“Clean, friendly staff & a good price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2011

3 of us stayed for 4 nights in 2 rooms, I have to say that the bed in our room was very comfortable, which is a big change from the usual in motels in this price range. 5 stars for the bed alone. The managers were very friendly and helpful, rooms clean and had everything we needed. Only gripe is the car park but I am not sure there is much that can be done to help, the parking spaces are very tight. I would be happy to stay here again any time.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2011

Was recommended to me at the local information bureau. Good value for money ($82 for the night). A good sized room which was clean and the bed was comfortable. Walking distance from the centre of town (except the weather meant needed to drive). Heating worked well so nice and warm on a very cold night. Would recommend to others.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2010

Fairly standard motor inn. The included breakfast consisted of four pieces of bread and two small bottle of juice left in the fridge. The carpark is quite tight. The shower wasn't particularly clean. Our main grumble was that our unit (number 7) seemed exceptionally noisy - you can hear the phone ringing in reception all hours of the day, and the resident children shouting and playing. It's OK value for the price, but better for an overnight stop than an extended stay.

Just a standard motel near the town centre close to amenities like shops, cafe, bars & restaurants. The rooms are clean and functional with tea/coffee facility and also a microwave oven. Free car parking is available off street within the motel's courtyard.

Portland is a logical midway stop for a road trip from Melbourne to Adelaide via the Great Ocean Road. This motel is a reasonable choice for an overnight stay.
