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. They are friendly, welcoming and helpful and the rooms, while certainly not flash, are comfortable and clean and (in...

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...

As far as motels go, this one was pretty poor. Room was reasonably clean except for the dirt in out of sight areas. The owners are lovely and accomodating, but the rooms and the location is undesirable I'm afraid. It's a room and then you have some garden furniture outside overlooking the car park. The walls are paper thin so...

We arrived there at 6:45pm for check in, David greeted us at the reception providing us a detailed map of Robe with descriptions regardless we were 15 minutes before the closing time of the reception. The room was clean and perfect, just that the water tab inside toilet could not be turned off so we contacted David straight away. David...

Stayed here for one night with my wife and baby. I called ahead on the day and upon mentioning we had a baby the owners insisted on upgrading us to the family room for no extra charge which was much appreciated. The room was very large, clean and comfortable. There was a nice looking pool but it was not pool...

Came don here on business for a couple of days and found the motel to be very quiet and comfortable. David made sure that I knew all of the local attractions and places to see - even though it was a business trip.

Dave was an excellent host, he welcomed us and provided all the information we needed. The room was spotlessly clean and equipped to exactly the standard we expected. The motel is very well located in Robe. Thank you Dave, you made a difference!

Good value motel in the heart of town yet quiet. Owner David very friendly and helpful. We had room 14 - a double, which was clean, comfortable and looked like it had been recently updated. Couldn't ask for more.

The location is good. The reception was impressive. The room was spotlessly clean, the queen bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was fully functional and efficient. The room itself was small and basic. Overall not good value.

This Motel made a good impression on us. Basic but clean and spacious, lovely rose trees outside and each room had a table and chairs outside. Lovely welcome from the owners. They're happy to give directions and recommendations. Plenty of hot water, parking and right on the main street.
