Our arrival at the Spinifex Hotel was a very pleasant experience. To discover a fresh looking and recently built place to stay in Derby was our first surprise. The second pleasure was to discover a place with very clean and excellent amenities including the great swimming pool. The third factor was to open our double room door to a very... More

The room was amazing, not only huge, but had self catering facilities and a free washer/dryer in the huge bathroom. Super clean with quality fittings, the most comfortable bed and lots of fluffy pillows, I could have stayed longer! Obviously the hotel has not been open for long since its complete rebuild, and it has been done so well. Big... More

We recently had a beautiful stay in the beautiful quiet hamlet of Derby, staying at the Spinifex Hotel. We attended the Long Table dinner and can not speak more highly of the experience. However our positive Derby experience was added to by great accommodation at the Spinifex and a couple of great meals at the Wharf. At the Spinifex we... More

As an entertainer I get to do short stays in many hotels and many smaller towns. Often the accommodation is very basic and the hotel itself dated. To my surprise The Spinifex in Derby was modern and comfortable much more like a nice inner city hotel than a country pub. Great staff, good food, lovely breakfast and even enjoyed a... More

I stayed at the 'Spinni' for two nights in June for work and the rooms, food and staff are excellent. Very clean, modern practical rooms that have everything you need. Location is great and the restaurant / bar do great food.

We were very pleased to have found the Spinifex Hotel, having stayed in various other places in Derby and found them all to be quite dodgy. The Spini is new-ish, clean, well appointed and a very pleasant place to stay. The pub meals in the hotel are really good. It's well worth wandering across the carpark for dinner. Great menu... More

We stayed in one of the "luxury motel rooms" which was very well equipped with all you could want after travelling across the Kimberley. We had a balcony overlooking the sea which was pleasant. The staff were welcoming, the price reasonable and I would certainly stay here again.

Being a regular traveller to Derby, I have been searching for somewhere reasonable to stay for years and was encouraged by the rebuild at the "Spinny". However, accommodation offered (at $275 per night) is really disappointing and nothing more than well fitted-out dongas. The sad part of this review, is that it's probably the best accommodation in Derby. The rooms... More

An expensive place, but then everything is in the Kimberley. There are cheaper places in Derby, but not such good quality, so you get what you pay for. The 'luxury motel' rooms are good, and well fitted out with washing machines and balconies. The restaurant and bar areas are quite nice, although can be a bit rough at times.
