The Hotel is quite quirky in a colonial kind of way,with outside corridors to get to your room.We stayed on the 3rd floor, the rooms were spotlessly clean with huge windows to highlight the amazing sea views. You can walk to the beach in minutes, just down the steps and your there. In it's prime the Salt Rock Hotel must... More

We spent 3 nights at Salt Rock Hotel in October 2014 with our 2 kids. The service was great, the food was great (Oysters and Crab curry in particular) however the a la carte menu was a bit limited. The service was great and the location is just PERFECT with direct access to the tidal pool which is fantastic for... More

This hotel is my favourite beach hotel for family holidays. It is one of the few old fashioned family hotels still standing, that offers great value for money. The location is fantastic - right on the beach with a safe tidal pool and a wide beach which you can walk on forever. My daughter had her wedding at this hotel... More

My first stay in this hotel - was a pleasant experience. The rooms can be a bit noise from guests in next door rooms and children running and playing in the corridors, but otherwise a very nice hotel with an excellent location. Breakfast was very good quality and the hotel restaurant serves some delectable local curries.

I spent the weekend at the Salt Rock Hotel in Salt Rock on the North Coast. This hotel has been in operation for many years as I recall my previous visit, with fond memories as well, being more than 22 years ago. It is obvious that the decor has not kept up with modern trends and the place still smells... More

This is our second visit to this hotel and we had another great holiday. The food is excellent and of a great variety and is included in your stay, breakfast and dinner, lunch and drinks are extra. All the rooms have a fantastic sea view and it's wonderful to hear the waves crashing down at night. My children, now 11... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and was impressed, especially with the location and view. Although the hotel is now pretty dated, there are improvements happening. We stayed in one of the updated deluxe rooms and it was very good, bright and new. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The location on the beach with all sea... More

We have been coming to this hotel for many years and although we keep thinking we should go somewhere else next time we want a beach holiday we keep returning to the Salt Rock. There is no hotel so perfectly located - literally on the beach - and even in season is very well priced particularly when you take advantage... More
