“An absolutely first class choice for Broken Hill”
Reviewed 26 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We spent four days in fascinating Broken Hill at the beginning of a five week trek through the Outback areas of Australia. We chose this property despite there being a myriad of motels in Broken Hill, because we wanted to live in a Miners Cottage with its atmospheric space and rooms. This particular cottage is within very easy reach by foot of Argent Street, the main street. It is cute in the extreme, without being twee at all, and supplies everything even the most critical guest could think of. Two double bedrooms at the front of the house sleep four (plus a baby in a cot if needed) and the bedding and mattress are great. A slight problem is that the windows need blackout curtains instead of blinds as the property opposite has a flashing neon light which, in the pitch dark of a Broken Hill night, can become irritating. The lounge and dining rooms with their wooden floors and incredibly comfy lounge are terrific as is the kitchen. The bathroom/toilet needs a wall or ceiling heater of some sort as the draught from outside make the experience of miners' days only too real in the middle of winter. A small back yard, free laundry with supplied detergent and the ability to bring your car securely within the property completes the picture. Free wifi was an appreciated extra. It is also pet friendly which seemed a friendly addition. It is also pram and wheel chair friendly. This is a first class stay and anything negative I mention is nit picking. A wonderful stay in a remarkable town where there is so much to do and enjoy. Well done to the owners of this property - we will return.

Thank you for your great review of Emaroo Oxide and glad you enjoyed your stay there.
We have been in touch with the Auto Car Accessory shop across the road about their neon lights flashing all night and they are going to put the lights on a timer now so that they go off in the evening which will hopefully fix the problem of the light coming in. Thank you for bringing that to my attention and hopefully now guests will have a good night sleep.
We have also put something under the door in the bathroom to stop the breeze coming through so that should help as well.
I'm glad you chose our cottage rather than a motel as I think it is much more homely and you have your separate dining and kitchen areas and also an enclosed yard where you can sit out and have a BBQ or a quiet drink after a day of exploring the area.
Emaroo Oxide is very handy and central to everything which is a bonus as you can walk to the shops, restaurants or the pub just down the street.
Once again thank you for sharing your thoughts about Emaroo Oxide and hopefully we will see you back in Broken Hill some time in the future.
