Owners were very friendly, helpful and accommodating of late check in. Fenced so your car is safe. Big room and bathroom. Comfortably furnished with nice extras like a welcome info tray, biscuits for your coffee and mints. Well priced.

Unfortunately we could only stay one night at this Motel. We found the owner very pleasant & helpful. He went out of his way to make us feel welcome. We stayed in a cabin style unit. Which was rather new, very tastefully decorated and a pleasure to stay at. We would recommend this accommodation to anyone.

My husband and I recently spent a night here while travelling around Victoria. The owners are very friendly and rooms are huge, so is the bathroom. Nice décor and spotlessly clean. It is situated right on the main road and therefore gets a bit of traffic noise. We asked for a room to the side which was luckily available, as... More

Motel was easy to find. This was a basic style motel, but quite comfortable and all that you need for a nights stay was provided and all was very clean. Owner was very friendly and welcoming. In Geelong, but in its most southern suburb, so close to Torquay and the start of the Great Ocean Road. 24 hour Kmart is... More

Grovedale was our first point of call in lovely Victoria. After flying in to Avalon airport, we decided it was a good starting point to explore the Great Ocean Road. We were pleasantly surprised with the location and proximity to Torquay, and received a warm welcome on arrival. You can really tell this place is a family run motel, which... More

During our travel through Great Ocean Drive to Queenscliff - Sorrento, we stayed one night over here. We stayed in 2 bedroom family room for $215. This motel is old one but not bad to stay for one night. Maintenance of the room is ok but management should consider some maintenance e.g bathroom handle screws are not fit properly etc...... More
