“Great location in a world class scenic area”
Reviewed 2 June 2016

Josie and John McInerney are excellent hosts, they know the area and gave us great tips on what and where to go to maximize our time. The physical property is typical for the area, but the unit is up to date and super clean. The kitchen facilities were a welcome treat after eating on the road for several weeks.

Room Tip: Most rooms are along side a road but we did not notice any road noise. Fairly quiet for the locatio...

A very comfortable bed and room with all the usual motel needs. Josie met us with a genuine welcome. Showed us our accommodation and explained facilities. She is the perfect hostess. A handy spot for touring this fantastic part of Australia.

Staff were friendly. We arrived at 1.50pm for a 2pm check in but there was a note saying it's only available at 2.30pm. No problem, as we hadn't had lunch so we popped over to 12 Rock beach bar nearby for a quick lunch before coming back to check in, which was quick.

We stayed in a Deluxe family room. It was exactly as the pictures on the website showed. Clean and spacious. One of the armchair was slightly loose.

Good facilities in the room. Just thought $200 for a night in a studio is slightly pricely.

The motel is very easy to find. Within walking distance to eatery and the Port Campell foreshore.

Very good kitchenette facilities, good sized room, queen bed, very clean motel. Reception provided good advice on dining options, sightseeing etc. I don't actually know.... but I think this is an owner operator motel and it shows in the attention to detail. I would stay there again

Stayed here after completing the Great Ocean Walk. Friendly welcome by staff, room was great, big and comfy enough. Offered a washing service which was needed after 8 days of trekking. Clothes came back quick smelling fantastic. Only 2 min walk to town. Recommend to all.
