Booked one night on the basis of favorable trip advisor reviews. We chose Torquay as our first overnight stop and Port Campbell as our second overnight stop on our drive of the Great Ocean Road before heading back to Melbourne. Although this is an older motel style complex, it was updated / renovated and very well looked after, clean and... More

We booked only 1 night and we were pleasantly surprised by the room. It was clean and very spacious. Definitely recommend this motel if you are doing the Great Ocean Road as the location is perfect in Port Campbell. Close to 12 apostles, the arch and London bridge

Port Campbell is a perfect choice for an overnight stop on the Great Ocean Drive – very close to the best sights of the Apostles, London Bridge, Loch Ard Gorge, etc and about the right distance from Melbourne to allow for a full day of sightseeing before/after your stay. The Portside Motel offers very clean, spacious, nicely furnished rooms. In... More

After a day's drive along the great ocean road this was a great stopover. We arrived around 5 p.m. and only stayed 1 night. The motel is in a good location, nice and quiet, well equipped and very clean and comfortable. We were given lots of info and made to feel welcome when we arrived. We enjoyed dinner at 12... More

We, like others, stayed here on our drive along the Great Ocean Road. The room was spacious, as was the bathroom and came with a kitchen area. Additionally we had a small outside garden space which was great. We were warmly welcomed and given the low down on where to eat locally. Overall really impressed and if travelling that way... More

The room is just what you expect and the bed is very comfortable. Every room comes with a free parking and the staff was very friendly. Would definitely stay here again if I come back to the Great Ocean Road.

I brought 4 friends down with me from north QLD to drive from Adelaide to Melbourne along the Great Ocean Road. Stayed the night at Portside Motel. Hire two rooms. Staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and really well suited for what we needed and for a good price. Would certainly stay again.

We had the old "executive suite" (in name only). So it was a nice big room right at the front corner of the premises. Even though it was on the main road, it was very quiet. The room was very clean, the kitchen facilities more than adequate. The bed was extremely comfortable. There should be a bigger shelf in the... More

Valuable stay, suitble for family to do self-cook. Port compbell is a small town and have only a small supermarket. The Motel is a small, silence, clean motel which is better driving to here. Good motel for driving to the sites. Near to many sites.
