Stayed here after a week of outback driving with 'outback trailblazers' rally raising money for Angel Flight. Would have paid more than the very reasonable rate to have a good sleep before our 9hour trip home. Very clean and comfortable.

A very nice motel. A friendly welcome. Room spotlessly clean and comfortable. Motel is right on the highway so some noise from large trucks going past. Unusually small wardrobe that is fine for shirts but not high enough for a dress or slacks. Only a small towel rack in bathroom suitable for hand towel only and nowhere to hang bath towels. Otherwise it had all the basics and was quite satisfactory. We ate at their restaurant which had both indoor and outdoor seating. The outdoor verandah was a lovely setting with shrubs & trees surrounding it. We did not have to wait long for our meal which was well cooked and tasty. Vegetables & salad were smorgasbord style. Good value meal.

I have never written a review on here before I but just had to get on and say thank you to the Barcaldine Country Motor Inn. I've stayed in two of the other motels in town but they do not even compare to this one.

The team are wonderful - I've only met them recently and they have felt like friends from the first visit. The service is second to none, the beds are very comfortable, the shower water pressure great and the meals fantastic - there is not a single thing I would change. It's not only the best motel in the west - it's the best motel I've ever stayed in. The complimentary drink waiting for you in the room fridge is a welcomed surprise as well!

They have also recently built some new villas out the back - all brand new, with an amazing pool and BBQ area - a visit in Summer will be great!

If you come to Barcaldine - this is the only place to book (and as you are checking in, have a look at the wall behind the reception desk!)

Room Tip: The new Villa's are my favourite, but the entire establishment is wonderful - you can't go w...

My wife and I had a weekend away and stayed in the new cabins and we were very impressed. They are well appointed and comfortable. All the staff were friendly and helpful. The only drawback was that the cabins didn't have Austar connected but I believe that's coming. I decided to have a swim however the pool was cluttered with leaves but it was winter and only a fool would swim at that time of year.I grabbed the scoop from the pool shed and disaster averted... it was a little chilly! This is a great place to stay in Barky and we'll be back again!

Carolyn and her crew are terrific people and nothing is to much trouble. The meals are great and the whole place compares favourably to any motel, especially on the inland way. Close to town and the bakery for the early starters!

I have stayed at this motel regularly in the last two years. There are a variety of rooms- with almost all now fully renovated. Even the ones that have not been fully updated are nice and comfy. They are all comfortable and well equipped. Caroline and the team are lovely and will accommodate any request if they can. There food is yummy, home cooked well priced and i love the sunday roast. I would not choose to stay anywhere else in the region!
