We came to LR during the summer, it was their quiet time. We stayed here in the upstairs unit 47. The unit was clean, except for the sofa coverings, but they weren't so grubby that we couldn't use it.
In the main area, it has a comfy queen and single (which we didn't use) with the kitchen that had a return bench on it around which for bar-style stools were, sofa and TV.
A large 2nd bedroom had yet another two single beds, and cupboard and shelving. Kids tell me they were comfy.
The bathroom while having a look of the eighties is quite new and all of it was clean. If you're not used to showering in bore water (and I'm not) it seems to feel a bit slimey, but it does the job.
The bowling club is across the road, and does stock standard club meals.
The town is very dusty at this time of year, and can get extremely hot, so our rooms air conditioning was a God Send.
The wifi in the room is quite a distance from the router, and my kids were not thrilled with its reception. I told the kids to get over it, although Carol is really lovely I didn't bother raising it with her because I thought it would do my kids some good to not be online quite so much :).
The decor is unusual and a little dated in style, but when you consider where you are and how far stuff has to travel to get to the ridge, I think they've done a great job.
If you want somewhere clean and comfy with friendly managers this is your place.
We did an Outback Opal 3 hour tour and had a lot of fun chatting with the locals and one miner. As one of the locals said "the Ridge is the largest unfenced lunatic asylum"... I would say its filled with eccentric people who made me feel completely welcome and at home :-)
