I had the pleasure of staying two nights at this property. My room was spacious and very clean and comfortable. The bed was fantastic as was the hot showers on both very cold mornings. The staff were a delight and offered great service. Breakfast and room service were also of a high standard. I will look forward to staying again... More

We all know what small regional centers offer in terms of accommodation- usually dated decor, and limited meal (if any) options and often a musty smelling room Well my experience of the John Pirie Motor Inn was quite the opposite. The room was large, very clean, quite modern and well appointed. It smelt nice and had a nice mini bar... More

Our little family trip was made perfect by staying here. The executive rooms were outstanding. Fabulous bed. Great little mini bar and evening meals faultless. Extremely quiet overnight and everything very clean in good working order. The room was entirely in great order.

I have stayed several times over the past 3 years both business and personal and have found it great value, clean and quiet and well situated. The restaurant is excellent with great food and fair prices, and the service is great.

John Pirie Motor Inn is a good place to stay in Port Pirie. It has friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms & fluffy white towels. We have stayed many times and didn't consider anywhere else. It was well priced for a family stay. Make sure you visit Megs book store & Caputos seafood outlet along the main st.

Thank you for your review. Great to hear about Port Pirie's other fantastic businesses. It's a great place to explore with its architecture and river port at the base of the Southern Flinders Ranges. Hope to see you again soon. Sincerely, Andrew Spier. More
