Here for 2 nights, 1 at the beginning of the week, then another towards the end as in the area for work. Problem started from the beginning, made accommodation bookings weeks ago, went to check in & nothing was on the system. After calling a manager in & 15 minutes later we had FINALLY been given rooms. On our second...

Unfortunately we have no choice but to stop at places like this on the Stuart Highway! There toilets are filthy and a health hazard each time we stop, not just a one off! Coffee disgusting! Picnic tables on the grass broken and lacking seats. Shame, they have enough business so no excuse!

It was my second (and third) stay here - once for one night and again the next week for two nights. Still very average - if I could stay somewhere else I would, though it's the only option (I was working in the area). Some of the rooms have been done up a bit and those are ok, but often...

The rooms are large but when we went in the floor was covered in bugs, otherwise the bathroom was clean, the room big enough for 3 adults. Comfortable enough for an overnight stop. It has been awhile since I stayed there and not much has changed.

Amazing spot. We loved it. Very peaceful. Dog friendly. Was amazing to just sit back and relax. Good shop large with variety. There is a bar but we didnt go in. Looks nice though. Awesome spot in the middle of nowhere. Would stop there again.

Roadhouse romantic for $180. Backrooms next to the toilet block where impacted by the odour, so we asked for a front room. Renovated. Roomy. Recommended. Return visit? Most likely if the opportunity arises.

The room for $180 was unexpectedly roomy and recently renovated. Huge flat screen TV, separate toilet and bathroom made for a pleasant stay. Ill stay there again if the opportunity arises. Rooms come in varpus sizes and prices. The front rooms all appear to be recently renovated.

Stayed here overnight on our way to Alice, cheap clean accommodation. Had meals that were reasonable (the outback grill should state what is in it) Games room to keep the kids entertained while you enjoy a cold beer in the bar during happy hour :)

We stopped here for a welcome overnight stay on the way to Uluru. The room was comfortable and the shower was great. You need to drink bottled water here, they supplied us with a large bottle. We had takeaway hamburgers which were great. Overall this is a good stopover in a remote location, I would stay here again.

We've stayed here twice now, once in the rooms and once in the unpowered campground. The campground gets very busy so try to arrive early. No set spots in the unpowered area, so people just make their own spots so gets hard to try and fit yourself in between people (especially with a camper trailer!). In saying that, it's only...
