“Good for overnight stay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2012 via mobile

Rooms are spacious, clean with room service options. Austar and free wireless are a bonus. On the Adelaide side of Port Augusta so a bit out of town but is value for money with plenty of off street parking. Would stay here again on a road trip- nothing flash but clean and comfortable

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

This is my second visit to this motel and little has changed. The rooms are fine and quite large, I asked for a smaller room this time, but it was still quite large. It had 3 chairs in the room unlike Sails in the Desert with only one and 3 times the price. Motel is not new but fine and clean for an overnight stay. Plenty of room allotted for individual room parking.

On the highway on the Adelaide side of the city. A couple of km's out of town but quiet, clean and great showers.

We didn't stay long here - literally only sleeping and showering for one night. While the rooms were of good size, the bed wasn't great and neither was the bedding. It was winter and we got cold. The shower was okay, nothing spectacular but was moderately clean. Wouldn't want to stay here much longer but was okay for one night.

We stayed here on a quick trip across the long paddock to WA. We were able to get a superior room out the back. The king size bed and brick wall ensured an excellent night sleep away from the traffic noise. We had a meal in the restaurant as well as a glass of wine. My husband's steak looked delicious and I was a bit jealous of his choice. Neither of us had room for dessert.

Standard Room - so certainly not as wonderful as the reviews for those. We arrived very late after reception closed and left very early. For that purpose it was absolutely fine. Didn't use any of the facilities. Room was clean and spacious enough. Bed was okay. Location great for those driving through. Would stay here again.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2012

We stopped here after a long days drive from Cobar in NSW on way to WA - Rooms are par for the course for a 3 star motel - clean & comfortable - Rates a little on the high side at $115 but that seems to be the market price in that part of the country - We did not try the restaurant but instead went into town to try out one of the old pubs - Would recommend for an overnight stay
