Finally got a few days off with the family and decided to head south to stress out, found ourselves in Robe late afternoon and liked the look of the place so decided to stay the night. Picked the Robetown Motor Inn for no real reason and turned out to be a great choice. Reasonably priced by any standard, rooms were certainly up to the task, well appointed and very clean and comfy. Nothing out of the ordinary there, just good value. What made the difference for us was the fantastic hosts; friendly, engaging, full of local knowledge, tips and ideas, extremely helpful and eager to please, nothing too much trouble. Ended up sharing dinner and drinks with them in the outdoor (enclosed) kitchen/BBQ/dining area where guests can cook for themselves. What a bonus when travelling with the family, much cheaper than eating out every meal. Bit cool during our stay for us to use the indoor pool but looked really nice: good clean facility the kids would love, just put that in the memory file for next time. The night was so much fun with Dave and Tina our hosts and with the clean fresh sea air (and maybe a few glasses of wine) we slept like babies. Next morning Dave gave us some great ideas of where to go and what to see, and it turned out instead of moving on down the coast as planned we spent the next two and a half days following Dave's advice and directions touring around the Robe district and of course staying at the Robetown Motor Inn. Had a great time, discovered places and people we would never have seen, and really enjoyed our short break. Nice Place, Great People, Good Value. What more can you ask. Thoroughly recommend it.
