“Opal Inn Caravan Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

We enjoyed staying at this Park, amenities very good. No water to sites, but can be purchased across the road next to Info centre. Very friendly staff and helpful. Caravan Park part of the Opal Inn Hotel, and while we didn't try the dining room, the food seemed reasonably priced. Can walk to the town from Caravan Park.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2015

Stayed here a few times in the rooms, my last stay was in the campground in a tent. Not much grass and a little noisy with the trucks but wasn't too bad. Showers are clean and pretty good, it costs 20 cents for four minutes to use the shower. $18 for unpowered but you get a 10% discount at the pub and 5 cents off a litre at the servo so I saved about $10

Older style rooms but excellent value for money. Price includes continental breakfast served in the dining room and a cold beer. Rooms were quite clean. Staff polite and friendly. My only bit of advice DO NOT take room 29 only because of where the room is situated the air con simply cannot compete with the heat in this room because of its location. Other than that the other rooms were fine and the air conditioning worked well :)

Nothing special about this motel. Bed seemed comfortable enough and front desk staff were friendly and helpful. However, noise from next door and upstairs carried through walls. House keeping seemed a bit slack - had to speak to front desk on more than one occasion after house keeping had failed to do something. Meals ok but again some were better than others and could do with a bit more variety (too much chicken). Hamburger at outback diner next door better and cheaper.

We stayed 2 nights to/from Uluru. Clean and quite. I had issue with first family room on ground floor (found couple cockroaches running around...) but got room change to first floor with no problems.

Overall comfortable place to stay in the red centre :)

Hi Agnes

Thank you for your honest review, occasionally we encounter difficult situations such as “cockroaches” unfortunately on this occasion our preventative measures were not effective.

Thank you again for choosing to stay at our property

Price good and restaurant food good, however due to warm weather the Airconditioner was too small for the room and only cooled the room to a good temp by 3 am or so, not a good nights sleep so not good for long drives. I will choose another venue during summer months.
