“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

What a great room to find at the end of a long journey!
The Lakeview Motel is situated on a hill to the left as you are coming into Robe and is well signposted. We were very impressed with the decor and quality of fittings in what is a very comfortable, spacious and well thought our unit. One of the best motels that we stayed in during a two week tour of South Australia, we were so happy that we picked the Lakeview. Arriving after dark we were more than pleasantly surprised when opening the curtains in the morning to find great views over the lake...shouldn't have been a surprise really given the name!
With BBQ and a spacious and well screened alfresco area you have the options to cook at home or try the range of great eateries in town. All this coupled with great hosts who are super friendly and happy to point you in the right direction so that you enjoy all that Robe has to offer. The Lakeview Motel is the ideal choice for either a short or long stay or if you are travelling or holidaying. Located a short walk (less than a kilometre) from the shops in the centre of town and coastline it provides an ideal base to explore this delightful coastline or simply relax and recharge the batteries. Thanks for the wonderful stay!

The owner very definitely has an eye for design. The beds have a very nice bed runner on top of white comforter covers. The kitchen & bathroom are also well equipped and clean. The lake view from the room is great.
The motel is walking distance to the main street and we had a terrific dinner at Sails. It was a good thing, the motel owner recommended us to pop into the restaurant in the afternoon to make a booking because we saw quite a few people being turned away while we had our dinner.

We were heading for Adelaide via the Great Ocean Road and pre booked this from home before our trip.

This was by far the best accommodation we had on the trip down the GOR. Unfortunately it was only for one night, but the amenities were great, service was great and outlook was great. With free wifi and a free upgrade, we were well pleased.

We had an overnight stay on our way back home, checked both standard and executive room, found standard room looked OK but beds seemed to have saggy mattress and tired looking kitchen area compared to executive room which we took. The bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean. The price of $145 was a little too high as it was off season. The garden out the back was well maintained and the view to the lake was lovely.

Room Tip: check out executive room and standard room before booking

We were recently travelling from Adelaide to the Great Ocean Road. We stayed one night at this property and found the service exceptional. Not only did the owner suggest the best restaurant in town but he made a booking for us. He also suggested some vantage points for sunset viewing. We parked at the door of our room and from the back door we had stunning views of the lake.

Room Tip: I would imagine all rooms have views over the lake

This was our first stop on our Great Ocean Road trip coming from Adelaide - first impressions were very positive in comparison to some establishments we'd driven past that looked as if they belonged in the Wild West!
The motel is about a 10 minute walk from the Main Street, really easy to find as you're driving into town. The lady on reception was really friendly and welcoming and it was superb to have decent laundry facilities, including a tumble drier on hand.
Our room was large with a double and single bed, dining table, sofa and coffee table and a stunning lake view. The kitchen was one of the best equipped self catering kitchens I have ever used, including egg cups which we made use of to have boiled eggs and soldiers in the morning. The bathroom was spotlessly clean - and take note, that's where the hair dryer is stored, took me ages to find which drawer it was in!
Only two slight gripes - the bed was a bit bouncy for my liking, but that's a personal preference and at about 9.45pm we ascertained that either the ceiling or the walls were quite thin as we heard a crescendo of short-lived 'oh yes' noises coming from an adjoining room which we found very funny, but others might not. WiFi coverage was great.
