The hotel, restaurant, conference space and bar make the Spinifex the best place to stay in Derby. I've stayed twice now and would again, always clean, friendly staff, and good coffee in the restaurant.

This place has Average food, bland menu and small portions. Menu and drinks over priced and wouldn't recommend. Manager needs a lesson in customer service. We found the Boab to be more welcoming with a better menu and atmosphere.

G'day to all at the Spinny. I am writing this to say a bloody big thankyou. My mother Dianne arrived in Derby in late June to look after her terminally ill brother Tazzy in the Hospital, she had nowhere to stay, no friends there, limited funds and was in a real pickle. Darren took her under his wing and organised... More

If you're staying in Derby, the 'Spini' is the place to be. The place has obviously been here for a while but has been completely refurbished and added to in recent times. We stayed in the dongas of which there are quite a few set up around the car park. A donga is a type of transportable building very common... More

Stayed one night for work. Small donga style room but perfectly fine for one night and one person. Good air-con comfy bed and decent tv. Bar and restaurant decent quality and plenty of options. Would stay again if working in the area.

The Spinifex hotel is a nice spot to stay in Derby, be sure to book the luxury hotel rooms if you want a spacious room with queen size bed. The short stay accommodation is king single bed rooms with very little space. The room was very neat, clean and modernly furnished, with all appliances and kitchen equipment. The Hotel restaurant...

Hi Kelly Thanks for taking the time to write this review. Our single rooms are on the small size, especially in comparison to the motels! But they are perfect for tradies or travelers on a budget passing through for a night or two. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, come back and see us soon! Warm Regards Sarah... More

Stayed here on the first night of a Kimberley tour so organised group and everything pre-booked. First impression of the hotel was a large complex with many styles of rooms. Our room was very comfortable ... big screen TV and good bed. Food at the restaurant was hearty, tasty and filling - we had dinner the first night and a... More

Sir, Thank you for your review. Being a small town in our low season, we do close between 1pm and 4pm on weekends. There is a sign on the door prompting you to collect your keys from the bar which is open all day. Staying open all day to assist a small number of people checking in is not possible... More

Disappointed +++. We love Derby but usually stay in our caravan. Being locals working in the communities of the Kimberly, we love to come to town to do some shopping, eat out and relax. Expected a lot more from this place do to its new look. We are used to the high prices up here, so no quibble there. However,... More
