Comfort Inn Crystal
Ranked #8 of 17 Hotels in Broken Hill
Reviewed 13 December 2013

Have stayed at the Comfort Inn Crystal approx. eight times over the past few years for work and when passing through on holidays. I have found the superior rooms have more room and seem to be updated as from the basic rooms These rooms are always clean. I never have any trouble sleeping and the staff are extremely friendly. The breakfast is reasonably priced as well. The motel is well placed for the short walk to the main street and a couple of clubs as well as being opposite the railway station. I have no hesitation in recommending this place to stay overnight or longer.

My sister and I recently stayed four nights at the Comfort Crystal Motel in Broken Hill, visiting for a family reunion.
The motel is old, has no cross ventilation, no electric blankets, nowhere to put your toiletries in the bathroom, and the room we occupied was generally uninviting. A cold snap necessitated the use of the noisy, and inefficient air conditioner. Hair dryers are kept at the Reception desk, so a trek over there is necessary if you have the need of one, as it is if you need an iron. While a laundry is provided for the use of guests, there are no irons in the room. Mini bar contents took over most of the fridge space.
We had prebooked and paid for our stay otherwise we would have moved out after the first night. My sister lives in the north of Australia so she was particularly uncomfortably cold so we bought a hot water bottle just for the stay.
On the plus side the staff are marvellous, so helpful, and provided us with a hair dryer, iron and board which we kept in our room for the duration.
We were dismayed that most of our extended family were staying at other places in Broken Hill for a lot less money and getting much better value.

We stay here with a party of 3 adults & 2 children in a spacious family room. The staff were most accommodating & the Motel was easy to find & within walking distance to the main shopping area.
The only faults that we could find were that there was only one power point (on the bench) & that the inter net wouldn't work. My husband has a pump for sleeping & we had to get an extension cord to run to the bed to plug it in. With the inter net the lady at reception did try her best to get it working for us but to no avail.
All in all we had a great nights sleep. Thank you.

I found the rooms recently decorated and it is not huge 42 rooms. The staff were excellent and friendly. It is just 2mins walk from Broken Hill railway station. The only thing is yes-it is a little dated and the bathrooms had no area for personal items around washbasin .i.e no vanity area. It has an asian restaurant on site and is a 2 min walk from the Musicians club. It is a member of the Choice hotel chain worldwide and can be trusted as per their guarantee. Broken Hill is served by a daily coach/rail service and a weekly Countrylink service to Sydney and the scenery is awesome.- the real outback.The Indian Pacific also transits on the route from Sydney to Perth

This a large motel property that has not been renovated for many years. Whilst the rooms were clean and the staff friendly enough, the overall ambience of the place is depressing.
I believe that the occupancy rate in Broken Hill is quite high so there is little incentive to upgrade properties such as this.
I would suggest that if you are contemplating a trip to "The Hill" to book elsewhere well in advance. There are many properties in town in much better condition and for about the same sort of money.
Breakfast was served to the room and was acceptable.
Above all don't book a front room. It is opposite the train station and there was a locomotive idling its engine from 4am.

Room Tip: Don't book a front room
