“Pleasantly suprised”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2014

Food was excellent. Staff were amazingly attentive. This place is in the middle of nowhere but serviced all our needs. Asked for 2 single bed room as a double bed doesn't cut it for my 6'4" partner. The room is old yes but the single beds were perfect and had the best nights sleep.

You stay there because there's nowhere else to go. The rooms are tired, dated and grotty. The beds are old and lumpy. And there was a funky smell when we first entered, which turned out to be mouldy carpet from the nasty leak in the shower, which goes through the tiles and the wall and soaks the carpet next to the bed. But after a long day on the road it's a hot shower and somewhere to sleep for a few hours, until the lumpy bed forces you up early and back on the road. At $125 a night it is over priced, but there's not much choice, so you suck it up, avert your eyes from the yuk and move on the next day. Lower your expectations and you won't be disappointed.

After the reviews we'd read, we weren't expecting much. Travelling as a "family", my wife and I with my parents, we'd booked a room for 4 people. Much to our surprise though, the room was great. Plenty of space, 5 beds all up and LOTS of room inside. We used the caravan park kitchen to cook dinner as restaurant facilities were very limited but we were prepared for that! All up, better than what we were expecting

The campground part of this establishment had the most amazing views - and unfortunately that also meant being exposed to the rather severe elements the night I was there. However everything stayed where it was meant to despite the wind and water. The amenities block was good, though having to use a code in the middle of the night is annoying! Fabulous meal available at the restaurant and super friendly staff right through. Nit much option at Eucla, but this place does its job well enough

We had read lots of bad reviews about this place. Pulled in and booked the second last available room. Friendly staff at reception and then went to find our room, all within minutes. Ok, so it's very 70s and has that associated musty smell, but it's spacious and clean. I checked the bed thoroughly - spotless. Basic amenities and quiet. NO one could complain about the meals or the service at the restaurant - both were excellent. As soon as we ordered, we were served. Amazingly extensive menu with good value for money prices. Lovely, friendly, attentive staff.
Warm, spacious, comfortable room & bed & clean bathroom. Drainage from the shower was slow, but that's about it! Breakfast was the same quality, and again with the same speed of service.
The telegraph station ruins are well worth the 2 minute drive.
Really not sure why people have canned this place, it's in the middle of nowhere, it's not the Ritz, but it's perfectly fine for a stopover. More than fine in fact.

Was only a 23 degree day but room was sweltering when we arrived at 2.30pm as the light weight curtaining made it impossible to miss the sun.
Room was clean and spacious but needs updating/upgrading.
As only entertainment is catching up with world on TV - rabbits ears do not quite suffice and intermittent reception makes it increasingly annoying
Bar and Restaurant were great - and value for money meals in cafe made up for the expensive fuel.

Room Tip: Get the lower rooms as sun has not melted them throught the day - those closest to the road get the...

On the way over we stayed in this property and was very happy with it but on the way back we went to go to bed after a very long 11 hour trip and could not sleep in the bed as it smelt very heavily of body odour. I sprayed it and pulled it all apart to air my husband slept in a single bed and I had to sleep on the couch with nit a good back to start with was not good.
