Aussies stay at Admella Motel Portland

Review of Admella Motel
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 1 May 2018
We stayed in Portland for a night at the Admella Motel Portland. It was old but clean and plenty of parking, friendly welcome and helpful tips for the local area - thanks. Close to all shops, walk one block to bay and over look the pier. Surprisingly quite for as close to main area of town. Only disappointed with bad shower head and squeeze soap holders that are not easy to use unless you have plenty of muscles to squeeze some soap out.

It was an unscheduled stop on our road trip from the Barossa to Melbourne. The motel was conveniently located, clean and tidy. It was priced well to similar properties and we were welcomed at checkin despite not having a booking.

We really enjoyed our 3 nights here. Our hosts were helpful, the rooms are very clean and comfortable. And we slept really well as it is quiet (we were in room 10). Incredibly good value with fridge and microwave and cutlery and crockery. The only downside is the slow unreliable wifi hence 4 not 5 rating.

This motel is owned and operated by a nice husband and wife team. The motel is a 2 minute walk to the water and 5 minutes to the main shops. The motel is very very original but very clean and tidy. Room was spotless all bar the shower floor that look terrible. No cakes of soap are supplied, just a liquid that is for shampoo and body wash?
No vanity or mirror in the bathroom.

Room tip: All rooms are the same and quiet

Thankyou for your review, we appreciate your feedback. The shower tiles maybe old but are all clean, and we do have that on the list to update. We have not supplied bars of soaps now for years.......we find they are a waste of money and soap. Liquid soaps and body wash/shampoo are the most economical way to go, and are used everywhere. No mirror in the shower and toilet room, but large mirror over the handbasin bench area. We feel this is sufficient for the guests.

Stayed here overnight, we arrived late afternoon to be met by the care taker. She was bright and bubbly. Asking about the local area she was able to give answers to all of our questions even provides us with a map to the eats around portland. Give this motel a go cheap and tidy, this has been well looked after for its age

I reserved a room in the motel and unfortunately due to *my mistake* I had booked on the wrong night and when I arrived the hotel was already full. The owner went out of her way to
1. Organise another motel for me
2. Drove me there
3. Refunded my booking.

How good is that? Fantastic service... thanks guys.
