madmax and I stayed there Saturday night on my way home from the Grampians, the pub style rooms are a step above most similar rooms and are in a accommodation block separate to the pub itself, they also have a guest kitchen, dining and lounge room to use, $50 a single is great value, $50 a double or $65 for a triple is amazing value for what you get. The pub serves awesome pub food all day and it's bistro meals are to die for

The photos are average but will give you a bit of a idea on size etc

The publican a bar/kitchen staff were all very friendly, as were all the locals

roughly 1/2 way from Melbourne to Adelaide, a top little spot for a 2 state meet up

Naracoorte, 

Bushman's Arms Hotel

$60 per night, en suite pub room

Bike Security - Awesome, locked in the Grog Shed
Meals - Good
Beer - Cold
Staff - Friendly
Room - Bed, shit, picked the best of 2, only sagged 8-10", the other sagged into the ensemble base, shower, average at best, AC, was nearly cool by 6am 10 hours after the cool change came through

4/10, a new AC and bed would give it a 8

BTW, mm would probably rate it higher, he took spanna's room with the good AC and had a better bed
