We arrived late and the desk person was very helpful in directing us to a nice grocery store in the area. She was very knowledgeable of the area and willing to share. In the field across from the motel were tons of cockatoos. Just an added bonus. Clean and comfortable for the night.

Stayed here for one night after returning to Great Ocean Road, to finish off what we hadn't completed last time we were there. Great spot, clean fresh rooms, nice comfy bed. Pool looked very nice but due to the weather we never tried it out. Very nice gardens, great place to stop if staying I. Torquay

We stayed here for two nights and the room is clean, well appointed and quite close to the centre of town. Everything worked well and the room is quite spacious and comfortable. They have a pool and spa on site. The first day the spa was hot but was cold on the second day. I guess I could have asked...

We had a one night stop over while driving down the Great Ocean Road. First, I highly recommend stopping in Torquay. Great little town with amazing beach area. The motel I would also recommend.

An older styled motel but very quiet and comfortable. We appreciated the tea, coffee and toaster for the morning. It is a very short drive into town where there are many places to eat. We enjoyed the free DVD hire in our room.

As someone who travels to earn a living, my accommodation requirements are simple. All I need is somewhere clean, quiet and modestly priced. The Torquay Tropicana met my requirements and I was very satisfied with the room. The bed was comfortable, showers and floor clean even though the rooms are dated (but the price reflects this so no complaints) The...
