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.

I stay here with regularity for business trips. Often concocted ones as I like the town, the hotel and the whole concept of getting away from the office. This hotel is well appointed, has good views of the bay, well run and the food is excellent. Location on the watefront with other restuarants, shops, and hotels only a short walk... More

We stayed two nights in July 2015. The Hotel is quality all the way through. The prices were excellent, especially compared to an equivalent place in Perth. The entrance and reception is very nice, the staff were great and the rooms were clean and tidy. We had room with two doubles at a great price. The staff were very helpful,... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. We found the room to be spacious, clean and very comfortable with great views. We ate several times at sharky's bar and found the week specials great value. We were disappointed with several aspects of our trip however. Firstly car parking is an issue at this hotel. On two...

Lovely receptionist (thanks Sarah) nice hotel, clean fresh smelling room and nice powerful hot water shower after a long day of travelling. Restaurants all around including inside the hotel (visit Sharky's to unwind over a nice meal). Best part was the view from my balcony. Leave your curtains open overnight and wake up to a magnificent sunrise in the morning.... More
