“Super Nice Motor Court”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2013

Easy access from the M1, on our way to the Great Ocean Road. This little Motor Court has very clean rooms with decent beds. Graeme is the proprietor and is eager to please. Free laundry and Wifi, to boot. Excellent value. We certainly would enjoy staying here again.

The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were big and very clean. Our room was around the corner and very quiet and comfortable. There are laundry facilities which was fantastic for us as we have been travelling for a few days and really appreciated this. Would recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a great budget motel. Very comfortable.

This place is fantastic! I have stayed at places and paid a lot more and weren't as good. It's very clean and very well priced! The host, Graeme cannot do enough for you and everyone is so friendly. Graeme helped out with storing my husbands pride and joy securely (his Harley) which was very much appreciated. I would wholeheartedly recommend this place.

Basic motel room, but clean and comfortable, At least mini-bar drinks were good price ($1.50 for soft drink!!!) And TV had lots of channels including Foxtel AFL !! I was lucky enough to get a spa room. Manager was friendly and gave helpful advice. There was an indoor pool, but didn't try it.

My parents and I stayed at this motel on our way to the Great Ocean Road. We stopped in Geelong because we wanted to get a little of the not so scenic portion of the drive done. so we would have more time to explore the next day. We got a little lost trying to find the motel because there are two sections of High Street - we were on the wrong section and it was dark. (We drove out right after getting into Melbourne Airport, so it was about 9pm by the time we get out to Geelong.) But, when we called the motel, one of the owners promptly drove out to meet us and lead us back to the motel.

When we got in, the owner was very gracious and made sure we were comfortable (making sure we had enough towels, soap, etc. and that the room was warm enough) before heading back to the front desk. The room was simple but immaculate. Everything was in working order and CLEAN. My dad is very nit-picky and one of the first things he said when we get into the room was to comment on how clean and well maintained the room was. He said "This man is a craftsman." On our trip we had already been in 4 other hotels (all of which were more expensive) and this was the first one that my dad actually approved of - in all the others parts were either dirty and/or broken - but this room was PERFECT.

I would highly recommend this motel; the managers are very warm and welcoming, the price is very affordable (we paid only $120 for a room with a queen and a single bed), and the room is very clean and well maintained.

Stayed here for one night after reading reviews on TA. It is certainly nothing flash, and being ranked #1 (currently) in Geelong, I guess Geelong isn't known for its fine accommodation! Room was clean but very basic. Located on a main road, and you can hear traffic easily from the room. Was very surprised to see an indoor pool, but it was covered over for the winter. There only appeared to be us, and one other room occupied, and we were located next door to each other. On booking in the gentleman had suggested that if we wished to wait we could get another room further away from the other people, but having driven for many hours, we're keen to get into a room. The parking is strange in that you park in front of the room next door (I guess there is some method in this??). The neighbour, whose car was parked in front of our room, awoke us at 6am starting up their vehicle. In hindsight we should have waited on checking in for that other room. Beds were comfy, heating was adequate.

iambox, Manager at Abbotswood Motor Inn, responded to this review, July 20, 2013
Our accommodation is 3.5 star rating. For the price and value we are ranked high on Tripadvisor. People often choose to stay in the city or waterfront but pay a higher price. Our pool is heated and is available all year round. It has a removable cover that can be wound off in 1 minute. We have this in place to conserve heating energy.

Stayed here for a couple of days over the Easter Long Weekend 2013 when visiting for the Rip Curl Pro at Bells Beach, Torquay.

Booked a room for $120 a night via lastminute.com.au only a day or two before arriving. The whole of Torquay and surrounding areas was booked out but this was only a 15 minute drive to the event so all good.

Welcomed at the reception by the owner who was very friendly and helpful and keen to ensure my stay was a good one.

The room was basic but did the job. The tv was a small flat screen and had some cable tv stations and had the sport channels so i was happy enough with that. The bathroom was clean but the soap and shampoo provided was minimal so I'd recommend taking your own.

The room also had a microwave and small fridge with some cans of soft drink and water at very reasonable prices.

Air con was provided.

The motel had an indoor pool which I didn't use but its a nice addition to any stay.

Each room had a car spot.

All in all, I would stay there again if visiting for a couple of days and just needed a base. If you want a luxury holiday, look elsewhere.

Location wise, its a close enough drive to Geelong, Torquay and the start of the Great Ocean Road.
