“Pretty good”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

Stayed here for business for one night. Good old fashioned room & was very comfortable. Just out of the heart of Torquay but perfect for me. I probably wouldn't stay again as I feel for the money I spent for one night I could of probably got a deal at a 4 - 5 star resort and I got a pretty good deal... 7/10

Room Tip: Good if you want something just out of Torquay main street and if you aren't looking to stay at...

Very basic motel however they do have everything you need, friendly welcome, information provided and maps. Didn't use pool as we spent the 2 days travelling along great ocean road and swimming at the beach. Booked standard room which had queen bed and single bed plenty of room for the 2 of us. The only drawback was if you want to sit outside your motel room there was only 1 chair, they could improve it with a small table and chairs with umbrella and didn't use bbq area to cook as it was dirty and I did see someone cleaning the pool and thought they would clean up area too.

Room Tip: Rooms 1 - 5 nearer to pool and rec room and further away from busy roads.

Close to Surf shop outlets. Bit of a long walk to the beaches but easily reachable by car. Very clean and tidy rooms at modest prices even for a long weekend. The spa in the room is a nice touch. Didn't try the pool as the kids were much more interested in the beach but it looks clean and relaxing.

Clean and quiet rooms with all the standard amenities. A long walk from the beach but very close and easy to reach by car. The pool and spa were much appreciated after a day on the road. I'll be back again later in the year.

Room offered the minimum required accomodation in this price range. Facilities were basic and the proximity of a main road intersection was unfortunate.

The facilities were excellent and the staff were friendly and helpful. The Tropicana Motel was very clean off the beach but close to shopping.

Comfortable beds with blackout curtains, wifi very fast (extra charge), lovely sized room, heating/air con available and working. Good night's sleep, but location on main road isn't glamorous! No issue with traffic noise at all. Great value!
