We found our motel room to have everything we needed including a sofa. Our room was clean and tidy and the owners were very friendly and very helpful with lots of suggestions for places to have a meal around town. Even though the motel is on the main drag, it was very quiet and relaxing.

It's hard to get an excellent rating from me but the proactive service of this hotel lady certainly did it. Realising I liked my car she immediately made sure I was put into a room with my car right outside. Place is clean, tidy and well equipped for the price. I'd stay again.

Motel just on the edge of the main shopping strip. Rooms away from the street. Close to shops and attractions. Friendly staff. Available power for an electric car. Pricing reasonable. Can recommend for short or long stay if not requiring indoor cooking facilities.BBQ available. Has pool and spa.

Robe is a quaint seaside town on South Australia's "Limestone Coast". Although small (compact) it has good restaurants and great beaches facing North (Southern Hemisphere) to pick up daylong sunshine - and The Guichen Bay Motel is perfectly placed to make the most of what Robe has to offer. In addition it is great value, clean and with friendly staff...

The motel is just okay. Nothing to praise, definitely not a great place. The unacceptable part of the experience was unkind staff. At least the staff I spoke to (three people) were impatient and simply very rude. Far from friendly or helpful. This is one quality I find hard to accept. I do not know who the owners are, but...

David F, Manager at Guichen Bay Motel, responded to this review

We believe this review is a spiteful response from a person who did not even stay at our motel but tried to park on premises whilst seeking shade to do some texting. When challenged by staff and asked to leave because she was restricting access for our clients she said she would be only 5 minutes. After another 10 minutes...

I'm a bit down on Australian motels and have stopped reviewing but Dave and Ant are the best hosts I've ever come across in a motel so I have come of review retirement to make an exception for the Guichen Bay.

I am a harsh marker but this is a pretty fair review. The rooms were small and not worth the $120 per night we paid to stay there. It was a 3 night minimum which should be illegal as far as I am concerned, it is an awful rule, just because it is holiday time. Otherwise the outside BBQ area...
