Reception staff are friendly, rooms are average, food was overpriced and mediocre, food service perfunctory. The motel is a very long way from any other restaurants so you have to eat there, wasn't a big meal so we asked for dessert, told they had run out of dessert. We asked for snacks to take back to our room and were told they were out of them, gave us two little generic things of Arnotts biscuits .. all broken! Went to the bar, peeled the waitress away from her boyfriend and asked for chips or something, told they had run out. !!! Had booked in to return thru Adelaide 8 days later, on arrival same excuse, no snacks - sorry .. we've run out, had to walk 2k to the local servo to buy biscuits so we could have a cup of tea and a snack, after driving 500k to get there, that finished it for us. Room had one of those humming / rattling air con units which we had to turn off so as to sleep - Pool was out of order. Breakfast is pathetic, delivered to room the night before, 2 slices bread in glad wrap, a toaster, mini containers of fruit pieces, long life milk, no way to start the day if your traveling. By contrast we stayed in an identically priced family run Motel in Coober Pedy a few nights before, friendly, helpful, generous, comfortable, loved it, Aviators Lodge made us feel that we were only there to pay their rent. We were told by a taxi driver that there's a better Comfort Inn 5 mins away, closer to restaurants etc. Next time we stay there.
