We stayed for a night in a deluxe cabin. Nicely set up, it had all that we needed- nice queen bed in a separate room, two sets of bunks, small living area/ kitchenette. Pool was clean and refreshing. We also had dinner in the bistro, and the food was really nice- I had a lamb salad( nice change from a... More

We really have to thank you for your review. We put a lot of effort in to producing fresh, tasty food as opposed to what we call the 'bain marie of deep fried death' you see in a lot of places. Hope it's not too long before we see you again. Cheers Greg More

After a night staying at the dodgy wycliff wells down the road and not even being able to get any dinner or breakfast, the Devils marbles was able to save the trip by serving one of the nicest breakfast I've had in a while. Had a quick look around and found it to be nice beat and tidy with a... More

After not being able to camp at the amazing Devils Marbles because our crappy Wicked Camper tent mattress turned out to be wet and mouldy (that's another story), we stumbled onto this fantastic roadhouse in Wauchope. Bruce and his wife are so welcoming and awesome. The fellas at the bar were really interesting to talk to, the food looked delish,... More

Thank you so much for your review. It's great to hear you had such a great time at our hotel. Just one small point to clear up though. Our wonderful managers Annie and Anthony were the people you have confused with Bruce and his wife. Bruce sold the hotel to us nearly three years ago now. Have a great 2016... More

Friendly Staff, nice place, pet friendly. Only went there for a feed. Food was nice, pool looked nice but we didn't go in. Food and drink prices average. No optus or Telstra mobile reception. Well kept grounds.

The Devils Marbles hotel (aka Wauchope) is a gem of a place right in the heart of the Territory. The food is superb (you get this quality in capital cities! No lie!), the staff are extremely friendly and welcoming people and the hotel itself is basic, but great. The only thing they don't have in the older rooms (they've since... More

Thank you Kara for such a wonderful review. We've been working hard over the last 12 months to take the hotel to a new level. Whilst we still have a fair bit to complete in 2016, it's great that people are appreciating the improvements so far. Have a Merry Xmas and look forward to seeing you both next time. More

We had no idea what to expect and the front of building gives nothing away. It was a real WOW factor. The bar and dining room led into an oasis with pool and beautiful gardens to the rear. The feed was very good at lunch and then breakfast the following morning before we set off on our journey North. Staff... More

Thank you Jacqui for taking the time to review us. Yes, you're correct the front does need a tune up and that is our first project for 2016 (along with a few more surprises).

I unfortunately didnt stay here, but i did stop in to grab a feed and a few beers as we decided to camp up the road at devils marbles (about 5km away). Was a great relaxing atmosphere, good food, cold beer and very friendly service. I will definitely come here to stay next time. Cheers to Annie and Anthony!

I spent three nights at the Devil's Marbles Hotel after a flat tyre stopped me firmly in my tracks.

This is one of the main spots along the Stuart highway on your way to Uluru. Close to devils marbles and wycliff wells, there is nice restaurant and pool to relax with reasonable room rates, of course Aussie standards. Loved the garden
