We stay here in Dec 2016 for 2 nights. The hotel is on the edge of town but a short drive to the centre. The pool was fantastic for the children and the adults. The food isn't cheap but is worth the money... try the wagyu burger! We stayed in a 2 bedroom sea view apartment which we couldn't fault.... More

We came to exmouth for the xmas break and organized Christmas lunch at manta rays. The food was fantastic and the view was just as good. Comfy and reasonable prices also. I recommend a stop over.

The Location and atmosphere here could be great. The pond near the bar is a nice touch. The Bar staff seem to forget that the customers can see and hear the way they speak to each other which spoils the atmosphere. Generally overpriced.

Its a pretty view over the pool and the bay. The service is very good and the quality of the food is very good. Portions are sizeable. But it has no soul and it is quite expensive. The food and atmosphere is very grown up though to be fair not stuck up. Its hard to describe why I don't love... More

Set in the Novotel Hotel this restaurant offers perfectly reasonable food - nothing exception, but good enough to enjoy. We took the fish and chips and the channa masala with a bottle of house red. The food was fine, the wine really good, and the service absolutely excellent. At a cost of 121 Australian Dollars (including 2 further drinks) the... More

We found the service and quality of food to be pinnacle experience we had in the restaurant scene at Exmouth. The staff were so friendly, attentive and courteous that the food almost became a secondary consideration.

We had a lovely romantic evening here. The restaurant was fully booked so we were seated on the couches over looking the pool and ocean. It felt quite private as everyone was behind us and were able to make ourselves very comfy with all the cushions. Our meals were delicious and generously portioned. The service was friendly and attentive. Great... More

Had dinner here on the same night as a wedding was held. The speeches were intrusive. The food was good but nothing special given the prices. Service was however excellent

We had dinner and lunch here while we were staying at the Novotel . Dinner and lunch is in the restaurant that looks over the pool and water. You can sit outside if the weather is nice. The cocktails are very nice with a good selection. They also have a good wine menu and a good selection of wine by... More
