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!

Top spot for a motel we had a beautiful view, the room was comfortable but the bathroom a bit outdated and was not cleaned very well. As I previously cleaned in a hotel for 15 years and a Hospital for 7 years the cleanliness was not up to scratch but this is all I can fault about our room. We... More

Great little motel in Whyalla. Clean rooms, friendly service, comfy beds.. And joined to a great restaurant! Very close to a cafe at the beach and some rooms have ocean views too. Well worth the price if staying in Whyalla, and a close taxi ride to the Eyre hotel also. We will be back!

Great location as we had one of the 'updated' front rooms with sea views. Although the bathroom had been updated and the room painted it was still a bit 'tired'.

I came to the Foreshore during a brief business stay in August. The location of the hotel is fabulous, and the restaurant is fantastic. The rooms however leave something to be desired.
