If it will be your first time to visit Port Elliot South Australia, it may seem daunting looking for an accommodation as there are not much on offer on the first impression. Googling for a hotel will even yield limited results. Thus, in this post, I will share with you various Port Elliot accommodation options you can take depending on your preference.
Where to Stay in Port Elliot SA
For solo travellers and backpackers, I am pretty sure you will love the Port Elliot Beach House (YHA). This brick mansion offer dormitory or mixed bed rooms with lockers and bunk beds. The kitchen and living room is a common area.
The main advantage in staying here is your proximity to the Obelisk towards the Rocky Bay. Meanwhile, a walk towards the Strand road will lead you to the heart of town where shops are. To book, you can use Booking.com and try our link to grab a $20 travel refund on your stay.
Port Elliot Accommodation for Family Travellers
However, if you are a travelling family with kids like we do, Port Elliot Holiday Rentals are a great choice. We usually book via Booking.com and choose among The Dolphin Apartment, the Calypso at Port Elliot, the Neptune, Meridian or the Nautilus at Port Elliot.
Why I recommend these “Encounter Bay Holiday Rentals“? It is because of their ultimate beachfront location and amenities! They are overlooking the Horseshoe Bay and Little Sisters little island, the playground, Flying Fish Cafe, and the breathtaking Rocky Bay.
They are basically next to everything we love in Port Elliot! In addition, we are happy to have access to barbeque and cooking facilities if we want to. Every holiday feels like home. Plus there is privacy in these spaces.
On the one hand, if you are looking for a Port Elliot caravan park, the Big4 Port Elliot Holiday Park is the choice. This is a great option for family groups those going on a camping trip. It is a great little tourist park which features their own playground, barbeque facilities, picnic sheds and direct access to the beach on Horseshoe Bay. You can phone them at (08) 8554 2134 to book. The accommodation they offer can range from caravan parks, cabin, villa to holiday units.
Quiet Accommodation for Couples
Furthermore, for couples on a romantic get away or families that prefer a country quiet setting, I highly recommend Authenticity Health and Wellness Retreat. Staying here for a quiet moment would be lovely especially with spa treatments they offer.
- Authenticity Health and Wellness Retreat 14-30 Waterport Rd, Port Elliot South Australia; Tel No. (08) 8551 0200
If this sounds good to you, staying in the McCracken Country Club would even be great. This one is at Victor Harbour and is no longer in Port Elliot. However, this is just a few minutes drive to each other.
- McCracken Country Club McCracken Dr, Victor Harbor SA 5211 (08) 8554 2088
Yes, these two hotels are a bit far from the heart of Port Elliot and the beach.
If you want to stay in the heart of town, Port Elliot Accommodation Hotels include Hotel Elliot and the Royal Family Hotel will satisfy your requirements. Both are conveniently located along shops and restaurants in Port Elliot.
- Hotel Elliot: 35 The Strand, Port Elliot SA 5212; Tel No. (08) 8554 2218
- Royal Family Hotel: 32 North Terrace, Port Elliot SA 5212; Tel No. (08) 8554 2219
Yet, both are just a 15-25 minutes walk towards Horseshoe Bay and Port Elliot’s magnificent coast lines.
Lastly, you can also try out AirBnB for its various private room or unit options.
