Booked three double rooms, side by side, for three couples on a weekend in June 2017. The manager was very flexible regarding check in times and splitting accounts. We checked in at 3:30 pm whereas the remaining group of four arrived at 10:30 pm. In the afternoon Graham the friendly owner was at the reception to receive us whereas in the evening the son was there to hand over the keys to the four guests. The rooms were large, L -shaped - a Queen sized bed plus a single bed . Each room had a good sized bathroom with shower. Everything was spick and spack clean. Room kitchenette included a fridge with milk, a toaster, electric kettle and a microwave oven and utensils and cutlery for three. Rooms had split type reverse cycle airconditioners. The a/c in my room was new and we had difficulty operating it. But Graham guided us through twice - once in the evening on a Friday night when they were out.
There were two large shopping centres on two sides of the motel. The sight seeing places like the (a) Blue Whale watching platform, (b) Light and sound show were very nearby . The other viewing spot we visited was the Bay of Islands about a 45 minutes drive and the Cheese Factory along the way is worth visiting.
Beside the usual food franchises at the shopping centre, there is a Fish and Chips shop - East Warrnabool Fish And Chips at Nicholson Street close by. There are other eateries - take aways and cafes on the same street and beyond,
