This is a great place to stay in Robe. Exceptionally clean and well kept. They even have a special rainwater tap that is filtered for drinking. (a positive in South Australia!) The owners go out their way to make your stay enjoyable.

Room Tip: We had a spa room which was lovely.

Hi 723traveller, Thank you for your review of our motel, we really appreciate it. Whilst we may be an older property we try to make up for it with keeping our place very clean & well maintained. Having good water for tea & coffee as well as for drinking is a must & that is why we have our rainwater double filtered and UV Scanned. Thanks once again & hope to see you again.
Kind regards
Martin Stanley

Thank you Martin and Trudie for a very enjoyable one night stay at your motel. We had unit 10 which was very clean and comfortable, plenty of hot water and free wifi. The continental breakfast was good too. Robe is a very pretty, unspoilt town and worth visiting.

Hi Speges
Thank you for your review of our motel. The room you had was a Studio Apartment which is very large and as you say very clean. We pride ourselves on our cleanliness. We have been offering our guests FREE WIFI for over four years and only recently had a completely new system installed which is very quick & trouble free. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip & we look forward to seeing you gain one day.
Kind regards

Martin (a 70 year old with a wicked sense of humour) runs the Best Western motel in Robe.We had unit no. 1. It’s pretty big as motel units go and perfectly good for an overnight stay. I concur with everything that has been previously said about this motel - clean, comfortable, surprisingly quiet, quality attention to detail, a decent continental breakfast and there are laundry facilities on site too!
Martin told us that there is an arrangement with one of the restaurants for a free glass of house wine with every meal served to a Best Western guest, provided the room key is shown. It's decent food as well as the free wine. It's the closest eaterie to the motel too. Check it out.

Hi hatmanBanstead, Thank you for your great review of our motel. I have to tell you that I'm actually 71 but what's a year between people. My wife Trudy & her team are responsible for the cleaning of our rooms and they do a great job. We are in a quiet area because we are not on the main road & this helps with sleep quality. Our guest laundry has free washing liquid & it only costs $1 to use our machines. Thank you once again & I hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday
Kind regards Martin Stanley

What a great find! Nice comfortable clean and colourful rooms and a Manager who even waves you off!

Robe is lovely - don't stay anywhere else!

Martin will also give you the name of an excellent restaurant just down the road.

On arrival, Martin showed us to the room and made sure we had all the information that we needed to get the best from our stay.

Great value for money. Wifi and free dvd hire were good additions and the room was clean and well maintained.

Hi Goa4, Thank you for your review of our motel. We have been offering free Wi-Fi for nearly five years & only recently had a completely new system installed which is far superior to our previous system. Our DVD collection is now well over 400 DVD's and is a real winner with our guests as we continue to buy latest releases. Thanks once again Kind regards Martin Stanley
