I stayed here the first two weeks in April. I was in room 14 which has access to a balcony that runs the length of the building. This was my favorite feature but there are many more. The apartment was large and well appointed. The photos shown look like room 14. Another high lite is the location. It is downtown... More

I stayed here because of all the great reviews it had. Wasn't disappointed. The veranda was great. Our room was a bit dated but neat and tidy. Close to all facilities and most within walking distance.

This is a GREAT spot to stay if you are visiting Whyalla. New rooms, spotlessly clean, in a beautifully restored pub. Easy walk to Hummock Hill lookout, Sempre and Espressos cafés and Bayview Hotel for a beer. Ten min drive to supermarket and well-equipped kitchen to make your own meals if you'd prefer. Staff were friendly and helpful even staying... More

We were not expecting very good hotels in Whyalla and when we arrivrd the exterior seemed to confirm our fears. Drab and lifeless to the max! But when we entered our apartment it was a totally different story. Modern and very well equipped. E verything seemed new. Lovely!

Thank you for your review, sorry it has taken me a little time to respond. We really appreciate your feedback, and rely on our guests to let us know how they enjoyed their stay. It is hard being a dusty mining town to jazz up the outside too much, but I think our hotel is really beautiful and we work... More

After long days in the car and nights camping and caravanning, it was great to spoil ourselves in luxury with all the mod cons that this place provides. The rooms are spacious which allowed us to stretch out and it was close to the foreshore so the kids could walk to the water easily. Great to recharge before heading off... More

What a find. Very upmarket apartments, beautifully decorated, clean and modern. Like a five star hotel. Staff were exceptional and bent over backwards to help. I was here for business but bumped into others staying and they were also raving. Wouldn't stay anywhere else now. Car parking facilities, breakfast in the room if. You want but I walked to a...

I stayed at Whyalla Quest over Easter and really enjoyed my stay. The rooms are clean, beautifully decorated and the managers Jennifer and Daniel could have not been more accommodating or helpful. The wrap around verandah was such a great surprise and you get a great view of the town. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Whyalla!... More

Stayed here recently (work put me up) & it was perfect. The staff were lovely and the building is beautiful. The apartment itself was clean, lots of space, modern appliances. It was lovely to come home to. Definitely worth checking out.

I stayed here for 3 nights and found the rooms furnished equipped and cleaned to the highest standards. The outside balcony was a great bonus . The managers Jen and Dan were so welcoming and helpful made the place very homely. What more can I say ? A real gem of a place in great location and wonderful staffing .... More

A grand old pub has been beautifully and thoughtfully renovated into bright, modern, clean and airy serviced apartments. The gorgeous facade has been preserved, including the fantastic wrap around balcony. Went to Whyalla for work and was thrilled to discover this fantastic accommodation.
