Stayed two nights in the motel where the room was large (1 queen and 2 single) and very clean. The bed was comfy and area very quiet (away from the highway - not that there's much traffic at night anyway). We used this as a base to explore the Southern Flinders Ranges and enjoyed getting back to our room to... More

Stayed for two nights for the Wilpena Under The Stars event. The room we had was very nice, no complaints at all. The room was very clean, the bed was comfortable and the room was of a good size. The hosts were great and we would have no hesitation in staying there again.

One word unless you are desperate for a bed - DON'T ! These units are very poor for the price charged ($165 on for three people) I don't think they have been upgraded since they were built (1985) so this was very disappointing as we had a visitor from overseas. The whole of Hawker looked tired and run down including... More

We stayed 2 nights in the holiday cottages which are a short distance from the motel and would recommend this option to anyone spending a couple on nights or more in Hawker. The cottages are 2 bedroom, lounge with dining table and kitchen. Small but comfortably furnished with everything you need. Very quiet area.

I have been staying at the Outback as a tour operator for more than 10 years. My customers have always found it very comfortable - the rooms are large, always clean and quiet. The meals are all home cooked by the hostess and the menu offers a choice of dishes you would not expect in a small country town. Always... More

We travelled with Jingo and stayed with Mick & Jenny Webb at the Outback Chapmanton Motel as part of our tour through the Flinders Ranges. The room was really spacious, the biggest we'd had all trip, it was spotlessly clean, well fitted out. Mick and Jingo were a wealth of information over a couple of beers before a sumptuous meal....

Restaurant at this motel has now closed without notice and the only option in town is the pub (good food but cannot cope with demand - queues for tables). Room spacious and clean. Managers disappeared on holiday weekend night and relief staff unable to manage a problem with the water (we resolved it ourselves after enquiring in town). Manager gave... More

I found Outback Chapmantons to be a lovely experience with restaurant quality meals and friendly service. The rooms in our units were neat, clean, spacious and well decorated. Laundry facilities provided were in good condition. I found advice on places to visit was helpful.

We had travelled through the outback for 2 weeks and this was a welcome find. The room was really spacious, the biggest we'd had all trip, it was spotlessly clean, well fitted out and the hosts, Mick & Jenny Webb were obliging, friendly and helpful. A very comfortable stay, plenty of pillows and bedding, and a very competitive price. I... More

Had pre booked a unit so there was no excuse for unit 3 not being prepared properly. Some of the curtains were not hanging on the curtain rings so first impressions were that it was rather neglegted. The freezer door was broken it needed defrosting and there was no ice tray provided. The kitchen table was sticky so hadn't been... More
