The resort has wonderful sea views and has easy close access to beach and the tidal pool. Elderly people will enjoy the tidal pool as well as everyone else.Decor is rustic and resort is relaxed and fun.Not too many activities like other hotels but amenities are sufficient

A long-awaited three-day holiday at Salt Rock Hotel proved disappointing. The setting is indeed superb. The "deluxe" room, however, was basic at best. Shower over the bath with plastic curtain. Toilet cistern took hours to refill; with three adults sharing, this was a problem. Accommodation for additional adult(s) or children is a glass cublcle. The much-vaunted patio can't be used... More

What a superb setting. Stunning views of the sea and beach from most rooms and easy access to the beach and tidal pool. Some rooms are on two levels whilst other rooms open onto their own balcony....so if you are elderly possibly ask for the later. Reasonable rates, fair restaurant, stunning swimming pool and the staff were extremely helpful, cheerful... More

We loved our stay at Salt Rock and our holiday break there was truly relaxing and fun. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We had a room with a small kitchenette which was super for our 2 small children. The space in the room was well used and made the stay very comfortable. Sea views fantastic. Only point the bin...

I really liked this hotel. We stayed in Room 604 which is on two levels and has the most breath taking views of the ocean. The whole place has a rather relaxed, old fashioned feel to it, which I personally love. OK so some of the rooms are a little tired, but there seems to be a refurbishment going on,... More

“Making your way in the world today takes everything you've got. Taking a break from all your worries, sure would help a lot. Wouldn't you like to get away? Sometimes you want to go. Where everybody knows your name, and they're always glad you came”. Returning to Salt Rock Hotel for a short holiday after I stayed there for a... More

All rooms face the sea and is a great advantage if you were to receive one of the last rooms available. Normally you get the cleaners room. Good food and great service. The hotel also has a nice view of Shaka's castle/tidal pool with direct beach access. Great fishing spots like the one on top of Shaka's castle and around... More

The hotel also has a 'hidden secret', a club house and pool, just across Basil Hulett drive, where the most amiable of managers, John Smale, oversees the good stock of beverages and good 'value for money food'. Relaxed, with big TV screens, and plenty of atmosphere, one can rally trip out here

This is a great value for money beach resort. The only con is that there are no separate smoking designated sections which means that everyone gets exposed to awful cigarette smoke especially at the pool and on verandas.
