We stayed just one night on our trip along the Great Ocean Rd and I can highly recommend Portside for convenience, comfort and hospitality. The reception staff (presumably the owners) treat guests as old friends.

Portside Motel is well situated within an easy walk of the few restaurants in Port Campbell. The hostess was most friendly and welcoming, giving useful information about the area. The local map handed out on arrival gave us some ideas for extra sightseeing that we might otherwise have missed. The rooms are spacious and clean - the bare block walls... More

great location while traveling the Great Ocean Road. Clean & Comfortable rooms, parking was good. Close to restaurants and stores. Agree with the other shower comments wish it was contained but for one night it was no problem.

Perfect motel in a small village. Very friendly and helpful people. We (3 adults) got an upgrade to the 4 persons apartment because all the rooms were booked. After buying some groceries at the general store in town, we cooked ourselves a perfect dinner and spend an evening at home in the very large apartment, Wonderful!

We stayed for a night and found it very comfortable. The rooms are big and clean and the beds are comfortable. Parking is fine as well. All eating options are close by and walkable. The only area of improvement was the shower area, which was not separated from the rest of the bathroom leading to water on the floor throughout... More

We had a great stay at Portside. We were greeted with a big smile & happy welcome. Rooms are big & clean, quite modern. The location is only a short walk from the main shops & beach which also makes it a quiet yet convient location. The TV can be a bit tricky to turn on but ask at the... More

Our room was very spacious with all the facilities you need for an overnight stay. It was cold and rainy and the room was warm and cosy. It was a quite well appointed room though not trendy and very quiet in spite of being on the main highway. It is about a block's walk (easy) to the main shops and... More

We spent one night in winter and appreciated the warm welcome and larger than average room. Just a short walk to all of Port Campbell's dining choices. We could not increade the volume on the television and the motel staff member sorted this out very quickly.
