After a long drive the warm greeting and welcoming drinks with lively chat was so friendly. The comfort of the room and bed exceeded our expectation. Waking in the morning to the lovely sea vista kissed by the early sun was gorgeous. The motel restaurant was excellent - silver service with excellent wines. We will certainly come back and highly...

The location of this property is fantastic & the Whyalla Council are to be commended on their efforts on the foreshore area .. but the motor inn could do so much more to capitalise on their view.

On arrival, upgraded to an ocean view room, room immaculatly clean, loads of hot water (although shower curtains are notorious for sticking to you). The weather was appalling with ferocious winds and the door kept banging, but nothing a piece of card folded up couldn't sort out.

We had a wonderful meal, beginning with the most gorgeous and giant coconut prawns and progressing to tender lamb rack. A surprising find in a regional city, with superb meal and attentive and professional service.

This largish motel is quiet and close to everything. only lawn to the sandy beach. Weekend markets and music sometimes on the lawns. Very friendly and helpful service. Free WiFi and breakfast I like that is was central but not being buzzed by traffic - NO traffic noise!

There is more to Whyalla than many think. More
