Went here as a part of trip along Great Ocean Road. Scenery beautiful. Great views over harbour from front verandah. Port Campbell only small town so easy to walk to anywhere from motel .. No need to drive. Staff helpful. Room larger than usual. Booked on same day so room choice limited. My own fault. There are nicer ones available.... More

The man at reception was very friendly and helpful to us with all of our needs and questions. He provided us with a dinner restaurant recommendation, which turned out to be excellent. He also had a wonderful sense of humor. We also liked that the hotel has a large selection of free DVDs to loan. We had a fantastic view... More

We drove down from Adelaide and spent three days exploring this "Orsum" area of the Victorian coast, we based ourselves at the Loch Ard Motor Inn. Our unit was right on the corner with views of the harbor, the pub across the road done the most Orsum meals. In fact the profile picture for this place would of been taken... More

One night stopover on way to Twelve Apostles. Motel room was much nicer and bigger than anticipated. Nice view of bay from front verandah, and only short walk to restaurants and park walks (actually, everything is only a short walk because Port Campbell is a tiny place.). No wifi available which was a pain, but overall a pleasant stay.

We stayed for one night on our way through and it was fabulous, right in the heart of the town, perfect location for a walk to all the local restaurants. Our room had a lovely relaxing spa for two, and a balcony deck to watch the sun set, perfect!!

Impression – we booked with another motel but got moved here as there was a problem with our first place. Online it doesn't look great but was more impressed when we got there. Staff – Margaret was really helpful and approachable and answered any question we threw at her. Location – brilliant, right in the centre of town. About a... More

They take advantage of their location but the room looked outdated and what was worst was the bathroom with somewhat of a bad smell that you would not expext for AUD 150 per night. I would look around for other options. Wifi worked ok and the lady at reception was ok.

We stayed with our three teenage boys as a one night stopover in a two bedroom unit. A bunk and a single meant no trundle which was great. No view but the unit was spacious and had a fully equipped kitchen and full sized fridge so we could eat in. There's a very convenient general store but also lots of... More

The friendly chap on reception, the electric bed blankets and the central location were the only real positives. If your travelling the Great Ocean Road (GOR) stay in Lorne, Warrnambool or Port Fairy. This motel was a lot of money for a load of old rope! It seems that Port Campbell charges way more for poor quality accommodation than other... More
