4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 May 2020
It was away from buzz therefore its pretty quiet. Room 1 was huge and clean. We had peaceful sleep the night we stayed there. It was a bit dim in the room but still ok. Staff was friendly. We will stay again.

The location was quiet despite being just off the main highway. The room was very spacious, clean & well equipped. The beds were comfortable, good quality linen & toiletries provided. Definitely value for money. The hosts were friendly & helpful. Will stay again anytime.

The Whalers Rest is on the main highway into Portland so is easy to find and only 5 min drive to town centre where there are a variety of dining options. The rooms are very clean and comfortable beds. The rooms are set well back from road and there is no traffic noise. Great overnight stop at a budget price. Recommend.

Reasonably priced, excellent bed, wonderful block-out curtains and decent shower pressure, what more could you want?! It was blowing a gale outside and we were snug and warm in our cozy brick room. :-D

Spacious room, with queen bed, 2 seater lounge & table & chairs. Located 5 mins out of Portland on highway but was not noisy. Fantastic shower pressure. Great wifi. The manager was friendly. Bed was really comfortable. Lounge needs updating. Breakfast is basic but satisfactory.

The owner is friendly and helpful. The room was spacious with 2 queen beds which we had a great sleep on. Good internet and tv with foxtel. The shower was hot instantly. Being near highway it was not noisy. The reverse cycle aircon abit noisy but once warm turned off when going to bed and was warm. Beds had electric blankets but we didn't need them. Great value for a lovely clean room. Also got free continental breakfast for 2.

Room tip: The room we had was up the back. But l think even near front the highway not a problem. I cant sleep with noise and l slept like a baby
