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!

Top spot for a motel we had a beautiful view, the room was comfortable but the bathroom a bit outdated and was not cleaned very well.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...

Great little motel in Whyalla. Clean rooms, friendly service, comfy beds.. And joined to a great restaurant! Very close to a cafe at the beach and some rooms have ocean views too. Well worth the price if staying in Whyalla, and a close taxi ride to the Eyre hotel also. We will be back!
