Make sure if you stay at this hotel, make sure you ask for a harbour view room as they are nice. We got a room described as a deluxe suite that overlooked the car park. It wasn't that great. Also the hotel should work on its in room notices as they're unfriendly, eg stating you have to pay $15 if... More

Good choice if you're travelling through Robe. On the outskirts of the centre, about 10-15 mins walk from most shops and restaurants. Rooms are clean and modern. 1st floor rooms with harbour view are the best.

We really enjoyed our stopover in Robe after a two week camping trip to Kangaroo Island. We were made to feel really welcome by the hosts who went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed.

Had a great time in Robe - you really need an upstairs balcony room to enjoy the view (rooms are also larger with better finish so well worth the few dollars more). Staff could not do enough to help. Hotels and shops are great - Lobsters well priced ($70 kg) from wholesaler (half what you would pay in town).
