Lovely Hotel perfect for Holidaying with little kids. Breakfast and Dinner was included, food really good, was nice to be able to "dine" with little kids as there were lots of kids running around! The swimming pool area is perfect for families and the beach walking distance. Staff friendly. Hotel rooms are busy being uprated, we stayed in one that... More

This must be our 6th time at Salt Rock Hotel - stayed over Easter weekend with kids and had fun as always. Weather was warm but not humid, sea warm with plenty of wave action for the kids [and adults!] but be really careful - the currents are seriously strong on all the beaches! Tidal pool is a relief after... More

Expected more from the room . It had more of a chalet feel to it as opposed to a hotel. The buffet was not up to scratch . Curries were watered down and the veg pasta was lacking taste. The breakfast however was lovely. What the hotel lacks in food n the room is made up by the spectacular view... More

An amazing hotel you just can't resist coming back to. My wife and I stayed there in January again for the 5th time and it just seems to get better each time we visit. Not only do we do the quick weekend getaways (or longer if possible) but we often stop for lunch just for the curries on the sundeck... More

We stayed at Salt Rock Hotel as a last minute extension to a long weekend spent down on the North Coast. Even though we made the reservation on the day of arrival, the front desk was very helpful and booking easy! The rooms are elegant and comfortable nice big beds and clean facilities, although the shower-bath did leak quite a... More

My family and I have stayed at the Salt Rock Hotel on numerous occasions. We have tried other accommodation at the coast but always come back to Salt Rock Hotel. The rooms have magnificent sea views, access to the beach is easy, the service is outstanding. The DBB option is quite pricey but really worth it. The food is abundant,... More

We've been 3x, and it's becoming something of an annual tradition. Wonderful sea views and access to a private beach, awesome food/service, lovely family vibe. If I could live there I would. "Summertime and the living is easy", for sure! Excellent value, food for the soul!

This is a family destination during in-season, and it is magnificent at being just that. The. Food. Is. Outstanding. Everything else is stunning - rooms, location, people - but the food is really, really worthy of mention. We have already booked again for next year. Same time. Same room. We just can't wait! I hope this place doesn't become too... More

My family and I spent three weeks at the hotel. Absolutely fantastic in every aspect from accommodation, food, customer service to entertainment. My family have been lucky enough to have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world. Salt Rock is a hidden gem! Already booked for 2015. We all can't wait. See you soon
