    « Planned for one night, stayed for two »

    We are on holiday from Canada and stayed a night at the Olde Maritime Inn. We really appreciated the warm welcome extended by Raj and his staff. We enjoyed it enough to return for a second night after spending the day exploring the area. The rooms were spacious and clean and beds were comfortable and the breakfasts were amazing. Well located for exploring the beach, community and area.

    « Unclean, tired and mediocre.... »

    Sitting here in the motel room right now i can honestly say it is tired, unclean and needs maintenance. Toilet constantly leaking, kept you awake all night evwn when door closed. There was a review a few months back about same, but clearly not repaired and dont consider maintenance to in prove. Air conditioner blows dirt over the single bed below it (lucky not sleeping there). Cleaning crew just remake bed and empty bin but dont wipe over benches, vacuum floors nor refresh used towels or face washers. Windows covered in spiders and cob webs (inside), and they vacuum around furniture not move it. Dust in room very bad so consider elsewhere to stay if u suffer alleges or asthma or like me sneezing non stop.

    « Definitely worth a stay »

    We stayed at The Olde Maritime Motor Inn for one night on 17th Nov 16, during our trip along the Great Ocean Road from Warrnambool. It is a very friendly, comfortable motel, and in an excellent location not far from the beach. Our room was clean and comfortable, with plenty of space. The bathroom had a separate bath and shower which was excellent. We ate in the motel's own Clovelly Restaurant which was a good decision, as it was good food and at reasonable prices. The hotel staff were very helpful and friendly, including the restaurant waitress who was first class. Overall, a perfect place to stop overnight whether on business or, like us, on holiday. We would love to visit again one day the next time we come over from England.

    « Great location, friendly staff »

    We stayed 2 nights to have a look around the local area and out to Port Fairy. We chose the cheapest room available and it was well equipped. The bathroom needs an upgrade and was tiny but it was the cheap room! We really enjoyed Happy Hour and the dinner was fabulous. The HH did not extend to the next night unfortunately but "them's the breaks". Breakfasts in the restaurant were also excellent. Walk across the road to parkland on the ocean, the Info Centre and historic harbor village. Enjoyed the stay.

    « Good stop after long trip »

    After driving from Adelaide, this stop was a welcome one, made even more so by very pleasant Reception staff and a very comfortable room. We had dinner in the Dining Room where once again, the Staff were excellent, very attentive and the place offered a very good dinner Menu. There was a bit of a mix up on check out where another guest's charges were put on my account but, it was resolved very quickly with no fuss. Would certainly visit again. Thank you.

    « Great place to stay »

    This is a little gem in a great location. The owner was kind enough to pick me up from the train station on a cold and rainy night and upgraded my stay. The room I stayed in was newly refurbished and was quite spacious. There's a modern gym and its pretty close to everything.The staff were very helpful and friendly. On checking out, I reserved a room for my next trip. No complaints!

    « Friendly & genuine hospitality »

    My wife & I with our 2 young kids stayed for 2 nights & really appreciated Raj & Bronwyn & their staff's very friendly & accommodating attitude. There were many ways in which we were made to feel welcome & I was struck by the upbeat & can do attitude of all concerned. The apartment we had was comfortable, the restaurant food good & the hospitality & real interest in us having an enjoyable stay was fantastic. Good on you & thank you!

    « Cosy Rooms »

    Stayed here overnight as part of a road trip. Found the hotel to be well maintained and clean. Could hear the toilet flushing in the room above us but other than that the room was quiet. Bed was comfy and clean and the free wifi came in handy! I found the shower extremely small and a few times I elbowed the door open by mistake. Easy 2 minute walk to the maritime museum which was certainly a great spot to visit.

    « Mr Denis Farney »

    My wife and I stayed at The Olde Maritime Motor Inn Warrnambool on the 24/25 Oct It was an exceptional stay, the owner Raj made us welcome and truly looked after us to make sure it was an experience to remember. The staff were all so friendly an attentive, nothing was any trouble. The Clovelly Restaurant was first class with such an extensive menu and friendly staff. Pre dinner drinks at the bar with Raj prepared us for the dining experience to remember. I highly recommend this Motel for its first class accomodation and excellent Restaurant. Will definitely be back in the near future as it is the perfect location to explore the southwest coast and surrounds. So it's thumbs up to Raj and his staff for a wonderful stay. (Keep up the excellent work Raj) Denis&Trish Farney Ballarat Vic.

