4/10 Fair

Room includes a plastic chair no table, cupboard, shelf or bedside lamp. Only sheer curtains on windows. Shared bathroom was disgusting, could not bring myself to use it at all. Food was also very ordinary with frozen vegetables still frozen.

Overnight stay
The hotel is a little rustic and the facilities could do with some upgrading. The staff are very friendly and the food and beer were good. For an overnight stay it is value for money.

Taste of Tambo
A warm welcome greeted us at The Royal Carrangarra Hotel. The publican Ben runs a fun crew including laugh a minute chicken races in aid of the Royal Flying Doctors. This is rural country pub hospitality, not The Ritz and the atmosphere is superb. Will be back!

2/10 Poor

Nice friendly welcome with nice staff but the room was a disgrace. The floor was not only dirty but had bits of fluff and paper all over it. It had not seen a vacuum cleaner for weeks and behind the bed was indescribable. The pillows were terrible, the sheets had holes in them and between the sheets was long human hair. I don't belive they had been changed from the last guest. I could not bear the thought of touching any of it so slept in my clothes on top. The toilets were stained from last century and had that unclean look about them. The showers were no better and I chose not to use them. Ok, the pub is old but I've stayed in older with far better facilities. New sheets, new pillows, clean the floor, spend some money on the bathroom facilities. And dont start with you get what you pay for. It doesn't take much to have respect for your guests.

10/10 Exceptional

The staff are friendly, the food was delicious, the eating area, cutlery and crockery were clean. This is a 70 year old pub and it's in an outback town, so you should expect 'character' if you stay here for the night. This would have been a grand building in 1951 and it's worth a look at the big verandahs and polished floors and the stairway upstairs, but be aware that the accommodation and ablutions are run down and patchy, but cheap and better than sleeping in a tent. If that rooster that crowed all night is not a family pet, they should cook the blighter.
