Good location - but over priced for the offering
The Foreshore hotel has one thing going for it - the foreshore. Lovely to be close to the sea and if you booked the right room you can see it out the window. But other than that it is tired and dated and over priced for what you get. I appreciate they are going to knock it over and build a big new place soon but until then, this place is over priced for the level of comfort. The bed noisy, fan in bathroom nearly caught fire, shower leaked and bathroom like something out of the 1960s.

Overnight stay to break up a journey
After spending a week in Eyre Peninsula, I stayed at the Foreshore to break up my return drive to Adelaide. Having stayed here before, I knew it would be a pleasant experience. Being a weekend, the restaurant and reception were closed, so I did not have an opportunity to meet with the staff or dine locally. The rooms are very much your typical motor inn, good value with pleasant condition. While the Foreshore cafe no longer seems to be open (at least nor on weekends), I was able to walk to and from the local pubs 10-15 minutes away My ground floor room was quiet and very little passing traffic, and I was able to walk the shore and nearby Ada Ryan Gardens safely and comfortably. Will be looking forward to visiting after the planned redevelopment, knowing it is good value already,

Outdated, cups and glass were small - couldn’t have a coffee in the morning. Room smelt funny. Lack of designated parking and very noisy. Expensive for what it was!
