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

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
