We stayed here overnight whilst on business and found the hotel clean and welcoming. The staff were pleasant and the rooms were of a good size. I found that it had everything that you would expect of a metropolitan hotel and it was actually a lot larger than I would have expected. It appears to look like a donger from... More

We stayed here for one night at the end of our Gibb River Rd trip. The apartment was spotlessly clean, very comfortable and well equipped (with a washer/dryer in the bathroom as an added bonus!). I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Derby!

Stayed 1 night at the start of our Kimberley tour. New accommodation and good room with usual amenities. Had dinner at the hotel - prices high, in particular alcohol but this is a remote location. Free WiFi and plenty of free parking. Seems to be the stopping place for most of the Kimberley bus tours

We didn't stay here, but came for an evening meal as a group after cruising the Kimberleys with Onetide Charters. We joked that they would have to have good food to come up to the standard we had enjoyed on our cruise - but we were not disappointed. The servings were generous and the food delicious. Service was prompt. Recommended

Room here was really nice, had a balcony. Big TV, kitchenette and a washer/dryer. Bed was comfy and also had a nice lounge to sit on. Reasonably priced and customer service was really good. Love staying here when in Derby. Will definitely be back.

We had a stay here after car trouble. Staff friendly and helpful. Rooms clean and comfortable, with small functional kitchenette. Walking distance to CBD and the public pool across the road is a green oasis in a dry and dusty town.

The Motel Room (room with M prefix) was found to be very spacious, immaculately clean and well maintained. The food and service at the hotel's restaurant was also excellent with the restaurant being well patronised on the two nights that I dined there (recommended and used by locals). The restaurant staff were both friendly and helpful. I would have no... More

I think the thing that defines a really good place is a high standard across all elements of the experience. The Spinny is a mixed bag. It should have been a 4 plus experience and my original rating was a three but hey I am over the brekky experience now so I upgraded it to a four before posting. Reception... More

Stayed in an upstairs room that was very comfortable and clean, good firm bed and nice linens. Restaurant served fabulous food at all meal times, great taste and generous portions, finally a chef who knows how to cook a steak rare. Sadly the waitstaff were kept so busy with the crowds of local people, tourists and coach passengers I didn't... More

Spent 1 night in a rack room, clean and tidy but only a single bed. Nice hot shower Okay for a single night but would look for another option if staying longer. a bit disappointed that the fridge was turned off when i arrived, no ice and unable to keep drinks cold.
