    Staff friendly, good restaurant food, and great location. Also good wifi. However room was stuffy - all windows locked up. Ants in the food area. Bathroom cramped and poorly designed (not the motel's fault.)

  • 8.0.Very good

    The room was nice with views to Ada Ryan Gardens and Whyalla marina, however, on hot days air con in room takes forever to chill as the air con is located at the entrance of room and the bed is on the other side. The wateredge restaurant onsite is overpriced and no quality. Paid $40 for Salmon which was tasteless. Certainly won’t dine in here

  • 4.0.Fair

    Front desk was very helpful after we were given a single room instead of a family room, then a room that wasn't cleaned. Room and building very old fashioned and not overly clean.

  • 6.0.Good

    The property is old, rooms have a musty smell? Bathroom drains may need a good clean out. Taps are old hard to turn off. I think owners are keeping it as clean as they can. They apparently are planning a complete new hotel on this sight. The Restaurant is lovely but expensive. Reception also clean. I did not ask but thought the reception and restaurant might be a newer build. Lovely views overlooking the bay. Also a delightful small botanical garden backing onto this property. Convenient location.

    Great location but dated and smelled on moisture. Could do with some furniture and bathroom upgrades. Also linen wasn’t well washed.

    Nice location on the Whyalla Foreshore. Rooms very clean. Could do with a upgrade in regards to the bathroom and heating. Great stay!

    The rooms are ok but the bathrooms are in need of updating. The quality of food was good but service was a little too attentive and the breakfast was a bit overpriced.
