Great location. Staff friendly. Had a seafood platter for three- it was disappointing -$200- v. Small 1/2 lobster was over cooked, as was crumbed squid. Prawns and oyster natural nice. Motel was convenient location for our catch up but is in need of update/Reno and some new pillows! On a positive note the small pool was clean and a wonderful spot to spend a hot afternoon- had a great grass area where we sat and enjoyed our wine and nibbles Thank you

Whyalla overnight

Location: The most boring drives lead to amazing destinations. Persevere it's only 45 minutes.
Motel is clean and tidy will definitely stay there again. Convenient parking in front of motel rooms. If you have problems with noise when sleeping you probably will already be travelling with ear plugs [may be required here for the occasional noisy bathroom fan/reverse cycle]. Breakfast menu - excellent choice and the staff accomodate alternative requests. Relaxing ocean view from the well maintained garden. Access from motel to esplanade and beach regardless of age/ability is very good. Choice of cafe style dining on the motel verandah or at the waterfront coffee shop [adjacent to the motel] staff at both are professional and down to earth]. Whyalla foreshore is now a personal favourite and I will return for a longer stay.

I booked the executive room online and was notified by Wotif that there were rooms available. When we arrived at the hotel I was told by the owner that there wasn't an executive room available and were put in a cheaper room than what I paid for. The next morning when I approached the staff regarding a refund I was told it was not possible but there was an executive room available and we could move. I know for a fact that room was available the day before as this was early the next morning and no one had just vacated that room. I asked the staff for a free breakfast to make up the $45.00 difference in the price of the room that we paid for and the room we were put in but was told it could not be done and the problem was with Wotif and to take it up with them. They also said they did not receive a confirmation of our booking until Monday when we booked the room Saturday evening.
