We had a bad experience here. We were charged an extra 60 dollars because we changed our booking. Excuse was she turned away others. The motel was not full for that night or the next , the landlady was guilty of sharp-practice. It was just a money grabbing for no justifiable reason

We had a 1 night stay at the Harbour View and enjoyed the experience. We had booked a harbour view room, which did indeed give an excellent view of the harbour. The room was well appointed and clean. The disappointing element was that the walk into the town, where you need to go for food etc, takes a good 15... More

Neat and tidy room in a lovely location, close to walking track, the harbour and town. Recently refurbished bathroom was great. A pool would be great, but that's only for people like me who are too lazy to get to the beach. Only other downside was that Austar wasn't working in our room, although that's not what we were there... More

The photos don't paint the real picture. It was clean but the rooms were outdated. Next to the road and street lighting comes straight through the front window. Yes the room has a view but couldn't match it with the website photo/s.

good location don't know whether i would go back to robe very quiet and a bit boring for me. may have got the small room because i got the deal of the net. I often wonder about those deals they give the hirer paying customers the better rooms

This motel is not close to the township, you need to drive or take a long walk. Only the really expensive premium rooms have views. The bathroom was small but the room itself was a reasonable size. Clean and presentable accommodation with very nice management. The area is very quiet and offers a good nights sleep.

Great view overlooking the ocean, parking at our door. Room was clean with all the amenities that we required. Helpful and friendly staff. Close to the beach and the town centre. Lovely surrounds and walking track.

Excellent service from all staff. Beautiful views. Highly recomend stopover on the great ocean road. Ideal for swimming. Staff are very knowledable of the area and know where the best places to eat are.
