Stayed here midway through a 5 week trip from south coast along great ocean rd, through Adelaide, up the middle of Oz......night before here was Alice Springs, night after Cloncurry. The food here was great, excellent steak, fantastic prices, cold beer and polite friendly service. We parked our caravan out the back under the trees, the kids loved the pool,... More

Stayed here for work for a couple of nights. It is very clean and the rooms are lovely! The food is also delicious with great coffee too! The staff and owner are very helpful and welcoming! Make sure to book though as it appears to be very popular!

Everyone told me that this was the place to stay on the road from Darwin. Unfortunately we didn't make it for the night but ensured that we did for lunch. The staff were friendly and helpful and the menu offered everything we could want. But the atmosphere was what sets it apart from every other fuel stop out here. Clean... More

Reception was quick & easy. The only way to book is via phone. We had a Motel room which was clean with double & single beds, AC, fridge, TV. The pool was great after a long day traveling. It was good to see how green the place was after recent rains. Happy hour is 4 to 5pm and dinner from... More

Horrendous and arrogant service - over priced Will never stay or recommend this place. We love travelling through this part of the country, but now find no reason to stop at this inhospitable place, should've known better - even the trickiest don't stop here anymore.

This place is a little gem! Busy little hub. Picked up a little in terms of shop from when we were here last time. Appears to be a small team but they do a good job. Could only get a standard hotel room booked a week out from travel. Single room with a bathroom. Queen + one single. $155. Being... More

These guys should be very proud, they keep a neat and tidy Establishment, the room we stayed in was exactly what you need after a long day traveling, comfortable, clean, good aircon and hot shower. The bistro was great also, happy hour at 4:00 and the family all had great meals, including theburger, steak and chicken burger were all great.... More

As this is accommodation in the middle of nowhere they seem to capitalise on this fact with their rates. $140 for one person in a cabin or motel room. The cabin was nice, had nothing in the way of utensils or crockery despite the fact a oven is supplied. I had to keep adjusting the aerial on the TV to... More

Overnight stay with a camper trailer in a powered site. $35 for 2 adults an $5 each for the kids. This place is remote and has to generate all of its own electricity so you have to take that into consideration when judging any pricing. Presentation was immaculate, the owners really keep this place neat. The camp grounds and amenities... More

My partner & I called to book a cabin on our way from Darwin. However there had been a mix up with the available rooms & since the phone reception is so bad on the Stuart Hwy we did not receive the message until we got there. But when we were told of this when we arrived the excellent staff... More
