Kids Play Area

On our last visit to Saltwater Creek Hotel the kids play area in the restaurant had been taken away due to COVID. As far as we know it has not returned.

Toddler Review

We recommend Saltwater Creek Hotel as they have good meals at a good price for families looking to eat out. They have lunch and dinner deals for every day of the week and Kids Eat Free on Monday nights.

Saltwater Creek Hotel is just off the M1 at Helensvale opposite Movie World. If you are looking for a family friendly meal after a visit to the theme parks on the Northern Gold Coast I would recommend stopping into Saltwater Creek Hotel.

Hopefully they will bring back their kids play area and it will be an even friendlier toddler friendly eats option on the Gold Coast.


What to pack (suggestions)

  • Snacks (back-up if there are any meal delays) 
  • Wipes for spills and toddler clean-up
