Views were good and reasonably priced and although the owners can't control the weather they could take a few measures to ensure stays are more enjoyed. The wind wisseled through the the doorframe and constant knocking on the roof above the bathroom all night kept us awake. Worth the visit on a calm day. 😬🛌

Our compliments to the Chef. The food was wonderful. Unfortunately the service needs improvement. I'm sure summer season would prove better but the main staff seemed uninterested in us. Waited an hour and 15 for food had to go to bar to order another drink said they would bring it to table which we waited another ten minutes because the...

I am sure that this is an excellent place to stay, the locality is georgeous. Just be sure not to use trip advisor to book as the cancellation policy is way harsh and there are credit card charges for booking through the US, and nobody to talk to if you have any questions.

This Motel is positioned right on the beach front at Moonta Bay with all rooms having great view of the Gulf. We have stayed at this Motel several times and really love it.

Arrived in 38 degree heat to find a large well appointed room with marvellous views over the gulf and jetty. However the downside was that the sun also comes from that direction. The ageing air-conditioner had no hope coping, in fact it was not until 10:00pm it started making any appreciable difference. The windows did not open, which would have...

Room was massive with a small uncomfortable bed in it, the window was cracked, service at reception took around 20 minutes.. I had to ring the landline for someone to come out (yes, I rang the bell at reception) and the room smelt closed up. Views were great, service let it down.
