We spent 2 nights here. It is central to everything. The room was clean. However it would be the smallest room I have ever stayed or seen. It had a king bed which we wanted but that was pretty much it. It was tight all round. The shower was big but the ensuite again small. A little to squishy for... More

Dear MsTique66, Thank you for your feedback. I trust that you spent much of your time enjoying what our central location has to offer interrupted only by what sounds like a comfortable sleep and great shower. For future reference, I highlight that we offer the choice of traditional motel rooms, studio apartment with king bed, one and two bedroom apartments... More

Bed comfortable, breakfast ... massive! We had a bowl of fruit each, which was a meal in itself - and then a cooked breakfast which was equally massive. Full marks to David and Robyn who arranged to deliver the fruit early, while the cooked meal was being prepared, so it wouldn't be cold by the time we got to it.... More

Starting from the receptionist this place is very cozy. She gave us a bottle of fresh milk to be used with tea in the room. Our room is actually an apartment and we find it very comfortable and clean, exceptionally clean. Unfortunately we will just stop here for a night so the relax lasts a few hours. We advise this...

We had a night here on our trip along Great Ocean Road. The owners were very friendly, the bed was super comfy and they stock locally brewed beer, Prickly Moses, in the mini bar that was very tasty. The room was quiet and it's just around the corner from the main street.

Dear Prairie P, We really appreciate your feedback. Since taking over the property in February, we have been progressively updating the beds. We have also replaced the stock in the mini bar of each room to include local beers, ciders and boutique vineyard Victorian wines. I am so glad you enjoyed them! kindest regards Robyn (Owner / Operator) More

I was lucky to spend the night in one bedroom apartment with a magnificent King Bed. It was so good, I had to ask if I was the first person to sleep in it! (I wasn't by the way). David and Robyn provided a smile and good recommendations too. Thanks!

Room was well set up and clean. Close to Maritime exhibit - worth a visit. Food was good and service was great. Staff were efficient, friendly with a good sense of humour. We were part of a group of 40 and the hotel coped admirably.
