We selected this motel after reading all the positive reviews...not sure who wrote these or whether reviewers have low standards? Our room was old and sparsely fitted. The only views are when standing out front on the street. The back window could not be locked & mini blinds could not be closed. We have stayed in better motels for the... More

We recently had a 5 night stay at the Harbour View Motel. The rooms are of a good size for a multi-night stay and the owners, reception staff and cleaning ladies were terrific. They went out of their way to provide us with everything necessary to enhance our stay. The King Size bed was a bonus as was the kitchenette.... More

Harbor View Motel is handy to town without being in the middle. Rooms are clean, comfy with terrific kitchen nook for food storage and prep. Not great views but certainly quiet. Staff are excellent with lots of information about the area and attention to guests needs.

We recently stayed 3 nights in 2 adjoining rooms upstairs. Great view. The owners go out of their way to make everyone happy and their tip to dine at Sails was spot on. Robe is definitely a place you must stop. Lovely, safe beach and many interesting shops.

Everything was clean and tidy and looked newly refurbished.We were able to make our own breakfast and the laundry was a major bonus as we had... More

We have stayed at Robe Harbour View many times and keep returning. The owners are super friendly and helpful. You get free wifi and a free laundry to use if needed which is always appreciated. We book a room that does not have a view, however, you only need to walk across the road and sit in the park for... More

Only stayed here for one night. The accommodation was clean, and had everything we needed. The owners were very helpful and gave us lots of advise on where to eat and nice walks in the area. Good location, close to beach and restaurants.

Nice, but basic, clean accommodation in a good location. Staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms are very basic but clean. Would recommend seeing the new Robe aquarium with unusual creatures caught locally.
