This place in under new management and we found it to be very clean, quiet and good value for money. For $140 a night for a family of 4 we had a 2 bedroom family room, with cooking facilities (and a decent selection of utensils) and a spa bath. There were a few details that could have done tending with but I feel the owner is trying to catch up on alot of things that had been completely neglected by the previous manager. None of these were major, more aesthetic and general wear and tear. Our reverse cycle air con did not work, but the manager was quick to provide us with a fan heater which did the job.
The pool was closed too, despite being advertised as being solar heated.
The rooms felt quite private with bushes out the front so you had a little privacy and each room had a table and chairs outside, which was great!
The rooms were serviced daily, and the lady who came to clean was sweet, helpful and customer focussed.
There is a laundry on site and there is no charge whatsoever to use the washing and drying facilities. Now that's worth something in itself! Brilliant!
The grounds were well maintained and the owner was even on the ride on mower in the rain so he is dedicated! Parking is available and the location is on the Great Ocean Road so you are in a perfect spot for the 12 Apostles, London Bridge etc, much closer than Apollo Bay and half the price, but still quiet! Port Campbell itself is not a big place, but a good spot for a couple of days.
We do suggest you buy groceries before coming into Port Campbell as the small supermarket/bottle shop there has the monopoly and charges like a wounded bull. It was scary what they charged! Easily double that of a regular supermarket. We asked a local and they said to head into Timboon (17km away) where there is a much better priced IGA (and it was!).
We found the Port Campbell Motor Inn to be great value for money and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again, especially if the current owner continues with his improvements. Very pleased overall.
