“excellent little motel”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Stayed here last night. We had two queen units and both were beautifully furnished with all mod cons. Both were clean, comfortable and spacious. The pretty grounds are lovingly tended by the owner's wife. Greg himself was welcoming and pleasant.

Highly recommended.

Stayed one night while driving the GOR and was pleasantly surprised. The owners were helpful and the hotel was a 5-10 min walk to the main strip of restaurants. The room itself was very large for the price (after staying in hotels in Melbourne CBD) and even included a kitchenette.

Port Campbell is a nice small town and wished I could have stayed an extra day.

we had a one night stay in this small motel type property where the owners pay great attention to detail and your comfort. the rooms are nicely furnished, very clean and obviously well maintained.It is on the edge of the small town and very close to restaurants,shops and a bay which comes right into town from the ocean. a very good,full breakfast is served in your room if you wish and at a reasonable price.very good food. would recommend this one to anyone staying in this particular town.

I just came back from Melbourne and had a 2 nights stay at BEST WESTERN Port Campbell Great Ocean Road Motor Inn. The stay was awesome and the rooms are well furnished and cozy. Its a 10mins walk to the town and the air was breezy and cooling.

Its a little cold in the weather but the overall experience of the stay is good. There's a aunty was friendly and approachable and help me out with the use the dryer.

They serve a nice continental breakfast and the portion was really big & filling and the portion is for 2 pax. Luckily, we ordered only 1 portion. Its just a 10mins drive to 12 Apostles. I'm lucky to catch sunset at Lorch Ard Gorge & Gibson Steps. Its really lovely ......

Pros:

Good accommodation in the small town of Port Campbell.
The husband/wife owners are very good (though I found the Mrs to be more helpful and patient while Mr. seemed to be distracted!) and they do their best to help you. Example -- there was confusion about the food ordered and there was an extra plate which we returned that was gladly taken back to be eaten by the owner!
Nice flowers all through the property
Fresh milk given for tea/coffee and lots of nice cottages spread over a big area
Places nearby are plentiful to visit. This is a good spot to setup as base camp while exploring surrounding places
Breakfast in your room at reasonable cost (you need to tell them previous night though)

Cons:

Not the hotel as such, but the town is too small with minimal food options
A restaurant would be a welcome addition given that there are hardly any food options in the town. It's really a great service that is being run by breakfast being provided
Some of the light fixtures were not working. We didn't bother as we're staying only 1 night, but should be taken care of given the star rating
Last but not the least, price is expensive like everything else in this town. You may fell slightly ripped off with the cost and what you get for it

Ovearll nice place to stay, but be warned that the hotels in this area are in demand and you need to book weeks in advance to ensure a spot

Room Tip: Be sure to carry food with you! Otherwise you'll have very less options and have to pay a ton

Missed feedback from he hotel when inquiring about rooms. Location is a bit outside the "centre" of town with no view. Service just average. Room OK but not quite value for money as this was sold as a SPA suite.

This was perfect. small, but perfect. Decorated in contemporary style, which is really unusual as you always get the florals. Very clean and had all the kitchenette requirements. It is only a short walk to the centre of town and beach, so really quiet. Set in beautiful neat gardens and had a little play area for kids. I agree with others, the aircons are loud. We didn't have ours on, but heard others around us! Honestly though given the wonderful decor,cleanliness and position, I highly recommend.
