Ningaloo Lodge
Ranked #5 of 6 Hotels in Exmouth
Reviewed 4 February 2008

Booked through Discover West. Arrived, called for airport pick up as previously arranged but.....no! Apparently there was no booking and no lift available. Called Discover West who sloped all responsibility. After eventually catching a lift, I found the accommodation very poor, dirty & smelly. Reception were unhelpful (stubborn). I later found much better places to stay in Exmouth. On return from my trip, when I discovered I'd paid for this grotty accommodation twice, Discover West failed to accept any responsibility or offer refund as they said the fault was with Ningaloo Lodge (initially said it was my fault!). Ningaloo Lodge said the blame was with Discover West. Overall, avoid Discover West (they are useless when things go wrong - which they will if you use them) and find a better motel. Good luck!

Do not be fooled by the "reasonable prices" there are better places to stay in Exmouth at the same / close reasonable rates.

As part of my work, I regularly spend time in Fly In / Fly Out mining camps, and, on the whole, the accomodation in these camps is better than what I got at this dump.

The rooms are minute - two people cannot live comfortably in them at all. There is only a tiny locker style cupboard so suitcases / bags need to be on the floor - of which there is very little to put them on in the first place. The bathrooms are abyssmal - ours flooded when showering, and speaking to other residents they experienced the same.

Over a 5 day period there was absolutely no cleaning at all, no fresh linen and no fresh towels.

The so called "guest laundry" is a "pay as you use" laundry at $3 per go (cheaper to go to the laundromat in town) and the only drier has the control knob removed so that guests cannot use it.

The swimming pool is not much bigger than a bath - hardly worth getting into.

The worst part of all of this is that the owners show absolutely no interest in being friendly, or caring about their guests. For a business that survives by having guests their customer service leaves much to be desired.

Ningaloo Lodge in Exmouth is a very nice 3 star lodge. The rooms are small but clean and adequate. The real advantage in staying here is the fabulous self caterers kitchen which has everything you could need including free tea and coffee. The pool and BBQ areas are very sociable places for meeting other travellers. It is very close to the centre of Exmouth and within walking distance of all the town's amenities.
