“Excellent Motel”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Friendly reception
Clean rooms
Convenient location
Only issue was the lack of a bath door. The shower curtain failed to prevent the entire toilet floor from being wet after a bath.
However, was very satisfied overall with the stay here. Excellent

This motel is ideally situated for a stay after a day viewing the Great Ocean Road coastline. The reception service was very good with help being given for sightseeing and local restaurants. The room was much larger than expected with a little kitchen area and also a private patio which was a pleasant extra. It was only a short walk into the town for a meal in the evening. We would really enjoy staying here again if in the area.

The room is cleanliness, and it is nearby The Twelve Apostles.So, it's very convinence to go to "The Arch" or "The Twelve Apostles" to see sunrise. The reception staff is very nice and she's a good talker! We suggest that it's a good place to stay 2 nights at least, so that you can see the beatiful sunrise and sunset in "The Arch" or "The Twelve Apostles" .Also, it's nearby Gibson Steps, it's very romantic to sit down and breath sea wind, just be relax!

Nicely furnished and organised cosy room with all necessary amenities. Good location, quiet although close to downtown Port Campbell. John is a very friendly owner who provided us very helpful information about restaurants and places to visit in the area. We definitely recommend Portside Motel.

By this stay in Portside,I must say good sincerely.Before several days we would set out,Joise had sent e-mail to ask us if we need help.They offered us correct information.The motel is queit and comfortable .It takes 5 minutes by walking from the motel to shops and resturants.I won't be hesitate to recommend them to my freinds if they have a program to drive to Great Ocean Road.

Room Tip: The motel is quiet and convenient.

Big & clean room, our 7-years old daughter loves the room. Good location, near the Port Campbell national park where we went to three times in two days. Very nice staff, we really enjoy to stay there.

We had a very enjoyable stay! The rooms were comfortable and very clean, and the hotel is a very close walk to the beach and the shops, but still quiet enough to be able to get a full nights sleep. Josie in particular was great, and remembered our names and what we'd been up to. Will definitely go back!
