Received a friendly welcome. Took us to our room, gave us milk and a map of the area, explained how to use the TV, etc. and even reminded us about the time change! The electric blanket came in handy. Nice walk into town where we had dinner at the suggested restaurant Café Belgiorno (it was delicious!) and had free wine...

This motel is in a great location, just a block back from the main beach which is important during bad weather and high winds. An easy walk to restaurants and shops. The rooms are a little old, but are clean and have good facilities such as tea/coffee making, microwave, crockery. The hosts are extremely welcoming and helpful with sound recommendations...

The accommodation is nothing special, basic but clean. Overpriced for a motel but we managed a comfortable night's sleep. Robe is a super destination, and a must-see if travelling between Adelaide and Melbourne. This motel is within easy walking distance of everything that Robe has to offer, a pint or two and dinner at the Caledonian Inn is a must....

Hi Charlie e. Thank you for your review of our motel & we are sorry that we did not meet your expectations. You have made a couple of unfortunate assumptions in your review to which I would like to respond. Firstly you complained about the price of the room before you decided to stay so you had every opportunity to...

This motel would have been perfect had the blackout not happen that night we check in. The staff is very friendly and shows us everything we need to know about the room with a spa bath. It looks good and spacious plus it finally has free WIFI for us to connect to everyone at home. I am so thrilled to...

Hi JorinGoh, Thank you for your review of our motel. It was indeed unfortunate that the whole town had a blackout the night you stayed with us. As you said we have torches available for all of our guests in such cases. We have installed solar lights right around the motel as well which serves us by not having to...

Stayed here one night whilst travelling Great Ocean Road. Host Martin is fabulous. Was really obliging with everything. Everything else was, well, awful. The room was clean though. Pillows were awful and the bathroom was more like a cupboard with a toilet shower and sink in. The water pressure was diabolical in the shower. The sliding door came off its...

Hi Julie P. Thank you for your review of our motel. I consider your comment "Everything else was, well, awful" the opposite view of most of our guests. We realize that our motel is an older one but we try to make up for it with our cleanliness and hospitality. Yes the bathroom is small but it is certainly not...

Stayed here last week with my wife and had a comfortable night. The hot water for the shower wasn't hot enough for my normal bath, however the hot water from the sink tap was excellent so I told the host about this during check out and he said he'll have his plumber check the bathroom where we stayed. They also...

Hi mitanahoney. Thank you for your review of our motel we appreciate it. It was great that you commented on the hot water to me as we had the plumber come and check out the HWS.

I decided to stay in Robe after just driving into town on a road trip and decided I liked the feel of it so much I wanted to stay the night.
