The First Landing Motel in Port Lincoln has rebranded as the Shaen Street Motel & Café following a refurbishment, adding a three-bedroom cottage and espresso bar to its offering.

Throughout the refurbishment, the motel has stayed close to its mid-century roots.

If you’ve ever daydreamed about sleeping in a four-poster bed (like Bridgerton or Harry Potter), this quaint motel has you covered.

It features one in every room!

The motel is also located just 100m from the historical first landing site, where the first European settlers came ashore in 1839.

But despite the historical connections, the espresso bar onsite is a very modern addition.

Enjoy a coffee in their beautiful garden, with renovations currently underway to make a cosy winter space with a gas log fireplace.

Large groups can also hire the three-bedroom Angas St Cottage, with its private outdoor dining area and BBQ facilities offering a home away from home.

The motel’s revamp has breathed fresh life into the property.
