I was greet very friendly by the couple who were managing the hotel. The room is very nice n suitable for two. Also it's very close to the scenic sites of twelve apostle. The only thing to improve is the heater not warm enough.

We visited the great ocean road for an overnight stay at the 2 bedroom family apartment. Greeted by very friendly staff, it was excellent to see that the apartment was spotless and very homely. With good kitchen provisions and small things such as books to make the apartment more warming, the reverse cycle AC which kept us all warm was the topping on the cake.
Private parking means you can be sure that your car is secure.

The only slight let down was the quality of the beds, which were squeaky and a little on the lacking support side, but still adequate for a good nights sleep.

We stayed one night and I think the bed was the most comfortable we had for the whole trip. Nice set up in the room with a couch, fridge, microwave etc. Owner was really friendly and helpful. It was a short walk to everything. We really enjoyed our stay. Only thing I could criticise is when you have a shower nearly the whole bathroom floor got wet.

The price for the stay was reasonable for a room for 3 people. We were greeted by their friendly owner, and checked in with much ease. As it was only a 1 night stay, we could not enjoy the area much. The motel was located in a short distance from the eating places. The town is relatively quiet at night, and it was a nice experience. We would love to come back again and hopefully stay for a longer stretch to fully enjoy the place.

It was a wonderful short stay in Portside. We were exploring where to take a stop during our Great Ocean Road Drive and finally decided to stop at Port Campbell.

The service was great and the room was nice. As it was a small town, location was not a big factor. What we enjoy alot is the warm welcome during check in and a very clean room.

Nice accommodation some kilometres further the Twelve Apostles.
The welcome at the reception was lovely and warm, and the room was perfect: clean, in superb conditions, and the heater was even on before our arrival as it was a cold day. It couldn't be better!
