Perhaps it is because I have had it rough (accommodation wise) the past two days, or perhaps this really is a goldmine for accommodation in a small town environment. Its presentation and layout are excellent. Upon arriving a little early, this was of no bother to the receptionist who provided a very quick and efficient check in service. Perhaps the... More

When is deluxe not deluxe? Probably in Tennant Creek. Given the name and the extra cost, it would be expected that a deluxe room would be a touch above the average. Not so. While the room was large, quite clean with good shower and so on, it lacked some features one would have expected. Lots of space but no table,... More

This motel is probably the best of what is available. With a few small improvements it could rate from 'average' to 'very good.' We stayed in a deluxe room. Very spacious, comfy bed, tv and storage. One thing i couldn't figure out is why there was only one bedside table - there is ample room either side of the queen... More

The motel is a couple of blocks from the main shops. Our room was at the back of the site and was quite spacious. Overall, a couple of cleanliness issues affected our overnight stay. The spare blanket was filthy, we could not put it on the bed. The bathroom floor looked very grubby. The room itself was quiet from highway... More

We paid a few dollars extra for the deluxe room. I am pleased we did. The room was very, very large with lots of space to move around. Older style but very comfortable. The overhead lighting was dreadful - one could not read. No proper bedside lamps - just an old desk light that was hot too touch. Loved the... More

We overnighted in a standard room at the Bluestone. The room was adequate for our needs, but fairly basic. However it was quiet, very clean and the bed was comfortable. There was plenty of wide parking in front of the unit, which was great. The rooms and cars are not visible from the street.

We arrived in Tennant Creek early so were able to see the tourist highlights prior to checking in. Our room was clean and in a quiet location out of the main town centre. The outdoor covered BBQ area was a great place to spend time catching the occasional breeze. The only downside was the very small TV and tiny bar... More

De Luxe rooms are spacious and comfortable.Bathroom a little basic. However nice not to have to go out again to eat after a long drive. Annas Restaurant on site quite adequate and reasonable bottle of wine to accompany. I would recommend this motel for this location

Stayed at the hotel on the way through Tennant Creek, booked rooms for us and the other couple with us. Large rooms, but facilities not what I expected after being refurbed.
