Stayed last night. On arrival we were disappointed with the tired and less than welcoming room although it was pretty clean with nice linen and towels. I think it is overpriced for what we got but it is well located and has a lovely restaurant that we had dinner at. Good location to cross the road to a pub with... More

We had heard great reviews of the restaurant and we were so impressed too.The food was delicious! We were eating with friends so between us we had the duck, lamb and pork for our mains. Yum!! For dessert the rhubarb and frangipane tart was a stand out. Great service and views over the coastline topped off a memorable evening.

We arrived and unfortunately I made a mistake with my booking. The receptionist was very accomodating and was able to fix my mistake. We only stayed one night and unfortunately we didn't get to try the restaurant as it didn't appeal to us and was quite expensive for a family. The coffee pod machine in our room was great. Free...

Stayed on a business trip but felt like it was a holiday with the lovely view. Clean and comfortable room. The real highlight was in the dining at diner the. The food was delightful and service was lovely too. My main consisted of duck and dessert was a deconstructed golden gaytime. Best food I've had on the road (especially outside... More

Unfortunately we could only stay for one night, would have loved to have stayed longer. What a brilliant motel, in a great spot, so well equipped, they seem to have thought of everything and I would have no complaints at all. Well worth a second visit. Also, the restaurant was fantastic and we enjoyed a lovely meal. The staff were... More

Clean and up to date room. We stayed in 2 bed room. Comfortable beds also had a fridge. Nice bathroom. We had a nice view looking over pool and to the bay. We didn't eat there as nothing took our fancy.

Our room was room 19 and it was kind of weird when we first came in. The first thing when you open the door are 2 single beds and a desk then there is a door leading to the bathroom and another to the master bedroom which had the kitchen and living room in it. It was weird but I... More

The Whale Motor Inn was recommended to us by a friend and, for a birthday getaway for my wife, we decided to spend a long weekend there. Wow, what a pleasant surprise. This place has been kept a secret, by those who know, for too long. We were greeted on arrival and shown to our room. Again, what a surprise,... More

Our family stayed here on a trip from Sydney to Melbourne and given the great reviews we had seen were really looking forward to our stay. Sadly, we were somewhat disappointed on seeing our room. The room was clean but tired (and it even smelt tired). You can see they have tried to freshen it up, but it simply doesn't... More

We had a second storey room with great views from the balcony out across the break water, perfect spot to watch the sunset and the boats coming back and forth over the spit! The room was clean although some things are starting to get a little worn, at least the tariff hadn't increased since our last visit and that is... More
