“Better accommodation for this area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2014 via mobile

I recently stayed here while in town on business. I found it to be great value with the all inclusive meals package. The food was really good. Phone reception was limited in the room but was fine outside. One thing that would make my stay easier is if the facilities where explained better on arrival, I was unaware there was a laundry until my last day and I normally like to do my washing. Will defiantly be staying here again though.

I stayed here overnight on my two day drive from Perth to Broome. For $135 I got a clean and tidy single with comfortable bed and good quality linen (sheets and towels). The rooms are reasonably new with a split air-conditioner, flat screen TV and Foxtel - this makes the price all the more remarkable (and more especially in Newman).
NB: On my previous trip south I'd stayed in a Roadhouse donga for $110 which was simply the pits!
I had a meal in the Capricorn Bar & Grill which has 8 beers on tap, an extensive menu and inside and outside (on pretend grass) seating. My "Roadkill" Pizza was most acceptable and really the only downside of this place was the incredible volume of the music!
I would definitely stay at this place again.

My room was disgustingly filthy. Pindar stains all over the walls,floors and even a pindan footprint on the ceiling ?
Tv doesn't work and no phone reception inside room.
Lucky it was only $79 a night.

I recently visited Newman on business, decided to stay at the Capricorn Village. The stay was great, close to the airport, clean rooms and comfortable, free in-house movies and nice surroundings. I was there two days and dinned at the Bar and Grill the first night, the steak was perfectly cooked. Then at their dinning hall the second, more buffet style arrangement also very good, plenty of choice and well priced.

I will be staying again, recommend.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013 via mobile

I have stayed in multiple accommodations in the Pilbara and know the expectations are different. But I was still disappointed with outback travel centre.
The room I stayed in was dark and dingy, the bed very low. I had hassles with the booking being charged for a meals package ($93.50 a night ) which I neither asked for or received. I requested a queen bed and got a "king" single.
The room did not have the basic facilities such as coffee making or toaster. The tv took 10 minutes to get working.
The facilities here are like any other mine camp, gym, golf putting, sports courts, pool ( not finished) but was not hold if or how we access it.
All in all, disappointed and will not return.
