We made it to Robe without a booking & found most accommodation in Robe this weekend with "No Vacancy" signs. A quick search on Tripadvisor found this place, with good reviews from fellow travellers with - only 2 rooms remaining. Without haste, we booked immediately. From the moment we entered the reception, we were made to feel warm & welcomed.... More

Lovely friendly owners but room VERY basic, bathroom had sliding door which was difficult to open and close quietly, toilet seat cheap and nasty, basic shower curtain. Fixtures look homemade, our room was advertised at having kitchenware but although we had a kettle toaster and microwave there was only a cup and teaspoon each. When we asked for a couple... More

We stayed for one night on our great ocean road trip. The welcome was so friendly and the location great. The motel room was the usual layout and spotless. We borrowed dvd's from reception to watch in the evening. We had a lovely walk along the harbour and over the boardwalk on the headland as recommended by the hotel.

Nice clean motel close to waterfront and most attractions, restaurants and hotel. Was a handy 1 minute walk to the Robe Hotel for tea where we had a very nice meal with a great view. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend to friends visiting one of our coastal icons. Drapes don't keep the light out too well so a sleep in was... More

We really liked this property very clean and well appointed. The couple covering for the owners were lovely and so helpful with local information and places to eat. Quiet location walkable to shops etc. no bad things to say.

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.
