Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our glorious room was a joy with a magnificent bathroom. Staff all great. Food downstairs was 100% fantastic. Locals call it the MAC as that was the original name. Service at all times was utterly perfect. Restaurant downstairs is so popular with locals that we came to realize that it was better to book a table in advance

Hotel's Favourite
My wife and I were recently in Portland, Victoria Australia. The Quality Hotel is three floors and does not have an elevator. My wife has a very hard time with steps and they had put us on the third floor. I asked for a first floor room and they said they did not have one left. A manager near the front desk told the desk clerk the Presidential Suite was available. That sounded great, but it was twice the rate. She said give it to him at the standard rate. That was Great! She did not have to do that, it was around 7:00 PM so it probably would not have rented but to give it to us at the standard rate was a really nice gesture and one that was really appreciated. The room lived up to the name. The woodwork was beautiful, the furnishings exquisite, the bathroom had a wonderful huge tub. I would highly recommend this place just for this jester alone.

We stayed at this hotel whilst travelling the Great ocean Road. It is an older hotel but the room we were given was absolutely lovely. The room was large and comfortable as was the bathroom. We also ate in the hotel in the evening. The meals we had were delicious, my steak was tender and succulent. A continental breakfast was included in the price of the room - fruit, cereals, yoghurt, toast and drinks. Plenty to keep us going for the rest of the day. I can't recommend this hotel too highly

Stayed 2 nights when visiting Portland recently and was very impressed with the standard of our room. We had one of the large rooms on the first floor over looking the seafront. Beautiful room, very spacious and had a good range of items in the mini bar plus good choice of complementary hot drinks and biscuits, including a nespresso machine and pods. They room price includes a nice continental breakfast in the dining room, cereal toast and hot drinks plus juice. The lady serving breakfast was lovely. Hot breakfast can be ordered and paid if you wish. The hotel is not cheap, but it is very nice and is in a good spot, with parking too. There is a very good restaurant next door called Clock by the Bay, and you can get a decent pub meal at the hotel too. I would stay again for sure. Only warning - no lift so if you can't manage a staircase, this is not the place for you.

without doubt this is the BEST place to stay in Portland AND the BEST place for meals. Locals all call it the MAC hotel. I nearly could not find it as I was looking for a " hotel Bentinck". Thank goodness the taxi driver - excellent and well informed and originally from Scotland - was well aware of the correct place I had prebooked after I described what I had read about the said hotel. On day two I realised I had not packed a warm enough cardigan or jumper. A well informed taxi driver found me a lovely shop where I was able to find a charming soft jumper and a similarly soft and warm cardigan. The same taxi driver took me on a tour of Portland at my request and his knowledge of Portland was extensive. I was able to visit the great annual display of Dahlias on the Saturday and the Sunday - .created by the Portland Dahlia society. It was the best Dahlia show I have ever attended in Australia - very well run in an airy big hall with a sale of dahlia flower stems in bloom and potted dahlias for sale. My room at the MAC hotel was gorgeous with sea views and one wall of bluestone in both bedroom and bathroom. Restaurant was full every night and no wonder - food and service perfect in every way. Michael in the restaurant was excellent - with good advice and a great ambassador for Portland. Lovely housekeeping staff at the MAC were very kind, professional and pleasant and discreetly kept my room spotless - every time I returned to the MAC I found my room perfect. I had plenty of hanging space for clothing. Bed was perfect as was the temperature in my room. very nice writing paper and envelopes in a drawer in my room. Also well stocked fridge and lovely toiletries in bathroom. I looked around the town during several walks and MAC hotel was clearly the STAR venue - coupled with good advice from the front desk and the two well informed taxi drivers - so I was able to discover far more than if I had not been able to hear their wisdom and their advice

Several excellent features: first all staff were extremely friendly and made us both feel very welcome. Second the room was both very comfortable and very tastefully appointed. It was large and spacious and the king-size bed was most comfortable. Menu for evening meals was broad-ranging and very generous portions when meals arrived. My scotch fillet steak was most tasty and melted in my mouth. Overnight costs included free drinks and free continental breakfast, making it extremely good value indeed.

We were lucky to be entertained for a late lunch at Quality hotel at Bentinck Street, Portland. Seeing the interior I could imagine the early Victorian lifestyle in Portland where the city would have been an important centre of Victorian migration. Pub was very impressive and reflected the old colonial era. “Rib Eye fillet steak” we ordered was extremely tender, tasty and done to perfection. We were extremely happy with our dining experience.

Mac's Hotel/Hotel Bentinck is a beautiful historic pub, located near the waterfront and a very short walk to the main street. The rooms were spacious and full of character, furnished to suit the feel of the hotel. The bed was very comfortable, shower was fine and the room was large enough to feel comfortable to spend a night in if you have had a long day. There is no lift, so it is a bit of a pain if you have a lot of luggage. The restaurant downstairs in the hotel had an extensive menu and was very well patronized however was a little on the expensive side with both food and drink. There are several other options for dining or a drink nearby. The

THE GOOD Nice rooms, spacious and great bed. Nice tv THE BAD No microwave. I get it. You want people to use your restaurant or room service. But someone who uses a microwave will generally not use your restaurant THE UGLY Lost property & service I forgot an item and called 2 days later. Was told it had been handed in, person could however, not locate it. And from there it just became a revolving door with me calling and the same person giving me excuses. Eventually after 4 phone calls from me the item misteriously appeared and free postage was offered to me. However, 2 weeks later it still had not arrived. Called for the 5th time and was assured it had been sent the day after we spoke previously. When I asked the person to check the following day with housekeeping the excuses started again. I was told she was not working the next couple of days and when I called the following day, who answered the phone? You guessed it. At no time was an effort made to get back to me and after the first call I got this feeling the item would never return!! What was my expectation? Room attendant handed the item in on Thursday morning. Pick up the phone and call the guest. I had checked out but was working in Portland till 4pm. I could have picked it up. Poor service. First time my business used this hotel and will be the last
