Reviewed 1 August 2013

Reception person was very helpful and suggested places to eat. Free Wi fi which worked well. Room was spacious and bed very comfortable. Room at night was rather light , but the wooden venetian blinds could not be adjusted to cut down the light. T.V. has 3 remotes. Easy enough to sort out with the instructions but a lot of channels were unavailable.
One poor feature was a request to wash dishes used, but there was no sink in the room, only the bathroom hand basin which we thought was not the best for washing dirty dishes in. It was also hard to fill the electric jug under the hand basin taps.
Was very quiet and peaceful during the night. Possibly a little expensive for the facilities provided.

We thought this was quite a nice place to stay albeit pricey for what it was.
The room was spacious and quite nicely furnished...............very clean and offered tea making facilities, proper sink, fridge, microwave, cutlery Aus Star TV.
Nice big bathroom with bench space.
Parking at the rear.

Easy level access from the front entry should you have mobility problems........steps at the rear entry.

Conveniently located to all things in town.

If outside budget talk to the lady who is very nicec and you may be surprised..............depending on the time of year.

The only negative I had was they only offered ONE pillow per person.

We booked into this motel the day after Anzac Day and paid $125.00 per night but it was worth about &75.00. It was clean but very small with very bad lighting. Everything was old and very basic. The TV was very confusing to use but it was very handy to the shops. I definitely wouldn't recommend this to others.

The room is simple. No other light than a bulb in the ceiling. The bed mattress was horrible. And the much advertised Telstra on had a few channels. The only reason to stay at this motel and in Port Campbell is the that it is close to the 12 Apostle. I will stay in another town next time.

No complaints, pretty decent motel for a reasonable price. Room was big and had everything we needed. Motel is a little old but has been renovated so everything still works. TV was a little confusing (three remotes) and most of the foxtel channels didn't work which was a little frustrating but everything else about this place is great.

When I first heard a friend had booked us in this motel I was worried. Motels are places I prefer to avoid at home in the US. But what a surprise. This place was well located, inexpensive, very clean, had a small kitchen, a cute porch, a garden and free WIFI (Woohoo).

The motel was fine, big room, nice seating area outside overlooking the garden. Wifi didnt work very well in our room as we were quite far from the reception and that seems to be the point where the router is located. It has enough parking space, fridge, big tv, microwave. Basically everything you need.
