“I KEEP GOING BACK”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

I am very fortunate to have an Piper Lance aircraft and have visited Birdsville 3 times this month , the races with 4 friends and we all sleep under the plane as there is no accommodation avialable(staff and management only) and on my way to and from Adels Grove (another awesome place) with my wife and 2 16 yr olds.The Birdsville races is full a lot of fun at the races and the pub and at night with Fred Brophys travelling boxing tent , which I believe is the only one in Australia and the world.Its full on for 2/3 days and then reverts back to a quite town of 80 people ,which we enjoyed to and from Adels grove , the motel rooms are five star if you have a family room there are 2 bedrooms and it is immaculate .And don't forget the bakery it is fantastic value and range of food ( I believe the bakery close mid October through the hotter months not sure when it opens again ) The staff are fantistic a special mention to Tony the refueler funny guy

Room Tip: All rooms are 5 star tv , coffee tea , family room awesome has 2 rooms and airconditioning

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 Was expecting to see an outdated room and was surprised to find rooms great.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.
