Pros: Location to the local sports grounds. I attended the Bloody Slow Cup for the weekend.
Cons: My confirmation & booking stated "Buffet Breakfast". I was informed when I arrived for breakfast that my booking only included a "Continental Breakfast". My understanding of a "Buffet Breakfast" is everything, not just cereal & fruit!!

Convenient for travelling home from Broome to Pert

Pros: Convenience
Location: Didn't really explore the surroundings. Just needed a shower and sleep
A convenient stopover for the long drive from Broome to Perth. Meals are available on site. More of a camp stopover but clean and tidy.

Clean n comfy

Pros: Good food, comfy bed
My only gripe was my room was close to the road. There was a lot of noise from trucks and cars racing and doing burnouts. Things quietened down later in the night. Overall, the room was comfy, food was good. Thanks Mia Mia.

Basic budget stays only

Pros: Staff were friendly.
Cons: Don't put visitors to your area in a room next to the highway. The restaurant area should at least be open to get a drink from the bar.
Location: Is on a main road.
This place is geared for the FIFO workers - it is basically "donga" style accommodation. Definitely not for the tourist or for couples. The room was so small my husband and I could not pass each other. It is actually smaller than in the pictures on line. The pillows were awful - they probably should have been replaced long ago (fortunately hubby travels with his own pillow). We killed half a dozen cockroaches in the bathroom. The reception knew we were visitors to the area, not workers, but allocated us a room right next to the highway where the huge rigs are coming around the corner late at night and again at dawn. We stayed for 2 nights and the room was not cleaned. My husband had to go and ask for clean towels. The restaurant area was closed after breakfast until dinner. Only redeeming thing was the continental breakfast being included.

Parking to far from rooms. Didnt stay

Didn't end up staying car parking nowhere near the rooms would have had to lug luggage far to far to room. Rooms very small definitely not worth the money
