A bit loud on a Friday night but given family room away from noise. Friendly helpful staff. Room not fantastic but clean and good for price and location. Food reasonable. Arrived late but was not an issue. Basic continental breakfast included, paid the extra for bacon and eggs and enjoyed them.

Visited this hotel during a very busy time this year and they were well organised and hands on. The pub was full of people but the service was great and you didnt wait more than few minutes to be served. The pub part of the hotel lacks a bit of character but I guess it is who you drink with...

Great and historical country pub. Beer was cold food was good and staff were friendly. Rooms and amentiies were clean and comfortable If i have one minor gripe its that access to wifi would be good, but I guess ya cant have everything in the outback.

As the self-contained cabins were booked out we stayed in a room in the main hotel. It was very basic accommodation with a shared bathroom down the hall. The floor was extremely creaky but it did have a nice balcony overlooking the town and some old-time character. There were few people staying in the hotel rooms so the sharing of... More

We had one night in Marree on our APT tour on the way to Birdsville. It is the only accommodation in the very small town. We stayed in the poolside apartments which are prefabricated stand alone units and are roomy, comfortable and clean. The hotel provides good meals and the hotel walls are covered with interesting historical and other memorabilia.

We arrived in a very soggy Marree with the intention of camping behind the pub before we started our loop of Oodnadatta, Simpson Desert, Birdsville, Marree. As the mud was ankle deep we quickly decided to grab a room at the pub instead. We ended up with a Poolside Villa. It proved to be basic, but clean, warm, dry and... More

Marree is a small town with only one facility: the hotel. It is the central bar, hotel, camphround ans museum. Staff is very friendly, rooms are adequate, but not great. Prices are pretty high, as can be expected in the outback. Food is quite good, taking into account the isolated situation. The hotel even has a pool, though not heated!

Travelled from Coober Pedy to Marree via William Creek and to arrive at the Marree Hotel with the knowledge of a clean bed, hot shower, cold drink and food was heaven!

We stopped here for one night, there was off street parking, we ate here at the pub, the food and service was very good, the staff was helpful and friendly. We had a Cabin in the back section, it was well set up with what we needed. Not a bad spot to stay over night. There is no internet here,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Phil and Marilyn Turner took over the iconic Marree Hotel in late October 2011 and is now barely recognisable as the hotel it was before. With classic outback service and world class hospitality, cold beer on tap, clean and comfortable rooms and a fantastic dinner menu, the Marree Hotel offers much more than you would expect in this remote area. The Marree Hotel is proud to boast 3 dining rooms, a cafe, campground, pool, hot showers, bar, en-suite/air-conditioned rooms, The 'Tom Kruse' / Back of Beyond collection, a stunning Lake Eyre mural, aboriginal art gallery and over 130 years of history. Situated at the branch of the iconic Birdsville and Oodnadatta tracks the hotel dominates the skyline for miles. ... more   less
