We stayed at the whalers rest motel in portland for one night as we were visiting family in portland. We had a room for two adults and one child.A single bed and a double bed,must say these are the best and most comfortable beds and pillows we have even had in a motel,also they have electric blankets. Very clean room and clean bathroom. TV,microwave, kettle,toaster. BBQ area...check in was fast and easily. Very nice place to stay and its the very first motel on left driving in to portland from Melbourne. 5min drive to beach and shopping centre... Sorry but I forgot to take a photo

It was away from buzz therefore its pretty quiet. Room 1 was huge and clean. We had peaceful sleep the night we stayed there. It was a bit dim in the room but still ok. Staff was friendly. We will stay again.

The location was quiet despite being just off the main highway. The room was very spacious, clean & well equipped. The beds were comfortable, good quality linen & toiletries provided. Definitely value for money. The hosts were friendly & helpful. Will stay again anytime.

The Whalers Rest is on the main highway into Portland so is easy to find and only 5 min drive to town centre where there are a variety of dining options. The rooms are very clean and comfortable beds. The rooms are set well back from road and there is no traffic noise. Great overnight stop at a budget price. Recommend.

Reasonably priced, excellent bed, wonderful block-out curtains and decent shower pressure, what more could you want?! It was blowing a gale outside and we were snug and warm in our cozy brick room. :-D
