We stayed in a Family Room which was a good size, facing the road. Quite noisy until later in the evening when traffic settled down. We had a good sleep.
Shower was enclosed by a curtain only, so water went everywhere ALL OVER the floor - what a mess after 4 showers. They provided 2 bathmats but both ended up soaked and the bathroom then was too slippery to use.
Still had a VCR ! For $270 a night I did expect something a whole lot better.
Parking was right out the front of the unit which was handy.
There seemed to be better located motels on the main drag and I tend to think if Port Campbell is charging that much (more than we paid in Melbourne!) then you're better off in town.
Weren't told anything about their breakfast options, but when checking out (had to leave the key- nobody around at 10am) saw they offered a continental breakfast for a charge. With no knowledge of this, unfortunately we pfaffed around trying to feed the family quickly in town before hitting the road. It's these little details that make a huge difference to travellers.
