We stayed at the Downtown Motel which was in walking distance of the festival, we left our car at the Motel, we didn't have to worry or pay for parking which was hard to get as it was so busy. The kids also enjoyed the games room at the motel after dinner. All round Motel, festival really good weather not so good but kids still got in the heated swimming pool and want to come back next year. Therese, Adam and Family

Room Tip: Central position walking distance to shops

On arrival at the Downtown Motel Warrnambool after ringing to say we will be late key organized for us, we were pleasantly surprized to find heater on and cot set up for bubs.
Nothing was to much trouble for management and staff making our 4 day stay very enjoyable
we will be telling our friends to stay at this motel when going to Warrnambool

We brought this accommodation on Travel Auctions. I Checked it out on the Internet, seemed fine. Arrival was something different. Anthony, the manager, was obviously in a bad mood, he informed us, that as we were staying, 3 nights and had not booked earlier, we'd have to have a double bed instead ofa single....We ttraveled with our 16 y/ o nice and our 8 y/o son. The place was nowhere near booked out, empty car parks all around. We were cramped in a tiny bed room. There was not even a glass! Not looking forward to three days like this. Looking for other options right now.

Room Tip: Don't expect to have a holiday here. Okay for 1 night while passing through.

Timing is everything. We discovered too late that the March 8 - 11 weekend was labour day for Australia and that the Port Fairy Folk fest took place at the same time. It was nearly impossible to find a hotel and they had all jacked their rates up obscenely. The people at the "i" in Torquay were extremely helpful, (Thanks Ann) and found the above motel for us after an hour of searching. We grabbed it. When we arrived after a few days on the "Great Ocean Road" which was beautiful and not as difficult a drive as described, we arrived in Warnambool, Anthony tried to put us in an overflow room off the storage area with a tiny window onto a busy street. Not my favourite host on this trip. I was prepared to go to the "i" in town, demand that they return my money, I was so despondent, but managed to convince him that we were paying double his usual rate
( $165) and were not prepared to stay. He then found us a better room , good enough but it didn't feel exactly clean. This was our worst hotel of 22 while traveling for 45 days. hotel

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel.

What a dump. Very, very basic and they charged 4 star prices!! Happy to say room, although very small, was very clean. One glass only, no biscuits, poor towels, no shampoo, etc. Staff very courteous and helpful. Bed comfortable.

Room Tip: Request downstairs room