    « Great Stay.. Great Service. »

    Myself and my partner along with our toddler just spent 3 nights in the spa deluxe villa. We just phoned up the night before and booked the room. The room was great value for money very spacious and accomodating. The staff were friendly and helped out anyway they could to make our stay enjoyable. We dined at the restaurant for 2 nights and breakfast each morning the meals could not be faulted even our toddler thoroughly enjoyed the meals. Compliments to the chef. Special thanks to the manager Raj for always making us welcome and Bec in the restaurant for helping out where ever she could. Well worth the stay we will be back.

    « Escape to Warrnambool »

    I have just spent three nights in Warrnambool. The accommodation was very comfortable and quiet - very handy to Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village and within walking distance of the RSL, and city shops. The meals served in the restaurant were of a high standard. The staff were very friendly and helpful, going out of their way to see you comfortable.

    we booked this motel for 2 nights from Trip Advisor reviews and weren't disappointed. The room was reasonably sized and clean and quiet. Without doubt was the highlight was the friendly staff at the desk and in the restaurant. Meal and wine was lovely. Motel was conveniently placed as well. Would go back again

    « Great over night stay »

    We stayed here over night with two other couples on a road trip . Cheryl was friendly and helpful when we checked in to our room . We had drinks in the delightful cozy bar before going out . Emma who served us went out of her way to make us feel welcome and gave great bar service . She made me a perfect Margarita and served Peroni beer in genuine glasses . ( always tastes better ) Room was comfortable and very clean . Nice position and would highly reccomend .

    « Wonderful hotel, fantastic service. »

    When we arrived our booking was missing, no problem to the owner Raj Patel who quickly sorted our accomodation and upgraded us due to our anniversary. All the pros are as follows, hotel position great, food excellent, staff go out of their way to assist us, rooms are large and the beds suited us very well.Now the cons - None, how is that for a hotel! Personal message to Raj, his wife and staff Many thanks for making the start of our trip on the great ocean road a good one. From your Welsh visitors on 10th Oct

    « Too expensive for what you get »

    $130 for the basic room without breakfast is too much. The room is stock standards boring with a small TV too far from the bed to enjoy. The water is nice and hot, everything works, the bed is comfortable, make it $30 cheaper and it's still plain and boring but affordable.

    « A great hotel... »

    Stayed here in our trip along the Great Ocean Road. Really friendly and helpful staff who made us feel really welcome, clean large rooms, good food and good value. Yes, bathrooms was a bit dated but it was very clean with a nice separate shower and jacuzzi bath. Can't fault it for the money...

    « Spring family getaway in Warrnambool »

    Our family stayed for three nights at the Maritime Best Western at the end of the school holidays..Our sons 13 and 15 keen bike riders took advantage of close proximity to Thunder Point down hill track and loved our motels position to enjoy the beach and shops. Raj kept our bikes in the garage and locked up for safety, nothing was too much trouble. We stayed in a refurbished family room, large bathroom,, great ease of parking ,, coffee machine which I loved as a run to the breakwater each morning to see fine thoroughbreds being exercised and watch the sun rise. The team at Maritime were all professionals and we will be back soon to stay and enjoy Warrnambools many attributes. Julie Dart and Family

    « Refreshed and recharged! »

    This refurbished hotel has clearly been much revitalised by renovations and a new owner (Raj). He is an effusive host who infuses much positive energy and professionalism into his staff; one feels an honoured guest! My newly renovated room was elegant and gracious. The meals in the Clovelly Restaurant have also been enhanced (from when I ate there a couple of years ago).

    5
    « Family holiday »

    I could not recommend this hotel enough. We are staying here for three nights. From the minute I walked in with my three year old I felt looked after. The tour was booked. The room was immaculate. The effort on the clean the next day was perfect. I felt like they go the extra mile to take care of their guests and make sure you enjoy your stay.

