We stayed in this motel during the recent Outback Festival. The rooms were poorly maintained with several cracks in the dividing brick walls where you literally see through to the next unit. Additionally the power switches were dangerous and needed replacing. Be prepared to pay extra if a couple stays in the room.

Located on the edge of town, but was still close enough to walk down the main street. While there is a restaurant it was not open on the nights that we stayed there. The Wi-Fi is only available at the pool, disappointing. Very large rooms and lovely and clean.

The Boulder Opal Motor Inn was a lovely place to return to after a day of tripping and the restaurant was exceptional value with delicious food and drinks. The rooms were spacious and very low noise from traffic.

The motel room was very spacious and also very clean. It's an older style motel but it had everything that a weary traveller could possible need including restaurant. We didn't eat there as we'd already eaten, but the menu was very extensive and reasonably priced.

Spacious room,comfy bed, fantastic restaurant on the motel, really top class. We had some tyre problems and the manager lent us tools,so helpful. The wifi was free but really only worked in the restaurant area,not a problem for us at all.

A lovely motel to stay at. Modern spacious room, under cover parking, very clean and comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the restaurant meals were delicious and very substantial. Not the cheapest motel in Winton but there is no comparison in rooms or amenities. I thank the proprietors for a very enjoyable stay and will definitely stay... More

We stayed here recently as part of a tour visiting Winton. Our room (8) was on the far side of the motel. When it came time to shower, I was really disappointed to find that only a trickle of water emerged from the faucet, though with the assistance of the tour guide, this was eventually rectified, some 24 hours later....

We had an overnight stay on our trip to darwin. Family of five so was a little crowded with extra trundle bed and our portacot but the family suite was booked already so we were happy that we could still be accommodated. Room was very clean though I really do not like shower curtains no matter how clean the bathroom... More

We stayed here for two nights whilst on an outback tour. It was very comfortable, good food and helpful staff. WiFi is best only in the Reception area. Pool would be fantastic if it were heated by the artesian water supply but is a bit cool by mid winter. Good access to the Lark Quarry site and other dinosaur sites... More

This place met all the basic requirements but was getting pretty tired. For the price it was not really value for money. However it was clean, functional and did us fine for one night. Did not try the restaurant so cannot comment. WiFi would not work in our room which was a pain
