As we walked into our room in the original building our 5 year old daughter kept saying how grand it looked! Great use of space in a big square room, fitting in a kitchenette corner, king bed and two singles. We were on a road trip from Brisbane to Adelaide then back via Victoria and it was the most comfortable...

On approach the lodge and attached motel rooms give a good impression, however most of the motel rooms are in a detached row made of concrete blocks. Old, tired, disappointing. Rotting door frame, cracked tiles in bathroom, and to top it off two big cockroaches running across the carpet! Space is very small.

I am a little perplexed as to your review. If the room was such a concern to you why did you stay for three nights and why did you not come and speak to us so that we could have assisted you with your concerns? Booking through online travel agents has it limitations, we always recommend guest with specific requirements...

Big old fashioned bed to curl up with a book. Friendly staff ,hot breakfast and a good cup of tea , makes for one contented traveler. The only complaint was that the bath room was very small. Quite location and too hard to find.

The motel is ideally situated just a few blocks walk from pubs, clubs and restaurants. First impressions for the traveller are that this is not your typical concrete box motel. On arrival you see a heritage building and grounds, with more traditional motel rooms at the rear of the property.The owners are welcoming and happy to answer any questions re...

Thank you for your review. As you pointed out Broken Hill is a historic town and buildings here come with a lot of history. Our rooms varies in terms of what they have to offer and how they are built. We always encourage people to have a look at what we have to offer prior to making their booking.

The Lodge Outback is not the Taj Mahal so a rating of 5 stars must be set against other motels in the same price range. It had been a gracious old home (1908) converted to a motel in the 1960s so it has a variety of rooms including some 10 conventional motel units and units in the old house. Some...

We loved this motel. It was walking distance to the main street and so nice to not have to get the car out after a long drive. We had a spa room, which was very comfortable. It is not as large as a spa room in a modern, purpose built facility, but it was more than adequate. It had everything...

I stayed in a spa room and it was delightful. The hotel is within easy walking distance of the main street but in a very quiet location. Only minutes from several nice hotel bars including the iconic Palace Hotel (where much of Priscilla was filmed). Strongly recommended.

We had a family room in the old house which had lovely old features - high ceilings, old light switches, ornate walls etc. Friendly staff and a not-too-far walk to town. Ample parking. The smaller motel rooms look like they might not have as much character....
