“Refurb rooms are good (for Tennant Creek)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

Good value for money (at a corporate rate). Staff are friendly and the bar is only stumbling distance . Refurb rooms are very functional and clean- everything works. Toaster provided. I will stay there again.

The refurbished rooms are at the back of the pub, very central position, very clean and comfortable. Nice firm bed. Best value in town. Don't be put off by the look of the pub from the outside. We have stayed in other more expensive hotels in town, but this one meets most expectations and you dont get many more facilities in the more expensive hotels.

The room is actually very good! I was also put off by the first impression, my husband question me for not booking the other motels.

The beds are comfortable. The bathroom is very model and clean.

Definitely recommended

The reviews for all of the motels in Tennant Creek are not that encouraging and I took a punt with the Goldfields Hotel/motel and booked via Wotif. This was fortunate as the hotel looked a bit rough on the outside and we would have probably gone elsewhere. First impressions can be misleading as the rooms are very good and the locals are well behaved. The town is not at all like Bourke and there were no boarded up shops or high security fences.
The rooms have been recently refubished to a reasonably high standard. The room is well lit, very clean, has a modern bathroom and comfortable beds. It's a pity that they didn'd replace the noisy in-wall airconditioner with a quiete split unit as well. One tip - the air conditioner is turned on with a switch between the beds. The staff were very helfpul and friendly. The pub (and town) were quiet during the night (midweek) and we slept well.
The Wotif price was $110 twin share which was very reasonable compared with some of the other places.

Second time I have stayed here - and now wont stay anywhere else in Tennant. A pleasant surprise a couple of years ago when i couldnt get accommodation at either Bluestone or Eldorado - a bit apprehensive being a single female but was surprised then and not disappointed this trip. The rooms have had a refurb and done very tastefully - not the lick and promise a refurb in the NT usually means. Good quality fittings and although the walk in shower only has a shower curtain (which i personally dont like) you can easily shower with it out of the way - so great big space.
The night we stayed was the chef's first nite so only T Bone available for dinner - but the best surprise was waiting over the road - Wok's Up - chinese restaturant. We couldnt have been happier - great accommodation and great food across the road.
Seriously you should consider this place if you need to stop off in Tennant Creek. You do have to 'check in' at the bar but if you can get past that - you wont be sorry
