Thank you for taking time out to write this review. We think it's important to make our guests feel comfortable and to let them know what's available in the town so that they may enjoy their stay. Being that we are centrally located on the main road of Robe, guesst are within walking distance to most of our restaurants, cafes, beaches etc so really there s no need to take out the car.

Now that you've been to Robe, we hope to see you again.

It's great. We have been visiting this motel for more than ten years, and under it's new owners it has lifted to a new level with ceiling fans, air-con, microwave, updated bathrooms and modern TV with some Foxtel channels thrown in. There's even free wi-fi. All at a very reasonable rate. Ok, the room we had was small-ish but who goes to Robe to sit in the motel and stare at the furniture? The new owners are keen to get honest feedback, the motel still has the best location to everything in the town, and while the kitchen/restaurant is still under renovation there are plenty of great break/lunch/dinner option either next door or a short walk. Been there/done that/will be back again and again.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review and your return visit, 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 to a host of fine eateries. In your case, I'm glad that you were been able to witness and appreciate our upgrades done to the room you occupied.

On your next trip to Robe, if you are considering a longer stay, we do have a Two Bedroom Suite with cooking facilities, dining and lounge area but as you say "who comes to Robe to stare at the furniture".

Hope to see you again.

Following the previous trip advisors reviews we choose to stay here for one night.
We were very pleasantly welcomed and given the oppertunity to have a look at the room before checking in.
The room is well equiped and clean.
A few things we noticed, the pool is delapidated for quite Some time.
The restaurant was no longer in use, the price however still the same even in low season.
The table in our room was found very small and unstable to say the least.
The airco needed interference by the owner to get it to work.
In short last Dec it changed owner I am convinced the present owners are making an effort.
However the overall appearance is not what we learned from trip advisor.
From my experience I know 110 dollar per night is overcharged for this type of hotel certainly in low season.

I take offence to the inference that our motel is not up to an acceptable standard. We make every effort to inform our guests of what to expect before they check in. Our restaurant is closed because the floor has just been resurfaced and the pool has been drained for repainting in time for summer. If the guest had made the correct setting on the air conditioner's remote control there would not have been the need for management intervention. Surprisingly the next guests in that room the very next day had no problem with the table in a room I might add that which has a new bathroom, curtains and a fresh coat of paint. These guest are clearly not what we consider family and not welcome back to our home. Thankfully a large number of our guests are.

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
