I booked a weekend stay at Portside Motel before arriving to Australia. After exchanging few emails with the owners and telling them we would be arriving late as we needed to spend some time at the Twelves Apostles. They confirmed our booking and wished us welcome to lovely Port Campbell. After a dizzying drive along the Great Ocean Rd, we... More

Lovely friendly welcome to this comfortable motel in Port Campbell. Nice spacious room (#2) with cosy private terrace. Good bathroom and nice decor for room. Small kitchen facilities. Easy walk (5min) into town for great restaurants and breakfast. Good value for money. Heating worked well as did TV. We only stayed 1 night but we would definitely return.

Josie was wonderful thru the phone, and we knew it's going to be a great experience. Received an email closer to the date of our arrival telling us the important stuff that we needed to know. We arrive almost as the reception is closing. Gave them a call few hours before to say I may be late for check-in and... More

Bugs were also in the apartment since the windows were left open. Heat from the shower was hard to control, the WiFi did... More

Your comments have really brought home to us how we must make certain that our relief staff are fully briefed on the expectations we have of them and representing our motel. Unfortunately we were away at a family... More

It was after a long drive and was looking forward to checking in to the motel which is rated #1 in Port Campbell.. turned out to be a disappointment. The wifi was not working, tv wasnt working either. The apartment had a door leading... More

Hi Corrine. Thank you for your candid comments. We are sorry to hear that your experience and Joyce Lim's experience who was traveling with you, wasn't up to our usual standard. We apologize for the door between the apartment and Reception being left unlocked. We lock it from our side for security reasons also as we do not want guests... More

The place was great. We really enjoyed our stay. Josie was incredibly nice and gave us great recommendations for meals and things to do. Thank you. Port Campbell is nice quiet town. Portside Motel is like a 2 or 3 minute drive from the coast.

The landlord couple were very friendly and thoughtful. We hadn't been to the room, air conditioning had already opened, it felt very warm as soon as we entered the room , The room was very clean and comfortable. Because we also rented a car travel four days, so male host drove all the way up with us, he was a... More
