Lovely motel with some 60's Retro theme in the Office. Greeted by Di who was very helpful from our initial phone contact to arriving at the Motel. She did a fantastic job of looking after guests while the owners were away for a few days. Value for money.
Rooms were very clean and serviced daily. Bed very comfortable. Lovely well kept surroundings with a Camp Kitchen which had all the facilities you required. Even lounges to relax in while watching TV. We stayed 2 nights at the beginning of our journey and 4 nights on our return journey. Even though there they were booking out quickly Di made it possible for us to have the 4 nights. We met the Owners on our return journey. They were lovely friendly people.
Would highly recommend this Motel and will definitely stay again.

This would be our third stay. We will return! Lucky to get a superior queen.
The bed is comfortable, have such a dream sleep. Shower’s pressure is fantastic and I do love the colours. Love the new look verandah and gate.
Fabulous hosts, very helpful and friendly.
Curtains need to be fixed, the runners are stiff and could not close the curtains.

Booked at last minute, owners were lovely and room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Plenty of tea/coffee/biscuits etc and free netflix too! Even had a wee fenced porch at front, I assume for toddlers because it was a family room. Parking was directly outside the room.

We have been staying with 6 to 8 friends at this motel every year we come to the annual Show & Shine car show, it never disappoints with its clean well equipped rooms with all necessary items supplied. The well equipped out door lounge kitchen area, equipped with TV, fridge, barbecue and plenty of seating is a welcome facility for all visitors. The very friendly owner operators, are very knowledgeable about all the local attractions.
If you are looking for a quality budget motel in Portland, we can fully recommend the Retro you won’t be disappointed.

We arrived on a cold Friday afternoon, we were greeted at reception by Peter and after check in directed to our unit. We cannot speak highly enough of the clean amenities that awaited us. It was obvious from the moment we entered the care and love Tina and Peter and staff have for Retro Motel experience.

An inviting Queen bed with white crisp linen set the tone throughout where the bathroom was well presented in retro style. We highly recommend a stay and look forward to our next visit. Warren H

Clean & tidy room, mattress was so comfortable. Shower was so good. Kitchen area for making your own breakfast. Not far from the main streets. Pom was so easy to deal with. This was our second time and we will definitely return.
