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,

Stayed 2 nights in 2 bedrooms apartment on our recent Great Ocean roadtrip. Location is near to every amenities and attractions only if you drive.
Check in was easy and reception give me a complimentary small packet of fresh milk for coffee which was really a nice gesture.
Apartment do come with free wi-fi, coin slot laundry machine and food delivery(for those who are lazy to dine out or cook themselves).
Bedrooms were very clean and cosy and bed come with electric heater. Living room was spacious for our party of 5 to fellowship and play board games in the cold winter night.Bathroom have definitely been refurnished recently as it looks new.
Kitchen have everything we need to prepare for our meals.Only setback is the smoke alarm; every time the kitchen hood was turn on to ventilate the room while cooking the alarm would triggered, which was really annoying. Hence we would have to switch off the kitchen hood and open up the window and door while cooking.
Anyway, the stay was awesome and I would recommend this accommodation for it's cleanliness, price, easy check in and out, location and friendliness of staff.

Money well spent. The rooms are very neat and clean. Plenty of towels and bed spreads. Kitchen is nice and tidy.

The entire process of booking, check in, and check out is very friendly. The motel is right on the main road. So that is added bonus.

We recently stayed at the Blue Whale Motor Inn and Apartments. There were four adults and we booked a 2-bedroom apartment. This was very spacious and well set out. The kitchen included all of the necessary items of equipment, crockery and utensils. The furniture and beds were in good condition and very comfortable. The bathroom was beautifully decorated (clearly it had been refurbished recently), and the shower was amazing!! A very comfortable place to stay; everything was absolutely spotless, even the toaster. The only negative aspect was the parking. We had apartment number 3 and there was an extremely 'tight' angle park allocated to this apartment, next to the brick wall of the stairwell. Because the parking spaces are fairly narrow, the 'neighbour' had parked right on the edge of the bay and there was no way that our car could fit into the space that was left. Because the place was fully booked, there was nowhere else to park, so we had to leave the car parked on the road on a Saturday night.
