Mid winter price of $98 for a couple was money well spent. Clean and comfortable. Bed super comfy. Nice hot shower. Good quality linen. Service not to be faulted. Very quiet. Across the road from pub offering casual dining. Free wifi. Stayed two nights and would stay again.

We only booked in for one night as the motel suits that fine. The room was clean with fresh white linen that was clearly a new addition. The rooms are 60's and other than the new carpet everything else is old. The bathroom needs an overhaul desperately to fix the missing tile pieces in the shower and update. No toaster... More

Overall the accommodation was ok. It's in a close proximity to the "around the twist lighthouse" only 15 mins walk. Open was a bar across the road, works well if you don't have anything to do otherwise the "DOOF DOOF" music late at night may keep you up. The motel staff were amazingly friendly, top marks for that.

This place is like an old motel in the 50's in the US - now that's not a bad thing. The room was very adequate and Rod was very friendly and helpful in checking us in. We wanted to do the cliff side walk and he helped us with directions and suggestions.

The lightkeepers Inn has a great position opposite the Pub the building from the outset looks charming but the rooms are really outdated car parking is not suitable for large Suv vehicles or large cars the turning circle to get in and out is a little difficult. The room had cobwebs in it the toilet cistern was very noisy furniture... More

Situated along the Great Coast Road is this motel. Easy to find and with pleasant owners on site. Close to the shops by car with a very popular pub across the road. The room that I'm sitting in as I write this could only be described as dated, almost retro. Very very little has been done to make the room... More

We had a very comfortable stay here, location is spot on! Hairdryer in room didn't work, however a replacement was received instantly! Pool wasn't open, may have been for cleaning. Brewery across the road is very handy. Price was on point for three of us for one night (considering its on great ocean road and local to other lovely towns.... More

Good motel in great location on the earlier part of the Great Ocean Road. Nice greeting by staff, impressed they had read our notes and prepared the travel cot for our daughter. Opposite a brewery and pub, next door to a restaurant. Make sure you go and see the Lighthouse too! A little steep in price for a motel -... More

We had a booking, not prepaid but secured by credit card, for a night 25-26 December. We arrived according to schedule and found a reception lady closing the hotel due to the bushfire in Wye River area some 30-40 km away. We were turned back and had no other option but to return back to Melbourne and find another place... More
