I have only stayed in 2 places in Weipa, the Albatross on a number of occasions and at this place. Although the restaurant at the Albatross was fairly good the rooms did seem pretty basic and on the recommendation of a work colleague I decided to stay here. Due to the limited options in Weipa I did not read any previous reviews so arrived with no preconceived ideas.
This place is nothing flash but considering the remote location I was more than satisfied. I did not have dinner at the restaurant but it seemed to be doing a good trade with what looked like a lot of locals. I had a hot breakfast which was more than acceptable. I did have a beer in the bar and thought the prices were reasonable as they had imported beers on special for $4.50 - all other beers were $6. They also had bottles of Oyster Bay wine for $25 which is a good price for a bar.
I stayed in the rooms behind reception and from reading other reviews these are the best to stay in. The room is a good size with a flat screen tv, the bed was reasonably comfortable, pillows were bad and the shower was built for midgets. The room also had a microwave oven which you don't get very often. A/c is very noisy being the old rattlers but I was just thankful for some relief from the humidity.
Location wise this is the best in Weipa as it is right next door to Woolworths. We find the lady at reception was friendly alhough she seemed to spend all her time walking around with her cat.
