Stayed here twice enroute to and from Alice Springs. Our group had 2 rooms and on both occasions they were clean, spacious and entirely suitable for purpose. The manageress was very helpful about our requirements, and it was a pleasure to stay here.

Rooms better than many in Mount Isa. Quite a distance from town centre. Need a car if staying here. Staff not welcoming and very abrupt. Actually felt as though we were an inconvenience to the receptionist by being there. Would not stay again.
