Stayed in unit 1 on 27 and 28 January 2017. The host Phil is engaging and could not be any friendlier nor accommodating. Nothing is too trivial or hard for him. He is also happy to have a chat and always remembered my (unusual) first name despite having a fully booked motel. The motel has been there a long time...

This is a lovely motel with spacious clean rooms. Staff are friendly and accommodating. It is located a short walk from shops and a short drive or 15 minute walk to the pier/beach. The pool area is quite small and unfortunately there was a loud group with squealing children who dominated the pool area with little regard for other guests....

We booked into the only hotel in town.... it was tired when we stayed here 12 years ago, and although there are new owners, it still is. They have applied cosmetic changes, unfortunately more is needed, especially when the price of a room exceeds mid range Melbourne CBD hotels. Oh and heating is an old reverse cycle air conditioner that...

Our room, 16, was quite comfortable but there was a safety issue. The step up to the bathroom was not high but did not have a yellow strip or other marking on it. There is a warning sign high up on the door, not clear enough in the dark or gloom of night. I tripped over this step several times...

We stayed here for one night on our way back to Melbourne after doing the Great Ocean drive. It was a great room with a kitchenette. Just a 5 minute walk into town or to the water. 20 minute drive to the ferry at Queenscliffe.
