Friendly helpful staff, quiet and comfortable room with small terrace close to town centre and a short drive to the attractions of the western end of the Great Ocean Road. Small number of food options in town so don't expect much but it's s lovely spot. Recommended.

Great welcome when we arrived, lovely spacious apartment with good facilities. The apartment was clean and perfect for a family of 4. We had a good night's sleep and were all set to continue our tour of The Great Ocean Road.

Comfortable, clean motel on main road. Road noise is not an issue. Room was fairly big, with a kitchenette, small love seat and a table with two chairs. We had Rm 1, which had a secluded little patio to sit on. Internet in the end room we had was slow and intermittent- maybe better in other rooms. A 5 min walk takes you to the main drag in town - it is very small, but there are 4-5 restaurants (Waves is overrated in guide books - mediocre food - try one of the others). All in all a very nice stay on the GOR circuit.

Our family of 4 stayed in one of the family rooms recently and it was unexpectedly spacious and really well-appointed. The front desk was very helpful with local information and suggestions for places to eat. We found Port Campbell to be a really charming place to visit and, of course, very well located for the 12 Apostles and the extraordinary coastline.
