Tr get a room overlooking the ocean, with balcony. We had city view and no balcony to sit outside.... Very clean rooms, towels weren't changed though? Even though we had put them in a bundle on bathroom floor. Breakfast was average, for $25 better off going to cafés down the street. The bars are perfect and great for the footy... More

Views from sea facing rooms on the higher floors are just magnificent. Rooms quite roomy and reasonably appointed. I think by adding more pictures to the mass of blank walls would really lift the appeal and ambience of the room. At present the amount of plain colour, although modern, is crying out for a lift. No complaints though. Everything was... More

Good location with beautiful views, clean well presented and good quality. Easy walking to main street or along Esplanade. Restaurant has great views as well. Certainly can recommend for business or a couple.

clean, comfortable accommodation with everything you need, good restaurant and nice views. Easy walk into town along the beach. Staff always friendly and helpful. Have stayed a couple of times and was upgraded to a spa room on my last visit which was great after arriving late on a cold wet and windy night

Thought we might have stayed for 3-4 nights, but after a sleepless night ( music blaring from the duke box) decided to move on. We were told there would be a live band the next night when we checked in, but nothing mentioned about the noise coming up from the bar and the loud music. Sleepless night, then the street... More

While I cannot comment on the other establishments in PL, there wasn't much that stood out about this hotel. Rooms were appropriately appointed, view was mediocre, restaurant disappointing (with it being the "only" worth while seafood eatery in town according to the staff), rooms were clean although the beds were rather uncomfortable.

I highly recommend if you stay in Port Lincoln, to stay at the Port Lincoln hotel. It's a beautiful hotel, large, lots of facilities, and right next to the port. Rooms are beautiful and serviced daily. The Port Lincoln hotel, also offer free shuttle bus services when shark diving. Definitely recommend and would stay again.

We come here two days per month for Lessons for our Diploma Course and we couldn't be happier. The conferrence room is well set up with pens, paper, water, drinks, morning tea and a lovely lunch is always fresh and delicious. The staff do a great job and we are a very happy bunch!
