The manager, David, and his wife Ant were really welcoming. The room was extremely spacious and well kept in a quiet area close to the main part of the town. The restaurant was closed at the time but they gave us a great recommendation and we had a lovely evening. Ant even gave us a needle and thread so that... More

We stayed here on our way to Adelaide after driving the Great Ocean Road and, arriving late after a long drive, found the lady on the reception (Ant) to be very friendly & helpful. We were travelling with an infant and she gave us a room apart from other guests so no stress about waking anyone else up at night!... More

Clean, comfortable accommodation hosted by a most helpful host in central Robe. Although the accommodation lacked a lot of the standard items found in most 4 star accommodation, we weren’t paying local 4 star prices, so in essence we were satisfied with the room. The beds were clean and comfortable, the bathroom had obviously been renovated and was sparklingly clean.... More

How to beat the heat! First, go to Robe, which is always a bit cooler than the city. Next, stay at the Guichen Bay Motel. Our room was spacious and comfortable, with a table, chairs and a two seater settee, and a very efficient (and quiet) air conditioner. There is a lovely swimming pool, perfect for a dip at the...
