Stayed over night here and found it very pleasing. Very clean , enough room for 2 of us. Had a lovely looking pool but didn't get to use it, Was warmly welcomed by the manager and he mad sure we were settled in ok. Close enough walk to shops, around 10 mins. or 3mins by car.
My little family stayed at the Port Arlington Beach Motel on the 26th of December. The lovely managers booked us in with only a couple of hours notice and were very accommodating of our needs and circumstances. We stayed in the “managers residence” and could not have been happier. The accommodation was spotlessly clean, well set out, roomy, light filled, had everything we needed, beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. I highly recommend staying at this luxurious motel and enjoying this wonderful destination. We will definitely be back as 1 night was not enough.
Thank you Phil and Helen for everything. Your attention to detail, your hospitality, and your good ol' old fashion customer service is what many motels are lacking today. You made our stay special, and Helen I am so pleased I called you on Friday to ask your recommendation about where to go for dinner, the mussels were delicious. We will be back. You have yourselves regular guests. Best Regards Tanya and Tim.
Room was quite small as was the bathroom. Facilities were clean, but modest. Not a lot of room for luggage. Bed was comfortable and a good size (queen). It was a stock standard small motel room. Location was quite good, near town centre and esplanade.
We stayed 3nts with air-con from hell. It was leaking my daughter slipped when we arrived opening the front door. First day l rung out bath mat 5 times We checked in 2pm One very tiny bedroom right near the air-con with bunks it was impossible to sleep Full lite from the outside light. My grandson went home early after riding his dad as we both had no sleep. I Slept on the floor the last night in the corner not much better so loud and not dark. I must say l used ear plugs and they did not work to block the noise. My daughters bed in the alcove was quite and darker. Kitchen well set up. Pool was enjoyed but no BBQ not working. Lots of months to fix problems in lockdown. I mentioned on second day cleaning staff knew it was leaking and very noisy. So no we will never visit again. Room 7 …
My sister and I and our partners had an awesome long weekend in Port Arlington as our very first escape after so many months of lockdown in Melbourne. We caught the ferry from Docklands to Port Arlington where we were picked up and taken back to the motel by our amazing host Darren.On the way he pointed out dining options and handy shops The rooms were clean and comfortable and after settling in we took an easy walk into town for lunch at the pub.We came back to the motel to sit by the sparkling pool and passed some time talking to other guests and just enjoying the peace and sunshine. Dinner was booked at the golf club and Darren kindly offered to take us over there. As they have a courtesy bus at the club we made use of that to go to dinner and come home again.The next day we set off into town again and this time it was Phil’s turn to be obliging and helpful. He offered to drive us wherever we wanted to go and even made a time for the next morning to return us to the pier to catch the ferry home. The whole weekend was great and we’d highly recommend staying at The Portarlington Beach Motel for its comfort,location ,cleanliness and amazing staff.Take the ferry over to make your stay Just a bit more special.…
For our first time to Portarlington we couldn't have asked for a more accommodating stay. We stayed in the Luxury apartment which was perfect for our group. Phil was very welcoming and dropped our group multiple times to the town centre. We hope we can make this place a regular getaway.
We have just had a 2 night getaway at the Portarlington Beach Motel We were looked after and made feel welcome from the minute we stepped off the ferry. Motel is a close walk to restaurants and pub. Thank you to Darren, Phil and the team for making our weekend so enjoyable. We will be sure to come back.
Phil and his wife do an amazing job at running the motel. They are friendly, accommodating and generous people. The rooms were clean and spacious. I honestly could not recommend this place more! It’s close to the wineries and the motel runs a bus service for a very reasonable price.
We stayed a weekend in January. Pleasant and friendly check-in and the accommodation was nice and clean. The layout and decor is quite standard for most motels though this one is better than most. The room cost is above average for a motel though school holidays is peak time for travelling and we would likely stay again if we were to visit the area.
