Stayed only one night on trip along the great ocean road. Friendly welcome by staff and advice on local takeaways with good reputation. Lovely room which was very clean. Excellent kitchenette facilities, dining area and comfortable sitting room. Firm bed, lots of blankets for the cold with excellent bathroom facilities. No views but very welcome for road travellers.

Stayed for one night after riding the great ocean road. The motel is a bit out of town so you need a vehicle to get anywhere for dinner or to go out. The reception was very friendly and quick. The room was average for this type of motel. Nothing was wrong but nothing stood out either. Bed was comfy, shower... More

Tropicana is a traditional motel. Unlike most of the accommodation in this summer tourist seaside town, rooms are affordable and clean. Good kettle, modern working TV and clean rooms. Bedding was nice and clean, carpet well vacuumed and the bathrooms were well cleaned. The staff at reception were very helpful and friendly, even finding us a room when we wanted... More

In a town that is renowned as a tourist spot it's hard to find an average motel. There's plenty of backpackers and holiday houses as well as a few 5* resorts, but for a business trip I just want a normal motel. And that's what the Torquay Tropicana is. An average country motel. Comfortable but not flash. It's clean and... More

Needed a place to that night phoned in on our way & booked a Spa suite, not Spa very slow to get fired up. Look this place needs an update getting a bit old & tired decor & bathroom. I think there are better options around but it served it purpose. But the friendly owners were fantastic.

One thing to remember with this place , it's original . The only thing that seems to have been updated over the years is the TV , although there is still an Analog in the games room . In all fairness it is probably value for money . Don't expect a $300 per night place , cos you will be... More

The rooms are spacious and quiet providing us with a good nights rest after a day driving up the Great Ocean Road in some rather foul weather. The reception desk service was prompt and friendly and I would happily return if passing through Torquay again.
