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.

I have visited Derby many times with work and in my view this is the best place in town to stay. Go for on of the spacious long stay rooms rather than the very small short stay rooms. The long stay rooms are spacious with a functional kitchenette and laundry facilities in the bathroom. The room wasn't serviced one day... More

Great modern amenities. Lovely staff. The room was clean, spacious and furnished with a wonderfully bed. The pool is kept clean and is partly shaded, also open till 9pm. Directly across from the public pool. Close to a kebab joint and a gallery/cafe. A short drive from woolies. Had mixed reports about the food from the locals but ate in... More

A newish place constructed from transportable type accommodation. Better than it sounds, and they really feel like hotel rooms inside. Nice and clean, big TVs, decent beds. But the highlight is the service. Good all round, but Sarah, the receptionsit, is outstanding. I asked at reception if somebody might have a phone charger I could borrow. Sarah made the journey...

Booked in here for work trip by recommendation of co-worker that lives in Derby. Fairly quick book in at reception, ordinary looking but modern building but roomy, clean and air-con going when room door opened, so nice relief from 40+ temperature outside. Ground floor room likely cooler than upper level. Free wifi a bonus and pretty good for Kimberley. Restaurant... More

Modern rooms, great air con and well equipped. Would like to have seen a bar fridge stocked but maybe that's me being picky. friendly staff and nice restaurant. Would stay again. had a restaurant in the main building food and service good. Would find a place like this in a much bigger town. We would stay here again

Stayed with them last month when I had to be in Derby for a conference. Beautiful atmosphere and very well kept rooms. Food was just great. From now on, if we go to Derby, this will be the only place we will be staying in.

I have stayed at the Spinifex a couple of times for work, both times place was extremely clean and tidy, staff very helpful. Only draw back is make surf you are in a large room as the smaller ones are very small. Great place to stay, will stay again. Meals are nice
