After a long drive the warm greeting and welcoming drinks with lively chat was so friendly. The comfort of the room and bed exceeded our expectation. Waking in the morning to the lovely sea vista kissed by the early sun was gorgeous. The motel restaurant was excellent - silver service with excellent wines. We will certainly come back and highly...

The location of this property is fantastic & the Whyalla Council are to be commended on their efforts on the foreshore area .. but the motor inn could do so much more to capitalise on their view. I see that the rooms are currently being refurbished but it seems it has been happening for a loooong time. The carpets were...

On arrival, upgraded to an ocean view room, room immaculatly clean, loads of hot water (although shower curtains are notorious for sticking to you). The weather was appalling with ferocious winds and the door kept banging, but nothing a piece of card folded up couldn't sort out.

We had a wonderful meal, beginning with the most gorgeous and giant coconut prawns and progressing to tender lamb rack. A surprising find in a regional city, with superb meal and attentive and professional service.

This largish motel is quiet and close to everything. only lawn to the sandy beach. Weekend markets and music sometimes on the lawns. Very friendly and helpful service. Free WiFi and breakfast I like that is was central but not being buzzed by traffic - NO traffic noise!

Thanks Gerald for you great review We are very fortunate to be blessed with a fantastic location The council has been very proactive in coordinating special events like the markets , even a moonlight semi shown on the side of a semi trailer in summer. There is more to Whyalla than many think.

Top spot for a motel we had a beautiful view, the room was comfortable but the bathroom a bit outdated and was not cleaned very well. As I previously cleaned in a hotel for 15 years and a Hospital for 7 years the cleanliness was not up to scratch but this is all I can fault about our room. We...
