Visited here with some friends to our trip to flinders and had a great time. We sat outside in the beer garden, the hot chips are so yummy, I don't know how they cook them but they are the best tasting hot chips we have ever had!

Had a counter lunch at the Blinman Hotel, the highest hotel in South Australia. As a vegetarian I was surprised but delighted to see sweet potato chips on the menu which I enjoyed as we had been living on baked beans while camping in Parachilna Gorge.

The weather was vile, rainy and cold, 6C, so there was very little to do in the Flinders Ranges NP, except to look for somewhere warm and cosy for lunch. Blinman Pub seemed to fit the bill, so off we went in search of comfort. Most other damp campers seemed to have the same idea, but this didn't daunt the... More

After a drive from Parachilna we stopped at the Blinman hotel for one of their pie daily specials Lovely atmosphere and the food was excellent. Just what we needed after a dusty trip through the gorge. Would definitely go back

Very friendly place with great pub meals. Fire was going which gave a welcoming atmosphere. Old photos show early times. Steak sandwich filled me for the day and meals were very reasonably priced. Could have stayed all day.

Stayed here in June during an extended outback trip. Room was basic with a comfortable bed and reasonable sized ensuite. Cleanliness was fine. The weather was cold and the ancient RC air conditioner was not up to the job. Comparative value for money against other places we stayed is poor. Lighting in the corridors and especially around stairs from the... More

We stayed at the Blinman hotel for 3 nights and had a really great time. The room was average but functional, didn't want to be spending much time in it due to the beautiful scenery around Blinman. We felt very welcomed, and it was a great place to chat with locals and other visitors to the area. One of the... More

It's not often that you find such an interesting hotel miles away from anything else. Blinman has a population of only 18, yet the hotel can cater for hundreds at a function. The scenery around Blinman is superb and the chef at the Blinman Hotel has a well deserved reputation Australia-wide for wonderful photography in addition to his culinary skills.

Thank Michael M
