We booked 3 rooms for a 1 night stay to bring our 91yo father to see the Great Ocean Road again. Very clean and ideally located to town centre. Ideal for our stay. Very good price from TripAdvisor obtained.

Ideally located on main road into town, opposite the beach, although no beach view. Very clean & comfortable room, warm in winter! Very helpful with where to eat etc. We only stopped over for one night while travelling the scenic Great Ocean Rd, but would go again

This place is totally beyond my expectation. The room is super clean and comfortable. I love that there is a mini pantry area there. The toilet has modern amenities and the water pressure is great (you'll be surprised why i think this is important!). The receptionist guy (who could be the owner of the motel) is nice. Inside the room,... More

We were upgraded to one of the rooms with newly renovated bathroom, which was great. Spotlessly clean bright room. Seperate kitchen area with small table was perfect for us. Heaps of storage for suitcases. Free wi-fi. Very friendly and helpful owners. Directly opposite the Visitor information Centre and walking distance to everything in the main street.

Booked our room at short notice over the phone for a one night stay. Awesome room that was clean and comfortable. Short walk to restaurants. No traffic noise only the peaceful sound of waves. We plan on staying here again.

Located in the Main Street, booked at the last moment and got the last available room. The rooms were very modern and clean. The bathroom in particular was as clean as I've ever experienced in a motel. If you had to pick a fault it is the lack of a place to place wet soap and limited hanging facilities in... More

Nice and clean, nothing extraordinary. Friendly staff on reception. No bells and whistles but it's in a great location where you can just walk out to the town main road. Restaurants and other shops are a few hundred metres walk away.

Arrived a bit early but were able to get access to our room anyway. Well located directly on the main road a few minutes walk from the beach ( on the other side of the road) . So not exactly beachfront - more like over the road from the beach front reserve. The units run perpendicular with the road so... More

Stayed here for one night last night, Saturday, for my birthday weekend. Everything was great at first - basic room but we booked at the last minute so we weren't too fazed and considered ourselves lucky to get this room. We called to say we'd be late checking in and the woman on the phone was lovely. We went out... More
