A great place to stay. Room was very clean, and the layout left plenty of space. The decor was smart, and the facilities were excellant. We would stay there again without hesitation, and would recomend it to family and friends. No traffic noise could be heard from our room.

Food was over priced. The blue cheese tart was bland. Chicken schnitzel came with very small portions of guacamole and sour cream, and loads of hot chips, which meant it was too dry. Table service tried to be upmarket but it had a casual decor. Strange combination. Desserts were tasty, but again overpriced.

I have stayed here before, but not for a number of years. As before, it was a very comfortable experience. The room and the restaurant were of excellent quality and all the staff were pleasant and helpful.

Friendly staff, huge room, king bed with fabo mattress. Furnishings and curtains very chic. Bathroom spotless. Huge room, didn't feel like a motel room at all. Very quiet area. Will definitely promote.

I needed last minute accomodation on my road trip. I was able to call ahead at 9pm, negotiate a room, pay over the phone, and have the keys left out for my late night arrival - the receptionist was very helpful, and even had the aircon running for me. On arrival, I was surprised by the size of the room...

Thank you for your review. We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay. Our family accommodation all have showers over the bath as do our standard spa rooms. I can only assume that being late in the day, and possibly a week day, that a family room was the only type available. All other accommodation have separate shower stalls....

This is a great place to stay in Port Pirie. The rooms are clean and the bedding comfortable. The shower has great pressure and the bathroom roomy. The room had great air conditioning and the car parks are spacious. The team are friendly and easy going. We only stay here when visiting Port Pirie its quiet and easy to find.

Very clean, comfortable rooms of a good size. We had a family room and we had heaps of space and actually didn't use the additional bedroom in the accommodation as there was already a king sized be and two single beds in the main room. Bright, recently renovated with modern linen. Very friendly staff. Air conditioning on our hottest Christmas...
