“.......this is a 'must' stop on your Great Ocean Road trip.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Her and me got a great welcome from Peter the owner. He had just painted our room the day before our arrival and was concerned that there might still be a paint smell and so he thought it best to upgrade us to a 2 bedroom with a jacuzzi bath and at no additional cost.

Peter has spent his first year, since taking the place over, by refurbishing every room and his efforts can be seen throughout the property. Each room has comfortable beds, all new bedding, a smart new tv and aircon and all the kitchen utensils in our room were brand new. Swimming pool and BBQ area are available to all guests.

Coffee, tea and some cookies greet you and unusually in this area, a complimentary continental breakfast is offered each morning.

This Motor Inn is like a little oasis on the Great Ocean Road and is well worth a stop on your trip.

We came all the way from Scotland to enjoy Peter's hospitality.

Host Peter was very welcoming to our painting group when we stayed at his hotel in mid September 2012. My room was very clean, updated to a good standard and there was a great can do attitude if there was anything that needed attention (not that I had any issues). Peters plan for a chef in the near future will add to this great accommodation spot. We will definitely be back. Thanks again Peter - keep up the good work.

We stayed here for one night after having a view at the apostels which are about 15min drive away from Port Campbell. The Motelroom was okay, the owner very nice. We had trouble with our laundry and asked for some help and the help was there immediately. Thanks a lot! The room was big and clean, but it was not the newest one. But the price was very fair. So we can recommend it to have a night here while being on the great ocean road.

Stayed here for three nights with a group of artists painting the amazing scenery of the Great Ocean Road. The owner lives on site and has a clear commitment to continue with the many improvements he has already put in place. He takes great pride in his establishment and has a distinctly friendly and hands on approach to management. It there is a problem he is close by and sees it it fixed promptly. Not that you are likely to have any problems - my room was spacious, clean and simply decorated, with a flat screen TV attached to the wall, microwave, reverse cycle air conditioner, very comfortable bed and a couple of comfortable armchairs. Outside the romm were two wooden chairs and a small table so you take take in some morning or evening sun with a cup of tea or a glass of wine. The breakfast room is cosy with white cloth table cloths and breakfast choices of various toasts and cereal with juice, tea and coffee.
The motel is located close to town and Peter has a good knowledge of eating places and tourist spots. I suspect that anyone who stayed here before Peter took over wouldn't recognize the place. He has put in a great deal of hard work pulling it up to a new level of comfort with little touches of luxuries like chocolates to welcome you.
Overall an excellent choice for a mid range motel.

Comfortable accommodation and convenient place on Great Ocean Road. Bonus to have brekky in cozy dining room included in price of room. Proprietor very friendly and helpful with good advice on local restaurants for evening meal. He said he is in process of updating all the rooms; our room hadn't been updated yet, but we found it to be nice, neat, and clean.

Room Tip: All rooms are behind office and main road, with nature reserve adjoining property.

Stayed here for one night with a group of friends. Absolutely outstanding service, Peter the new owner was extremely friendly, helpful and made our trip even more enjoyable. The room was fantastic - very spacious, beds very comfortable, nice bathroom and tea/coffee/biscuits available. Breakfast was just right for what we wanted and there are plans to offer cooked meals in the future. It was absolutely ideal for a stop off on the great ocean road and very good value for money. The motel is within walking distance of the town and had a few choices of places to eat. Would highly recommend staying here, delighted we booked it!

We were located in front rooms overlooking a peaceful beach front.But did have roads in front.
Good value for money.
Well kept buildings & rooms.
Very quiet time of year.
We could sit on verandah & enjoy afternoon sun & drinks,without too many passers by.

Room Tip: Front Motel type rooms or apartments behind gave best views of water.
