They say it's a three star motel with friendly staff and they were right - made very welcome by David and his very informative wife - by the way if u want a job owners are looking for a manager - able to see room before I paid and as 3 star has everything you need - clean and comfy - fridge / microwave / kettle with tea & coffee and even an iron - electric blanket and air con - seating outside on porch area and sofa in room. Room 17 was really quiet which was great. She even left wifi on all night for me so I could keep in touch with UK - thank you

Ant and David provide a very friendly and welcoming experience. They are both very knowledgable about the town and it's attractions passing on information that enables you to see the best the town has to offer. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they always willing to have a chat and make you feel welcome.

When we booked the motel we were told by the new manager David and his lovely wife that the restaurant will not be open due to renovations, not a problem. They have done a marvellous job with some of the rooms having complete new bathroom, shower and toilet areas. Carpets are next which will make a huge difference. The rooms are very clean and tidy with a 3 star rating but we give it 3.5 stars. Queen size bed was very comfortable and also new flat screen TV and Free WiFi to use. There is still a lot to do and we can recommend a stay at the motel will be worth it. The rooms are very quiet due to the thick stone walls when it was built back in 1860. Clean and comfortable what more do you need. The managers go out of their way to help make it a pleasant time while in Robe.
The swimming pool had been let go by previous owners and David is doing his best to have it ready for the warmer weather and he will.

Room Tip: Just ask for the upgraded rooms

Thanks Peter we may be a little rough around the edges at the moment but the rooms are coming along nicely, a bit like the manager! Since your stay we have had the restaurant floors polished and new carpets put in 5 of the rooms. Swimming pool has been drained and will be restored to its former glory by December. You will have to come back and see the improvements and we always look after our returning guests.

We bought a promotion offer to stay at the Guichen Bay Motel and were very happy with the
accommodation. While it is rated as 3 star, what impressed us was the cleanliness, great bath towels and really nice bed linen, which all made our stay very comfortable. The carpet could do with replacing, but not a major issue. It was great to have a two seater lounge in the room. Antonella was extremely helpful and obliging with any enquiries we may have had. Good location in the main street, able to walk to wherever we wanted to go. Even though it was very cold and wintry - it was July after all, we were very comfortable in the room - good air conditioner and electric blanket. Would definitely recommend this motel - and we would not hesitate to stay again - even without a promotion deal.

it is always a treat when our guests reviews mention cleanliness and comfort, as we strive to provide the best service and accommodation that we can. We are so fortunate here at the Guichen Bay Motel to be so central that we are within walking distance of a host of fine eateries and places of interest.

We are still in the middle of our renovations and that carpets' days are numbered. Hope to see you soon.

If you are after a room that is basic but enough for a nice stay in town then this is your place. The hosts Ant and David are knowledgable locals and willing to have a chat and let you know the must sees in town.

The hotel is situated right on the edge of town so you can stroll up the main streets and look at the neat little shops.

I would stay here again for sure!

We think it's important to make our guests feel comfortable and to let them know what's around to see and do in Robe and the surrounding area. As we are located on the main road of Robe and if you don't feel like driving you can stroll to most of our restaurants, shops and other places of interest .

Thank you for your review and will see you in the future.
