We stayed her just the one night as we were passing through. The owners were extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful!! The free wifi was a great bonus for the kids, enabling them to calm down from a full day. Breakfast was delicious and still hot! Great, clean room and not noisy at all (and I am a light sleeper!)

We arrived at the motel after 8pm following a short drive from Melbourne. Checked in was a breeze. We stayed in Apartment 3 which is located on the ground floor. If you have a lot of luggage, try asking for a unit on the ground floor as units on the first floor can only be reached via staircase. Room is... More

The lady who seems to be an owner was very kind and the room was very clean. And fresh smell from the linens, which was very delightful

We had a quick stopover at this motel before starting the Great Ocean Road. We thought it was a very average experience. The room was clean, the receptionist not very friendly, the bed okay and the heating noisy but sufficient. Not bad for a quick stopover, but definitely not that good either.

Yes, this motel is a bit dated. But it was clean and had FREE WIFI. We only needed it for one night but could have stayed for a few. Seems the new owners are a family of at least three and were friendly and helpful. I enjoyed all the flowers in the yard.
