The room was nice and private with a small patio and was close enough to both the town and the 12 apostles. It was well equipped. The host was very friendly and helpful. It provided good value and a comfortable stay.

If you have the time stay here 2 nights. I wish I did. Sweet clean room with patio that I wish I could have sat on for awhile and read my book. Owners are extremely helpful they pointed us to a wonderful place to get dinner and how get to Wreck Beach for a great walk. I recommend highly.

We were doing the Great Ocean Drive / road trip to Adelaide, and had difficulty booking our nightly stopover points in the height of summer. We came across this motel on the web and booked two double rooms. Portside itself has limited attractions but we could not fault the motel in that it appeared exactly as stated on the website...

Warm welcome with a huge spacious room and a comprehensive kitchenette. Close to the town centre and the perfect place to stay when visiting the Great Ocean Road. Really good value for money. Wish we could have stayed longer.

We stayed here for 1 night while we visited the 12 apostles. The motel was clean and had everything we needed. Bed was comfy and rooms are spacious. Owners were really friendly and check in was easy. For a 3 star motel you can't ask for anything more. Port Campbell is a quant little seaside town and definitely the place... More

Fantastic location, on the Main Street, but away from the noise. Short walk to the pub, restaurants, shops and of course the beach. Right in the middle of the Great Ocean Road it's an easy drive to all the iconic sights. Rooms are ageing, but immaculately clean and comfortable. TV, microwave, toaster, kettle and cutlery all provided. Great base to... More

We only stayed one night, as a stop off while driving the Great Ocean Road, so weren't looking for anything too elaborate. Portside Motel did the trick nicely: friendly and helpful owners, clean and spacious room (though the bathroom was a bit lacking in surfaces to put stuff on), walking distance to restaurant etc.

We were a group of 11 friends driving the Great Ocean Road. Port Campbell is a charming town and the ideal place to use as an overnight while exploring the national park. When we arrived, Josie, was so sweet and showed us on the map what to check out in town for food, etc. She also gave us tips on... More

Our booking at the Portside Motel was to provide a two day stopover between holidays in Melbourne and visiting friends near Robe on the way back to Adelaide. We had never visited Port Campbell before and having spent twenty minutes finding a car park for lunch in Lorne earlier that day the relative tranquility of Port Campbell was welcomed. When... More
