First room was very small with a cracked toilet that wouldn't stop flushing, so we were given an alternative which was bigger. Close to the highway and opposite the bottle shop so lots of traffic. Pub doesn't offer any vegetarian options but the cafe across the road does good pizza and is a lot cheaper. Overall it was a bed for the night but I wouldn't recommend it. Breakfast was ok. Trouble with these towns is they make heaps of money off the mines so really don't have to offer competitive rates or good facilities, but if you want to travel inland you have to accept what's on offer or pay premium rates. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Very average. Aircon/ heater not working lucky had a blanket. Rooms not serviced. Food is ok but thats about all that is good. The cabin beds heads all loose and rock which is very annoying. Shower door did not close properly. The bathroom windows have gaps in between them allowing insects into the room. This will be the last time i stay there.

Dinna was acceptable but breacky and luch were un acceptable, the lunch order was never correct and mad you feel sick. The cabbin wasn’t stable the whole block would shake if you so much as stood up, the cabbins has no insulation, the light on the deck didnt work, the main loght in the room took 5 minutes to heat up enough to see and yu still couln’t see much.

Travelling we stopped into Moura for lunch. This pub had extremely friendly service, affordable delicious meals. Kids were happy to find the tech in kids corner. The eating area was lovely & clean. We will definitely be back again.

Not many options in Moura and the room I had was dated, pretty small and need attention. The food is very good the restaurant was busy and I can see why, good choice and the facilities are very good as well. They do have donga/cabin style accommodation that may be more updated.
