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...

Rooms are very small, furniture very simple and tasteless, bathroom small and very simple so is the sink, iternet is slow and not stable, the bed is horrible and worn out. It is no place to feel well. And much overprices for what you get.

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. 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...
