The Coastview Motor Inn is a wonderful destination for a weekend away or longer term holiday. The staff are friendly, the rooms are clean and tasteful, the prices are more than reasonable and it's perfect for the family or a romantic getaway.
Set right on the esplanade of Port Noarlunga South, you're faced with complete open views from the Port Noarlunga jetty down toward the southern coast.
There is a fenced playground and under-cover picnic table directly across the road, with direct stair access down to the sandy beach. Bike, kayak and paddle board hire is available or simply sit back and enjoy some fishing.
The rooms are absolutely huge and completely self-contained with a full size fridge, stove top, microwave and cookware. Having the kitchen definitely makes it cheaper if you are holidaying with the family or for a longer period, because you are not constantly eating out or buying takeaway.
In saying that though, the restaurants and eateries nearby are fabulous. Port Noarlunga central is only minutes away, or if you are planning a night out, it costs roughly $10 for the taxi trip.
The Port Noarlunga Hotel have great bistro meals, 8ball, TAB and weekend entertainment. f you prefer the atmosphere of themed cafe's, then you will love the international dishes, tapas and burgers at Agatha's Licensed Cafe or the quirky Fleurieu Pantry.
While you are there do not miss Beck's Bakehouse or Port Noarlunga Fish and Chips, which arguably have the best crumbed prawns I have ever tasted.
Hortas Restaurant is perfect for a special occasion or romantic dinner with its stylish beachfront balcony setting and modern Australian dishes or Portuguese tapas.
Along with those mentioned above, you will also find many more cafe's, Indian or Chinese takeaway, pizza houses and restaurants.
All in all, our recent stay at Coastview Motor Inn was thoroughly enjoyable for a weekend getaway and we will definitely be going back with the girls for a family weekend soon.
