Anglesea Riverside Motel offers comfortable accommodation, access to great facilities and an ideal location to explore some of Anglesea's most popular landmarks. We are located in the heart of this beautiful seaside town, opposite the Anglesea River and just a short walk away main beach access and the Surf Coast Walk. The property, formerly known as Anglesea Motor Inn, is under new ownership and was fully renovated in 2021. We have a number of newly renovated deluxe rooms available and a three-bedroom apartment, all with tea and coffee making facilities and free wi-fi. If you’re looking for something to do, Coogoorah Park Nature Reserve (0.5 mi) is a nice way to spend some time, and it is within walking distance of Anglesea Riverside Motel. Our friendly staff will ensure you have a lovely stay and look forward to welcoming you soon!

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.

Rooms are extremely clean, spacious and light-filled. Bathrooms are very outdated (think late 1980s). Owner has told me they are about to close for renovations which will be a welcome change. It is a basic room and a little pricey for what you get. It would have been good to have a couch or tub chair that was comfortable as the to wicker chairs are very uncomfortable. Bed was great as were pillows. As walls are made from besser brick, there were no issues with noise from neighbours. I was fortunate to get a river view room which was lovely, however I found the road noise an issue, as you are right on the street. If you are not used to noise it will keep you up at night. I have suggested to the owners they should consider double glazed windows. Location is fantastic, within walking distance of all amenities and right opposite the river. There was no ironing board or iron, but providing dishwashing liquid was a handy touch. Being able to use facilities at Great Ocean Road Resort is a real bonus.

Hi Keisha, thank you for the review. We understand our bathrooms are very dated and we have further plans to finish the renovations we have started very soon! We will also look to make changes that will eliminate road noise as we located on the Great Ocean Road. We'd love to have you stay again in the future and when our renovations are finished so we can provide an even better experience.

Stayed at Anglesea Riverside Motel for 4 nights recently. Location is great - river, beach, shops, cafes all within a short walking distance. Whilst it is on the main road the traffic noise did not bother us but could see it would be an issue if you are in a room facing the street. Room was basic - comfortable and clean though there were a few carpet stains, bed was comfortable, basic cutlery / dishes were provided along with a toaster. Bathroom was very small and 70's style, a couple of shelves and some hooks behind the door would be helpful as there was not much room to put / hang things. There was a small outdoor pool but didn't see anyone use the pool. You can use facilities at the Great Ocean Rd Resort which is 2 doors down which was a great bonus as they have an indoor heated pool. Overall the room was what you would expect for the price.

Riverside is well located, clean and very well set up with toaster, microwave, crockery. And good wine glasses! The bath towels are fabulous, much better than your usual motel quality. Access to resort facilities next door is a bonus. We tried the $15 breakfast the first morning, it comes from the resort kitchen. At $15 it was disappointing. Coffee and one food item but poorly presented. We could cope with that if it had been hot but the coffee was luke warm too. Plenty of better options nearby, even coles express! However, motel itself was excellent value.

I appreciate the splash of colour, however I don’t think it’s worth $200 a night - still a very basic room. I stayed at your other property last time down the road and it was a lot more comfortable. The bathroom has no space at all , lack of iron/board/hairdryer. Room wasn’t made up when we were out all day. A smart TV would go a long way - Small things that I would expect for the money spent.

A very disappointing place to stay. Rooms are old, noisy vent in bathroom, no sugar provided, milk not replaced on second day. Room not serviced just clean towels on day two. No one in the office till the Monday. Guests are able to use pool and gym at the Great Ocean Resort three doors up, but heater not working in the pool or spa, water freezing! I won’t be back!

Hey Lisa, thank you for taking the time to review us. We'd like to let you know that although we did our best to advertise the issues with the pool, unfortunately there was an issue with our pool heating. The pool has been fixed and we have improved our room servicing. We apologise again for the inconvenience these issues caused you during your stay.

Thanks for asking.
I am unsure of the managers level of competence.
His absence was severely felt by myself and two other sets of travellers.
We all booked on line through bookings.com and on arrival there was no one in the reception only a land line number that was not answered after numerous attempts.
The young German tourist and I went to ask around town. I was told by the service station staff member to go to the property across the road owned by the same people.
What a stuff around. The dude eventually rocked up in his Benz no apology no explanation took my credit card and gave me the key.
I apologised to the young German couple for the attitude of the owner and tried to convince them all Australians were not so …. Rude and disappointing.
Later that evening 10.30 pm a Canadian couple had the same experience.
I walked them across to the other property and I found their key for them. I also apologised to them for the incompetence.
Why in this day and age is there no mobile number.
Obviously the manager had better things to do!
Really slack really sloppy and really embarrassing lack of service and manners!
So thanks for asking and I will repost this review where maybe it will be read and perhaps you could lift your game.

Comfortable room, clean and well-provisioned. Positioned perfectly opposite the river and beach as it is walking distance to everything in Anglesea and easy (and scenic) driving to everything else in the area. This is our second stay and we would return whenever we can.

Clean and comfortable room with all amenities. Very friendly staff and great for the local beach. Some rooms are adjacent to the Great Ocean Road so can be a little noisy.
Linked with local hotel so you can also use their amenities. Local supermarkets close by

Convenient. Welcoming. Totally clean. Well provisioned. Microwave, coffee pod machine, toaster, kettle, crockery, glasses, cutlery, tea towel and detergent. Fabulous shower and large towels. And a very comfy bed. Positioned across from the river and within walking distance of (nearly) everything in Anglesea. There was nothing not to like and we really enjoyed our stay.
