Best Western Melaleuca Motel
Ranked #5 of 7 Hotels in Robe
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 14, 2011

We usually choose to stay in B+B's rather than a motel because the personal service is generally much better. For our stopover in Robe, however, after reading Tripadvisor reviews, we opted for the Melaleuca Motel.

It proved to be an excellent decision as this motel is run like no other I have stayed at. Martin & Trudy are perfect hosts & from the moment you arrive, you receive wonderful service. From being shown to your room & having everything explained to receiving advice about what to see & do in Robe. I asked about a restaurant for the evening, Martin gave me the options, & after we had decided, Martin phoned & made a booking.

The room was quiet, the beds comfortable & a free high speed internet connection is provided.

The Melaleuca Motel is a no frills establishment with better service than you will receive almost anywhere.

All of this for $110 for the night's stay. It was a very good experience.

Hi Mcdaddyn
it was a little embarrasing to read your review as it was so good. I am very happy that you are a regular reviewer or it could be seen to be self written. As we have said before we really do try very hard to exceed all of our customers expectations and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us.
Cheers & kind regards
Martin Stanley

We found this to be one of the best experiences we have had; and we have had many. Martin showed us how everything worked, advised us about local activities and features, and recommended a couple of good DVDs from his collection. The rooms were clean and tidy, the service was excellent, and the location (being slightly away from the main center of Robe) is very good. We will stay here again should we return.

As part of a 5 day group tour, we spent a night at Melaleuca Motel & Apartments. We were warmly welcomed to the motel and found our rooms very clean and well-maintained. Often don't see older motels refurbished quite so well as this one and the owners were very helpful in organising our group dinner at the nearby Hotel as well as meeting the individual needs of everyone who stayed.

Had an overnight stay here on a tour down the Great Ocean Road. Hotel is a bit of a step back in time furnishing wise but the people, their helpfulness, friendliness and enthusiasm for what they do, make up for it. Town is a little seaside town now but has a lot of history and you can walk round the coastal path if you have the time and energy.
If you're looking for a good meal in the evening, try the Sails - busiest and best restaurant in the town so you will have to book as soon as you arrive but definitely worth the effort

Stayed in January and was very impressed by owner. Very friendly, great value, good laundry. Robe is a delightful place to stay. Went for walk recommended by owner and enjoyed the lovely views. Do go to Robe, it is a great place to stay. We were travelling from Adelaide to Melbourne and Robe was definitely a high spot.

We were traveling with a 6 month old baby, so having a portable already set up in the second bedroom was great. They even had the curtains closed ready & sheets on the cot. The managers were great, very helpful. The value for money was great too, we had two bedrooms for the price of one in other places.
