This is the best motel we have stayed in on extensive trips within Australia over the last decade.
It is 'over the bridge' from the main town centre. at the junction of the Eyre and Stuart Highways - an iconic location. Further pluses are the lay out of the complex and the presence of a 18 hole golf course.
We took a budget room at the end of a long days trip. It was surprisingly large and well equipped and possessing good quality furniture. It had an excellent bathroom. It had good small domestic equipment in the room including micro wave, large fridge (a must in the heat) and drinks facility. The aircon was quiet and excellent as well. It was very reasonable priced.
It had a rather good restaurant which specialized in Indian food - and although this is not to my personal liking there was alternative enough choice on the menu for us. The cooking was excellent and all in all better than many higher starred hotels. The restaurant is upmarket and priced accordingly.
We can't wait to return and perhaps spend a few days here.
