The motel is being updated and is reasonably modern with good size room and facilities which are spotlessly clean. The motel has and excellent,... More

Just spent two nights at the Foreshore. The room was clean and quite spacious and accommodated our family in a double and two singles. Had Foxtel on TV and a clean en-suite. The restaurant was excellent and I have reviewed it separately ("The Waters Edge"). While the place is not particularly attractive from outside it offered all we needed and... More

I stay at the Foreshore for work, and think the owners Ben and Bev are hardworking and eager to please (as their staff). Yes, the rooms are dated but they are working at updating. Would recommend an 'ocean view' as that block of rooms are bit more modern. The restaurant is usually busy (with locals too), which says something about... More

Ok the accommodation is old but it is clean and the decor isnt tacky. The service here is great, it is obviously run by the owners. The food was just divine, absolutely not what was I expecting way out in Whyalla! A little on the expensive side but worth it in my opinion. I'd recommend a stay here.

I have been staying at this motel for work on and off for awhile now. The rooms are clean and tidy. The service is second to none. Ben (the manager) and his staff couldn't be more helpful. The restaurant Is second to none. Haven't had a bad meal there yet!

We arrived in early afternoon and reception friendly and although told us restaurant was closed for breakfast we could have breakfast in our room which we found later to be complementary. Very nice bonus. Our room was tidy and had most things we needed other than a microwave. Bathroom was very average and was in desperate need of refurbishment along... More

Amazing food with a host (Ben Vandeleur) who new what I wanted and when I was ready for more. Also impressed by the knowledge of wine and menu by all staff I encounted! Agreed that the rooms are on the dated side but where spotlessly clean and I did notice renovations happening across the way. I will be back!

Upon arrival at the motel we were given the keys to our rooms and off we went, to discover how outdated they were. As others have noted, the AC is old and noisy, but it did do a great job of keeping the room cool, its just you couldnt sleep through the racket it made. The bathroom was dirty, there... More
