“A clean, comfortable and well priced motel.”

The rooms are spacious and quiet providing us with a good nights rest after a day driving up the Great Ocean Road in some rather foul weather. The reception desk service was prompt and friendly and I would happily return if passing through Torquay again.

A clean, well run motel, which offered me the security and convenience that I needed as a lone female traveller. I received a great Aussie welcome and was well looked after. The motel is just on the edge of town so you do need to look out for it if travelling from Geelong, but is remarkably quiet. It is ideal for a 10 minute walk to the sea and I had a very comfortable overnight stay.

Clean, friendly and well priced. When you are on the road and need a bed, this place is a little gem. Positioned just out of town so you may need your vehicle if you plan to do some sightseeing unless you don't mind a bit of a walk. I would stay here again.

Stayed for one night on the long weekend, inexpensive accommodation in a good location. Rooms are a good size, bedding was clean and comfortable. Staff we're very friendly, we were running late and we're very appreciative of a courtesy call from the motel to check we were still coming as they were booked out. Only a short walk down to The Esplanade or to the surf shops and McDonalds.

Room Tip: Far enough off the main road so we didn't have any notice from vehicles.

The reception people were lovely, we really got along well with them, they were approachable and helpful when we needed and our allowed us total privacy. We got a family spa suite and it was extremely clean, modern and cosy. The beds were more comfy than those at our home. The spa/bathroom spotless and spacious. The pool and outdoor spa fresh, clean and relaxing. Not one complaint, we will make this our motel to be whenever touring the Otways and the great ocean road.

Room Tip: Family rooms are quiet and private.

This was one of the best motels that we stayed in during our month tour of Australia. The motel is conveniently located near to the main road passing through Torquay, but the location is quiet and has easy access to the town's shopping area and restaurants. Our room was clean and comfortable, and contained all the usual amenities of an Australian motel room. We particularly enjoyed the good-sized pool and the surrounding sun lounger area. The staff who manage the motel were very friendly and welcoming.

On leaving the motel, I inadvertently left behind a pair of spectacles. The motel contacted me by e-mail to let me know and then arranged for the spectacles to be properly packed and sent to my home address in England, at my expense of course. This was exceptional customer service.
