Stayed at Moonta Bay for 3 nights, in that time we had dinner 2 nights at the Patio Restaurant. The service was very friendly and food was exceptional, cooked to perfection. Would highly recommend this restaurant. Stayed March 2015

Had 2 meals in 2 nights at the Patio Restaurant, both evenings were awesome. We all had different meals and they were cooked to perfection. The service was friendly and excellent. Stef, Mat and the team are to be commended on great food and service. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone who visits this great little seaside town.

My husband and I have just returned from 2 nights of a 3 night travel auction to the Moonta bay motel. We have been there twice before so we knew we were getting a budget motel.

We are sorry that your experience with us was not what you expected. You should have been offered a cash alternative to allow you to have a meal at another venue as compensation and we will be sending you a cheque to reimburse you this amount. The cleaning will be addressed and we once again apologise More

Have stayed here 3 times now, each time has been great.Great service and hospitality. Short walk to the beach and jetty! The resturant does good meals and has a fair wine selection.The new playground area for kids is a short walk towards the jetty and has water rides etc for kids.Overall it's a great place to stay.

Our room at the Patio was a great size. We found everything worked, the wardrobe is a good size there is plenty of room for all of our gear and was very comfortable. The bed was exceptionally comfortable and dining table big enough for 3 people to dine at. Well within walking distance to the beach. Booking was made very... More

Rooms a refurbished and spacious the location is magic and I could stare out to sea all day. The beds are latex topped so very comfy but get a little warm. The restaurant is well worth a visit food was exceptional. I would definitely stay here again

Service was friendly and available. Room was very clean. There was nothing to complain about in a well located Motel to Moonta Bay. Did not use the restaurant but the view from there was good. Recommended.

Very Friendly staff who actually care about what they are doing. Meals were of a very high standard. Couldn't fault the food at all. Accommodation is at a great location and rooms are clean and comfortable. Will definitely return. Would recommend having a meal there even if you are staying elsewhere.
