Having stayed at Mount Isa before, we were expecting a basic overnight stay. We were impressed by everything here. The room was well equipped for an overnight stay, the bar and restaurant were good, but we were really impressed by the girl who was on reception, behind the bar and served the food. She worked extremely hard and was so...

Room was well equipped albeit without microwave oven for those with special dietary needs. Room was spacious. Staff was friendly. On the downside, several pieces of mortar between bricks were missing permitting noise from, and "viewing" into the next room if you so desired. Large hole in ceiling with what appeared to be rodent droppings present around it. Ample undercover...

This was adequate basic accommodation. The motel had just been taken over by new owners, so there seemed to be a few teething issues – however the owners were pleasant and helpful and quickly helped with positive attitudes. We ate in the restaurant one night and received excellent and affordable meals. There are cracks in the walls filled with tissue...

It was wonderful to get such a warm welcome after our long journey. The room was equipped with 3 beds, so it was quite large. A second chair would have been rather handy. The patio is only small and it needs to be cleaned. So we didn't use it at all. The food at the Restaurant was delicious. You got...

Stayed here before and service was always good. Had electricity issues when we first arrived, but it was sorted quickly. Was very quiet at Christmas time so felt like we had the whole place to ourselves.

Stayed here twice in the last 2 months and wouldn't stay anywhere else in the Isa. Lovely and clean with well appointed rooms and a great restaurant. The staff were awesome and the food was top notch.

Lots of pluses here. Not just convenient, clean, and comfortable. Melissa is the consummate hostess as she makes sure we had early breakfasts and Sunday dinner. We could even pre-order dinner and have it ready at a set hour! I certainly was not expecting the quality of food at an outback restaurant, but I'm not surprised to read that there...

I have stayed at this motel a few times now and will be returning in the new year. I liked the fact the room had a rear private courtyard and there was plenty of undercover paved parking for my car and trailer. The trades with noisy vehicles park away from the rooms in a safe area so not to disturb...
