Pleasure to have a table to sit down at to eat tea. Room very nice. Heater quickly warmed the room. Late check in available. The builders behind motel very considerate. No noise until after 8am and even then could only just hear them.

We were looking for a clean and reasonably priced motel in Portland, and this suited our needs. The hosts are very friendly and welcoming. The accommodation is spacious and clean, you can't ask for more than that at this price...oh, and there was free wifi for each guest (I could hardly believe it, having seen other motels charge for it!)...

The room was large and quiet with parking directly outside the room. The carpet was worn. It looked like it had been painted but the cream ceilings and pale green walls are a little old fashioned. Comfortable for a night. Walking distance to restaurants, supermarket and pub. Wifi was free for 500MB with password for 1 device. It was quite... More

Visited Portland for one night only. Room was great! Clean, spacious, good location, quiet area, friendly owners! Not far to walk to the beach and eating places. Bonus to have koalas up in the gum trees to watch in the morning (not guaranteed to be there all the time though!) Great place to stay in Portland!

Great motel! We only stayed one night as we were passing through on our way towards Melbourne. The staff were so helpful and friendly. We had a room at the back and it was nice. I would definitely stay again.
