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.

Lovely small motel, twin room was comfortable and cosy. Received free continental breakfast each morning (juice, bread, milk, jam, butter, vegemite and two choices of cereal). Quiet court with a brand new petrol station across the road. Lovely owners. Thank you Janeece and Bryan for a comfortable room and a great weekend.

Clean, comfortable and convenient. We’d just done three days hiking around Portland and looking for a place to rest up before our departure. Admella is close to everything you’d want and the staff were very helpful in getting us organised.

We just spent three nights at this lovely little motel. We were one block from the foreshore and could hear the waves crashing at night. Close to the CBD and restaurants. Very clean and comfy room with lovely hosts. Located in a court bowl so no through noisy traffic.

We met some friends here and stayed overnight. The bed was comfortable and the room clean. The motel is located in a good position, easy walk to restaurants and cafes. The check in staff where good to deal with.

Just a few meters away from main street. Very clean, friendly owner. With 10 rooms not that big.

Only a 2 minute walk to a small park including BBQ area (coin operated), habour view.

Portland itself is more an industrial habour city so don't be disappointed.

I echo the compliments given by the the others as this is really a well run budget motel. This will put many other full service motels to shame, I think the difference is the owners and they run it so well, well above budget status. The place is well maintained and really clean. There is fresh milk, proper kitchen utensils, a laundry etc. Its at a the end of a short street so this means the place is really quiet. It is near to the beach and the shops/eateries/CBD. It also only has 10 rooms which means the place becomes easier to run and the service becomes so much more personal. If there was any negative, I got led to a different place by my iPhone GPS. Not the fault of the motel but a software malfunction by Apple. So for all you travelers using an iPhone, please do not use the GPS from iOS6, but use your common sense.

Friendly operators, genuinely interested in your stay. Fresh milk provided. The site is old, but very well maintained and clean and fresh smelling.
I was so impressed with my first visit that I booked it again for the return journey. The location in a cul de sac means it is quiet. Easy walking distance to eateries, shops etc.

. I went to Fort Fairy over the Australian Day long weekend, as too late to book any affordable accommodations around there, I booked this motel in Portland.
The Motel is located in a small court which is just off the main road, so it's a bit quieter compared sit right on the road, it's is one block away from the man shopping area where you can find Safeway and other major shops. A petrol station is just opposite the street,. MacDonald’s is on other side of the block.
The room is basic, with microwave oven, and little kitchenette, but throughout it’s very clean, and fresh painted. Check in/out is easy and quick. They provide a small bottle of fresh milk for tea or coffee.
The main beach and playground is just 5 min walk distance. Overall it’s quite nice small motel.

I reserved a room in the motel and unfortunately due to *my mistake* I had booked on the wrong night and when I arrived the hotel was already full. The owner went out of her way to
1. Organise another motel for me
2. Drove me there
3. Refunded my booking.

How good is that? Fantastic service... thanks guys.
