Absolutely nothing positive to say!! You had to ask for the spa to heated and also had to pay for the spa bubbles. Owners were very reluctant to assist in any enquires and also hung up the phone when trying to call them to ask a question. Housekeepers cleaning toilet without washing hands then touching clean towels and putting milk...

Arrived at 3:45pm to find the disabled room wasn't ready. The kind lady suggested we look around town for 20 minutes or so. I expect there had been a mix up and she hadn't realised that my 88 year old father and I needed the disabled room. The lady kindly supplied fresh milk. The disabled room is near reception and...

We loved the Tropicana. It is in a good location close to the beach, shops and restaurants yet very quiet. It is very well maintained and has nice facilities like a pool and a BBQ area. We were upgraded to a Spa Room that had a very nice whirpool bathtub. The room was incredibly clean. Also it had a small...

Took my two sons there last weekend and we had a great time visiting Torquay and the Great Ocean Road.The proprietress was very friendly and helpful; the family room was adequately large and very clean. It has a microwave, crockery and cutlery, and kettle. The beds were surprisingly comfortable and much more so than most of the much more expensive...

We had a lovely stay here. The rooms were clean and bright, the owners were lovely and their Samoyd Casper is gorgeous. The only downside was that the hotel was advertised as having a spa and pool and when we got there both were closed for spring because of duck poop! When I complained they offered to refund our money...

Only stayed for one night but was a good experience. Room was clean and had free wifi that actually worked well. If I return to Torquay I would stay there again. Didn't order breakfast so can't comment on that. Owner seemed really lovely and helpful.

We have stayed here a few times - mainly due to its convenient location when visiting relatives. Tropicana is a typical single story roadside motel. The sort where you park your car in front of the room. Nothing particularly special, but its neat, tidy, comfortable and quiet. If your main objectives in a motel are to have somewhere reasonably priced...

Stayed there two nights last week. Had taken three rooms. The rooms were good and neat and the bathroom spotless and excellent. The only problem is that there were no lights when we reached in the night.. Not even one light and the place is also not walking distance to any cafes or restaurant's. You have to drive minimum 10...
