“Great motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Great motel! We only stayed one night as we were passing through on our way towards Melbourne. The staff were so helpful and friendly. We had a room at the back and it was nice. I would definitely stay again.

Stayed December 2014, traveled with friends

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2014

This was a great find. We stayed here as an overnight on our way across Australia and it was a wonderful stop. The owners were very friendly and extremely helpful. We had a couple of small issues which were quickly and satisfactorily. The room was very large, clean with a comfortable bed and good hot shower. Free breakfast which was very satisfying. Very close to facilities including a local hotel where we ate dinner. Would recommend this motel and would definitely stay here again.

An overnight stay in Portland turned into an experience well worth having. We came down to visit old friends who recommended this motel. Cathie and her husband were very welcoming and friendly. Large room, clean and comfortable with excellent heating (it was freezing outside), the beds were clean and very comfy - we had a good night's sleep after a hard day travelling. The hot breakfast was fantastic - well cooked and served hot with plenty on the plates. Cannot praise this place enough - we will be back!

Room Tip: We had a room near the street and were not bothered at all.

Stayed for 1 night travelling between Apollo Bay and Halls Gap. Booked into a room with queen and single bed for child. Very spacious and clean. Was impressed with the extras the room contained such as microwave and crockery...as well as the usual tea,coffee etc. Bed very comfy. Free Wi Fi. Can walk to town for restaurants and shops..only takes a few minutes. We ate at the pub on the corner and had a delicious meal. Owners very helpful. Would definitely recommend this motel to others for its cleanliness, large rooms and proximity to town.

Stayed here with my partner. Rooms are huge compared to most city hotels. We stayed in room 9 I think. An older style but spotlessly clean. Good shower/bathroom. Good lighting in room. Excellent blockout for sleeping in. Continental breakfast supplied in basket which was a nice idea, so prepared it when needed. Micro, kettle, toaster, etc. would recommend to others. Plenty of parking.
