“Enjoy my stay.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights, and I enjoy my stay. Friendly atmosphere, nice food, clean rooms in the motel section.

If you are looking for a quirt place to rest, this is the place for you.

I would like to come back.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

The first thing you notice is that the Western Star is not your traditional country pub. The “pub” houses the main bar and pool room with an adjoining beer garden. The hotel, motel and kitchen are all housed in separate buildings spread over a large block.

We booked a room in both the motel and hotel accommodation. The motel rooms are modern and comfortable with all the usual features. The hotel rooms are basic with shared facilities. We were quite happy with both.

What makes this place is the beer garden/dining room. As evening approaches people gather here to have a beer and watch the sun set. There is a good selection of meals although many are of the frozen pre-prepared variety. I opted instead for the tee-bone, chips and salad and wasn’t disappointed.

We flew in. The airport is a little way out of town but there was a phone (no mobile reception) and in no time a car arrived from the pub to shuttle us into town. It would also be option for a lunchtime stop over.

We stayed here - in a motel unit - just at the end of the Town's rodeo - luckily we'd pre-booked.

The room was clean, very well equipped and comfortable. We ate in the restaurant, where food was hearty and good. Service was quick amnd friendly. they serve wine, beer and spirits as well as most pre-mixes.

All up a great stay.

Driving into town is like hitting an oasis of green. And in the middle, this iconic Aussie pub.

Ian and his family are a lot of fun, service is friendly, attentive, but typically laid back outback style.

As I was in town to do a talk on Social Media marketing and the Digital economy, I asked Ian what made his pub unique. Long pause, and then "Well, I take an hour and a half to watch 60 Minutes". Great line.

Love the airconditioner: 12 second hand steel drums joined together. Must be unique!

Rooms were clean and comfortable. We had a great day there.
