“Well equipped”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2014 via mobile

We arrived late after spending time visiting the Great Ocean Road sights, receptionist was very friendly. The room was quite large and fully equipped. Very clean.
Close to the shopping centre an easy walk to purchase dinner.
Would re visit.

We arrived late on a Thursday afternoon and were given a family room for the two of us which was fine as it has given me a great idea for my daughter and her family! Loads of space and the second bedroom is upstairs on the mezzanine which is over the kitchen ... Great really - there is room upstairs for three children and the queen size bed downstairs if very comfortable. The kitchen is exceptionally well equipped and room for five at the dining table. Highly recommended.

Standard 2 to 3 star motel accommodation with a comfortable bed at 5 star pricing. It was a busy weekend and accommodation was in short supply nevertheless the cost of 240 dollars was excessive. There was no internet and our room was off the office without sound proofing and looked straight out on the main room . There was also a mild ant problem.

We were unaware that this was a long weekend in Victoria when we originally planned to visit the Great Ocean Rd, and naively thought we could just find accommodation when we wanted to stop! Once we worked it out, we had trouble finding a vacancy and grabbed this place without expecting anything much. What a pleasant surprise we had when we checked in! Spotlessly clean, well run and obviously cared for, the bed was comfortable, pillows good and kitchenette had everything we needed including pepper and salt. We found it to be good value and the location is superb, a stroll to everything but not close enough to be noisy.

We booked this last minute over the school holidays in January, so as you can imagine finding something for a large family at such short notice was difficult. We saw this place advertised and had to snap up the chance. The motel was really nice don't get me wrong, but for $360 per night for a family room for a 3.5 star motel is grossely overpriced. I can appreciate a mark-up on price of some sort, but this was just completly over the top. I think motels know they can charge whetever they like that time of year as people will just pay whatever motel want to charge (or get away with charging). Tip : Book ahead!!

Had 2 rooms for 2 nights in January 2014 and were more than pleased with what had been a last-minute booking. It's in a splendid location and had everything needed for a really comfortable stay. The kitchenette area and associated items were spotless, as was the bathroom and the main area. The beds were fine and it was lovely to have fresh milk provided to accompany the tea and coffee in the room. Housekeeping was done efficiently and quietly ready for the second night's stay. Parking was easy, immediately opposite the door in a correspondingly numbered slot. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. Would certainly stay there again if ever back in that part of the world.

Stayed here for one night whilst on a road trip down the Ocean Road. The rooms are well appointed and most importantly kept clean. You are also provided with a small bottle of fresh milk when checking in for your tea & coffee which is a nice touch, as I hate UHT portions. Would definitely recommend.
