What a great asset Anya is on Reception. She was so welcoming and informed. It is very well appointed and we appreciated the fresh milk - a rarity these days at motels. Fee wi-fi was a real bonus. We would certainly recommend this motel as being clean, friendly and convenient.

Location and Reception were good. Room was clean. There were unsteady flow of hot water showers. Sometimes cold and sometimes very hot. Toilet flush gave out some funny noise. I guess we were being unlucky.

Teriffic! What a location! The owner was a beautiful person and a great receptionist and host. All our questions were responded to promptly and nothing seemed "too hard". It was a pleasure to feel comfortable in our surrounds. Good job guys, we will be back!

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night..wish we could have stayed longer at this nice quaint little town and lovely hotel. We arrived at the hotel quite late, abt 6pm and was greeted at the reception by a very warm and friendly lady who made us feel very welcomed and she even recommended to us where to eat... More

A friendly, easy place with clean and well set up rooms. It's within walking distance of the main part of town, and is right across the road from the beach. We had a good night's sleep in their comfortable bed and were able to get away early in the morning.

We had a tiring day's driving in the Otway Ranges and along the coast, arrived back feeling very satisfied to a warm welcome and friendly talk - Thankyou for the wine, greatly appreciated. The apartment is in great location, wouldn't go past it, especially in summer where you can step out for glorious walks and sit on balcony for breakfast... More

We stayed in a two-bedroom ocean view apartment. The views were superb and we enjoyed the spacious, clean space and the comfortable beds. We were given helpful advice on where to eat and what to see. Would definitely stay there again.
