Lovely people running the place. Rooms very clean and tidy and a fantastic BBQ area which we used gladly. No BBQ tools though. Room equipped with plastic plates and cutlery - disappointing and below standard. Using the plastic fork on the BBQ was bad - especially for the fork. Playground is just two swings close to the carpark. But only... More

We stayed at the Best Western Whalers Inn for 2 nights and found it to be very clean, neat, well equipped and comfortable. On site parking right outside the room was a bonus. Another bonus, which after having to sleep at other hotels with the air-conditioning on, were the bedroom windows, as they opened. Would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is another good standard country style 4 star hotel. Heaps of on site parking, just off the highway into town with no road noise from the rooms, very clean and comfortable, with pleasant and friendly staff, (and the old terrier dog). There appears to be ample parking for trailers and large vans - just check the height restriction... More

We booked into the Whalers Rest Motel which is on the Henty Highway coming in from Hamilton, the room was beyond expectations, quite large with a king size bed, sofa, dining table, bench with tv, coffee making etc....

This motel is situated about 5mins away from the city centre. However, if you have a car, it didn't really matter. Here, you have secured parking and a safe & serene environment to stay in. Travelling to places of attractions like the Cape Bridgewater, Cape Nelson Lighthouse is a breeze. The host is friendly and settling in is easy. The... More
