“A worthy stay in Port Pirie”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

A great place to stay for budget accommodation. Although the motel is somewhat dated, the room has everything you need including a comfortable bed. No need to go into town for a meal as the restaurant attached to reception has a great variety of lovely food. Helpful staff rounded off my work stay in Port Pirie to make it an enjoyable experience.

Homely and comfortable and the hosts Steve and Lee welcomed us and tended to our every need. Lovely hot shower, comfy bed and a great variety of mini bar. Restaurant meal was divine. Don't drive past that motel. Very well located to all shopping facilities.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

Very basic, very dated accommodation. Over priced at $90 for a single bed room, in my opinion. Ok if you are desperate for 1 nights accommodation. It's not so bad if the neighbouring guests are considerate, but I was kept awake half the night by all the "window rattler" air conds, and a woman with a shrill voice in the room next door. Close to city centre, and there is a pool. These are the only advantages I can think of. Bentleys Cabin Park has better accommodations at comparable prices but this was booked out.

We recently spent 1 night at Travelway motel. The manager was very rude when trying to book in. If there was other accomodation available we would have gone elsewhere. The room was very basic. Had to wear shoes indoors because the carpet was stained and dirty. We were offered a foldout bed with broken springs and a thin, lumpy mattress even though we had been assured beforehand that the extra bed was very comfortable.After stating that it wasnt fit for sleeping on and requesting a mattress we were given one. Cleaning staff were very friendly and helpful.

The rooms may be tired, but they are functional and very clean and well offset by the friendliness of staff and management. The restaurant offers good meals: breakfast and dinner and the in-room mini bar is surprisingly reasonably priced - not the usual "rip off at all cost" approach adopted by a lot of other places

We spent 3 nights during the Master Games. A good budget motel with friendly managers. We found the motel well maintained with a lovely swimming pool area with bbq and a onsite restaurant that offered breakfast & dinners. The rooms are a little tired but were very clean with a microwave and toaster, airconditioned, comfy bed and flat screen tv. It is good value for money and is within walking distance of the main streets of Port Pirie. One minor thing would be to have some plates and cutlery in the room for the microwave but other than that a good budget motel.
