This is the place to stop before or after your Great Ocean Road trip. Very quiet. You can always get great advice from the lady at the reception. Make sure to stop by The Twelve Apostles. It is jaw-dropping.

We visited the Motel with our parents who were visiting from overseas, and really found the place to be like home right from the word go. The rooms were really well appointed, and Josie was very courteous and accommodating. One could see that special care had gone into ensuring that all common areas including bathrooms and the kitchen were kept... More

Our family stayed in the two-bedroom unit one night after visiting the 12 Apostles on the Great Ocean Road. Josie gave us a warm welcome and local advice on best sunsets, meals, etc. away from the crowds. The unit is beautiful, clean, spacious, modern, well appointed and has an inviting patio. I wish we would've spent more than one night... More

I booked the Portside Motel on-line via Booking.com and therefore as with any on-line booking could only base my choice on reviews by other people. I was met by John who was very welcoming and gave good advice on what to see and where to eat. On entering my room I was amazed at the standard of cleanliness, clean is... More

This was kind of a quaint place. The room was clean and fairly large and had block walls. The kitchenette had a fridge, microwave, coffee pot, and toaster. There was an actual tub in the bathroom. The town was very quiet, so there wasn't any noise.

When we arrived at the motel, the staff who greeted us were really friendly. The room was exactly as described. Beds were comfortable, and the room temperature was nice and warm when we arrived. They provided clean towels, bathmats, hand towels, and soap for showering. Cosy and a short walking distance to the centre of Port Campbell. Will definitely recommend... More

Beautiful place to stay - the accommodation was immaculate and very comfortable. Very spacious apartment which was brilliant as we were travelling with children. Excellent recommendations for eating out. Hosts were really nice and welcoming - would highly recommend this.

Stayed here for 1 night during our GOR trip. Was only looking for a clean and quiet motel to catch good sleep. This motel didn't disappoint at all. It comes with Microwave, kettle, fridge, TV etc. 2 minute walk from the Port campbell town where there are some restaurants and super market. The facilities in the motel are average so... More

Portside Motel has a good location, only 10-15 minutes drive to 12 apostoles and even shorter drive to Loch Ard Gorge. Port Campbell is a really small town and on Sunday night we had some difficulties to find a good place to eat and there is only a small convenience store in Port Campbell, but otherwise Port Campbell was a...