    « Great place to stay »

    The staff were fantastic. Very welcoming and friendly. Raj, the manager, was extremely helpful in giving directions to our next destination. Our room was very comfortable and well maintained. The location of the motel was very convenient to Flagstaff Museum-just across the road. It's a short walk to shops and restaurants. We had dinner and breakfast at Clovelly restaurant in the motel. The food was delicious and again the staff were fabulous. A family member recommended that we stay at this motel and we were glad we took that recommendation.

    « Great staff and location »

    Could not fault anything in this hotel( despite building work going on)which did not affect us at all. We arrived on a Sunday night with our American friends and needed 3 rooms. The receptionist was friendly/ fun and efficient and gave us a great rate. Rooms were clean,very comfortable and had everything we needed ( our friends most impressed) We decided to have dinner at the restaurant and again a pleasant surprise. Good food,great menu and staff.

    « Comfortable and well located »

    This motel provides all essentials in a pleasant comfortable room, with welcoming and helpful staff who were happy to swap my doona for a blanket which was done before I arrived. We enjoyed our 2 evening meals in the restaurant with tasty and nicely prepared and served dishes, with pleasant background music which didn't interfere with normal conversation. It's also very well located near the city centre, as well as the whale-watching area near the Hopkins River mouth, the bay, Hopkins Falls (like a cauldron after heavy rain!) and other lovely ocean spots within an hour's drive.

    « Great location »

    This is the second or third time we've stayed here, and would definitely be back. The room clean, beds comfortable and there was easily enough room for the three of us. We chose a bed and breakfast package, and certainly couldn't fault the service. The staff member on duty at checkout was great with our daughter, even asking if she would like to complete the checkout herself - to which she laughed and said she was too little. Will be back for sure.

    « Better than expected »

    To be honest I wasn't expecting too much from the hotel but they over-delivered on everything. Being unfamiliar with Warrnambool it took us a while to find the hotel but everything was on the up after that, had driven from Apollo Bay that day whilst taking in the Twelve Apostles and Great Ocean Road so was pretty tired when we rolled into the car park. Reception was efficient and were expecting us, we had booked a refurbished / spa room. This is on the second floor of the hotel at the rear of the car park so nice and quiet and not too far from the free laundry which we needed to use. No lift so had to lug all our luggage up the stairs - not a huge problem as I needed the exercise. Room was HUGE and clean and tidy. Stayed for dinner as the menu looked interesting, restaurant was not overly busy for a Saturday evening and the staff were great. Breakfast was also good value. Good value, good bar and good food. Would consider staying again if we ever travel to the GOR again.

    « Excellent room »

    This is the second time my husband and i have stayed here. We had a newly updated hertiage room and it was huge. The bed was so comfortable and two people could fit into the shower. We will be back here again

    We stumbled upon this place while driving around searching for a place to stay and are we ever glad to have found it! Staff are amazingly helpful and friendly. Room was large and very, very comfortable. Bed was great. We opted for dinner and breakfast on site and again were pleased with our decision. The food is excellent! We'd happily stay again if ever in the area. The place is nice but really it's the staff that makes everything extra special.

    « Great place to stay! »

    Absolutely loved staying here. Excellent restaurant and staff. Very cosy rooms. Would happily stay again if we return to Warnambool. We were going to try eating out, but after the awesome dinner we had on the 1st night there we had to go back the 2nd night for more!

    « Warm and Elegant »

    We stayed for one night in one of the Master Maritime suites and found it warm, elegant and inviting. The blend of the heritage fixtures and the new modern fittings are beautiful. The suite boasts ample space in the bedroom and a sitting area off the bedroom to enjoy a meal or read the paper. The bathroom was fresh and clean with a very large shower. With the very thick heritage walls there is no outside noise to stop you sleeping in. The Motor Inn is within walking distances of the centre of town and parklands. The staff were extremely polite and helpful and the next time we are in Warrnambool this is where will will stay.

    We stayed here for two nights and would have loved to have stayed longer!! The room was lovely; my husband said it was the best night's sleep he'd had our entire trip. Raj and his staff (Bec, you are gorgeous) do anything and everything to make you feel comfortable. We had dinner in the restaurant both nights (unusual for us) and it was top class. Do yourself a favour, stay here, it is wonderful.

    « Wonderful weekend »

    We came for a short weekend visit and had a great room (easy parking outside the room, the room was clean with really comfy beds).

