New owners have made improvements to this hotel, and it looks like they are continuing to upgrade. We stop off here reasonably frequently on our way through, either for a meal, or most recently, stopping the night. The ensuite rooms are always very clean, although very basic (dongas), however the beds are very comfortable and the evening meal is something... More

This is close to the Devil's Marbles and is very handy. We stayed here for one night enroute to the Alice. Room is tiny with a Queen and single squeezed into an area really only suitable for one bed, but you are in the sticks and the bed was comfortable and the shower hot. No TV in room. You can... More

We pulled in for a quick snack one morning and ordered a toasted sandwich. Beautiful thick slices of bread, plenty of great tasting filling. Almost worth missing breakfast for this! We often pull up at Wauchope when travelling to and from Alice - I can recommend the breakfasts, lunches and evening meals. All high quality, all very reasonably priced. A... More

We were making our way from outback Queensland heading towards Alice Springs. Fellow travellers had told us about this hotel, and that time permitting, we should bypass Threeways and Tennant Creek, and drive the extra Kms to Wauchope. This turned out to be great advise. We stayed onenight in the caravan park behind the hotel , basic but perfectly adequate... More

As someone who lives and breathes hospitality, it was so refreshing to get out of town for the night. Wauchope Hotel has so much character that is so very rare. Clean rooms, clean grounds, beautiful beer garden, great people and excellent food! Ask for the Hammerjack Chicken :)

Don't expect the Hilton with this place as it's in the middle of nowhere. I tell you what the Hilton hasn't got though - beautiful sunsets over the Devils Marbles. Make a point of heading down the road to the Marbles (only 10km) for sunset it's spectacular - don't forget the Aerogard though.The rooms are basic and affordable and most... More

This place should advertise more as you wouldn't know this little gem existed from the highway. The garden is immaculate and the pool is sparkling clean - a welcome relief after driving all day. Only a stone's throw from the Devils Marbles this is the perfect place to stop for a meal. The schnitzels are home-made and the steak my... More

The dongas rooms (50 dollars) are aren't big, but they certainly are quite nice and well equipped (fridge, kettle and aircon). The staff and the owner are very nice and helpful and they are good at making you feel welcome. The pool is very nice and a good place to hang around on hot and sunny day

On a long drive up the Stuart highway there aren't many places to stay. It looked like the reviews were okay for here so we decided to pay a bit of a steep price hoping for a nice room. What we actually got was a filthy small cabin. There were dead moths and grasshoppers on the floor, someone else's hairs... More

Hi Christine Lucy, Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you - we're just getting our head around the mechanics of TripAdvisor. Thankyou so much for you comments because it has highlighted an ongoing problem that we have had for a few months now - that is inconsistency with housekeeping standards. Like most remote roadhouses we tend to... More

Although Wauchope is only a stop over Roadhouse with cabins and a caravan park available, it does have some great meals available in the restaurant and a great pool to cool off in. It is the best place to stay to view the Devils's Marbles in the evening. as the location is only 8km away, so a safe drive without... More
