My husband and I recently booked a 5 day stay at this old fashioned, charming hotel. We had booked the dinner, bed and breakfast option and due to the price, we're not expecting much. The food was healthy, well cooked and a large variety of home cooking at its best. We had frequented this hotel in many occasions for lunch,... More

Stayed for one night and enjoyed the 'feel' of a traditional old style hotel. Lovely sea view, clean rooms, good food and friendly staff. An ideal venue for parents with young families - close to the beach, plenty open space and jungle gym. Good value for money. Nothing fancy but all that is needed.

This hotel has great views, and the buffet food is generous and tasty. If we could, we would have stayed longer. Our kids loved it here. There is a nice beach and tidal pools. All the stairs are good exercise! The hotel is not 5*, so if that is what you want, look elsewhere. This is a fun place where... More

I've been going here since I was a kid. My family owned the adjacent sugar farm to the founder, Basill Hulett. It is a staple North Coast experience with beautiful views, modern decor, friendly service, great rates and one can order a curry nearly anytime. The brekkies are off the chart. ONE THING that does not make any sense is... More

We decided to try the North Coast instead of Mauritius .We looked for a family hotel so we decided on Salt Rock .Great winter weather . Beach is 50 M away from the Building. The staff are fantastic. If you want a hotel where your kids can enjoy themselves then Salt Rock Hotel is the place to go. Not once... More

An older hotel but nicely renovated and clean. We would have prefered a bath but loved the non-smoking rooms. Situated on the beach with all the rooms having a sea view. We were there with a group that booked out the hotel. Guest Relations, Debbie was very helpful. The food was good tasty and a great variety. Tea and scones... More

This hotel has the most magnificent views of the beach! The rooms are spacious and well maintained. The service is excellent and buffet meals are super special. My favourite was the cheese cake, ohh I loved this! The live music performances during dinner are such a special treat. I loved every minute of my stay at this hotel as the... More
