Check in took 1 minute, we got our room which was clean and surprisingly very quite. having your car just in front of the door... More

Beachcomber is in a good location, short walk to the seafront. Check in friendly. Apartment clean, but with dust and dead insects in corners and widow ledges. Great to have a spa bath in the room! Bed comfy. FREE WIFI - remember to ask for the password at reception. Very austere signage about cleaning the kitchenette prior to check out.... More

Found the Beachcomber to be very clean, the staff were very welcoming and helpful. We had a BBQ and when we went to the office to see if the had any tongs they handed us a BBQ pack which contained tongs. Egg flip, fork as well as cooking spray, well done we don't normally get that service. Great location to... More

Arrived after starting our GOR trip. Helpful reception who directed us to a super Italian restaurant a short walk away. Clean and comfortable room if a little dated but totally adequate for our needs.

We payed $145 for a room with a double and single bed. The room was clean and nice. We could use a free wifi. Reading other review we found out... More

My partner and I spent the night here during a Great Ocean Road trip. Staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. Room was large and well priced - very clean and tidy. Quiet surrounds and easily accessible to town. Would be keen to stay here again.

Perfect stopping point for a drive from Melbourne up the Great Ocean Road! As others mentioned, it is off the main road, so quiet area. It is actually on a residential street, so the other reviews are right- very quite area, but nice 5 minute walk to the shops and restarants! Very good price on a room with a spa,... More

Great review by an even better person, thanks for your kind words. Yes the location is good as we don't get the traffic noise from the main road but as you comment we are still only a short stroll away. We have also just installed new free WIFI just days before Christmas which is working a treat and guests love... More

Stayed overnight at this nice quiet motel. Was very late getting in, so took an apartment which was perfect for our needs. Owner gave us a better rate as we did not want to use the spa. Very accommodating indeed . Would recommend

Thanks for taking the time to write a review & your kind words. Yes cleanliness is important to us as we realise the budget rooms are smaller. Thanks also for noting that at $105 it is a reasonable price during the warmer months on the busy Great Ocean Road. Trust you enjoyed your Australian trip and hope you visit our... More
