This was a second stay at the hotel, and the "new" owners certainly know how to look after people. Four of us had flown in, and after flying over the pub to let them know we had arrived (no mobile reception), Phil came to the airstrip in the Ute with his trusty dog to pick us up. This is a...

I stayed for one night as i was in town for business. I choose a cabin, out by the pool, which was better than I expected. Bigger room than expected with queen and a single, as well as a little table and chairs. Bathroom was large, and the shower was good. Breakfast was easy - help yourself in the breakfast... More

We have been receiving some great feedback on our meals so we are really pleased you also enjoyed a meal from our classic Outback menu.

We stayed here one night and chose a room on the hotel itself rather then a cabin. Nostalgic!! It's a trip down memory lane up there with creaking wooden floors and historic bathrooms (m & f) down the hall. I've seen inside the cabins which cost $20 more and they are nice and modern. I'd happily return here because of... More

Marree is a real town, albeit a tiny one. We found the pub to be friendly and well run. We paid $140 for a cabin by the pool which included a cereal and toast breakfast. These are spacious and comfortable cabins, not dongas, but they are not self-contained. They have a fridge and tea making as well as a table... More

Hi Daisyclover, Thank you so much for the wonderful review. I thought I'd address your comment on the bathrooms. Of our 28, on-site, en-suite rooms, 10 of them (one of them being the one that you stayed in) are built to accommodate older and disabled guests with restricted movement. The showers are open plan (wet rooms) to help with those... More

Great staff, great other patrons. Forget what you have heard in the past. The new owners have made this pub into A great outback pub. This iconic hotel should be on your your list. Will be back unfortunately not soon enough!

Hi FootrotH3, How great that you noticed the difference! It seems that our hard work is paying off! We are endeavouring to deliver a level of customer service that all visitors to our Hotel are entitled to. Perhaps the difference is that we love what we do and we love meeting the people that visit our hotel and listening to... More

The first thing that strikes you about the Marree Hotel is just how busy it is! The Hotel is not far from the back of beyond with a town population struggling to exceed 60, and the hotel is more packed that a Chapel Street bar. It's not surprising though. Marree is the southern gateway to the Birdsville and the Oodnadatta... More

Accommodation options in tiny Marree are limited, so lucky the Marree Hotel has lots to offer in terms of accommodation, food and beverages, down-home hospitality and all-round outback charm. We stayed two nights as part of a group, in one of the 'dongas' out the back of the hotel. The room was fine, clean and surprisingly spacious with a comfy... More

This sure aint the Hilton with dodgy plumbing and everything a bit rough around the edges, but this is your typical outback/country pub. The food was fantastic and owners very nice. We had an upstairs room with a family of four which did the job for the night. I was worried as there was no heating in the room, just... More

We stayed here overnight on our way to Arkaroola. We stayed in the cabins which were fine for 1 night or even longer. The bed was comfortable and the shower was fabulous. The Hosts, Maz and Phil, were lovely people. We spoke to Phil at the bar whilst enjoying afternoon drinks. He is a very nice man. We had dinner... More
