“Surprisingly good in the middle of nowhere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

We had the pleasure of staying in their motel whilst on a tagalong tour, for 2 nights. We were pleasantly surprised to find a very modern motel room with even a flat screen tv (although we did not use it). The bed was comfy and I must mention that the towels must be brand new - thick and luxurious. Food at the hotel was terrific.

Visited Birdsville last weekend and was very impressed with the hotel, the rooms, the meals and the overall vibe. It was a great experience and something we have always wanted to do. Well done to the operators on the clean facilities and well kept surrounds. Certainly much better than anticipated.

Pleasantly suprised at the hotel rooms. Was expecting to see an outdated room and was surprised to find rooms great. Clean and comfortable. Aircon. Laundry next door. Flat screen TV. Food was great, although we did wait 45mins for it and our garlic bread just didn't arrive. Staff apologized offering refund, we took the free desert instead.

Birdsville Hotel really comes alive the week of the Famous Birdsville Races when its impossible to get a room as theyre all prebooked. I have stayed here fornat least 15 of the 30 yrs I have been coming to the races so know it well. In that time the rooms have improved out of sight with new wings being built to accommodate the extra traffic that now visits Birdsville throughout the yr. Dining room is world standard and far above what you would expect from an outback pub. Can highly recommend it to anyone looking for a taste of the real Australia.

Room Tip: The newer wings have better standard rooms

this place does not care about its patrons. My wife slipped in the ladies due to vomit on the floor. when reported to staff all they said 'yes we know but have not got around to cleaning it up yet'. This ruined a whole trip because the staff did not even care enough to ask if my wife was Ok or could they help her clean up. The attitude was 'well thats tought'.

While others may rate this place highly BEWARE if anything goes wrong they don't care

We were pleasantly surprised with our stay at the Birdsville Hotel. Just passing through, unfortunately we were only able to stay two nights. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the food in the restaurant was very enjoyable. The service was great and the staff were very friendly. Many city hotels could learn a lot about service and hospitality from the Birdsville hotel.

I have stayed at this hotel twice now and can not fault the service or the helpfulness of the staff. rooms are very clean and provide a welcome respite to camping. The hotel Manager, Kim is lovely and very pleasant to deal with. I will most definitely return to this fabulous place.
