Happy with our stay. Clean, friendly and easy to navigate into the parking and room etc. bed was comfier than expected and it was quiet. Could have a bit more curb side appeal but it is what it is, and that is a road side motel to bed down for the night.

We had to stay in colas overnight whilst visiting the relatives. Now look, colac is a pretty untidy town and very working class, but if you hit the right places, the local people are really friendly. This motel is a shining example of this. Helpful on the phone weeks before and just as helpful at check in. The rooms are fine. Nothing special. You can’t expect the world for the cheap prices they offer. Happy camper.

Had the pleasure of staying here last weekend and we were thrilled by every aspect of it. We had a large comfortable room which was impeccably maintained. The bed was superb, the shower was perfect, but the very best part was the owner who will be your favourite person while you’re in Colac. We will be returning again and again to this motel because of how lovely and helpful Graham is. We’re very happy to give Otway Gate Motel our most enthusiastic recommendation. - Ben & Kelly

This is a great hotel. Clean and tidy. Refurbished rooms. Getting a fresh coat of paint outside at the moment. Very helpful manager / owners. A bit of truck noise during the night. Highly recommended for a stop over. Walking distance to the Main Street
