It was once a Grand Hotel and the owners are gradually restoring it for comfortable accommodation . I liked the setup, It is different and it was the only Motel or hotel that actually charged the rate that was quoted on tripadviser for our whole 5 week trip. We had the spa room . the bed was comfortable the spa... More

I wondered if the building was actually safe. Yes, in it's day it would have been very grand, but you have to use your imagination to see it. Our upstairs room was nice and big. In a place like Norseman you don't have much choice.

Stayed overnight. Reasonably clean but my pillow stunk of cigarette smoke! Basic accommodation at the best. Dog friendly at least. Friendly enough and self service breakfast available. Hot showers. Smoker probably smoked outside but the pillows need changing or washing....

Stepping through the front door is like stepping back half a century. The hotel has all the conveniences you need, but the setting is 1950s. Our welcome was friendly and our room was large and included a spa. The price we paid was excellent compared to other remote locations. Breakfast being included was a bonus in a town hat doesn't...

For $90 we get a carpeted 'donga' with a lopsided toilet and a comfortable clean bed. An absolute treat for us is the shower had amazing pressure, always a simple win! Added perk, do it yourself breakfast. Beware for those that are hoping for more modern accommodation/amenities!

What a wonderful find on a rainy day in Norseman. Made to feel so welcome. Sure its a bit run down but so clean and cute! It can be a bit tricky travelling with a dog but this place is perfect as they have some dog friendly cabins. Warm, cosy and comfortable. And to then find that the $90 includes... More

After a very difficult couple of days travel from the Pilbara which included running off the road with a blown steerer and fuel filter problems it was nice to ring up this motel and be greeted by a friendly voice. We were arriving late and she was very helpful in suggesting somewhere to get a good feed on the way... More

We loved it My mother would hate it Great old building, a bit shabby and run down but I'd prefer it any day over a sanitised bland motel. Lovely warm welcome and someone who understands that we love our dog and want her with us. Brekky included and best rate of all our stays across the Nullabor. I'd go again... More

I've stayed here a couple of times over the last year and I love Norseman and it's unique outback charm and character more each time I visit. This motel is 75 years old and was built with an art deco features of which there are glimpses throughout the building. It was built at the height of the mining boom in... More
