Fair 4,0
Other than the food in the hotel restaurant which was good, the room in the hotel was in the 1950's style. Many cracks on the walls, a few spiders on the high ceiling of the room, no refrigerator and the air conditionned was not powerfull enough to cool down the room temperature (it was 36 C outside) even though it was at 18 C with the fan at maximum. I did not sleep well, the room was too warm. Although the hotel is the only establishment in this town, I do not recommend this hotel.

Not much more can be expected from a place this far out in the Outback. We were very pleasantly surprised and completely satisfied with our stay. From what we saw of other places an hour or so down the road either way, we made a great choice. I'd recommend this to anyone.
