The Best Western is in an excellent location in Robe with the beach and town only a few minutes walk. It is a case of being able to park your car here and then do everything on foot which is nice. The units are dated, basic and small however they clean though our unit was not cleaned on the first... More

New Years is particularly a different time to visit Robe. Unfortunately the incident that you are reporting were not guests staying on site just people passing by causing a bit of trouble, which we had got up and tended to and also went and spoke to all guests in the morning .The town has a different type of tourist over...

Stayed here on our road trip to Adelaide. Very efficient and friendly service, nice spacious rooms and everything pretty much as advertised. Good position for the beaches and main shops. We enjoyed our stay very much and would recommend it to others passing this way. Robe is a quiet place (in early December at least) and a nice stopover for... More

We had been planning to revisit Robe for a longer trip for many years. When we arrived without booking and sought a twin room, the proprietor suggested a very reasonably priced two bedroom apartment, so we elected to stay three nights. The apartment was a little dated, but wonderfully comfortable, spotlessly clean, quiet and very convenient to Robe's attractions. Robe... More

Thanks for your lovely comments, and I am so pleased that the long planned trip to Robe turned out to be very pleasant. Robe has been very busy over the last couple of months, I think due to the warmer weather, it is advisable from around October through to March to perharps pre book as you really can not plan...

The location of the hotel was ok for the night we stayed there whilst travelling the GOR. Lovely village and waterside, good restaurants; hotel did a job nothing more. Room was a motel apartment large enough but again did what it said on the advertising; reception fine although we had to park in the correct numbered space no where else.

All our rooms have allocated parking numbers this is to save confusion for guests as we only hava the correct number of parks per room. Tis is also to avoid people that are not staying at the motel or people with 2 cars not taking up more spaces, so other miss out. More

Very basic but clean accommodation - the walls were painted brickwork and the floors tiled. Minimalist with little furniture in bedrooms other than wardobes. There was A/C and a T/V in the main living room but none in the bedrooms (we had a 2 bedded unit). If you use the crockery you must wash and dry this yourself otherwise a... More

Stayed here on third night of our Great Ocean Road trip. Room was basic, but clean; comfortable bed and all the facilities worked. Toilet/shower area very small and the sliding door arrangement left a lot to be desired.

A very nice standard, no frills motel. The rooms were not modern but very clean. We had a 2 bedroom room which was lovely and spacious. Good location for walking into the main restaurant/pub area of Robe.

The location is probably the most common comment in regards to our motel, we are in a perfect spot close to restaurants and shops in Robe, the 2 bedroom apartments do offer plenty of room to make the stay more comfortable. Thanks for your comments More

Motel room(not the apartment) was very small. Bathroom had inadequate space around shower,vanity (no 240vac) and toilet area. TV shelf protrudes into room causing head bumping. Sliding door bedroom to bathroom not convenient. Very poor value for rates charged. Indicated to the friendly young managers that the motel block would be better off being demolished and more modern units built.... More

We were greeted with genuine warmth and lots of helpful advice about where to eat, as we had arrived at dinner time. We were delighted to find we had been upgraded to an apartment. We could happily have stayed a week, but unfortunately we only had one night here. The location is perfect. Our apartment was well appointed and it... More
