Best Western Melaleuca Motel
Ranked #5 of 7 Hotels in Robe
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 23, 2011

Seems everybody agrees that this is the place to stay in Robe and that Martin is the guy to see for anything you might need or want to know about the local area. He mapped out the coastal walk for us which was a highlight of our stay, also recommended Sails restaurant, a top place to eat . This motel has everything, a functional kitchen area with everything you'd need, roomy bathroom with a good shower and a spa bath, free internet, free access to an extensive DVD library and free filtered rain water available, this stuff would sell for $7.50 a bottle if you could buy it in the shops.
The Melaleuca is in a great central location. Itmay not be the most modern motel, but it is spotlessly clean and has exceptional service.

It was unlike us not to book ahead and read Trip Advisor reviews, however we weren't sure how far we would travel in the day. We ended up in Robe not knowing the 'best' accommodation. After trying two establishments and not satisfied - one with an arrogant manager and the other with no wi-fi, we came across the Best Western Melaleuca. Trudy could not have been more helpful and pleasant and even before seeing the room, we knew this was the place for us. Trudy showed us the room, and how to operate everything, made a restaurant booking for us and even gave us a review on the free dvd we chose!! A seniors discount was available upon request. The room has everything and more that you could require - m/wave, toaster, plates, fridge, wine glasses etc. And for me (which I find important), a face washer!! Non-noisy air conditioner which we appreciated after a very noisy one the previous night. It's not in the center of town but only a 7 minute walk to Sails Restaurant. Would definitely recommend this clean establishment for your visit to Robe. I can well understand why it has a No. 1 T.A. rating.

First of all, I picked this motel solely on the recommendations made on Trip Advisor, and I wasn't disappointed. The staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The room was tidy and clean with good amenities, and overall very good value. Would recommend to anyone planning a stop over in this lovely little town.

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

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.
