Mountain Shadows Hotel
Ranked #1 of 2 Elliot B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 August 2016

This establishment exudes old world charm and homeliness from the moment you walk in the doors. A dining room with snow capped mountain views and a swan swimming in a pond for good measure. A relaxation lounge with a large fire place and cosy snuggle in couches. A large bar with another huge wood burning fire place all add the exquisite charm of this beautiful mountain retreat. Rooms with electric blankets, comfortable, neat and clean. Mountain Shadows Hotel is a beautiful getaway place for couples or family and very affordable.

Room Tip: all first floor rooms all short walking distances from the main hotel

If you are travelling through this are or exploring it for a day or two then this small hotel is a great place to stop over.

Rooms are large and simply appointed, food tasty and served in a simple buffet style - they get right what many a 5 star hotel cant ... Hot plates ....

Blown away at the landscape while driving the Barkly Pass for the first time...then stumbling upon this hotel for a much needed coffee break. The staff were off for new years afternoon but the hostess happily obliged to provide coffee. Very quiet, peaceful and loved the retro decor and unique layout of the hotel.

We just keep coming back to this great family run hotel and make it a point to stay over whenever we are travelling through the area. It feels like home with the warm welcome, the food and attention to the guests comfort. Elize and the owners always remember us and this makes it personal. The food is wholesome and plenty, just like the good old days. The crisp mountain air is invigorating and the cozy lounge and fireplace is perfect especially in the cold winters.

I recently stayed at mountain shadows hotel. It offers great scenery with the mountains around you as well as a great pub. The rooms are clean and have electric blankets and heaters which are essential in winter. The rates are very reasonable as the offer a dinner, bed, and breakfast.

A nice place to stay, especially in the middle of winter.
