We stayed in a Family Room which was a good size, facing the road. Quite noisy until later in the evening when traffic settled down. We had a good sleep. Shower was enclosed by a curtain only, so water went everywhere ALL OVER the floor - what a mess after 4 showers. They provided 2 bathmats but both ended up...

We stayed one night on our great ocean road trip between Christmas and new year. Our welcome could not have been friendlier and Jose gave us tips on places to eat and visit. The room was very comfortable and clean and had a small kitchenette with kettle and microwave. Very handy to make a cup of tea! The bathroom was...

Friendly hosts, clean spacious rooms, comfortable bed. Continental breakfast available if required, think there was a big selection of DVDs for bad weather days ( escape from Aussie TV) and unlike so many rural motels in Australia ( only in Australia & NZ ) they have 10.30 checkout and not the 10.00am eviction! Good value too

We stayed here on the last night of our Auswalk Great Ocean Walk Highlights self-guide walk – five days, four nights, three days walking (see separate review). This motel is clean and was more than adequate for our accommodation purposes at the end of our long walk. The hotel is located a very short five minute from the beach in...

Upon exiting our room we were even acknowledged by the cleaners servicing adjacent units. The motel is situated a 5 min walk from Port Campbell centre. We had room 7 during our stay which...

Stayed for one night. I was pleasantly surprised by the motel: the rooms were big, clean and comfortable. There is a fridge, microwave, water kettle, dishes, utensil and more in the room. The motel is situated just outside the noisy town centre. We had a peacefull night there!

Clean and big enough rooms. Nicest people running the place. WIFI working as well as air-con. Close to restaurants and Port Campbell beach. Nice place to stay coming from Melbourne through great ocean road. Good location to check sunset/sunrise at London Bridge.

Our family (5 adults-Mom and Dad, adults Son, Daughter and husband) stayed one night on our Great Ocean Road trip. We arrived late but were so relieved to find our motel room key and instructions waiting at the reception in an envelope with our name. This hotel was lovely!
