Very well located place with walking distance and nice view of the beach. It is close to shop and restaurants. The rooms were very clean and the staff was very helpful and helped in late check in on very short notice

We booked an Ocean view premier suite and it was definitely worth the little extra cost. The room was very large, had a small kitchenette with plenty of crockery and cutlery. Our one complaint was that their cleaner needs to dust all surfaces and not just the ones that are regularly seen. The manager was exceptionally helpful and offered to...

Low standard room. We got one over the reception on the 2nd floor. Naturally, no elevator. We are in our early 70ties, but nobody offered help with luggage. We had to drag our heavy bags (5 week trip) ourselves. There was no stuff to ask for help. Room quite small, low standard. Overall, low value.

Our room overlooked and was only a few yards from the beach at Port Campbell, and was within yards of all the town facilities. The room was well equipped and had everything one needed for a short stay. The wifi was excellent.

Port Campbell is the perfect location for seeing the major sites on the Great Ocean Road, with the Twelve Apostles 15 minutes in one direction and the Bay of Islands 15 minutes in the other. These sites can get overrun with trippers, but staying in Port Campbell allows an early morning visit, when you can have them almost all to...

Stayed one night as part of GOR tour. The sound of the ocean from our room was lovely. But, the accommodations lacked that "personal" touch that we have come to expect. Nothing special. Just a place to lay our heads for the night. Short on bath towels, only one wash cloth. Overpriced for amenities offered.

Thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay in the rooms at the front overlooking the water. Such a quiet peaceful spot to relax, chill and while away some time after a day driving GOR. Everything you need is close by.

We stayed here for one night at the end of our trip and we absolutely loved it! Port Campbell is such a lovely peaceful place and Loch Ard motel was in the best location for local restaurants and bars to stroll to. The room was a really good size and we had a wonderful view of the bay. Would definitely...

Great place to stay. We stayed three nights and if we didnot have to catch a flight to Brisbane would have stayed longer. The staff were excellent and very helpful and could not do enough for you. Would stay here again and have recommended Loch Ard Motor Inn to our friends. Great location and great views.
