Reviewed June 29, 2014

I had an enjoyable 4 nights' stay with these guys. For me the best thing was the convenience of their package tour which for a reasonable price included airport transfers, hire car, accommodation & breakfast and whale shark dive. Very friendly and helpful with good advice.
The hotel itself is just out of town but with a car is no trouble and most tours will pick you up from your hotel. I think they do restaurant drop offs in the evenings too.
The hotel is basic but perfectly adequate. It's not 5 star but significantly cheaper than 5 star so I was happy. It's clean and the beds are comfortable. There is a kitchinette in the room which was great for cooking a basic meal.
Breakfast was coffee / hot chocolate / tea (served with a smile) with a continental breakfast with cereals, yoghurt, fresh fruit and toast. Good pre-diving tucker..
Would recommend and happily stay again.

Don't let first impressions fool you. Yes it is an older building but has been re-furbished really well. The staff are friendly and very obliging with heaps of local knowledge on places to see and things to do. The package deal that includes airport transfers, car hire etc, is an excellent option. Everything went smoothly and the lady driving the transfers van had heaps of great suggestions for restaurants and lots of info about Exmouth. The hotel is a few minutes out of town which makes it a quiet place to sleep and shorter drive to the Ningaloo area. Motel room was quite large and the bathroom facilities were very modern and spotlessly clean.

My partner and I stayed at the Sea Breeze resort in June, as part of a trip up the coast. I cannot thank the wonderful staff enough for making our stay such a special one - they helped my family arrange a birthday surprise from the other side of the world, which meant everything to me! The hotel itself is clean and comfortable. Given we had some bad weather it was actually quite nice to stay in for a day and have facilities to make a nice breakfast, and Foxtel to keep us entertained. Although the hotel is slightly outside of the town centre, this really is not a problem - it's closer to the national park, and they also provide a shuttle into town for dinner. All in all, we really enjoyed this hotel and cannot thank Nadja and Axel enough for making our stay a great one.

Thank you Amanda! Your stay was one of the more emotional we had. First thing, it all worked out great, we were partner in crime with your parents and in laws to surprise you on your birthday! The the weather turned bad and you missed out on the Whale Shark Experience! We did what we could and we would have changed the weather for you if we could. Leaving in tears had us all going on the waterish side and we are all hoping that you will come back some time soon to have this trip of a life time. You were so unlucky and your review means the world to us! Thank you so much and if anyone had a reason to spit the dummy you had! Yet you chose to make the most of it and didn;t blame anyone! Please keep up your great friendly happy character! Next time you will have more luck! I am sure of that! See you back soon! Axel

... is that this place is a converted military barracks, so think brutalist breezeblock architecture and old school decor. Once you've gotten over your initial surprise, this isn't too bad (and can be quirky at times) but pretty it ain't.

They have tried to keep many of the original fittings... which is cute but means that the aircon is noisy and smells fusty and the rooms somewhat brutal in style.

The staff are friendly and helpful, but we are still somewhat mystified that it' rated #1 in Exmouth. We went to the Novotel for dinner one night which looked much nicer!

Thank you for your review! I think you are one of these Tripadvisor Victims, who only look at the position of the property and not doing your research or make the effort to read actually the reviews.
I / we completely disagree with your headline! We are brutally honest about our location, not only that, we are extremely proud of having achieved the impossible. An active successful resort within and active Naval Base! This is unique in the world! The building is heritage listed and we like to keep as much of the original fittings, fixtures and "originality". Yet the conversion to a modern 4 star resort is a challenge in the best of location, yet in remote WA. It is a credit to my family and staff that we are where we are. We have a total commitment to customer service which earned 4 Awards of Excellence in a row and the No1 position over the last 5 years on Tripadvisor.
Please read the reviews and make only a booking decision once you are convinced that you get what you expect. I think the best way is to call up the properties and clarify your questions and book direct. Kind regards Axel

We went to Exmouth mainly to see the Whale Sharks. This hotel had the best deal we could find for an all in one package. They have airport transfers, room, breakfast, car and whale shark packages, and supply all the snorkelling gear you need for you to do your own exploring, all included in the price. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, Nadja and Axel, and they do have really great local knowledge. The room was comfortable and clean, it doesn't have 5 star rooms but they have what you need to be comfortable. It's quiet and the 5 mins drive from town is no real issue, in fact it's closer than the others to the National Park attractions. We would have no hesitation in staying again. Mark and Kerry

Thank you Mark and Kerry, it was great having you and love to have you back soon.
Thank you for pointing out that our location is rather an advantage. Just depends what you need and you are after. Our location and place is not for everybody and we do not claim 5 star in our hardware. What we aim for is 5 star service in a world unique property in one of the best spots in the world! Ningaloo! We love it here and would change it for the world.
Hope you can make it back soon!

A friend and I were stranded when we lost our car key. After calling a few hotels around town we spoke to Nadja from Sea Breeze who kindly offered to pick us up and bring us to the hotel as it was quite late and no taxis were operating. Axel generously helped us arrange the delivery of our spare key the next morning (with help from Jan at Europcar), and Fede dropped us back at the car. Nothing is too much trouble, and the friendliness of the staff is second to none.

It was clear to me in observing the treatment of other guests while waiting in the foyer that this level of service and kindness is extended to all guests at Sea Breeze.

The accommodation was clean and comfortable.

Immediate help, quick thinking, quick action, local knowledge and connection result in a very quick fix of the problem and the guests are happy!
