Stayed overnight in the cheapest room. It was very clean with a great garden view. The bed was comfortable but the pillows not so much. It is as it's called right on the foreshore with a great little beach cafe nearby. We did have a couple of nosey kids try and peek into our room from the gardens so I'm... More

We found the room adequate, but somewhat tired. The restaurant was excellent, though. The owners of the property have recently taken back the management themselves and have yet to recall all the previous managers internet 'specials'. Check before you go.

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... More

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.
