Robe is a quaint little town on the water. Our room had a nice view of the harbor and was centrally located. Checked out in a rainstorm and management let use check out late. Good access to running and hiking paths.

My hubby and I stayed one night in a lovely room overlooking parklands and a beautiful little harbour. The motel is at the end of the town so it's very peaceful and quiet. The owners.were. Dry friendly and helpfull. Make sure you get a room with harbour views.

We try to stay at Robe Harbour View twice a year. Don and Robby are fantastic owner hosts and go above and beyond to make your stay as happy as possible. We stayed in a smaller room this time tucked in the rear of the complex. It did not have a view but it did not disappoint. There is a... More

We picked this place because of it's proximity to the spencer st station and the airport skybus. We were travelling with a new seven week old baby and found the one bed apartment a good option so one of us got sleep! Cot was provided and reception staff were helpful and friendly. It was very cold, so the extra blankets... More

We stayed in the upstairs harbour view room which was very clean and tidy although we felt it was not the best value for money in this area. Connecting to the free WIFI proved too difficult and frustrating. Overall the motel is a nice place to stay but for the price lacks atmosphere and finesse.

My partner and I stayed at the Harbour View Motel in June 2014 - firstly, the owners were absolutely fantastic. So kind and helpful. They pinpointed all the best spots for eating & sightseeing. Rooms were clean, neat and the location was very close to everything.

Harbour View Motel was comfortable and quiet. We stayed in their top room which was somewhat over priced at $230 per night, but probably on par with others in the area. We had a king size bed which was very comfortable, as were the chairs. We had a balcony with a view of the harbour. The spa bath was adequate... More

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
