Absolutely overpriced. The room was dated and somewhat grubby looking - the carpets and couch were stained and dirty looking and the dining chair cushions had tears. On arrival, we had to call a mobile number to find out what room we were in as there was no staff onsite. There was one wall-mounted soap dispenser for hand soap and for shampoo. We paid $272 per night and expected more for that price.

Definitely recommend Portside Motel. Only 10 minute walk to cafes, restaurants, bars, beach. The beach is gorgeous. Theres snorkling, life savers and sheltered from wind. One of my favourites was that the beds where so comfortable, quiet clean spacious rooms. Great TV reception and the receptionist was so helpful and such a beautiful lady. Close to 12 Apostles, Loch Ard gorge, 12 Apostles gourmet trail, Petersborough. Already booked in for nxt year 😊

The decor was different and garden was pretty. Good towels. The shower was curtained and did not have a cubical which meant water all over the floor. Bathroom amenities were in bulk and not attractive.
