The hotel has a magnificent location looking down the beach and within walking distance to the local store and river. That's where the magnificence ends. The rooms are circa 1970 and in need of a complete refurbishment. Everything about them is old and dated. The room construction is lightweight and adjacent room sounds are easily heard. Worse still the commercial... More

We stayed at Wye River on our trip along the Great Ocean Road. The location is stunning with amazing views over the ocean. We were disappointed with the room which was rather basic, but most concerned that the rear access door to the room wasn't secure and did not lock. Wifi was very patchy. The continental breakfast was a nice... More

I don't know what other reviewers were expecting when they booked the Wye, you can see on the website it's a basic room so what you see is what you get. The exceptional thing about this hotel is obvious - it's the view and wonderful proximity to Wye River beach. The room itself is clean, the bed comfy and you... More

I have been to the Wye river hotel 3 times now and every time the service is terrible. Last time there was only 3 other customers and maybe 6 staff members. We had to wait 5 mins for one bar members to even acknowledge us while he finished making coffee for the rest of the staff. We then went to... More

Beware - did not live up to expectations based on photos from 'Wye Beach Hotel' home page. Motel room accommodation hugely inadequate for a romantic getaway to celebrate a wedding anniversary. It is promoted as a great spot with a great view but it is one of many along the Great Ocean Road. The price of the room with a... More

Between Melbourne and Adelaide, down the Great Ocean Rd, this was the best stop for us . Not a big place, Wye river, with maybe a couple of dozen houses tucked in the bush, and a hotel overlooking the bay. A nice little surf running, and if you ask nicely you could even get to use a surfboard stashed out... More

Just what we were after. A not too fancy, relaxing well run pub with good food and an excellent drink range. This place can be as relaxed as you want it to be depending on where you sit. Lots of hard working staff and room for a good number of drinkers and diners. Everything from cafe to more formal dining,... More

Simply wonderful view from the room and balcony, can even lay in bed and see the ocean. Sleeping at night to sounds of crashing waves. very basic motel room, clean and attempts made to upgrade with attractive bed covering, leather sofa and some modern prints. Clean and comfortable for a short stay. Management really need to replace ancient television, an... More

We stayed for a night during our trip on the Great Ocean Road. The rooms were very basic and the sofas and beds could so with an update. The mattresses were worn out and the sofa cushions need new covers. The views were superb and the location is ideal for a stop over. Unfortunately the restaurant was closed when we... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming. The meals were good; the lamb shanks were absolutely delicious. The view was stunning and it was nice in bed listening to the waves. We will return!
