Recently stayed the weekend at the Beachcomber and had a great experience. The location was relaxingly quite yet only short walk to beach, restaurants and pub. The facilities were great and cleauunliness exceptional as was the hospitality of owners Alison & Chris. We have stayed in many accomodation facilities along the Great Ocean Road and would rate the Beachcomber among... More

Friendly reception on checking in. The room was clean, and very up to date with everything you need. The bed was comfortable. However, it could do with some shelving to put toiletries on. The walls were quite thin so you could hear people talking from next door. The motel is in a very good position, being just five minutes walk... More

We recently stayed at the beachcomber & found Alison & Chris to be very friendly & welcoming, the rooms were very clean & cosy. We initially were staying for 10 nights but decided to stay on for another 4, but unfortunately they were fully booked so we had to find somewhere else. We ended up staying at 1 of the... More

This place was amazing. Less than 5 minute walk to the beach, shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes this place is a little gem. Immaculately clean room and bathroom, very friendly helpful owners, and the perfect place to stay for peace and quiet. Me and my partner Tristan stayed here as our first stop along the great ocean road and could... More

We had a friendly welcome on arrival. The room was clean, but small with thin walls so we could hear the people talking next door. Good size fridge, toaster, facilities for an in room breakfast but the basin was tiny so very difficult to wash dishes and nowhere to put toiletries. The outlook was a fence. Overall it was quite...

My husband and I (from New York) and our daughter and future son-in law (from Melbourne) had 2 rooms for 2 nights, in mid-January 2016, while we were vacationing along the Great Ocean Road.This is not just your average motel, unremarkable, devoid of character, and ordinary. From the moment of check-in the owners, Chris and Alison, were friendly , warm... More

Was pleased with the accommodation as we where touring the great ocean road and passing through. We booked in advance and where given a room with a double and a single bed which sufficed. There was a fridge, tea and coffee bathroom was satisfactory and as it was a little chilly on the night time a heater. We where given... More

We've been here for 3 nights. The place is very clean and it's in a very nice and quite location. Also very near to the center of this town/village. We would recomend it to anyone. You can park a car next to your room.