All the staff were friendly and helpful, and it's so close to town its just a nice walk into town.

    Great friendly staff, the restaurant meals are always fantastic with seasonal menu changes so it never gets boring. Great option of taking lunch with you the next day, from the sandwich lunch menu.

    « Awesome location, very comfy and wonderful staff »

    My son and I stayed in a Heritage Queen room. It was gorgeous and full of character and had plenty of room for an active 8 year old. Absolutely brilliant location near Flagstaff Hill, the Adventure playground and main streets. We ate at the restaurant or room service every night and never had a bad dish, and the breakfasts were more than adequate and when we had room service breakfast it was delivered perfectly on time and straight from the kitchen, no cold eggs like many places! The wait staff, the cleaning staff and the reception staff were all very friendly and helpful and everything was wonderfully smooth despite it being school holidays with the kids festival on and being quite busy. We normally stay at airbnb or the like, but decided to stay here instead as there were only the two of us. We will definitely stay here next time we are wanting to be in Warrnambool, even with the full family!

    « Base for visitation in Warrnambool »

    We , groups of 4 families stayed at Harbour Master Suite , There are 4 beautiful rooms each with sitting n pantry area n private toilets. There are 2 levels , two families in each level . Heater works well for cold whether , rooms are big, clean and cozy . We can gather in one room and have fun n laughter without worrying disturbing our neighbors. The only setback is the rooms upstairs have thin walls so do not raise loud voices . Our one kid make loud noises so it can disturb the next room at night . The loft area in the upper rooms was good for extra person in the room. We have a dinner at Clovelly restaurant and it was fabulous. Locality is near to laser show , beach and a park . With transport we can go to shops n supermarket nearby. Otherwise take a good walk and enjoy fresh air. There are free wifi and parking too. Will be back if we are coming to Warrnambool to visit friends again.

    « The BEST Best Western Ever »

    Visiting Warrnambool for a week and stayed at the Best Western Maritime for 3 nights. This has to be the BEST Best Western I have ever stayed at internationally and in Australia. Cheryl on reception was so lovely when we were inquiring on the days we were wanting to continue our stay in town. Ash booked us in and gave us a great room that was clean and cozy, good heating that is not noisy and in a quiet location. Their restaurant is fantastic to dine in. The location is perfect and in easy walking distance to the beach and all things in town. We could not fault this place at all. All staff are friendly and very accommodating to all needs. Thanks to all.

    « Absolutely excellent! »

    We've just spent two nights here and I only have excellent things to say about it! We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with excellent facilities including fully equipped kitchen and laundry. Heaters in all rooms and electric blankets on the beds. Loads of space and light for 3 adults. I've travelled extensively and the service here was among the very best I've encountered. The staff were all very welcoming and friendly, and the restaurant service was second to none. The food was great and it was very convenient having a good restaurant on site. The location was perfect, directly opposite Flagstaff Hill, and within easy driving access to the main shopping street. All of this, plus it's primarily in a beautiful heritage building. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

    My daughter and I left the booking of our room to my husband.....and what a fantastic room it was and a terrific price!! Our room faced to ocean and had a mezzanine floor where my husband and I slept in comfort. Our daughter had her own space down below. The staff were so helpful too-our daughter needed to do homework while we traveled the Great Ocean Road and the office staff, Raj, kindly printed it all out for her

    Hands down one of the best hotels I've -ever-. The staff made the experience with their genuine welcoming and dedicated assistance. Ate both from dinner menu, room service desert menu and breakfast menu and were 3 of the best meals I had our whole trip! Would stay here next time with no hesitation.

    « A Wonderful Week in Warrnambool »

    Arriving in Warnambool after a long train ride we were warmly welcomed by Emma the receptionist. We were delighted with the room just across Flagstaff Hill Maritime Village. We thoroughly enjoyed the Sound and Laser Show with dinner included. We chose the Clovelly Restaurant for our dinner where we were given exceptional service from Courtney. Our second night in the restaurant after such good food and service we were very well looked after by Bec. The location was really ideal being within walking distance for us both. We would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation to anybody.

