    We stayed for 3 nights via the Travel Auctions. Budget rooms with views of the ocean and jetty from the front of the Hotel. Also had dinner at their restaurant with sunset views. Meals were very nice & presented but the steak & venison was a bit overcooked. Otherwise a great place to stay to relax and enjoy the sunset... More

    Stayed on a travel auctions Nov 2015. On re-confirming by phone and on arrival I was assured that we had a room with sea views. Fact: not so. The room faced onto Bay Road and we could see the cars in the car-park and the house across the road. Room: Very basic and ordinary, 70's style décor Bathroom: Oh ever... More

    We had a lovely meal. Not extremely pricey. They have a new menu. Just beautiful. Wonderful views of moonta bay. The establishment has accomodation which price was great and the room we had, had been refurbished. This restaurant is family friendly. Only a short walk to the jetty and playground and splash town. Well done guys.

    Great location, the rooms whether facing out to the beach side or the car park, are modern, comfortable, clean and tidy with a bit of elbow room. If you are looking for a relaxing stay, near a great beach, some where to park the boat. A walk or fishing from the jetty, visit Moonta and surrounds. This motel is a... More

    Arrival and check-in was fine, however the room was small and cramped and the bathroom even worse. Obviously the motel has been built in a different era and has to make do with the space available. However I have been in motels that have addressed this well and are pleasure to stay in. Moonta Bay Patio needs to research these... More

    Last week we stayed for three nights at the Moonta Bay Patio Motel. It is well located within walking distance of the jetty but our room was at the back and we couldn't appreciate the good view of the sea. There was a good view from the restaurant area where we had dinner one night - compliments to the chef... More
