Lovely review guys. Robe can be windy at times and we all live with rainy days. However Robe has plenty of places with log fires, good food, fine wine and good people to look after you. And if you do not wish to move from the motel we can offer you all that right here at the Guichen Bay Motel.

We arrived at the motel as a last minute booking, early evening and feeling very tired. The room was more than we expected with a king bed in a standard room. It appeared that there had been recent renovations, the bathroom was immaculate and we were pleased to have a luggage rack, microwave, fridge and toaster. Overall, we were most...

What can I say you have just written a great advertisement for the motel. I too think we punch above our weight and continue to be the best value in town. Welcome back anytime.

Beautifully clean. The owner was so helpful and friendly. Comfy beds. Had everything we needed - TV, microwave, heater, kitchen equipent. Warm and cosy in the winter. And so clean - gleaming bathroom - everything. I will return.

The weather was bleak so the warm welcome we received at the Guichen Bay motel went over very well. The proprietor also gave us a rundown on all the restaurants and places of interest in the town so we were well prepared for our brief stay. He also asked about our breakfast plans. We mentioned that we were self catering...

Really impressed with this place. Dave the manager was very welcoming and made sure we had everything we needed - even chilled wine glasses in the fridge! Very good knowledge about where to go for dinner. At his suggestion went to the Robe Hotel and had a great dinner. Room was warm and tidy. Staying also gave us vouchers for...

Great twin share - travelling with a friend. Walkable to lots of cafes, pubs and supermarket. David (owner) was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. Adventurous spoon next door was really nice for breakfast.

If you have to stay in Robe, this was a pretty good spot. It was close to the shops/main rd and the beach. I only stayed here because it was Christmas and I was driving along the Great Ocean Rd.

A little confused about your comment on Christmas when you reviewed in July however the best thing is you had a great stay. Thank you for recommending our motel and I am sure when you return we can change your mind on that "real tourist destination" thing. Fifteen thousand people in January can't be wrong!
