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.

We have been staying at the Seagate for approximately 5 years. This is why we keep coming back to stay. We have had the pleasure of 3 managers and have always found them all to be friendly and helpful along with all the staff in the restaurant. The service in the restaurant is excellent and the food exactly what one... More

Dined here recently with friends on a Sunday Night. Food was good although food service was a little slow. Reasonably priced and staff were attentive and friendly. Well worth a visit in a very pretty location.

Stayed her 2 nights in April. We have no complaints about the room whatsoever. It was large and had most things you needed. However, getting your luggage up to your room was hard.
