A great place to start a tour of the Kimberley area of Western Australia. Great accommodation and excellent food and friendly staff. Although Derby is only a small town, the attention to detail by the Spinifex Hotel exceeded our expectations.

We stayed here on Broome Cup Weekend on our way home from a four week Kimberley trip. Lovely large rooms with a washing machine. You need to be a rocket scientist to work out the washer machine/ dryer though. I gave up and used the balcony and the aircon output to dry our clothes. Outside temp was mid 30s anyway.... More

Large, clean rooms with a good washing maschine. The hotel also offers a secured parking area. A real disappointment is the Internet/wlan they offer. The speed was beteeen 0.05 to 0.1 Mbits/s which is so slow, that you can't even read your emails. The is a nice italien restaurant across the street.

This place is a corporate stain in a cool town with heart. No music on a Thursday has killed this place. The medium rare scotch fillet was wobbly to touch and partly uncooked. The chef hadn't seared the thing thus it was a mess. Why can't people cook steak in the Kimberley? Certainly not for a shortage of beef. Back... More

We spent a week in Derby, surprised to see a local like the Spinifex, called in to have a beer and was not surprised to find the inflated WA prices still alive and well, the old pub was knocked over in 2012 and the current pub is the result, not what you expect in the Kimberley, upon inspection the dinner...

Stayed a night here going around the Kimberleys. Completely new buildings in a simple outback style with kitchenette and washing machine. Comfortable rather than luxurious. Food is pub style with good servings and OK quality. The only decent place in town. Built from fly in fly out miners that will not be there now the ming boom is finished.

Fantastic hotel - loved the accommodation blocks - using corrugated iron cladding. The room was more than comfortable - and a washer / dryer was included in the bathroom. Just one small thing - I couldn't get the dryer part to work. Bar and restaurants were well styled and the food was delicious.

Visited Derby for Derby Cup and stayed overnight. Hotel was very busy but rooms were lovely bed comfy and the food served in the restaurant was very good - would highly recommend should you ever find yourself in Derby! We were very surprised to find this standard of accommodation after the long drive - we were driving to Fitzroy Crossing... More

Derby is a small town in the Kimberley region, increasingly relying on the tourist industry as mining activity slows and cattle exports fluctuate. We stayed here the first night into a 15-day higher-cost bus trip around the region. The rooms including bathrooms are very comfortable and quiet, with high-standard beds, fittings, and air conditioning. The dining room provided a very... More
