Easy to find just off main road. Restaurants and Visitor Centre a 1 minute drive. Check in/out was a breeze and the room had the basic amenities and comfort for a pleasant if forgettable night's sleep. Questions of value apply to Australia in general so don't expect any luxury at the price.

Friendly owners, comfortable accommodation at an affordable price. The motel is one corner from the few restaurants that there are in the town. Quiet location even though on the main road. Comfortable king bed and enough space for two to move around easily, however, the bath is tiny. Many motels don't have a bath so at least there was one!

Spent a cold stormy night here and was very comfortable. We got a warm greeting at reception and quick service. The manager even loaned my husband an iPhone charger as he'd left his at home. Room was warm,clean and tidy. Free wifi. Would recommend.

We arrived at the Motel around 6.00pm, and the reception staff was waiting for us. The Motel location is good, and the staff was very kind and helpful, giving us a lot of information how we could occupy our time around the Great Ocean Road for the next day. We spent a night there, and the room was good, and... More

Needed to stay in Port Campbell over the quiet winter season for some work and enjoyed staying here. Rooms were clean, proprietor was friendly and would stay there again, especially over summer when it is a bit warmer! ;-)

Stay one night here on our Great Ocean Road trip. The hotel is located on the main street, near to restaurants. Upon arrival, the reception was warm and eager to provide us with the information on nearby eateries. We could park our car directly outside our room, which was a plus as we have some heavy luggages. Room was sufficiently... More

I stayed one evening at this motel. The room was very clean, spacious, and comfortable. It is really close to downtown (5 minute walk) to the restaurants and bars. It also had complimentary Wi-Fi. Highly recommend if you are visiting 12 Apostles and the other rock formations in the area. Plus the staff (Josie) was really friendly. I would stay... More

Large basic clean comfortable room with free wi-fi. Good location for stopover along the Great Ocean Road. Friendly and helpful owners with advice on where to eat and routes. Short walk into town but not much there.
