Guest Comments

As someone who is not a typical backpacker but needed reasonably-priced central accommodation, I was pleasantly surprised. For the price this definitely is value for money.
- Vernon Openshaw

I had a group of 12 school children at the Kimberley for 5 nights. The venue was perfect as we pretty much took over the whole floor. The rooms are pretty basic but clean. The venue is a little noisy ,particularly on a Friday night but for a teacher who usually has to keep kids quiet on tour, this was a bonus !The hotel is not pretentious and had a relaxed atmosphere to accommodate the children. The venue was extremely central . The staff were extremely helpful especially Bumper and the chap who I think was the owner. The food was outstanding and really cheap. The children raved about the meals.The staff were very flexible and changed meal times according to our program and even did a packed breakfast for us on the day we left. The service was excellent. I will certainly recommend the hotel to all youngsters I know.
Thanks
