    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.

    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.

    Pool Disappointment”

    One of the reasons I chose to stay here was the fact they had a pool. However, there was a sign saying it was closed for maintenance but it looked as if it had been closed for quite a while as the water was really green and no filter was running at all. I didn't see any staff doing anything around the pool while I was there. Perhaps they should put a note on their website that the pool is not available. I wouldn't have booked here if I had known.

    Convenient location, good for an overnight stay, pub on property great for meal and drink. Noisy.”

    Pro's - Pub on property walk to meals and a drink. Food was good. Bed was okay comfort. Tea, coffee, toaster, microwave, fridge, ironing all in room. Toiletries supplied shampoo conditioner body wash, table and 2 chairs out front of room if you want to watch the stars have a dink looking at car park, no views. Con's - squishy rooms, tight car parking, paper thin rooms, hear people talking walking packing cars closing doors. Staff conversing etc. Loads of work vehicles so early starts and loud conversations, Door slamming early in mornings. Air conditioning was noisy loud and would wake you during the night switching on / off and you could also hear your neighbours air-conditioning as well. Not a place to stay if you are holidaying. Too noisy, too squishy. Only 1 chair in room and bench.

    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.
