I personally thought the room was expensive compared to others I have stayed in, however when in remote areas I guess you don't have a choice. It was convenient to the hotel where you can get a good meal.

I am really sorry that you felt our prices were expensive but we are on a par as being one of the cheapest motels in town and on a par with any in the region. As you say it costs way more to live and shop in a remote region with our linen costing twice as much as any on...

I was particularly impressed with the friendliness and warmth of the hosts, Jan and Ray. The room was very clean and comfortable, with lovely thick towels and a generous supply of tea and coffee. Breakfast was hot, delicious and on time. Location is ideal, being close to bakery, hotels, library, shops and pool. I'll be back!

On the main street into/out of town. Easy to find, easy to park with undercover parking. Met with great smiles and appreciation from I think it was Ray and Jan who just got back from holidays that same day and still smiling. The room was great, clean, tidy and smelt welcoming. Has everything you need, fridge, microwave, tv, toaster, kettle...

I am really sorry we have not responded sooner. Missed it somehow. Thank you very much for reviewing. We are hoping to build more rooms soon so will make sure we can fit a comfy chair into them. We will pass on to our wonderful cleaners the comments on the rooms. Thanks again.

My sister and her husband are travelling with us, we have a caravan and they stay in motels or cabins. This motel is one of the best. They have a lovely room and are very comfortable. The managers are relief managers but could not do enough for them. We would highly recommend this motel.

Thank you so much for reviewing. Sorry I have been a bit slow responding but just getting into the swing of things after our holiday. So pleased that Peter and Jenny looked after you so well. We look forward to meeting you if you return.

The Outback Hotel is in the main street of Winton about one block away from the town center. This is a great location as it is not far to walk but far enough away to avoid any noise from town. We have stayed in a number of hotels in small country towns and to a degree they are all pretty...

We stayed here in their converted ex-house next door to the main office. It is set up for families and does that quite well with 3 double beds in 2 rooms with a kitchen area as well. It is and upstairs unit so you have to be okay with 1 flight of stairs. There is also and outdoor area to...

After nearly two months away we were delighted to stay with such friendly hosts and in a clean and roomy motel. We were able to leave the car parked and walk into town. The resident Brolga birds were a source of intrigue as they appeared to be quite at home in the front grounds, but almost territorial if approached too...

We stayed in a queen room. There is a strong smell that basically comes from the artesian basin water used in the town. The walls are not soundproof resulting in being able to hear noise from the next room. The bed was comfortable and the room was spotlessly clean. The equipment supplied worked well and in good condition.

Thank you very much for taking the time to review. There is not much we can do about the water but at least it is lovely to drink. We try to keep everything in top condition and we will certainly pass your comments about the clean rooms on to our staff. Have a great journey.

This motel in remote Winton is operated by an outstandingly cooperative couple Ray and Jan who understand how to delight their guests. Our room was spotless, quiet and well appointed and we lacked for nothing. There are good laundry facilities. The two pubs which serve good meals are a very short walk from the motel. Winton has a very special...
