant... More

The reception was friendly, the deluxe room (with six walls) spacious and complete, including airco, sat. TV, decent bed and an excellent shower. Laundry machines, a swimmingpool, all there. Affordable breakfast, nice dinner. WiFi for free near the reception and restaurant, ask for the code. Otherwise available in the room from commercial party at a stiff price! Not much to... More

On our way to our pre booked two night stay at the Bluestone Motor Inn Tennant Creek we ran into a Tennant Creek local who asked us where we were staying. When we said the Bluestone Motor Inn, he said ''since the new owners have taken over it has become run down." Having stayed here some time before we thought... More

There is not a lot of accommodation choices in Tennant Creek. Sadly, I stayed here. The first bungalow/hexagon room I was given hadn't been cleaned from the previous 'survivors'. The second bungalow/hexagon room I was given had a broken airconditioner which is NOT ON for $165 a night and it stank of 'I don't want to know what'. I then... More

This is the best of a very bad bunch located in Tennant Creek. Tired old rooms, noisy box airconditioners but clean and tidy.The staff are friendly and try their best but as the owners are based in Brisbane I dont think they are too concerned about spending money on their business, given the lack of competition in town. meals in...

Our room wasn't terrible but it was very dated and run down. The room was clean as was the bathroom. It's also affordable. However, the room needed some maintenance. Our bathroom "slide door" was more of a plank of wood which you move into place to cover the doorway. Bathroom was uncomfortably small. Wifi cards will set you back $20!... More

Don't stay here. After travelling for hours we asked at reception for a room and were told it would have to be a deluxe room for $165. The most expensive we had encountered so thought it would be well done up. Bad mistake. Firstly the shower had no rose just a hole in the wall. Reception seemed oblivious of this.... More

My room was very shabby and lacked ongoing maintenance and deep cleaning. The wall A/C was well past its use-by and too noisy to sleep with it running., sounded like a bearing was busted. The bathroom was caked with limescale buildup, cobwebs, dust and the exhaust fan cover looked like it have never been cleaned this century. The room was... More

Two guys from Tassie drove up to Darwin during February. we stayed one night at the Bluestone Motor inn. The pool was very refreshing and clean. We had a meal at the restaurant that night, we had the great pleasure of being served by Karen (not her real name). She made the stay memorable. She was polite, jovial, and overall... More
