We stayed in an upstairs room with great views over the pretty harbour. Nice balcony with table and chairs. At $210 a night not cheap, however the view made up for it. All ver clean. Good location to explore this quaint town with such interesting history.

We requested an upstairs room with cooking facilities. We had a good view of the Marina. The room was very comfortable, clean and spacious. Cooking facilities were adequate. We were well located to take in the walks to points of interest and walk into town for meals and supplies. It was lovely visiting Robe in Winter as it was quiet... More

We booked online, a Deluxe room. The room we were in was not. There was no harbour view, just a view of the car park. The Bathroom containing a shower, a toilet and a hand basin....was so small I could touch both sides and both ends from the center of the room. You had to step over the toilet to... More

Great location with views across the Marina and ocean from balcony room, room was comfortable and clean. Shower was very disappointing as no water pressure and air conditioner was noisy. Overall suited our needs

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
