Have been going there every couple of months for a few years, a week at a time. The new chef Michael has recently started there and his meals were the best I have had there, tasty, beautifully presented and ample portions. He has also reintroduced tasty specials board. Enjoyed all meals this trip

Spent one night on a shady unpowered grassed site for $24. We were told we had to pitch right next to the road as the area of grass in the middle of the site was "unsafe" - no idea why! Traffic in the night didn't keep us awake though. We used the pool which was nice and cold but pretty...

This place was barely adequate. Downside was that the cook over cooked the schnitzels, no wifi because the manager wasn't there and the ground outside the chalets became easily flooded after rain. However, the chalet was clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. I have given this motel 3 stars because they honoured my booking although I would be...

Renner Springs is a handy stop over from Darwin either heading across to QLD or south through Tennant Creek. It is essentially a road house with basic accomodation. We stayed overnight. While everything is dated and in need of a makeover, the room was clean and the shower was good. The Los box air conditioner rattled a bit, but worked....

Terrible!!! We were placed in the joke of a building hiding behind the toilet block! Covered in gecko poo!! The showers, bathroom and floors! We couldn't leave quick enough but had no choice but to stay here having driven south from Darwin after a very long day! Air con on main bedroom way too loud to operate, so we all...

Great staff and the typical hotel atmosphere you'd expect from an outback establishment - and yes the beers are cold and the company warm. The motel rooms are basic but located a little off the highway so road noise is low. The springs are not as aesthetically beautiful as you'd hope but still a nice side attraction, especially if interested...

I had read this was the pick of the bunch from Tennant Ck, however it was quite a let down. It was very basic & charged quite a high fee for what was offered. We stayed at nicer more lush campsites for $10 - $15 less than here. Wouldn't recommend.

Cracking dinner in this rather secluded but delightful desert stopping point. The restaurant was spotless and the food well cooked with substantial, but not over loaded servings. Lovely shaded area on the outside to eat - if only the bush flies would sod of.
