Average motel in good location. It served a purpose for a one night stay and was better priced than many other properties in the area. If you go in the off-season it can be a bit chilly as no carpet in main area.

This is a very nice motel, with everything you would expect to find in a good motel. The room is very large, and there is a lounge, table and two chairs which are always welcome. I would be very happy to stay here again.

Great quite location 1 street back from foreshore. Very clean, but decor a bit dated. comfortable and off street parking. welcoming staff with good information and a very friendly nature. Overall basic but good value for money. Will come back.

A great location close to the beach and lovely walks. The room was clean and spacious. A basic motel room nothing fancy. Sleeping in the same room as a refrigerator is weird though - we had a room with a kitchenette

Pleased that the room was comfortable enough, your room was a studio room which is open plan. We also have apartments that separate bedrooms for kitchen, that option may be good if you visit in the future. We do have a ideal location situated close to beaches and some gorgeous walking tracks. Thanks for you review. More

The room was fine, although the bathroom was a bit small. Staff friendly and helpful. Offered a map at check in, with some ideas for places to eat. Breakfast was delivered to the room promptly at the requested time, consisting of cereal with fresh milk, bread to make toast (there's a toaster in the rooms) with butter and jam, and... More

As a stopping point along our drive from Adelaide to Melbourne, this motel was ideal. Set just back from the main through road it was quiet, with a well appointed motel style room. Bed was big and comfy, with a second single bed adjacent. Setter, small table and chairs and a two seater set outside where we sat for breakfast... More

We' d stayed here before in a perfectly Ok regular room, so it was a great disappointment to find that our two room apartment was such a step down. Crowded, gloomy, in need of a major uplift, with crumby uncomfortable couches and unforgiving chilly tiled floors. Throw in skimpy thin towels and the experience just faded into mediocrity.How sad....just not... More

Disappointing that you were not happy with the accommodation. The business has had a change of ownership in the last 9 months and they are looking to update the rooms in time. I will pass on the dissatisfaction on the towels to the laundry supplier. We are limited to laundry suppliers being in a small town but I will pass... More

For a motel we were pleasantly surprised. The staff were friendly and the room very big and clean. They need to get rid of the breezeblock walls that are painted; if they do the room would have been excellent.

Your average motel with rooms that could do with a total renovation. They use a "water efficient" shower rose which I had to remove to have a decent shower. This motel is within walking distance of cafes, restaurants and the beach/sea. Robe is a lovely little hamlet if you enjoy nature and a peaceful environment at the sea.

My wife and I decided to stay in Robe as it seemed such a lovely place to break our journey from Adelaide to Melbourne. Perfect. The welcome at the hotel was just great and the room with spa lovely, they even recommend an excellent restaurant for us. Just superb.
