          Musty smell”

          We found the owner extremely friendly and helpful, but the room was smelling very much like mildew and musty. Easy to find coming into Torquay from Queenscliff, and a good choice of restaurants near by. The walking trail across from the Motel was incredible.

          Fantastic central location, right opposite the beach. All required facilities provided.”

          I made a last minute booking during summer school holidays, so, I had to pay much more than the usual standard motel rate to secure a room here. On top of the very high rate there was also a 1.4% credit card charge (2% for Amex). The location, however, is fantastic - central, close to shops, cafes and transport, and right opposite the beach. A microwave, kettle & toaster were provided, but not cutlery or crockery, though these were apparently available, for an extra charge. The air conditioner was old and noisy, though worked fine. The WiFi was poor, but that's common with accommodation. The room was spacious, with a clean, comfortable queen bed, plus sofa, table & chairs, wide-screen TV etc. The shower was good, but corners of the bathroom had obviously been bypassed by the cleaner for quite a while, and had gathered a collection of hair, dust and spiders, though the rest of unit was clean. Would defiantly stay again, if I could secure the room at a better rate next time.

          Location, breakfast and clean room

          We stayed as a stop over on our trip along the Great Ocean Road. Room was large enough and had fridge and microwave for any quick meals. The room was also clean and the bedding was comfortable. Breakfast was a little overdone, but was tasty and there was enough to tied us over until dinner time.

          Good typical budget motel. No frills but everything you expect. Only criticism was the air con which sounded like a cement truck dumping its load and just as loud. Had to switch it off to be able to sleep. However I expect it has a limited life left and will probably be replaced soon.

          walking distance to shops and Torquay beach.

          Although the weekend we stayed it rained heavily, the hotel was busy, but fairly quiet. We didn't get much of a welcome from reception when we checked in, we were just handed the keys. The room was sdequate. Bar fridge and coffee/tea making facilites, the toaster and microwave was a nice extra. A negative point would be the smoke alarm was missing from the ceiling and the facewasher was dirty which made me question the cleanliness of the towels. But price wise and location, good value for a weekend away.

          location close to beach and shops

          First impressions were quite disappointing, the room was small with the only view being of the wall dividing properties... The queen bed seemed to sink in the middle and our neighbouring guests on the second night of our stay were quite noisy - both factors ruining a good night's sleep. The cost of this place per night is definitely based on the location rather than the quality of the room.
