“Very Noisy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We were advised at check in last Saturday that there would be music and as we had stayed before thought this was ok. Music quite loud but did not mind this, it was well after the music stopped that we were annoyed with loud talking and laughing until well after 3am. We presume this was staff after close of the hotel.
Never again.

After a long day..... Needing a good nights sleep before a 10 hour drive the next day. The first thing I see in my room was ear plugs? Ear plugs dont stop the bed shaking from the band downstairs. There would be more people furious they can't sleep here than there are people watching the band.
Overpriced and down right rude to take your money without any suggestion that you won't get much sleep. I would have had a better nights sleep in the car, and it wouldn't cost me the earth. Don't stay here.

Room Tip: Get a room somewhere else.

We went to the hotel for a good pub meal but were disappointed. The service was very slow and the food took ages to come out. The chicken snitzel came with what tasted like packet gravy but cost $2. The scotch fillet was nearly $30 and was over cooked and tough.
While the location is nice if you choose to sit outside to enjoy it be ready for someone to smoke next to you.
Overall, very disappointing.

Such an awful experience we left at midnight. Room was stocked with ear plugs - this should've been our first clue. Loud music which shook the entire hotel went on until past midnight and as we had booked by phone from the road the reception staff never mentioned that there would be live entertainment, even when we checked in. As we were driving a long distance the next day we wanted to be well rested. Had the noise been the only issue we could've got over it but, the bathroom was built in a cupboard and the shower screen was smashed with large shards of glass hanging precariously. The bathroom was mouldy and dirty. There was no secure parking and with the rowdy crowd we worried constantly about the vehicle. The final straw came when my mother pulled back the cover on her bed to discover that the sheets were dirty with hairs, muddy scuff marks and the sheets crumpled. The thought of sleeping in someone else's filth was repulsive so we decided sleeping in our car would be preferable to this dump. Don't even waste your time.

i am not sure how i cant write a review for the bistro so here it goes :). Great value for money , especially on specials nights. all meals inclusive of salad & veg bar as well as self serve ice cream bar. service can be slow when its busy and bookings recommended fri/sat nights. ate here twice during my recent stay in port lincoln, highly recomment the ribs & schnitzel along with the scallops meal. do not recommend the fish and chils - poor size and not very tasty. otherwsie, satff friendly and drinks specials a good deal also. enjoy :), please bare in mind this review and ratings are for the bistro

Noisy. Inexpensive. Reasonable food. Very basic breakfast. Tariff included breakfast. Better without breakfast. Not much choice. Though most of the have Port Lincoln view with shared balcony. Handy location for Port Lincoln. In the middle of the town. To some extent uncomfortable beds as well. Would like to stay somewhere else next time and try not to save $20.

Headed down to the "Tassie" on a wet Sunday afternoon for lunch. Decided on the Devilled Scallops and the Lamb/Chicken Yiros pizza to share between 2. My last meal was less than favourable here, but we were very impressed. Scallops nice and spicy and the pizza delicious. Friendly service and staff. Pity we had to leave as the band was about to fire up - would have been a perfect way to spend the afternoon.
