Nice motel with good sized rooms at a good location. The bed was nice and firm, which was exactly what we needed after several of hours in the car. Really nice staff at the front desk who were able to give us some valuable pointers on what to see and when. :)

a very nice, spacious motel.Ideal for a longer stay but we only had 1 night.We were 2 couples ....4 senior adults. We were hoping to eat outside on the terrace but the birds were a real menace! so we had to keep the door closed. We had an early morning start so didn't know where to leave the key (no... More

We spent two nights here based on reviews from Trip Advisor. Our room was clean and comfortable. It was more than adequate for our stay and if I was to be picky to find some negatives there would only be a couple of things. The bathroom was very small with almost no place to put any toiletries. Also, there is... More

Stayed for 2 nights during our recent coastal drive. Very clean, quiet, and fantastic friendly service. Just a pleasant short stroll into town for dinner or a latte. Free wifi added to the experience, and friendly staff always happy to provide assistance. Fantastic. Would stay again.

To visit the 12 Apostles from Melbourne in a day is crazy, so this is a perfect stopover. The rooms were spotless and well appointed. The motel is perfectly situated: a short walk into town for the restaurants but quiet at night. The staff were warm and welcoming. I would strongly recommend.

We enjoyed our stay recently, close to town - Josie was a very welcoming host. After a long, hot drive - Portside was an oasis. We could walk down the road to have a relaxing dinner, and check out the little, very cute bay.

Stayed for one night in January 2015. The rooms was clean, comfortable and had all of the facilities we expected. Staff were easy to deal with.We were pleased with the location (close the main street but not too close). We would happily recommend.

Above-average motel, with lovely and very helpful owners. Extremely clean room with everything we needed. A perfect distance from town -- two minutes' walk, but away from the noise, especially at night. We enjoyed our stay at the Portside Motel very much.

The room was spacious, clean, comfortable and well equipped for self-catering. The service at check in and check out was fantastic - thanks for the local restaurant and 12 Apostles helicopter ride recommendations. We stayed during peak summer holiday time so the Port Campbell location was a great alternative to Apollo Bay in terms of location, availability and affordability.

This is a great little hotel, with well appointed and clean rooms. Just a few minutes walk into the centre of Port Campbell. We really enjoyed staying here. The Owners are extremely friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the local area. I would highly recommend anybody to stay here. The hotel is also a 5 minute drive to the famous Twelve... More
