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

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.

Room was very clean and very well equipped with ameties such as microwave, cutleries etc. Mon the receptionist was very friendly and informative. We had such a pleasant stay and would highly recommend anyone who intends to stay at Port Campbell. The motel is also located near the famous attractions such as the twelve apostles, loch ard gorge etc.

We made the right decision to stay here - place was really, really clean. One downside (minor and manageable) would be the bathroom - shower area is not properly segregated, if not careful the whole bathroom could get wet which is not a good thing in winter.
