The potshot is the place to be with the best of all worlds= backpackers or resort, fine dining poolside or normal restaurant or pub dining/room service, the bar has a nice outdoor section and seams to be the local hangout for all the dive staff. Room was recently renovated, we also had a free upgrade from backpacker queen to normal... More

If you are expecting 4 star accommodation then i suggest you keep driving, the standard room is no more than a hostel room, unless you request a luxury room and pay the inflated rate then forget it, standard rooms are overpriced and should be classed as a hostel room rate

It's not bad but also not good.... A little bit dirty and rundown however, the cheapest way to stay in Exmouth. Dorms are spacious and more or less clean but the bathroom was quite dirty. Additionally, the staff is not really helpful - and the luggage room is a big risk for your staff....

Osprey Apartments - opposite Potshot Hotel We were a group of 3, visiting Exmouth to swim with the Whaleshark and enjoy Ningaloo Reef and the surrounding area. Sharing a room was not an option so after looking at all the 2-hotel-room options in town, I found these 2 and 3 bedroom apartments. This was the cheaper option, plus it had... More

Stayed here as needed somewhere within a tight budget to stay while doing to whale shark tour. As it was in the middle of the season most places were booked out or the prices had jumped conciderabe. Pot shot was a very simple,easy choice and were upgraded on arrival which was great to get a king bed! Room was clean... More

Staff were gracious, room was nice - queen size bed, nice bathroom - one airconditioner that needs the key in to operate but does not take long to cool down. But the door faces a field and OMG the flies were terrible - - to be fair they had just gone through a cyclone and apparently the flies bred like... More

I got bumped from the chopper and had to stay here for a few days. The breakfast is pretty good, but there is nothing to do here. They have an OK bar, but don't expect any of the locals to talk to you. ZERO internet.

Stayed 3 nights in a dorm, not great atmosphere but that was mainly to do with unfriendly roommates. Rooms are not clean, a bed in our room stayed uncleared for the whole time we were there despite no occupant. Toilets are in the room which is frustrating when you need a midnight pee and the light wakes everyone up. The... More

Stayed for one night in the backpackers section as a lay-over. Have been to many backpackers before and this place is pretty average: walls are paper thin, virtually no natural sunlight in the room if you didn't open the bathroom / toilet door and the grounds are somewhat depressing. Something should probably also be done about the strong smell of... More
