Everything was to our satisfaction. Room was clean and corresponded with the description on the website. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We have enjoyed our short stay. Perfect accommodation for a trip to the Twelve Apostles and the Ocean Road it self. Only a short drive from the Highlights.

The room/bathroom were clean, the bed comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with the... More

A quality place to stay, the room was clean and tidy and the location is excellent with easy walking distance to everywhere in town. The staff were friendly and very pleasant to deal with. We would definitely stay again if we are back in the area.

Well located, quiet, clean, well equipped and an easy short walk to waterfront and places to dine. Very private, we didn't really know anyone else was staying at the motel. The local magpies are friendly as they're fed by the motel owners but don't leave your room door open or they'll steal the biscuits provided.

The unit/apartment was clean, spacious and well furnished. It had wooden floors, a fully equipped kitchen, a BBQ area, separate dining and lounge, a double bed and two single beds,... More

Upon our arrival we were given a warm welcome from John. During our check in John recommended a plan of attack for visiting the numerous sites along the Great Ocean Road the following morning, together with directions to return to Melbourne inland which was appreciated. He also provided suggestions for our evening meal. After a long drive from Melbourne it... More

We had a short and sweet stay in Portside Motel - clean, friendly, and realy weel positioned an easy drive from the highlights of the Ocean Road. We had a lovely breakfast and dinner in the town overlooking the bay. A good value stop over.

With spacious rooms, this motel is a great option for people looking for a comfortable place to stay during their visit to the 12 apostles. Fair price and very friendly staff. Portside Motel is located just 10 minutes away from the 12 apostles visitor facilities.

We liked the best the first impressions, and made us settled and relaxed. Tips given for itinerary for the day were helpful. Service and communication were excellent for all questions we have had. Ben
