Had a brief nite here with my wife and our 9yo & 3yo. Family room is generously equipped with a double bed and two single beds. A very decently sized balcony, pretty room even for a family of four. The room and surrounding facilities are very clean and tidy. Located at port Campbell, and there's a convenience store right across... More

I was quite impressed with our room. We were in a king suite. It had a great patio. The room was clean and quite modern inside! Very close to restaurants and cafes as well as the beach. Nice place to stay.

This was your typical motel - nice and close to the beach and the eateries. The lady - Margaret was lovely, I had dirtied my only pair of long trousers and she washed and dried them for me 👌. I appreciated that very much - it's been a very long time since anyone did my washing for me.

From the moment we arrived to departure, was a pleasant stay. Very clean and room king studio apartment, great kitchen facilities, modern bathroom and very comfortable bed. Was lovely to sit out on the deck with a drink and see the ocean and activities going by. Would highly recommend staying here for one night or longer.

We stayed at Port Campbell on our derive through the Great Ocean Road. It is well located in the center of town. You can walk to the beach. Actually, just enjoy the beach view from your room. The place is very clean and fresh.

This is a well positioned hotel with some beach front rooms allowing you to sit on the veranda and what the beach. Pub is just across the road and a little grocery store a few doors up. Rooms are fine and offer all the basics. I recommend this based on its location.

We stayed here so we could get an early start on the Great Ocean Road, and for that it was a great location (as would any hotel in Port Campbell). The location of the Loch Ard Motor Inn was also good because it's on the 200 yard "main strip" of the town and very close to the town beach. FYI... More

Stayed for 1 night and that's just right for the this basic room. Everything is just okay, nothing to really excite or delight other than the view of the bay. Bed is a bit hard and sheets on the thin side. (There's a blanket and extra pillows). Fridge and microwave in working order. The seats with the small table are... More
