“Overpriced accommodation, great service though.”
Reviewed 19 April 2013

This hotel has a monopoly along several hundred km of highway and they know it, so they charge like a wounded bull for their rooms. Many of the signs on the property, such as hours of restaurant opening, are incorrect. The room cleaning leaves a bit to be desired, especially cobwebs etc on ceilings. Unacceptable things at the prices charged.
The dinners are freshly cooked and well presented.
The breakfast buffet, stale and cold by 7:30.
The restaurant staff, first class; thorough, friendly and capable service.

I stayed in a motel unit overlooking the pool. It was a nice unit, somewhat different from the usual, and the wonderful lightning storm was a fantastic sight!!
What a shame that when you are in a place in the wet season in the Kimberley that requires an air conditioner and a fan to stay cool, the maintenance program does not ensure that both are in perfect working order! Air conditioner rattles, fan scrapes on its cover - ALL NIGHT
Sad really because this venue is different and in stark contrast to the township just across the river!
I was on a working trip, requiring me to attend a client during the day and write up other reports at night. Don't do it. You will go blind trying to type in the dark at night. Perhaps management should shift offices to one of the rooms for a night - they will be wearing glasses the next morning, and the next afternoon installing more lighting in the rooms!

Room Tip: Motel rooms are good. Good luck with the air conditioning and fans. Don't try to work after da...

Booked this room the day before we arrived - I was advised the room was small but I figured we only needed a bed. What I didn't realise that the room was barely big enough for both of us to stand-up. There was no power-point to boil the jug, the fire alarm was faulty as it went off during the night - these items were reported the next day. But at $155 per night definitely very over-priced. Very disappointed as we have stayed at this accommodation preciously but not in the budget accommodation (2009)

The lodge is a great little place. It's a nice hideaway from the town of fitzroy which can be a bit confrontational. Motel rooms are big and clean, grass is lovely and green and it's peaceful and quiet. Bed is comfy after the travel (stayed there on a work trip, as many ppl do). Pillows could do with bring replaced. Everything was clean, but a funny smell does come through the bathroom in the mornings! My toilet didn't flush also, but staff got onto it. Air con is good. Ate at the pub and it's good pub food, huge serves and really good value for money! I see Some ppl hve said the food and rooms are a bit expensive, but if u r from the Kimberley you are used to these prices and I felt that it was better value for money (for accomodation and food) then derby. I would reccommend everyone to stay here, even in the camping ground! It's safe and lovely, and full of beautiful wallabies!!!

Just stayed one night in the motel room, well equipped, could have been cleaner though. Beautiful location, good pool. Ate in the restaurant, but would eat in the bar next time, as meal was not that special. Expensive, but that's to be expected for where it is. Helpful friendly staff.

I have stayed here on quite a few occasions, both in the motel and in the camp ground. It is by far the best that Fitzroy X has But that said, it is probably the best between Broome and Darwin. Like previous reviewers have said, stay away from the Dongers. If you can't afford the motel accommodation the next best thing is rolling out your swag on the huge grassed and shaded areas. There are safari tents available but I think these are more expensive than the motels. Meals in the lodge are great and quite reasonable too. I have only eaten in the bar, not the restaurant, and meals are big and better than your normal country pub fare.

Room Tip: Be aware that the walkways are decking so quite noisy with suitcase wheels

We stayed in a one bedroom self-contained room. They only have a few self-contained rooms, most rooms are motel style with no cooking facilities. The room was $310 per night which is to be expected in such a remote location. The rooms were clean and functional although a bit dated and tired. As well as cooking facilities ( oven, 4 burner stove, microwave) , it had a full size fridge, a private washing machine, and outdoor setting on the verandah. There is a well stocked IGA in town for cooking supplies. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay again
