“Comfortable and clean outback stopover”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

We recently spent one night here during an outback trip. It was clean and comfortable accommodation, meals were available in house. We dined in and the service was adequate and the food very good. Our one complaint was that the room was really cold...it was winter, and there were no extra blankets available in the room. In fact, it was the only night of our outback trip that we actually felt REALLY cold. Continental breakfast in the dining room was basic but adequate. The car parking was right outside our door, and there was an outdoor sitting area available to use, if we required (too cold when we were there!)

After travelling all day from Queensland we were quite disappointed and slightly concerned when we arrived. We were followed by people from the street, very interested in what we had in our car. The street itself reminded me of Bagdad with its concrete fortifications. The rooms are adequate, but very tired and run down. Security is a concern.

We stayed overnight a part of a touring group. The hexagonal shaped units are quite spacious and were very comfortable. Food was good,, but the facility is beginning to look tired and in need of renovation.

Stayed for 2 nights last month. Friendly reception, no trouble finding room. Room clean but old, needing serious upgrade. Only one chair in the room. Mine has a double bed and a single bed, leaves not much room to move around. Bed is comfortable but piloows needed changing, past its use by date! Place was quite, not much noise from outside. Has a small pool but I did not venture out there. Ate at the restaurant, food was ok but nothing to rave about.

Room Tip: Bring your own coffee cup.

Bluestone is probably the best in Tennant Creek, but.
The room smells of sulphur. cms of dust on fans, grime in bathroom, carpet needs a good clean.
restaurant very good, food, staff and service very good.

Room Tip: ask for the new rooms

We booked one of the better rooms. Deluxe - they called it. It was quite unclean, with a long dark hair, belonging to someone else, in the bed. It was quiet enough to get a good sleep apart from the airconditioning sounding like helicopter blades. I have stayed there many times over the years, and very little refurbishment has happened in that time. The bathroom is very stained; this is explained by a notice on the wall as being due to the water.I was able to chip some off with a fingernail. The place is bordering on a disgrace, and $155 dollaes for the night was a bit rich I thought. We travelled from Alice Springs to Katherine on the way back so as not to repeat the experience

Overall this motel was good. We were travelling with 2 Adults and 2 kids and the room we had was big enough. It was nice to have table and chairs in the room to be able to sit and eat etc, as many motels do not have this. The pool was clean and refreshing. We stayed in a Deluxe room and it was from memory $165, it was also the week of the school holidays in the NT.

Room Tip: Deluxe room a good size for 2 Adults and 2 kids. We were at the back of the establishment.
