Very friendly and accommodating staff. The food is fantastic can't beat the half price lunch. Fresh homemade garlic bread loaf is the perfect entree. Plenty of cold beers on tap to satisfy anyone. Truely not a place to miss in Hedland. Highly recommend to anyone travelling or looking for a good meal.

The staff are friendly and go above and beyond. The half price lunch menu is great value and fulfilling. The family room has separate bedrooms which is great when the kids need to go to bed and you are not all in the same room. Overall...Easily the best place to stay & eat if you are in the Pilbara.

Had this garlic bread for $9. Sorry, but in my opinion is this not an example of hospitality. There was a buffet for $30 each plate which I didn't take. Further there was not much to choose from. Despite of the location of the restaurant and motel near the highway.

Stayed for three nights for work. Very good rates, prices have come down a lot since the mining boom. They let us stay longer on check out day due to afternoon flights. Meals were good. Rooms are old but clean with new televisions. Don't try looking for an email address though, impossible to find.

I went with a group of Ladies midweek for Dinner. Firstly we tried to order a drink. The Bar person was looking on the shelf for the Champagne we ordered - had to tell her to try the fridge :( Then she didn't really know how to use the till. We tried to pay with a card - so she... More

it was a room. An old tired room. It had a bed. It was reasonably clean. I couldn't get a table for dinner as there was a lot of Christmas parties going on. Has a nice pool. The staff were very friendly. Very close to the airport which is why I would stay again.

My husband wanted to take me to dinner and thought this would be a nice place to go to. Well, it was so noisy that we almost had to shout at each other so that we could hear each other. We ordered our food, and went to the bar to pick it up. My T-bone steak was good, BUT the... More
