If you book a dongah room at this stay during the colder months, then be warned. The room has an air conditioner only, and you are given two cotton "blankets" which makes for a very cold, very long night.....so don't even think about heading out there without your doonas and a portable heater! Have never seen such basic bathroom facilities that are so poorly maintained. Don't expect to find a soap dish in the shower recess. They had a good cook at the time that we were there, I have to say, and the casual staff were very friendly, and as helpful as they might be expected to be under very difficult circumstances. It was very obvious to us that this is a business that exists solely to make a profit, with seemingly no understanding on the part of the owners of the basics when it comes to the comfort of their guests.

Room Tip: Take a caravan, rather than book a dongah room, or go in the summer so that you do not freeze to death at night.

But the only place to stay if you wish to visit the Lost City by helicopter

It is an accident waiting to happen, badly in need of maintenance. You migh score a light in the donga room or you might not, it just might be a live connection, and take care when you walk on the verandah the boards buckle as you go. The last reviewer was generous, no stars from me.
Green frogs in the toilets, shower room doors that dont close! I guess you could say it is stepping out of the 1930's so is an experience at that.

We stayed here briefly travelling on the alternative route to Darwin via Cape Crawford. This is a very basic outback roadhouse/pub/cabin setup. The accommodation is very, very basic... just a donga, a door, a bed and a rattly aircon unit. The amenity block is a short walk via a dirt courtyard and I found cane toads inside. It does have a nice pool though.
It is a strange place with many locals constantly turning up to buy their alcohol.
The pub is also very basic, the fridge wasn't working so the drinks were kept cold in an esky.
We did book and confirm an ensuite room, but apparently one of the owners turned up and occupied it so our booking wasn't honoured.
Expect little and you won't be surprised! 2 stars

Room Tip: There are no good rooms
