Our room was clean and comfortable. Nice meal at the restaurant at the motel. Good menu to choose from plus great breakfast every morning looking out across the water and jetty. Staff were excellent and obliging. Motel is situated close to the jetty and the beach. Will stay at the motel again when we next visit Moonta.

This is a nice room, not fancy, but comfy, nice new shower room, clean. The bed was a little firm, but that wouldn't have been such a problem if the storm hadn't kept us awake! Lots of parking, very pleasant staff, lovely view of the bay. And the restaurant was very good.

The motel is well equipped and very comfortable. There is a fridge and kettle and ample supplies of coffee etc. A toaster or microwave would be an improvement. We tried the restaurant and the meal was delightful and different. We loved the German cheese.

The Patio is in an amazing location. You feel like you are at the gateway to Moonta Bay. The view is amazing, over one of the most picturesque beaches in Australia. The hotel is consistent, good service, providing all required. A great base from which to explore Moonta Bay and Port Hughes.

Room with sea view was very good and staff friendly and helpful. The outstanding feature of our 3 night stay was the standard of the restaurant - we ate there on two nights and were most impressed with the food. We will be returning!

My wife & I just returned from an enjoyable & restful three night Holiday Auction stay at the Patio motel & restaurant.
