slight smell of smoke inside to both rooms we booked. Quite roomy inside and the bed wasn't too bad. But check out time in the morning is quite sharp. The cleaners literally will tell you to get out cos they need to clean the room at 10am.

Furniture and decor desperately needs to be brought into the 21st century. The shower was horrendous. Overall, it was not a pleasant stay. The only positive I could find is that it is very close to the shops.

This room was a big surprise. It was huge! The bedroom had a queen and single bed with comfortable sitting chairs. There was a long baggage bench which was very handy as we were packing for a six day walk. The seperate bathroom was also large. The shower rose distributed water evenly and in good volume. The seperate kitchen was...

Stopped here for the first night on the GOR Bike tour. Conveniently located the hotel was like a motor inn, although we only had bikes ! The rooms were spacious, and contemporary, and had all the basics that we required. Would stay again.

Paid $129 for Thursday night this month. It was in a very central and easy to find location in town and as the name suggests it is beachside (across the road from the beach). Staff provided a friendly and efficient check in and kind advice on the nearby places to eat seafood. The room was spotless/clean older in build but...

A one night get away. The location is great, the facilities basic but adequate. Nothing to write home about! More attention could be paid to mould in the shower recess and to the rusty fittings. If I had to add more words I'd suggest that a professional designer would make better use of the space. There's very little storage in...

We stopped here overnight on our trip through the GOR and found the room spacious, clean and comfy. You couldn't want more for an overnight stay at a great price! The visitor information centre is just over the road, you can walk across the road to the beach and everything is within walking distance :) We'll be back.

Our last minute stay at this motel while driving the Great Ocean Road was great. Whilst it's a little dated looking, the room was well equipped with all the things we could want for a comfortable overnight stay. The motel overall is well maintained, the owners were friendly and made check in and out a breeze, a great spot for...

Best motel we've stayed at for a while. Friendly helpful staff, close to the restaurants and cafes. First time a motel room has had enough power points for all the devices we need to charge - double points both sides of the bed, and along each wall. One excellent feature which should be mandatory in all hotels was the low...

This is a very well looked after motel. It is modest, being its original 1970's style, but well-maintained and spotlessly clean. The soft furnishings (bed, chairs etc) are new and good quality so a good night's sleep. Despite being on the main road, it is quiet at night. Handy to the shops, and an excellent small supermarket just around the...
