We decided to stay her as it was in close range to the concert. The room was neat and tidy and the reception staff were very friendly. It must be a good place as the band stayed at the same place as we did and got to have an early morning chat to him,

Thank you for your review. The concert at Globe Oval, next door to our Motel, was a first for us too. It was staged there because of the then current football season were using the usual grounds used for local open-air concerts. We were a bit nervous about late loud noise etc but everything went well and all quiet by... More

Best room service steak dinner EVA!!!! Not a lot of fancy, but everything necessary for an overnight stay!! Parking out the front made it a lot easier for unpackin & repacking car securely. Room service is thru a little "window" so u can take ur trousers/bra off & relax & eat in!!!!

We have stayed here before finding it the best in Port Pirie. This visit due to a wedding we were offered one of the spa cabin rooms, for the same cost as our ordinary room. We took the offer, however found the cost to be more than we pay for a spa room in the Clare Country Club, in the... More

A mixed bag this last visit. I have been here before and seem to remember it being very good. It's still a good motel, it's just a few things that went amiss this time around. Mainly a couple of housekeeping things, one of which was rectified immediately upon me bringing it to the attention of reception, which is appreciated. Comfortable,... More

I have quite often stayed here, this time they missed the ticket! Room and surrounds were acceptable as usual for an overnight stay. Booked the B&B option. Unfortunately the fridge did not work, and I expect neither did the AC. We took our leisure to go to buffet breakfast, unfortunately all the bain marie were cold as was the bacon,... More

Thank you for your review. I appreciate all reviews about our property. I'm curious as to which room and when you stayed as I have no reports regarding an air-conditioner and or a fridge not working in any room. Could you please contact me at your earliest convenience about this? Recently, this year, we up-graded air-conditioners in 25 rooms with... More

Very nice motel with very friendly helpful staff. We stayed for 2 nights and the price was very reasonable. We ate in the motel dining room one night and the meals were excellent. The price of the meals were closer to restaurant prices than hotel prices but the food was lovely, especially the whiting. I made the terrible mistake of... More

Very reasonably priced for a serviced motel, and free Wi-fi to boot! A great motel with very comfortable, well equipped and spacious rooms. I had a room next to the pool and enjoyed a swim in the mornings before heading off to work and then cooling off in the evenings after a busy day. I must admit that I did... More

After driving almost 600ks in extreme heat,this motel was just what we needed. Had a swim in the pool to cool off. Our room was amazing, very clean and extremely comfortable and spacious. Parking at front door. Highly recommended. Staff are all very friendly and helpful. The restaurant on site serves great meals.

Booked on-line. Check-in all logged as per the booking. Nice room, friendly staff. Air-con good on a 39 deg. day. Comfortable bed, good location and nice and quiet. Would certainly stay here again when back in Pirie.
