We decided to try the North Coast instead of Mauritius .We looked for a family hotel so we decided on Salt Rock .Great winter weather . Beach is 50 M away from the Building. The staff are fantastic. If you want a hotel where your kids can enjoy themselves then Salt Rock Hotel is the place to go. Not once... More

An older hotel but nicely renovated and clean. We would have prefered a bath but loved the non-smoking rooms. Situated on the beach with all the rooms having a sea view. We were there with a group that booked out the hotel. Guest Relations, Debbie was very helpful. The food was good tasty and a great variety. Tea and scones... More

This hotel has the most magnificent views of the beach! The rooms are spacious and well maintained. The service is excellent and buffet meals are super special. My favourite was the cheese cake, ohh I loved this! The live music performances during dinner are such a special treat. I loved every minute of my stay at this hotel as the... More

We periodically come to Salt Rock Hotel to escape the cold weather 70 or so kilometres inland. It hasn't changed much ever since I can remember but it's clean, the service great, the staff attentive and most of all, the sea views from each and every room is amazing. It is right on the beach front which makes an easy... More

This recent weekend visit was the 4th time I've stayed at this North coast institution, and it's always a pleasure to arrive there. The reception and lounge area steers just the right side of old fashioned, and actually had a fire on when we arrived, due to the low low temperatures of 20 degrees. Breakfast buffet is always well stocked... More

Good value for money. Unbeatable sea views that let you see forever on a clear day. Awesome rock pool and great facilities. A bit old in look and feel but you should be on the beach anyway. Average staff. Great breakfast buffet

We spent 10 great days at this hotel and found the stay amazing. Their "Durban"curries are superb.!! Wonderful sea views in all rooms! I use a mobility scooter and the only negative was the fact the ramps into the reception areaa are badly constructed.
