My husband and I and our four children just enjoyed two nights at this motel. The owners and staff were very pleasant, friendly and helpful. Not many motels accommodate 4 children so it was lovely that they offered a trundle for our fourth. They were very welcoming on arrival and advised us of places to visit and events that were...

Now I have travelled extensively, and though I dont write a lot of reviews, I have to mark this down. This by far, is the best place I have ever stayed in, in all my travels. And I came about this place out of desperation because I needed accomodation at the very last minute. The owners were extremely friendly and... More

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
