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

Tennant creek has way more to offer that it shows, well worth a days sight seeing and some great restaurants but unfortunately accommodation in town is second rate. Bathroom was in very poor condition and tiles falling off the wall in the shower. Linen was thin and old, grayish in colour not white. Very expensive and noisy. This is a... More

Room is a hexagon shape, great air con and fan, with a large comfortable double and single beds. Room is basic but has a large bar fridge, a small tv and the added bonus of foxtel... The room and...

On Sunday 1st Feb 2015 we arrived at another pre-booked accommodation (to remain un-named) and were horrified at the reality of it... We went along to the BlueStone Motor Inn to escape for a while and get a meal... We were greeted by the lovely Aleshia in the Restaurant, seated and waited on very capably with nothing but well informed... More

Only place with a restaurant on site thus eliminating the need to walk around town after dark. Food was good too! Room was old and the bathroom didn't look overly clean but it had a bed and working aircon and a tv to watch the cricket on! Lots of bugs (but welcome to the NT!) and if you're not a... More

Stayed here on our 1st night in the NT, a very welcome stay after a long days ride. I stayed in one of the octagonal cabins with ensuite, very comfortable, clean, well maintained and airy. All in all I was very happy with the stay & would recommend it to anyone.

The most secure location in Tennant Creek. Everything you need is here, but requires some repair and attention to the details. Bathrooms are well below standard and require upgrade, to tiles especially. Service by staff in the restaurant and house keeping was excellent. Carpets require replacement with water damage on entry. Pool area and grounds are well maintained.

My mom and I stopped in Tennant Creek after a day driving through the outback. The best thing about Bluestone Motor Inn was the restaurant located on site. The food was great after a day of traveling. The room was clean and the staff were friendly. However, the water had a little smell to it. We shut the door to... More
