“One night stay not so flash”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

This motel is budget rated but I have had many budget motels that beat this one hands down and at a much lower cost. At a pension rate of $90 it only had 1 glass to share between the 2 of us, no shampoo or conditioner, no tissues and no hairdryer. All these have been standard in many budget motels. This one is outdated, poor old showering facility, and the condition of the vanity is very poor. I think this one is overpriced, have had a lot better for $80. Even a hotel room in Whyalla at $60 was better than this one.

Room Tip: I have not tried the pool as it is winter, nor have I tried the Restaurant, only rating the motel ro...

Rooms are very old. Insects in my bathroom, pricey, poor internet connection, brick walls from the inside. Even for Port Pirie standards this is pushing it. I actually went to another place after checking in here. I'm ok with a simple hotel but this was just terrible. The attached picture says enough I presume.

We stayed for one night in a queen room it was a long weekend so I think the price was inflated $110 at least I hope so it wasn't worth nearly that much. I think it was probably decorated in the eighties. The curtains looked like bad eighties bridesmaid dresses. The air conditioner took me a little while to switch on with the cover broken and full of fluff and once running it sounded like a truck in the room. We won't stay there again.

The motel is basic but clean and comfortable. The standard room is a good size with a comfotable bed. Ask for a room away from the main road as there is early morning noise from the truck traffic. The price of this hotel equated to value for money. Ideal for an overnight stay.
