Very friendly owners. Large bed that was super comfy with good quality linens. WIfI worked with no problems. This was an older style motel that has benefitted from some upgrades. Very spacious clean room with microwave and fridge. We did have a couple of minor issues that were dealt with immediately and in a very friendly manner. BBQ area was...

Walking distance about 20 metres to eateries, cafes and shops and weekend market. Opposite the motel is the beach...

This motel is a little gem. We stayed for just one night while travelling the Great Ocean Road. The manager was very friendly and helpful and went the extra mile when we locked ourselves out of our room after hours. The rooms are large clean and spacious with a new kitchen and bathroom. The bed was super comfy and all...

I was a little worried when I booked this motel from the internet but was pleasantly surprised. Very clean, comfortable bed and roomy. We stayed two nights in January with the bay being very busy. Our room at the back of the motel was very quiet and we slept well. We were able to do a load of washing and...

We stayed at Coastal Motel at the start of our road trip down the Great Ocean Road. In spite of us arriving after the reception has closed, the staff made the necessary arrangements to ensure that we received our keys and that we could settle in seamlessly. Parking is free, so we simply pulled into the nearest open lot to...

We booked 2 rooms, 1 twin and 1 family room. Both rooms were newly renovated. Fresh and clean and very comfortable. I was amazed and happy to find a rice cooker in the kitchen! We could park our car directly outside our rooms so loading and unloading was easy. The motel is close to eateries and a supermarket but they...

Good start, check-in was a breeze. Lady on reception was very welcoming and friendly. Room was spacious, clean and as per the pictures on the website. It's just a shame that the pictures don't have 'smell-a-vision' as the bathroom really did smell bad. Other than the smell, we were having a good stay until asked if we could leave a...
