Recently stayed here. The motel or cabin accommodation was basic but clean. The hotel was well run and the staff very friendly. The out door area of the hotel was well set up. The pool was clean and a great place to relax and read a book. The pub meal was great. It also has room for caravans . With... More

The pub presents well from the outside and the restaurant and gardens are nice. However, the caravan park lets it down. The sites are not well defined and we found some caravans had encroached onto neighboring sites, making it to tight a squeeze for the second caravan. We elected to use a non-powered site even though we had paid for... More

Hi Travelwriter, yes, you're right we could do with a lot more room. It doesn't make any sense when you think of where we're located it should be easy to access more land but no, it is nigh on impossible. Sorry about the showers they're usually scrubbed, cleaned and checked every day so I'll follow that up. Thanks again and... More

Gorgeous outdoor setting/ garden around the pool. Plenty of shade and tables to accommodate many. The pool table was fun, although a little cramped. Staff were super friendly and hospitable. The rooms were very basic and I feel a little over priced however the menu and the chef made up for that with delicious meals provided. Only a 5 min... More

Caravan park is behind the park and not very big. Grounds are clean and neat with a 'first in, first served' parking system. Wifi is VERY limited to the front bar or beer garden. NO phone reception but a public landline phone is available. Beer garden and pool is modern, neat and inviting. Amenities are in a portable building and... More

Hi Lyn, thank you for going out of your way to review us. We're sorry the park isn't bigger but not much we can do about that unfortunately.

Knockout beer garden oasis with good food and a cold beer. Great overnight stop too. Better to stay here and visit the Devils Marbles rock formations up the road during the day when all the caravans move on and before the next mon arrive. WELL DONE management!!

Hello Sue, and thank you for your wonderful review. It certainly does get a bit hectic down there at the Marbles so we reckon your strategy is the go. We hope it's not too long before you can come and visit us again. Thanks again from all of us and safe travels. More

We stopped here on our way to Darwin as somewhere to stay close to the Devil's Marbles. Our initial plan was to stay in Barrow creek but after checking out the reviews we decided to keep looking.

Thank you Lou for your wonderful review. Yes, we're sorry about the confusion with the name change. If you can believe it the old name caused even more confusion. You're right about the front too.. it doesn't really reflect what's on the other side of the fence. The external appearance just happens to be our next project so hopefully if... More

We stayed here on the way to do the Oodnadatta Track and we stayed here on the way home as we loved it so much.

Hi Robyn, yes it was a frightening experience all right. Apparently the family were relocating from Qld to start a new life (he had done time as it turned out).

On our trip to Darwin from down south booked a cabin and decided to stay extra night 18/19 June! Really impressed with everything about this hotel/campground. Cabin was clean,fresh and comfortable.
