For what we paid for three adults, this was OK. We've stayed before, but this time in room 37 at the back. Less traffic noise here. Also this room had a glass shower door - much nicer than the curtain in the room on previous stay. Dark decor exacerbates the dark old feeling in the room. Lighting is low. Good...

Beds are terrible, showers are even worse- the train at midnight continues to wake people up- if all you want is a bed and shower, look elsewhere. Expensive for what is offered and supplied. Never to return. Ever.

Its a very very old place, and for the $115.00 was not worth it. We stayed in cheaper accommodation that was far better. If you are traveling through, drive to the next town. Where can I begin to describe the state of this place. shower was inadequate could not even wash properly. I was willing to put up with the...

Not looking for five star luxury, we stayed here overnight on our way to the Flinders Ranges. A good stop over motel, with easy 24 hour check in, it's clean and comfortable, with all the amenities you need.

This property rates as "3 star accommodation, 5 star service". We had no problem at all with the service but the accommodation was pretty woeful. We did get the last room so maybe it was for overflow? However it was $125.00 which seems average price for motel accomm. in SA and it was by far the worst room we stayed...

You would enjoy getting a quieets night rest here at an ok price. Staff were pleasant and rooms are clean, can't ask for much more in the middle of nowhere (sorry locals). Then enjoy the drive out the next day.

Stayed over on business. This is a country highway motel, slightly aged but, clean, well looked after and very friendly staff. Couldn't ask for more, and I was particularly impressed by the auto checkout. Didn't expect that in Bordertown

This accommodation was very good. It had heating which was an improvement on another accommodation in the area. The price was good and the host was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place to others who needed a comfortable warm bed and a TV to catch up on the news happening in world.

“They charge more for the rooms towards the back, noise level is less but still not good. I would ask to see the room first.”

“If you do stay here ask for a front room. The rooms at the back are next to the train tracks.”

“There are two levels of room fitout - budget and other. The Budget rooms are normally taken by local workers who are in Bordertown for short stays. Make sure you get an upmarket (?) room - better equipped and much further from the road.”
