A very basic cold room. Fridge not working propery, freezer not even frosted. I was hoping to cook a piece of toast , but to my horror no toaster. I was given a small jug of milk, enough for 2 cups of tea, I have never been to a motel without a toaster, was informed its because of health regulations... More

Prior to booking, I phoned the manager and mentioned previous negative TA reviews. I told him that we didn't mind older properties, but would not tolerate lack of cleanliness. He assured me that they had recently taken over the property and that it was now kept very clean. We were therefore disappointed to find hair and dust behind the TV... More

Though basic, it was comfortable and surprisingly quiet although it was located on the Great Ocean Road. The hotel was conveniently located with 2 eateries nearby, one, a tavern across the road and the other, a Greek restaurant right next door. The manager was extremely helpful and made dinner recommendation and reservations and provided suggestions and directions with great warmth... More

The central location of this property was ideal for someone without own transport. Welcoming and helpful manager. Clean, comfortable, affordable and will be even better when updated! A good place for a day or two listening to the ocean.

Sadly two hours before my arrival, I received a phone from a staff member of the The light keeper inn, letting me know that they couldn't honour my room booking, which was already payed. The staff was not friendly nor willing to offer any help or alternative solution.

After booking this accommodation as one of the few last minute opportunities on 8 March 2014 we were disappointed by some comments on Tripadvisor. However our two rooms were clean, functional and up to scratch. Yes it's not the most modern, but its quiet, its opposite the pub (bonus) even the pool looked spotless - a lot better than many...

I won't bother to write much in this review, because you must look at the photos and judge for yourself. The camera does not lie. Dead flies on the windowsills. A filty microwave with old food remains on the inside. Cobwebs everwhere. Dead spiders hanging from the ceiling. It's your choice whether you stay there! My advice would be to... More

We felt right at home straight away! The new owners are so friendly and welcoming and knowledgeable about the local area. They recommended many great attractions. The room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Cherie the Dalmatian brings a touch of magic too!

We arrived with a group that had been coming here for the past 3 years. They vowed to find somewhere else for next year. The hotel is way over priced even with the discount we got due to the mix up because of the previous owners not writing down the price we were originally quoted. That said the owner was... More
