4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Was passing through, too early to stop at Broken Hill and I would not make Port Augusta , so Peterborough it was. I was a bit surprised at the size of the motel but what is the difference one room is one room. Nice and clean and tidy. Only two complaints, as four wheel drives get bigger these days the... More

More reasonable than the usual motel & a heck of a lot more charm. Finally, someone abandoned the usual grim brown colour scheme! Thank you for a little imagination & a lighter touch! Adequate size, clean, tidy and quite sweet. Rick is a gentleman.

When we arrived at the motel later in the day on a Sunday, we were welcomed by a very nice lady, who thought the mafia were coming when she saw our 3 guys all getting out the van that we were travelling in. The ladies who were care taking the motel were very friendly. The rooms were very comfortable. We... More

Whilst the room was clean and welcoming, the coldness of the room and the noisy air conditioner really made sleeping unpleasant . The coldness coming from the floor was quite noticeable, However being so cold made for an early night to bed.

The motel is off the main street and is away from the through traffic. The rooms are clean and well equiped. A 'kitchen' is located near the pool with microwave etc. Plenty of takeaways nearby. Highly recommended.

Rick, our host, ensured that we had everything we needed to make our time in Peterborough stress free. From booking our room, to the kitchen by the pool where we had our meals, it was a relaxing experience. A pleasure to stay, we will return.

Good motel for an overnight stay, just off the main street, plenty of choices for a meal. Nice owner, rooms are clean but not many of them. Parking a little tight as is usually the case. Close to the railway station and an easy drive to "Steamtown" museum (well worth a visit).

I booked this motel on the run yesterday from Cooper Pedy and just wanted a place to crash on the way to Victoria. I could not believe how beautiful the town was and how friendly the owner Rick was. Nothing was too much trouble and gave me a good run down on the local area. The room was homely with... More

Peterborough is really an overnight destination. The Peterborough Motel is a very good Budget motel. The room we had was large, with a decent fridge, comfy beds, a table and chairs. The bathroom was a decent size with an acceptable shower. There was parking directly outside as well as a table and chairs. The clean swimming pool was too cold... More

Great little Motel. Clean comfortable rooms at reasonable rates. Rick is most obliging and could not do enough to help us including some great advice on where to go and places to see. Stayed three different nights before, after and as part of the 2016 Tenere Tragics River to Ranges Run and would stay again.
