Chose this motel for a two day stop over based on the web page photos of the view. I was not disappointed. If anything, the room and views exceeded expectation. The rooms are spacious and we'll appointed with panoramic sea views. Laying in bed, and looking over the balcony to the sea gives the impression of being on a ship... More

Our little group of 7 family and friends spent a night in this lovely hotel on a very wet and wild night . Situated right on the shore line of the beautiful moonta bay the wind and rain lashed the hotel all night . The almost fully glass walls of the restaurant allowed for a spectacular show of natures fury... More

Stayed in room 4 and had an excellent stay. First night a cold change had come in and the sea seemed extremely restless. The next morning woke to a magnificent view and an almost glassy sea, and ditto for the next morning. Our room had absolutely magnificent views over the bay. Meals were very good to excellent. Hah, lovely full... More

The Seagate is a hotel with most rooms having a beautiful sea view. It has an outside balcony that encircles the first floor, but guests are not encouraged to walk past their room boundary ( due to privacy reasons I guess). Nevertheless the view will be spectacular wherever you are. There are stairs only leading up to the first floor... More

The room was terrific and the view from the floor to ceiling windows was magnificent. Moonta bay is a great little place and the Seagate is a lovel place to return to after a day of looking around the coast. The room was very clean , bed comfortable and generous amount of tea and coffee. We will stay again

Daniela greeted me like an old friend the moment I arrived, and my every need was accommodated with huge warm smiles. Service just doesn't get better than this. The view was delightful, the room was spacious, modern and spotless. And the food was 5 star in both quality and presentation. The Atlantic Salmon with (real, house-made) hollandaise was divine, and... More

This delightful place is situated right on the beach, a great starting point for a walk along the foreshore and jetty. The view from the room was stunning. A great place to relax, I only wish we could have stayed another night. The owners were very accommodating of our late arrival. The room was spotless and modern.

Glad to hear you enjoyed your stay. We are making a few changes to the bistro and surrounds and hope you can return to experience these. We'll open some doors out to a relaxing alfresco area and offer tapas and sharing platters for all day dining and drinks. These will be completed before the end of the year so hope... More
