“Meh - just okay”
Reviewed 18 July 2010

Stayed at this property for one night and that was fine for us. The apartment was adequate but certainly not spacious or luxurious. We brought in a pizza and bottle of wine for dinner since there's not much selection in the area. Most of the evening, our air unit pulled in the wonderful (NOT) smoke from a couple grilling right outside our unit. Then, at around 11pm (we had already gone to sleep), our smoke alarm went off ... OMG ... it took us over 1/2 an hour to get it off. I went out front of our unit ... the front office gal came up to me and said "were you smoking in the unit?" Um, neither my husband nor I smoke ... she said the smoke alarms are really sensitive. I presume it picked up smoke from outside the unit. Whatever ...

Also, as other posters have said, the internet cost is ridiculous!

There's not much to Port Augusta and I would not go back.

I stayed at the Majestic Oasis Apartments in a deluxe suite for 3 nights. The room was clean and well appointed - all the apartments are in a very secure compound with high barbed wire fences and electronic gates. The apartments face a busy and noisy road, though a huge police presence tries to keep the louts under control.
Regretfully a "couldn't care less" attitude prevails with the staff who take their lead from the day management. When I asked for a longer internet cable (the supplied cable meant my laptop could only be placed on the floor!) reception said "we don't have one, take it or leave it, it's up to you." And get this, the internet was 55 cents a minute! Do the maths on that! (And extra per meg once over a minimal download limit!) Disappointing for such an expensive apartment.
They do not have a restaurant, so it's fend for yourself. You could find a cafe in town for breakfast, and a hotel (pub type meals) for your evening meal. No nice restaurants. Be careful at night. There is a convenient supermarket a few hundred meters away.
A problem with my account was comical, with the receptionist going back and forth between me and the day manager who was watching from the other side of a one way mirror, but wouldn't\t come out! No, don't stay here! Pity, it has potential with better management.

A "gated" property, which was surprising. The front staff were very personable and helpful and a good first impression. The rooms were small, but contained almost everything we needed including a washer and dryer (no oven, though). The location was right on the water, close to everything. The only real negative was the broadband was not wireless and was overpriced - $24/day, so we had coffee at MacDonald's and checked our emails there. The best part was the staff, both when we checked in and checked out. A good jumping off point to sightsee in the area.

Great clean beautiful rooms, massive shower, everything you need included. Awesome to have a washing machine, especially after traveling the nullabor!
I wouldn't recommend buying the breakfast (you buy the provisions and cook it yourself) you could buy breakfast 4 times over if you get the ingredients from the supermarket!
The staff were very friendly, although there is one that we were sure was a robot!
Would highly recommend this place to anyone and will definately stay there again!

My mother and I were passing through on the way to Andamooka and stayed at the Majestic Oasis Apartments for one night. I thought the price was very reasonable.

The room was fresh, clean, modern and very pleasant. The whole complex was very attractive and there was high security.

Located right near the shops - supermarket, variety superstore, shops and services, cafes, main street with beautiful old buildings and the library where we used the free internet.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this accommodation.

We just stayed here for one night after travelling round the outback for the previous 5 nights and it was wonderful to have lovely white cotton sheets and modern decor - I slept really well. We had a studio room which was fine for one night, though a one-bedroom unit might be better for longer stays. The kitchenette was a little cramped as everything - kettle, toaster, electric frying pan, iron (all supplied) had to be plugged into the power points over the draining board. The only sockets reachable from the large table had the TV and DVD player plugged into them.

There is a terrace outside the room but only one chair and no table. The studio room had a combination oven but no hob. There is a supermarket directly opposite

The hotel is surrounded by a fence and has security gates so I don't know if that means it is a high crime area, but we didn't see any trouble, and enjoyed an evening walk along the foreshore and round the town, following the historic trail, with information boards.

We stayed at the Oasis over the Australia Day Long Weekend.
The room was great, view great, pool great, staff great.
We were able to have the doors open and had no trouble from rowdy locals, in fact everyone was happy and polite.
No buzzing electrics to keep us from sleeping. Internet access is capped at $28.00 for a 24 hour period. We also found there to be enough tv channels, but we didn't go to watch the tv!
Plenty to do and see in the town, suggest visit to the Wadlata Outback Centre on Flinders Tce, very informative and helpful staff if you are staying around the town or heading out into any part of the outback or Flinders Ranges. Wish we had the time to stay longer and we will definately return soon to stay again at the Oasis. We found this Motel suitable for our family (we have a teen and a baby) and would definately recommend it to anyone.