    « Great location, helpful staff and comfortable room »

    My heading says it all. Our deluxe twin share room was spacious, comfortable and well lit for reading at night with a small garden area outlook. The staff could not have been more helpful. It is in a great location, a short walk to main shopping, over the road & down the hill to the beach path; a comfortable dining room if required, and a cosy bar area. Thank you sincerely.

    on arrival receptionist was lovely, very helpful and friendly. room i had booked direct with the Inn i assumed would look like the ones i had seen online, unfortunately this was not the case when we got in. refer to pics for accurate description of this room. I went to reception to voice my concerns and compromise a solution to this unacceptable situation, without hassle or question we were given a new room and treated with the most understanding and patient service. this reveiw is not a dig at the Inn, simply service to those of you wishing to stay there. Future refurbishments have been planned for these rooms which is great to see. over all we enjoyed our stay and will return.

    We spent 2 nights here and found the rooms to be lovely and comfortable, plenty of hot water. Not overlarge room but all we needed as we were out of a day. The first night we had lamb shanks, but these were tough. All our other meals were lovely and the staff were all friendly and helpful.

    « Great location with friendliest staff but........ »

    We booked an overnight stay for our family of four based on reviews on TripAdvisor. The Olde Maritime did not disappoint in terms of location (literally walking distance to Flagstaff Hill) and a warm welcome. We booked a Mezzanine room which was in the older building (formerly the Harbour Master's house) and this is where the problem lay for us. Old building means character but it also means olde world decor, creaky floors, thin walls, very small shower. Mercifully the room had air con as it was needed to get the room to a comfortable sleeping temperature. Breakfast was included in our package. Again the friendly waitress was chatty, accomodating and made our day. Breakfast was tasty but we do feel however that the breakfast was a little oversold raising our expectations, which it didn't quite meet. Free wifi, which is a nice bonus. Usual in room facilities available.

    We loved our accomodation here on our recent trip along the GOR. We stayed in one of the older rooms (I think it was called the heritage room) where the kids had their own beds and tv upstairs and we had our own bed and tv downstairs. We loved having our own "space" even though we were in the same room. We had a huge kitchen area - with a fridge and oven it would make the perfect self contained unit. Would have loved to have stayed longer. All the staff were extremely friendly and the restaurant food (both dinner and breakfast) was fantastic.

    From first reception to departure we couldn't fault our nights stay. Clean comfortable room, with minibar. Breakfast can be either room service or in the restaurant, which is also open for dinner. The manager at reception was extremely helpful when we left advising us to visit a place on the coast not many tourists go to and it was well worth the detour. Would we recommend staying here? Yes

People who travelled from far and wide to attend were so impressed with the whole experience. The foods was sensational, the variety of drinks great and the rooms were lovely.

    This is a great motel. We were only here one night, arrived late but were treated royally upon arrival. As two of us were suffering bad colds we ordered room service.

When we checked out, Raj and his wife gave us some great tips for travelling the GOR. Next time we'll stay longer. Highly recommended.

    We have stayed here many times before and always enjoyed it! Motel rooms are great, clean, nice restaurant, great central location. From Motel you can walk across the road to Old Flagstaff tourist attraction. 10mins walk to centre of Warrnambool for good pubs & restaurants. Motel is 15mins walk from Railway Station and 10 mins walk to RSL. We had come down on the train from Melbourne for the horse racing. We were really happy until on the morning of checkout we asked could we hold the room till 11am as we were then walking down to the Railway Station to catch the train back to Melbourne. Normal checkout is 10am. We were advised 'no way' could we stay on as the cleaning staff had to get in and clean the room. The day prior the cleaning staff did our room at 12 noon! Go figure! Needless to say we were not happy on leaving. One customer lost! On the way to the Railway Station (it was raining!) we called into the RSL and had a nice coffee while we waited for the train to arrive. That little bit of extra customer service could have made all the difference !!!

Ate in the Clovelly restaurant in the hotel, very yummy prawns and the most beautifully cooked lamb cutlets (fussy husband loved them!). Arrived too late to see the Flagstaff Museum, but village looked most impressive. A safe and pleasant stopover before hitting the Great Ocean Road back towards Melbourne.

