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

We stayed here the other night, our overall experience was great! The service, relaxed atmosphere, food, ocean views (with windows that open), massage and pool were all fantastic. Highly recommend and at an affordable price. The double storey rooms can accommodate three people as there is a bed upstairs, facilities were all spotless and the views were stunning. I opted...

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
