While returning to Adelaide from Alice Springs if you want to get away from the busyness of Coober Pedy, especially during peak tourist season I recommend staying here. Very basic rooms similar to the Opal Inn in Coober Pedy the only difference is Glendambo hasn't got TV's in their motel rooms but Telstra mobile coverage is great here if you... More

After reading the reviews I wasn't expecting much and we didn't get much. Our room had dirty carpets and grubby tiles but it was better than camping out in the cold and wet. The room had a good heater and electric blanket which was nice. The restaurant however was freezing and understand it would be difficult to warm such a... More

My Sister & I made an unplanned stop after having a slight problem with our car. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Glendambo. So much so that we also stayed on our return visit. It is an outback experience so you will pay for it. You will also need to remember that they rely on bore water so you can... More

Very nice establishment. Beautiful building and good food. Very nice around a huge fire place on a cold night. Good place to sit and have a chat with other travellers. Rooms are reasonably appointed and clean. although for the price a TV would have been nice.

Stopped here several times for an overnight van stop while travelling the Stuart Highway. Choice of powered or unpowered sites (use your own water) on a first come basis. Facilities are clean and there is a nice bar and comfortable lounge and dining area (log fire in colder months) for the weary traveller.

Stopped off for a reasonable nights accommodation but was very disappointed! Rooms had a bad Oder and were not up to scratch. Fridge had a big water leak, had to keep the toilet lid closed, the SMOKE ALARM had NO battery in it and lights had no covers. Looked forward to a nice meal at least, ordered and payed then... More

I was on my way from Sydney to Darwin driving a truck. I was booked into this accommodation, and although the restaurant was pleasant and the food goo, the accommodation left a lotto be desired. The room consisted of two single beds, which although clean-ish, were very old and not up to standard. One of the bed had a smaller... More

We stayed at Glendambo when our children were younger but now as retirees we were too tired to go on. We had heard bad reviews on social media and wondered what the truth was. We booked in and the welcome was friendly and relaxed. We booked a queen room. The exterior looked inviting. The room was clean and neat, curtain... More
