I needed last minute accomodation on my road trip. I was able to call ahead at 9pm, negotiate a room, pay over the phone, and have the keys left out for my late night arrival - the receptionist was very helpful, and even had the aircon running for me.

This is a great place to stay in Port Pirie. The rooms are clean and the bedding comfortable. The shower has great pressure and the bathroom roomy. The room had great air conditioning and the car parks are spacious. The team are friendly and easy going. We only stay here when visiting Port Pirie its quiet and easy to find.

Bright, recently renovated with modern linen. Very friendly staff. Air conditioning on our hottest Christmas...

Sylvia at the reception desk was very hospitable and made sure our stay was lovely. My son had his 10th birthday party there and the pool was a great hit with the kids, just wish the Wifi was better and Foxtel would've been great!

Surprised to find quality in such a small town. King bed was a treat. Check in was very efficient. Although milk in mini bar was out of date it was replaced with no fuss. Had a good night's sleep. Would stay again.

Stayed overnight with my Dad in the disabled room. There is a concrete ramp to the room which would conform to standards. The room is spacious. The disabled bathroom has grab rails.
