What a great hotel! Refurbished outside a year ago, the inside is currently undergoing an update whilst retaining the character. Great brekky with a warm welcome, excellent service and the Devils Marbles are just 15km away.

I live in Alice Springs and often travel through Wauchope. If I ever need to stop overnight near Tennant Creek I make sure it is at Wauchope. The rooms are pretty basic but they are clean and well maintained. The food is surprisingly good and the staff are always friendly.

We had cabin for three but because it was small we got another one. The aircon was excellent the rooms were very basic but we had the best time and the Pub was great we managed to watch the cricket plus there was a plague of green grasshoppers all stuck to the wire door. They didn't bother us at all.... More

We stayed here a couple of times while working in the area and always found it to be excellent. The rooms are very basic but always spotless. No tv but you spend the evening in the bar or restaurant anyway, chatting to the staff and any locals who are around. The meals are great as are the breakfasts. Staff are... More

Very unexpected spot to find a lovely little place. Simple rooms but everything u need for a stop over. All our food was perfect & kids loved the pool. Very close to the devils marble to view sunsets or sunrise. Good first stop Katherine to wauchope.

In providing a rating about this hotel you have to bear in mind that the only nearby accommodation is little more than a caravan park, which makes the Wauchope Hotel look very good! However, the accommodation is a basic donga with a double bed and a shower. That said, the pool and gardens are delightful. We turned up on a... More

We stayed at Wauchope after driving from Katherine on our way towards Adelaide. We had been recommended by friends to drive straight through Tennant and stay here, by golly am I happy we did. We stayed in a donga, which was neat and tidy with an ensuite. After checking in, we went for a swim in the pool and had... More

stayed here to view an "eclipse moon" rising over the Devils Marbles, was pleasantly surprised by the beer garden and pool, very nice after a hot day! Friendly staff and the meal was pretty good too. Cabins are basic but adequate, recommend the place and will stay there again.
