Southern Ocean Moter Inn Port Campbell Reviews
Prime Twelve Apostles Accomodation Nov 03, 2012
It's hard to be overly positive about our stay at Port Campbell's Southern Ocean Motor Inn but in saying that there were more positives than negatives.
We booked two rooms for one nights stay, one at $120 (Room 6) and another (Room 1, with views over the water) $130. It must be remembered that this was a public holiday weekend so prices may have been a little higher than usual.
I'll get the negatives out of the way now...
In Room 6 the water temperature for showering was lukewarm at best. It fluctuated between lukewarm and cold for minutes at a time and sadly, at no stage was it hot. An exception can be made here for Room 1 which had a good hot water service.
The double bed in Room 6 was actually two singles put together which became annoying at times but was comfy none the less.
Free WiFi was advertised but the service was non-existent throughout the night and early morning. As we were only staying one night we didn't bother to ask why.
Except for these issues it was a good place to stay and had many good points, including it's location which was only 10 minutes drive to the Twelve Apostles etc. It also overlooked Port Campbell Bay and was only 1 minutes walk to the CBD, the beach and a small jetty from which you could fish.
The staff were helpful and polite, offering great insight into surrounding attractions and recommended routes. The grounds were well presented and clean and there was ample car parking space.
The rooms had everything you would expect to see in a standard hotel room like free tea and coffee, a tv, phone service, breakfast ordering service etc. The decor was quite outdated but that wasn't really an issue to us.
Checkout was at 10am the next day and if you were leaving early before office hours you could leave your keys in a lock box kept outside the office entrance.
Overall, I'd say this was a good place to stay in Port Campbell and mostly because of it's prime location. Not a luxury stay by any means but if you're stopping in over night... perfect.
