This is a beautiful place to stay. The room was Devine. Bed was very comfy. Even though it was a street back from the ocean we still had an ocean view from the 1st floor. Breakfast was really yum. Eggs and bacon cooked to perfection. The lady on reception, I think was Anna was very helpful with things to do around the area which we took full advantage of. Would I stay there again. ABSOLUTELY

Hope to be back

Pros: Location, hosts, breakfast.
Cons: Can't think of anything.
Location: Was only an overnight stay in preparation for a day in the Otways. Hosts very helpful and knowledgeable in planning the day.
Great hosts, exceptional cleanliness, everything worked and was only a short stroll to shops/cafes, beach and visitor centre.

A lovely and charming motel located within walking distance to the beach, dining and shops. The owners were very friendly and welcoming. The room was clean, with nice decor and a very comfortable bed. The bath tub in the middle of the room was an unique experience. Breakfast was included and the food was great, especially the bacon and eggs. Overall, highly recommended!

Excellent accommodation

Everything was perfect. We were welcomed even though we arrived a little early. Our room was very well appointed and CLEAN. The surroundings were quiet and we appreciated the privacy. Breakfast was excellent including a hot meal. We would happily stay there again and would highly recommend it to any traveller.
