Could not fault the hospitality or the food - a very warm and gregarious welcome. Unfortunately our accomodation in the red truck was disappointing for the money. Note that the en suite bathroom is in a seperate block detached from the bedroom so you have to go outside (a short step to be fair but still out in the elements) to get to it. There was also a loud hum of a motor noise off and on all night. Maybe try one of the actual hotel rooms instead as everything else was excellent

We stayed in the green truck 10 years ago and booked it to repeat the experience. However it was not available due to ant problems and lovely Nadine offered us accommodation in the red truck or one of their hotel rooms. We opted for the red truck as the truck was the reason we wanted to stay there. However after a fantastic dinner in the hotel, we got back to our truck we noticed that the floor and cupboards were quite dirty and very dusty, as well as the coffee cups and fridge and would have needed a very good clean. Everything was very worn and old and not worth $150/night. White bed sheets however were clean and fresh, so we decided we dont complain and stay for the one night we had booked. But we wouldnt do so again. Dinner was fantastic and Nadine is a very lovely lady, but the accommodation quirky as it was is not worth it anymore.

Breakfast on the balcony had a great view of the town, vehicles including caravans, tour bus using local facility for morning tea and semi and double B road trains. Lack of microwave and having to wash own dishes in Hotel section was disappointing. Nadine and staff in bar and dining room are very friendly, food was great.

We booked via wotif but the manager rang the morning of to say the room was double booked. She offered a room upstairs at no extra cost and free dinner. Ok. But she estimated only half the actual number of stairs and this meant carrying a non-ambulatory child and his wheelchair up and down. Three times in the evening I tried to order a meal, went for a walk to the other pub (did get served quickly) and playground, and gave up at 8pm as the lines to order were still so long and slow. The hotel was inundated but didn’t appear to have the staff to cope. I gave up and we ate toast, biscuits and cereal from the continental breakfast kitchen for tea. Great shower pressure, fine room. Just don’t expect too much on a school holiday weekend.
