We thought the location was quite good, walking distance to the sea and into the town. Reception friendly and helpful on arrival, gave us a map and marked out places to walk and places to eat. The room although a good size and clean was very dated and in bad need of modernisation, our room had a double and single... More

Room was MASSIVE! Spotless. Laundry facilities were brilliant and well priced too. Staff helpful and suggested places to see. The Lighthouse and the Gaul ruins are very picturesque. Good location to be able to get into town quickly by car or walking.

Awesome place to stay !!! Would highly recommend. Room was very clean and comfortable. Very quite and lovely surroundings. Lots of great information given about places to eat and things to look at. The guy at the front desk was very friendly and could not be more helpful. They even had electric blankets as when we visited it was cold.

My wife and I have stayed here before and that's why I returned with two mates. The Family Apartments are fantastic and very clean and roomy. Only a quick walk to both hotels and the cafes and shops. The owners are friendly and very welcoming. This is going to be my place to stay on all trips to Robe.

Average motel in good location. It served a purpose for a one night stay and was better priced than many other properties in the area. If you go in the off-season it can be a bit chilly as no carpet in main area.
