I loved the view of the beach, the furniture in the room, the comfortable bed and the local information that was provided. I didnt like that it was a long weekend and that on tbe Sunday night, their restaurant wasnt open and that they provided no breakfast.

Front desk was very helpful after we were given a single room instead of a family room, then a room that wasn't cleaned. Room and building very old fashioned and not overly clean.

Hi Sorry to hear about the room mix up. You did eventually get your family room and it was cleaned. The build was built in the 60ties and is due to be sold and cleared ready for new 8 story high hotel

Nice location on the Whyalla Foreshore. Rooms very clean. Could do with a upgrade in regards to the bathroom and heating. Great stay!
