The room was a cabin, not our idea of a good stay. Restaurant was ok, but expensive. It was expensive for the type of room given. Would not recommend. We wanted to stay overnight on our way down from Katherine to Alice Springs, was advised to stay here by Darwin tourist information centre, they shoud check it out before recommending...

Whist traveling down the middle we literally lost a tyre off our caravan (rolled off) at 90kms/ph. Scary stuff, we did what we could roadside and limped to hi-way inn Daly waters. The very next morning Jack the mechanic assisted us at every turn. He arranged for replacement parts to be collected from Katherine, he allowed us to leave our...

We camped at the Hiway Inn the first night of a three week road trip. The staff could barely draw themselves away from the TV in the bar to welcome us, take our money and provide instructions for camping "just go out the back". The restaurant/bar/service station smelt of stale beer, deep fried food and looked to be in need...

Rude staff, unwilling to help, amenities appalling and dirty. They also write your credit card details on a page in a lever arch file left on the front counter! After travelling over 1000kms on this particular day we stopped in to the road house. The counter lady was quite disengaged ('I dont know I only work here') and very rude...

Luckily the Hi Way Inn had one room available, a cabin with a queen and bunk bed, for !50 per night. The cabin consisted of a small kitchenette, table, tv and lounge, ensuite,...

We stopped here after leaving Katherine at 5pm, arrived around 7:30 and we were greeted by some lovely staff, our motel room is great, AC is amazing and beds comfy. Had dinner in the restaurant and it was also AMAZING, well priced - Highly recommended

They had run out of rooms when we turned up. Only had a backpacker room left. Really basic room , beds not comfortable and the share toilet was broken. Would not recommend these rooms. The food was great and makes up for the room.

Pleasantly Surprised on 2 fronts. Dinner provided a varied menu offering some interesting dishes. Choosing Pork Chops was a winner, a large delicious serve. Service was very good and pricing reasonable. I was impressed. Accommodation also was good, clean, spacious and a very good, quiet air con a winner.

Nothing really good to say about the Dalywaters Hiway Inn Motel. A room with a bed, side table, one chair and a bar fridge (without a seal). A TV but no remote control - 'must have been stolen' was the helpful comment from staff in the bar/restaurant. The sheets had holes, and were definitely not new. No en-suite - but...
