We stayed here for one night on our way to Adelaide. The pictures and reviews had been good, but we were very disappointed. Our room (a studio) didn't look anything like the pictures. It came straight from the 1970's. Painted block walls. Dreary and drab. Brown wood everywhere. Somewhere where we didn't want to spend any time. The "bathroom" was... More

Hi RosinaK, Thank you for your review of our motel. The room you have described is one of our standard rooms & not a Studio. The photos of the rooms on our website are exactly what the rooms look like as I took the photos myself & you can see that they are painted brick. Our building is very old... More

My husband and I recently had 3 wonderful days in Robe, South Australia. Our accommodation was adequate, and the staff were fabulous. They took the time to suggest interesting walks for us and we were happy to find fresh milk in the fridge - so much better then the pretend stuff!!!! even better was the instant coffee - thank God...

I stayed at this motel on a holiday to Australia four years ago so when my itinerary took me back to the lovely little town of Robe it was the obvious place for me to stay again. Remarkably, Martin, the proprietor, remembered me (which makes me wonder what I did wrong the last time I was there!) and made me... More

Hi wakegreen, Thank you for your lovely review of our place & it was great to see you come back to us. We try very hard to welcome guests to our motel & remembering people is not easy but in many cases some people just "click". We do hope to see you again. Kindest regards Martin Stanley More

Martin and Trudy are delightful and very helpful. Accommodation was great and the laundry arrangements excellent, some of the easiest on our trip, our first visit to Australia from the UK.

The welcome we received after a long drive was uplifting. Martin happily showed us to our apartment, and showed us how everything worked. A large fresh milk was supplied, a first for us! Everything was clean and we enjoyed a great nights sleep. The walk Martin recommended was completed next morning after checkout, just wished we had stayed longer!

Hi She1971, Thank you very much for your great review of our motel. We think it's important to give fresh milk for our guests because that is what we like ourselves & for the few extra cents it costs it's better to give a 600ml container rather than a 375ml. Last year we won a Best Western Quality Award for... More

We spent 2 nights here in October last year. One of the friendliest welcomes we have ever had and that makes a big difference.
