The hotel is near the harbour, but that is not really an advantage. It is pretty old, but the rooms are comfortable enough. Staff is very friendly. We tried to use Netflix and that needed an adpation from their usual internet facilities. That was speedily arranged!

A very comfortable budget priced motel overlooking the harbour, although our room was in the courtyard. Well fitted out, freshly styled decor and clean facilities. Lots of local info provided. Laundry facilities available.

Having great hopes for this stay - chosen against others considered - it was a little disappointing to find we were given a room tingled behind the small laundry. In addition the wifi was very weak and restricted. The facilities were clean & warm (required in July) but they were very dated and in need of refurbishment. Overall we didn't... More

Great location, little old and needs some upgrading. Had an electric blanket which was lovely. We were upgraded not to a Harbour View but a larger room. Receptionist very welcoming and helpful with places to eat etc. I guess value for money.

Nice motel with plenty of room and views on the top floor. The bed was comfortable but could have been a little bit softer, but that is being picky as it was softer than the typical harder beds you get elsewhere. The kitchenette was handy but didn't have an oven, but that was OK. Quiet at night once the spa... More

It was our first time to pre-book through an Information Centre (Victor Harbour). Being Mothers Day weekend we thought Robe could be heavily booked so booked three days ahead. We probably would not pre-book in this way again. We were two couples, so we're given what was available, one delux unit and one standard. The lady at reception was very... More

We recently stayed 2 nights at the Harbour View Motel in Robe, SA. It is situated just across from the marina and just a short walk to the shops. They had a wide range of rooms but we chose a standard room and found it to be clean, very comfortable and affordable. With rooms stocked with kettle, toaster, crockery, cutlery... More

We arrived late in the day so our room allocation was the only unit remaining, close to the main driveway. The room was clean and well appointed. The bathroom was tiny but the shower was hot and water pressure perfect. The restaurant and walking tips that we were provided were excellent.

Very expensive for a single room $185!Screeching mistral fan in bathroom. Four Foxtel channels only. Noisy!! Not good value! Such a good position in Robe facing Harbour that needs a modern motel. Owners very big on saving water so don't expect a decent shower with shower rose in Room 3.

Hi Grant, Thank you for leaving your review although we are sorry to hear you did not enjoy your stay with us. We have not had any previous guests complain about the bathroom fan or the water saving shower head so we are surprised you did not find them satisfactory. The shower head was installed by the government to reduce... More
