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.

This was a great find. We stayed here as an overnight on our way across Australia and it was a wonderful stop. The owners were very friendly and extremely helpful. We had a couple of small issues which were quickly and satisfactorily. The room was very large, clean with a comfortable bed and good hot shower. Free breakfast which was... More

LOCATION: Good location. A short walk to the restaurants and grocery stores, and only 240 meters to the excellent Seaview Indian Traditional restaurant. Free outdoor car park. HOTEL: Fast, no-fuss check in. Big room. Bright. Good A/C. A bit hard beds. Good pillows. Low shower water pressure. Good electric blanket. Free WIFI.

An overnight stay in Portland turned into an experience well worth having. We came down to visit old friends who recommended this motel. Cathie and her husband were very welcoming and friendly. Large room, clean and comfortable with excellent heating (it was freezing outside), the beds were clean and very comfy - we had a good night's sleep after a... More

Stayed here with my partner. Rooms are huge compared to most city hotels. We stayed in room 9 I think. An older style but spotlessly clean. Good shower/bathroom. Good lighting in room. Excellent blockout for sleeping in. Continental breakfast supplied in basket which was a nice idea, so prepared it when needed. Micro, kettle, toaster, etc. would recommend to others.... More

We were travelling through from Melbourne on our return home in SA on a family driving holiday and chose Portland for the ANZAC Day Dawn Service. Chose this motel for the value for money and the location (close to a choice of eating places and close to the Dawn Service. A good choice, as it was close to all we... More
