We stayed one night in Melbourne city then headed to Port Cambel. That was long drive and because of the room in city was so tiny, we really did appreciate and enjoy our nice specious room at Portside Mortel. The lady was helpful when we asked about restaurant around there. There is some small shops and restaurants within walking distance.
