Check in staff did not seem overly friendly or helpful with booking changes they had made on arrival. Room servicing was good the first day but appeared non existent other than a bin change the second day.

Stayed in an executive room. Very clean and comfortable. Comfy queen bed. Larger room than normal. Bathroom has been refurbished some time ago and was excellent. Had dinner in the restaurant which was excellent and is recommended. Free parking and free WIFI.

Always a lovely place to stay with great food and great staff. The room is a good size and has foxtel which is nice to relax with. The location is just out of Port Pirie while not being too far away. It is quiet and the bar dining room is a good size. Enjoyable all round.

Extremely poor customer service, did not care that they could not provide the room requested. Extremely uncomfortable sofa bed as a result of not reading request for twin room. Linen not clean, but towels great.

Thank you for your review. I do apologise that the room/booking was incorrect, we did miss your booking comment requesting 2 beds. Our Standard Queen Rooms, as stated when the booking is made, feature a Queen size bed. As all of our Executive Twin share rooms were booked/occupied on that night the only option left was an Executive Spa Room... More

Great staff, very clean and comfortable room and facilities. Bathroom in great condition. Breakfast was very good. Close to Sports Tavern where we had a great dinner. Excellent value for money! Would recommend to anyone

Very friendly and comfortable for business travellers. The food is great as is the service. Rooms are clean and comfortable. I have stayed at the John Pirie on and off for about 20 years and it is one of my favourite stops.

The rooms were clean and comfortable. Decor in rooms were a a bit dated. Good value for money. Plenty of parking spaces. There was a pool but we didn't go in it. Close proximity to the main town and pub.

I've stayed at a few places here but this by far is the best and definitely where I feel most comfortable. There is an onsite restaurant and room service so you don't need to leave the hotel to eat if you don't feel like it Definitely recommended

Staff were very friendly and welcoming; room clean and tidy; plenty of space in room; hot chocolate option was welcome; dinner menu could use a couple more options such as light meal/ pasta option; overall quite good

Thank you for your review. I am very disappointed that our accommodation was not up to standard. If you can, please, inform me on when you stayed, which room you occupied and how my staff handled the situation, so I can follow up this complaint to ensure it doesn't happen again.
