Great hotel. Nice room with a spa! We loved it! Clean and well stocked. Staff really friendly and helpful. The receptionist helped us out in finding places to visit and she even arranged for the return of some books that we inadvertently left behind! Would definitely stay there again. Broken Hill and Silverton are great places to visit.

Cockroaches and ants in the spa room”

I have stayed at Deserts Sands on previous occasions without a problem, however this time around we were besieged by cockroaches in the spa room, and lines of ants crawling out of the spa bath jets. The room also looked tired and unclean, almost as if no guests had stayed there in some time. Really huge letdown considering I had recommended we stay there, after the last trip I took.

clean room but...”

the room was ok as a 2 to barely 3 star. Its attached to the hotel. Had an evening meal there on a Saturday night. The bistro was empty when i was there. After getting the fisherman's basket i understand why. Everything in it was all pre-battered from a frozen packet. Over cooked and not very nice. The staff in the motel were nice and friendly. Beds are old and pillows paper thin. Im sure there are better options for that price bracket.

No frills - just a cheap clean comfortable room - although parking next to your room is a lottery - I chose to park in the street - it gets a bit crowded.

Good value for money but has been a long time since it was a 4 or 3 star property”

Great location, good value for money for the location, however the grounds are a bit grotty. Needs a good clean in and around the laundry area and also the front of the property. The hotel that is advertised as part of the complex has been closed for some time, so there is no restaurant .This being said the staff are great are very helpful. The rooms are in urgent need of a update.

Overall a disapointing experience”

Venue has really been let go. Rooms are dated and in dire need of refurbishment. I believe the establishment has changed hands, staff use this as an excuse for not being able to provide simple request (like a tax invoice for dinner), I later found out that the new management took control of the business in December 2016! It's not good enough to be using that excuse 8 months later.
