The staff here were very helpful and very knowledgeable about the restaurants in the area as well as tourist sites to visit. Loved the upgraded rooms, very spacious with a kitchenette too. Our bed was very comfy and it was great to have a single bed on which to put our extra suitcase. The continental breakfast was brought to our room in the evening, so we could have it when it suited us.

Hi fwemhall,
Thank you very much for your review of our motel we really appreciate it. We do try hard to please our guests and I suppose by repainting & with new curtains certainly lift the room. Our apartments actually have a full kitchen rather than a kitchenette whilst our standard rooms have a microwave, electric kettle and toaster. All of our rooms have crockery, cutlery etc. Thank you for staying with us & we hope to see you again.
Kindest regards
Martin Stanley

We stayed for 3 night and we could have stayed longer time permitting. It was a pleasure to have a professional operating the facility who knew the town, restaurants as well as the surrounding area extremely well. Martin's advice made the visit memorable.
The rooms were very clean and tidy as well as the bed comfortable.

Room Tip: Ask advice from Martin and ascertain your need for kitchen facilities

Hi kobr5688,
Well what can one say except thank you for such a great review. As you noted we try really hard to ensure all our guests have a great stay at our place. It makes a difference to the stay when people are here for more than one night as we get the opportunity to have a good yarn. We really appreciate the time you have taken to write this review and we look forward to seeing you again.
Kindest regards
Martin Stanley

Arrived late afternoon after long drive from Port Fairy. We were warmly welcomed by Martin and Trudy who had realised we were travelling with another couple and had placed us in adjoining rooms. Martin showed us to our rooms and demonstrated how to operate air con etc. The room was large with double and single beds, sofa, table and chairs. Kitchenette had fridge/freezer, microwave, cooker, toaster and kettle along with crockery/cutlery. Comfortable bed, extremely clean and very homely. We made use of the guest laundry with complimentary detergent. The garden was lovely to sit in and enjoy a cup of tea and TimTams. A really lovely welcoming place.

Hi Grandmafrog,
Thank you kindly for your lovely review of our motel. As you say we have free detergent for our laundry & by giving this to our guests it ensures that our machines do not get clogged up with the various powders etc. It also is a bonus for our guests. The small charge of $1 per wash or dry helps to pay for the electricity & water used. We are proud of our cleanliness & only this year we won an international award from Best Western for the Cleanliness & maintenance of our rooms.
Our lawned area and BBQ is a great place to sit out and enjoy the sunshine particularly with summer approaching. You are also correct in suggesting that one night isn't enough in our lovely little town.
All the best and thank you once again for your review.
Kindest regards
Martin Stanley

We were met by Martin and Trudy and were immediately made to feel very welcome. A personal touch to be shown to our rooms and have everything explained to us. The rooms were very well equipped with oven, microwave, toaster etc and pots and pans so had we been staying a little longer would have been ideal for a bit of self catering. Great for toast in the morning and making up our picnic. There are a few other motels we have stayed in that could do with taking a few lessons from Martin and Trudy. If ever we pass through Robe again this is where we'll stay.

Hi giotto79Perugia
Thank you for your review of our motel & apartments. We do have a very good laundry which only costs $1 per wash and $1 per dryer. We even have a clotheline out the back of the laundry where guests may hang out their washing. Our laundry gets used extensively by our international guests as it is much cheaper than the majority of other places.
Thank you once again for your review and we hope that you enjoyed your time in our country.
Kind regards
Martin Stanley
