“Watch for the water gouge”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Please be aware that the water at Nundroo is undrinkable - I'm not just talking a bit smelly or funny tasting - it is extremely salty. You must bring your own drinking water if you want to stay at this roadhouse because if you don't you will be paying around $6 for a bottle. I am sure this is a price gouge, freight charges are not THAT high. The room was cheap for WA, but very rough and dingy, but when no other choice what can you do?
By the way prices in WA can be twice that in other states and sometimes alot more.
They claim the tyranny of distance, but I believe it is just because they can.

Room Tip: Take a caravan and free camp where possible.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012 via mobile

Stayed here one night traveling to Broome. Looks terrible from outside but room and bathroom clean enough. Dinner was really nice. Paid $90 for the room which is probably overpriced but had a good night sleep. One bed not too good. Friendly staff. No mobile reception here but pay phone to use. Would like to see these places across the Nullabor spend a bit off money and tidy up the motel.

Stayed September 2012, traveled with friends

Well, even though the food was actually quite reasonable, the Italian chef, grumpy Scotsman, friendly yet somewhat odd looking characters, (we are still disputing whether some are male or female or a comibantion of the above), made us feel we walked onto a movie set...perhaps they were filming an episode of the Adams family..? Accomodation was a bit of a dive, (watch the aircon/heather device...noisy like you would'nt believe and it leaks freezing cold water on you as you exit the room..)but basically what we expected. Friendly and helpful staff deserve a reward-we think it can not be easy working in this remote location.

One of those places where there's not much to choose by way of accommodation, and you don't expect much. It's a pretty dusty, barren place. Having said that, my motel room was fine - clean, if old, and had everything I needed.

The staff were also friendly - some local characters and travellers in the bar and restaurant. The food was quite good considering where this place is (possibly because there seem to be quite a few local workers living here) and the dining room in the bar was more like a restaurant than a roadhouse.

Nundroo is a good stopping point at the start of the Nullarbor when heading west, and a great place to take a side trip down to Fowlers Bay (the most amazing place), but next time I plan to go straight to Fowlers Bay and stay there.
