Large comfortable rooms and beds. Has tea coffee facilities with a bar fridge. Not too noisy apart from the waves crashing on the ocean. Interior was a bit shabby but for the budget price it was good value. Apart from the wifi which was unavailable in rooms and my son had to sit half way down the stairs to receive...

oIf you don't mind worn wood and somewhat faded furniture and bedding, this is good value. The releif staff is wonderful: Keira and her husband/colleague Glen went out of their way to help us. The location off the Great Ocean Road is very convenient. Although the Inn appears to be a one-night stopover for most guests, there's lots to do...

We stayed for one night at the Lighthouse Keepers In. Whilst not the Ritz it was certainly enough for a holiday rental by the sea. The room we had was large with a large bed, TV, Air Con, fridge etc all you'd expect. The bathroom was large and clean. The room had a private balcony with great views looking out...

The Lighthouse Keepers Inn Motel is conveniently located a few minutes walk from the centre of town. There are five units, all on the second floor. Sea views are great. Room was clean, tidy and spacious. Bed was very comfortable. Tea/coffee making facilities and toaster provided, but... There was an overwhelming smell of air freshener on arrival. The decor is...

This is in an extremely convenient location right near the shops and beach. The rooms are very comfortable bed and extremely clean. While not as modern as some other places, the value this place represents is fantastic. Genevieve is very welcoming and is very helpful with recommendations on where to eat etc. Recommend.

Positives: Although the room is decorated quite "Pink" inside, the room was very comfortable and quite spacious. Comfortable queen sized bed, table and chairs, couch, and a small balcony upon which to relax. The shower was hot and the heating inside the room was good. TV and wifi were adequate. Location was good; short walk to the main part of...

The view from our balcony room is amazing - the entire bay. The room itself is huge. Bed is comfortable and the rooms are clean. It is also right opposite the beach and walking paths. Walk to everywhere from the place. Don't let the decor put you off. I think it is supposed to be 'old world' so the carpet...

Wild and wintery. Staff were very friendly and well informed. Have been there some years ago and really enjoyed the new cold climate dinosaur exhibit. Not sure I would like the isolation myself! This is well worth a visit to see how far we have come with technology since cable communication.

Stayed overnight in this motel. It is in a great position with great views of the ocean from the small balcony and this is what you pay for with the premium prices. Room was spacious but decor was extremely dated and tired. Bedside clock was still set on daylight saving time more than a week after it ended. Bathroom was...
