Well positioned hotel

Pros: Position close to main street and eateries.
Cons: Key return at office for early check out.
Location: Artesian bore baths only 5 min drive away. Club just a short walk up the main street.
Clean rooms and facilities and has a bistro for meals.

Cabin style motel rooms

On a winter road trip we stayed in a motel room at this caravan park. very cute rustic cabin design. Kitchenette, wifi and tv convenient. Reverse cycle aircon for cold nights. Down to earth friendly staff. Short walk to main street. Across the road from tourist info.

Obliging and helpful staff

We stayed at the Outback resort for three nights in the July school holidays. We were three self sufficient couples in three motel rooms and we found the staff very patient, helpful and able to cater to every request (and there were quite a few). The rooms were clean and comfortable but without a few things that we needed. Our first request was for microwaves for cooking our porridge, which they promptly provided. The next request was for dinner plates which we needed as we used the onsite BBQ for two nights of our stay. Our next request was for BBQ tongs and finally some dishwashing liquid. All of the above were provided no hesitation and a smile. The staff were also helpful with providing information on all things touristy. All in all a great experience at the Outback Resort, although next time I need to book earlier to get a self contained cabin so that we don't have to bother the staff every five minutes. The only negative was that for four motel rooms there were only two outdoor tables and four chairs.
