I came here with my sone and nephew after a wonderful trip through the Northern Flinders Ranges. We stayed for two nights in one of the poolside units and found it to be spacious (easily accommodating 3 beds), clean and practically laid out. The owners, Maz and Phil were very helpful and attentive. It was a great base to explore... More

If I were to drive the Strezelecki, Oodnadatta or Birdsville tracks again (and I most probably will) I will be sure to make the Marree Hotel part of the agenda. Phil and Maz are great hosts and treat all guests like family. The rooms are comfortable and clean, and the food is surprisingly good. The staff are largely backpackers and... More

Me and a friend stayed here for a night before the drive up Oodnadatta Track. The pub was cheerful and rowdy into late and was a welcome sight as we arrived late at night. We called ahead to inform them of our late arrival but the staff were there all the way manning the bar already. We stayed inside the... More

My husband and I and two great friends have just returned from Marree. We stayed 3 nights at the Marree Hotel and we enjoyed every minute of our stay including the flight over Lake Eyre. It is a great pub and Maz, Phil and all the staff looked after us in such a friendly way and nothing was too much... More

My husband and myself stayed for 2 nights a week ago and I wish I was back there now! It is a great old pub with lots of character in the bar with the new cows head which looks at you as you walk in to the horse collar mounted on the wall, old photos and museum. We opted to... More

Such a friendly great old fashioned Australian Pub. The Publicans Phil, Maz Turner and staff really know how to make you feel at home. After the long drive from up north the cold beer was worth the drive. I stayed in the original Pub Rooms with a very comfortable bed. Shower and toilets were just down the hall. Rooms with... More

Thank you so much for your kind words Peter. We strive to ensure all of our guests feel at home. It's nice that you enjoyed staying in the original rooms upstairs. Many people enjoy the atmosphere and experience of staying in a two storey stone hotel built in 1883! The view from the verandah is great too as you can... More

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...

So lovely that you took the time to comment on Tripadviser, and that you enjoyed your stay with us! Phil and I treat the hotel like our home and welcome all guests as if they are guests into our home. Picking up Travellers from the airstrip is no different and of course Phil can never get away without Bundy our... More

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 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
