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...

A modern hotel and comfortable place to stay, but the most expensive on our trip west. Undercover parking for the car and tables and chairs outside under cover. Rooms are a good size, perhaps a tad sterile, bit as I said comfortable. Some trouble connecting Apple devices to the provided internet but likely associated with the device rather than what...

First of all, the owners of this motel are absolutely wonderful. They are friendly, welcoming and obliging. NOTHING is a trouble to them. We have been doing an outback Queensland trip in our own caravan. However, we chose to "spoil" ourselves with a 3 night stopover at this motel. So glad we did. We were able to park our caravan...

The motel was not far from the town centre. The room we stayed in was very comfortable. Ray and Jan were incredibly helpful and even gave us a lift with our luggage to meet a connection. The cooked breakfast was delicious. We can't recommend this motel highly enough - we will definitely stay there again.
