I just wanted to say that our stay on the weekend was great you have a great motel and I will let others know if they are looking for accommodation in Whyalla to give your place a go. We were very happy with the service from your staff they were very helpful and its good to find some good old fashion customer service.

We will look at staying again next time we are staying in Whyalla

Dear Sue and Steve,
We would like to formally thank both you and your wonderful staff at Mirambeena Lodge and Legends Estate for the professional way that you have managed our accommodation needs since February 2013 through to February 2014.During this time we have had various size crews from 5 at the start of the project  to 100 personnel during the peak of construction, your staff have managed to keep us all well feed, provided us all with first class accommodation,  airport transfers pick-ups and drop offs  and all in between – nothing has been too much trouble, whilst always making everyone feel welcome, our home away from home, we could not have asked for or expected better quality service, we sincerely thank you.

Clive – GRES Construction Manager


We as a business have seen a huge transformation over the seven years that we have been utilising your services. From Room upgrades to the addition of the Pool and gardens, BBQ, Outdoor pizza Oven and other great services that add comfort and tranquility.

Our crew that stay with you at the Mirambeena class it as a home away from home. Great meals “better than home” not that they would admit it to their partners. A comfortable atmosphere for relaxation after a hard day in the field either around the pool on the deck or by the bar is sure to appeal to most . The staff are always pleasant and more than willing to assist. We will definitely recommend you and your establishment to other businesses or travellers for both long/short term accommodation. THANK YOU for the consistent improvement of services over the years and wish you all the best in future endeavours.

I turned up on the door step of Mirambeena back in January 2009 and was greeted with a welcoming smile from Sue and from that time on for the next 5 years every day was the same. I was treated like family from day one by Sue and Steve and the rest of the staff. I have watched the place change into what it is today a modern vibrant place to come and stay and re lax after work or even just passing through, but one thing that hasn’t changed is the laid back friendly atmosphere when you walk in the front door.

I’ve been working in the drilling I mining game for 11 years and seen a lot of Australia but vie never felt more welcome and well looked after than my time at Mirambeena and that is a credit to Sue, Steve and Chloe, Gene and Sain in the kitchen and the rest of the staff for creating that feeling.

Any company looking for genuine va lue for money and dealing with qu lity people then I strongly recommend doing business with the team at Mirambeena.

Cheers Scott.

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thanks for everything while we have been staying at Mirambeena. The accommodation and meals were top class and the service that you and your staff have provided has been the best that I have come across during more than 10 years of doing FIFO/DIDO projects around Australia. All your staff have been very friendly and helpful. The accommodation was very clean and tidy and provided a very relaxing place to wind down after a day on site and the room rates are very reasonable.

Once again, thanks to you and Steve and we’ll see you again in the next week or two.

Dearest Sue, I had a fantast ic time, you guys are god sent.

thank you so much for the great time yesterday, and the wonderful hospitality that you have shown me and my whole team in the last months.

You guys have captured in our hearts, something that in the world of techno logy, and speed, seems to be non-existent. Compassion and love. thank you so much. I wish you and everyone else a great Christmas, all the joy and love that you deserve, and a prosperous and above all, healthy and happy new year.



I stayed at the Mirambeena with Sue & Steve for more than a year. Sue & Steve really look after everyone stays with them & the Mirambeena is like a home away from home.  I personally had a great stay, met some lovely people and was very well looked after. The rooms are good the beds really comfortable the staff really friendly and the food is great. Whilst I was there Sue & Steve developed the motel and it has a real warm atmosphere.

I would happily recommend the Mirambeena to anybody that is looking for a place to stay.

Sam and the team have such high regards for you . You have created a home away from home for them, that coming to Whyalla was a pleasure. We are all disappointed that the project ended so abruptly.

Thank you

Take care. Krishny
