Stayed here for one night on a business trip. The location is good in the Main Street with plenty of cafes, restaurants and shops nearby. Accommodation is budget and decor and fittings are dated, however in its favor it is cheap, clean, has comfortable beds and hot showers

We booked a travel package to stay here. We were looking forward to visiting Portland for the first time. On arrival we checked in and were given the keys and no other explanation was given other than the town map. Asked about wifi and were told it was $10 per night. Declined paying $40 for wifi for four nights. We... More

This was a business trip and was difficult getting accommodation at reasonable prices due to school holidays. However I must say the William Dutton is certainly handy to the city of Portland, small as it is. Was only an overnight stay and last minute booking.

In a good spot as we were dining at the Royal Oak hotel - the room was clean but basic, switches in a strange place, the bathroom very dark and needs at least a night light as if you get up through the night you wake everyone up switching on the light/fan which is extremely noisy. We were warned not... More

We booked rooms here at the last minute as many hotels/b and b's on the Gt Ocean Rd were fully booked. After reading some of the reviews we were a bit wary but were very pleasantly surprised. Our rooms were clean and well equipped. Yes I did set the fire alarm off with the toaster but that was no great... More

The motel accommodation was adequate but very much in need of updating especially the bathroom. Our room was very noisy and when asked if we could change we were knocked back because of possible influx of basketballers coming. We were very doubtful if many stayed there actually??? The situation was excellent apart from the noise as it was walking distance... More

Even though it was cancelled within the time limit that no fees applied, they have still kept $25.00 plus. Approximately 6 telephone calls were made to get a... More

Stayed for one night in a two bedroom "apartment" for $189! As there were 3 of us, there was plenty of room. Room was for 4 people but because of the sofa bed it could sleep 5-6 people. Table was dusty and badly 'cleaned', tv and surfaces were also dusty. Dead moth in the bathroom. Bed was hard but pillows... More

This motel is pretty basic but it is clean and the beds comfortable even has electric blankets. The shower room is very small and the room generally a bit dark. Minor problems include the fire alarm going off when the toaster is used. OK for an overnight stay.
