Great country motel”

We stayed at the John Pirie Motel during the Port Pirie Masters Games. This hotel was comfortable, clean, mini bar was free (yes free!!!!) and had a great restaurant attached. We ate dinner there both nights as it was convenient and my friends said the ribs were awesome! The staff were super friendly and helpful, always happy to have a chat and enquire about our day when they weren't attending to other customers. I'd definitely stay here again in a heartbeat.

very clean and convenient ”

We were a last minute booking due to attending a funeral in Pirie. We booked a family room and it was worth it to have the extra space. Bed was very comfy and even though on main road traffic noise was minimal. Would stay again.

Beautiful rooms. Great service. quiet location. ”

well appointed modern rooms

I was staying in this motel overnight while travelling alone. It was an easy walking distance from the middle of town, without being too close to the traffic and noise that comes with that. The room was very clean and modern and comfortable. I would recommend this motel to anyone.

OK for Port Pirie”

value for money

Theres not much choice in Port Pirie and this is probably the best of the very average accomodation. Its good value at around a night. However it is very dated with all the cutsey floral decore and dark exposed brick walls; small rooms that are a bit oppresive. Its not within walking distance of the centre of town so you'll need a car.

Quiet Location ”

We only stayed overnight. Liked the fact it was a quiet location but found the rooms a bit dark as they had brick interior walls. The motel had a restaurant attached but we didn't use it, we drove into town for a look round and ended up eating at the BH Club.

Nice place”

Food, location and pool

After booking in I was directed to my room. The Room was lovely and clean with a bathroom that was large enough to move in. All the towels and complimentary bath products nicely laid out. The bar fridge was well stocked with drinks and snacks. Over all a great room. My only negative comment would be that the pillows were hard and lumpy and really should be replaced.

Good food, Comfortable, nice Pool

Only had one night at the hotel and met all my needs. While the location is ok, it would be a good 10 minute walk into the town centre. The bed was really comfortable and the food in the restaurant was great. Overall the price i paid seemed high compared to other weekday rates,but then it was a booking at short notice. Recommedned as a hotel to stay.

We arrived from Adelaide on a 43 degree day. When we entered our room the air-con was already on and cold drinks in the fridge. We got changed into our swimming gear and went into the swimming pool. The pool was nice a clean and deep which is great when your 192cm like me. The king size bed was so comfortable that we had the best sleep in a long time. It

Average hotel with friendly staff.”

Staff were the hotel's best assett.

only stayed one night. staff were welcoming and friendly but i did have a few niggles during the stay. no hot water in the room in the morning. sign in the bathroom reminds guests to help conserve water, but i must have wasted gallons trying to get the hot water to come through. after several minutes i gave up, shaved in tepid water and decided against a cold shower. paid for the cooked breakfast which was pretty poor (and again just tepid). greasy bacon, scrambled egg (dried out around the edges), beans, sausages and mushrooms. under the same hotplate were pastries which turned out to be sweet apricot but looked savoury! wish i'd agreed to my son's suggestion of a mcdonald's breakfast... and i'm not keen on the scottish, american restaurant's food! bar prices seemed a bit steep too, no beer on tap and $8 for a bottle of stella. if you don't expect too much from your stay you won't be disappointed. i was only just about satisfied with my stay here.
