We were here 6 years ago and thought we would call in for a cold beverage. It's changed a lot atmosphere is run down and drink prices over inflated our friends had a pint of beer each at the cost of $24 for 2. Cider in the bottle was a bit more realistic at $6.60.

We stayed 2 nights in a motel unit, the room was quite large with queen bed and a good sized modern TV. It had a good split system A/C which was quiet and well appreciated. Jug, toaster, MW and fridge were provided. A small table and chairs would have been an asset, as we had to sit on the bed... More

Spent the afternoon here with some locals putting some bets on the TAB. Drinks a little expensive but staff very friendly. Food was great. Had the t bone special. Was recommend to come here by the caravan park. Can't say about accommodation but looks good from the outside.

I would recommend this place especially after having to walk away from a place we had booked months earlier. Basic comfortable rooms good bar area good cold draught beer and quality meals. Rate this as exceptional value. Great after our earlier experience elsewhere.

We chose this place for its convenience. So pleased that we did. Against some of the reports here, I chose the beef with Guiness pie, my hubby had a boab burger. As an entree we had the lemon squid. Superb, so tender, served with a lovely fresh salad. My pie was incredible, beautiful flavour and the meat was so tender.... More

When traveling in this part of WA there are limited options of where to stop for a night. The Boab Inn, was fine for a one-night stop over. The staff were friendly and the check in / out process simple. The room was small, clean and very basic, with no extras. There was substantial noise of what appeared to be... More

Went there with friends recently. Lunch was typical pub meal and priced accordingly. Room for improvement compared to last year. Wouldn't say no to going there again but will wait for feedback in due course.

On a recent trip to Derby we were fortunate to stay at the Boab Inn. Don't know if all the rooms have been renovated but the double we were inn was beautifully renovated and presented. Cost was reasonable compared to all the others. By the way, the pool was really neat! Recommend it!
