We stayed on 26 Oct and new owners had only been in for 3 days, so prior reviews lose some relevance. However, the new owners deserve a chance to settle in. The room was reasonable but the bathroom was minuscule, with a broken sliding door. Cleaning had not settled in - there was still toilet cleaner in the toilet. Breakfast... More

Better than average motel accomodation, providing a welcome rest on the long trip from Perth to Sydney. Kay gave us a warm reception and went out of their way to be obliging and gave us helprful advice on where best to eat lobster in Robe. The motel is centrally located in town and a block back from the beach.

Bed great,location is close to a good dining and watering hole :). Hosts Trudy & Martin are very accommodating and helpful, clearly taking pride in offering a good experience to guests. Room 16 has a spa and is spacious and fully equipped for 3 people to stay for a week or more. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

We reached this hotel on a cold wet windy day.The room we had booked (double room) was unavailable due to previous guests opting to stay on so we were "upgraded" to a large family room. This was a very large barn of a room. Whilst it was clean and well equipped it had no personality. The walls are just painted... More

Received a friendly welcome. Took us to our room, gave us milk and a map of the area, explained how to use the TV, etc. and even reminded us about the time change! The electric blanket came in handy. Nice walk into town where we had dinner at the suggested restaurant Café Belgiorno (it was delicious!) and had free wine... More

This motel is in a great location, just a block back from the main beach which is important during bad weather and high winds. An easy walk to restaurants and shops. The rooms are a little old, but are clean and have good facilities such as tea/coffee making, microwave, crockery. The hosts are extremely welcoming and helpful with sound recommendations... More

The accommodation is nothing special, basic but clean. Overpriced for a motel but we managed a comfortable night's sleep. Robe is a super destination, and a must-see if travelling between Adelaide and Melbourne. This motel is within easy walking distance of everything that Robe has to offer, a pint or two and dinner at the Caledonian Inn is a must.... More
