Our family of 4 stayed in a 2 queen bed room whilst attending a family wedding. We arrived on the evening of Pt Lincoln Races so arrived to a hotel with loud music, overcrowded bar and lots of loitering drunks - not a great start!! On the day of the wedding we were out all morning and disappointed to find... More

Really nice facilities and in a great location! This hotel exceeded my expectations in many ways. I recommend trying out their restaurant too- the food was great! Only negative comment is that the staff refused to make up the fold out bed, which I was booked to stay on in my twin share room. I asked them several times and... More

When visiting pt Lincoln recently we had dinner at the Pt Lincoln Hotel and were pleasantly surprised with the food quality, wine selection and service. Top notch and worthy of praise. They had come off a very busy few days with "the Crows" in town but didn't miss a beat. Well done.

I should start by qualifying my review - I am very fussy about my accommodation. The Port Lincoln Hotel is the best place I have stayed at in years! The place is kept to a meticulous standard, no chipped tiles or luggage bashed walls here! We were greeted by the lovely Penny in reception who was very apologetic our room... More

When we travel from Ceduna to Port Lincoln we sometimes treat ourselves to a stay in the Port Lincoln hotel. Being relatively new still, it feels a little special for a weekend stay. This night was no exception and almost everything was what one would expect. Why then after drawing a dollar from my credit card do they then add... More

Stayed here with my partner for a few days between Xmas and New Years. Location was great with fantastic views over the harbor.

This place was clean, modern, free wifi, a restaurant and bar on site and overall had big city standards in a small boring town. Staff are friendly, the room is clean, location great but the food meh....rather disappointing.