    « Dysfunctional toilet , disorganized housekeeping but well located »

    My room was facing the main road and was a twin one ( a twin bed and a single bed) and apart from the old and dirty carpet it looked fine.My toilet flush did not work properly so when I got the room there was a bit of poo leftover in the toilet and I had to flush 5 times to clear up . I was there to work for 2 weeks in the field so I did not have time to enjoy and needed to use the room to shower and sleep; however there were days that the housekeeping did make my room up properly ( no towels, no tissues and toilet paper) and there were days that they did a good job. My bed was not extremely nice and the bedding are very average so if you are looking for nice quality bedding the make sure you double check your options in Warrnambool. The hotel is old and needs a renovation but staff are generally nice and the restaurant is OK. however the food portions are just too big ( bigger than American portions). I understand some people love big food portions but for me quality and quantity should have a reasonable balance.

    « Excellent hospitality and very comfortable »

    I stayed here for a one-night stay on business. The room was comfortable with all of the amenities that you would expect, was clean and well maintained. The location is a short distance away from the main street, though if you enjoy a stroll it is close enough to walk. The staff were all excellent - universally friendly and natural. I dined in the restaurant, and the food was very good - better than the average motel fare for sure. It was a pleasant stay and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again. It is obviously a property where care is taken.

    « Cozy hotel though noisy - not for the light sleeper »

    We stayed for one night at the Best Western. Overall, the service was super friendly and rooms were clean. The location is great - nearby several tourist attractions, viewpoints and good restaurants. However, it was a bit noisy with cleaning staff in the morning, sound of garbage trucks and other hotel guests walking by. We checked in a bit late (around 7pm), and had the unfortunate luck of getting the room next to the main entrance - which did not help on the noise level. We had an even more unfortunate event of a mis-delivered room service at 7am when we had originally planned to get up much later. Other members of my family had rooms further inside the complex, on the first floor, which was better but only slightly as it looks like most rooms have windows facing towards a road. With that said, the upper floor rooms are quieter and have less disturbance (note: it looks it's like stairs access only).

The second bedroom in our 2-bedroom apartment comes with a bunk bed and a single bed which serves my 3 children well, There's no aircon in the second bedroom but it's fine for sleep at night as temperature usually falls below 15C. The kitchen is well equipped,the dining and living areas are spacious and clean. Parking is right outside the apartment. We booked directly via its website and responses to our confirmation and amendment related to the booking were prompt. However, they ignored general enquiries about places around them.

    Pros: booking hotel was easy and Raj was very helpful and friendly. The location of this hotel is great for the beach, lake pertrobe, main strip of shops and cafes and flagstaff hill. Good cleaning service everyday who would make up the room. Ample car spaces with free parking. Cons: paper thin walls, felt we had to whisper when our neighbors were in their room. Loft was very hot, granted we were there on a nearly 40 degree day. There is a split system air conditioner that does not cool the loft on hot days. Could smell smoke from smokers outside in our room, they were smoking in the early mornings and could hear them as well. Made it difficult to sleep. Bathrooms were old, need an upgrade, however they were clean. Door to our room had a frosted window which compromised privacy and also the hallway had a light go on anytime someone would walk in our wing which would then come through the door window and affect sleeping.

    « Roaches and fluorescents everywhere! »

    I do not understand the good reviews. This place was terrible when we visited, There were rOaches everywhere in our room and the room & fixtures were old and dirty even though we paid extra for a "remodeled" room. the place seemed run down, the car park unsafe, the bathroom was not clean, and it's right next to a busy street so we were kept up all night with cars. We got out of there as quickly as possible.

    We had the opportunity for a short rail trip to Warrnambool for an overnight stay. Olde Maritime was close to Town & Station. Great amenities, rooms clean & fresh, service excellent, staff friendly and helpful. We had 2 rooms and they were equally as good but with different configurations. We had a great day and night but, as we checked out next day to walk to the Railway Station, it started to rain steadily. Before we knew it, reception arranged for a staff member to take the four of us and luggage door to door to catch our train in comfort. Above and beyond our expectations. Overall, a great short stay & we would happily recommend this accommodation and will certainly stay there again.

    « Ride the rail trail. »

    We traveled by train and took our bikes to do the Port Fairy/Warrnambool rail trail. Lock up storage for the bikes was provided and our room (deluxe) was very comfortable. All the staff were very helpful and friendly providing advice on the bike trail and a good cafe for morning teas. The rail trail was a bit rough and bumpy, definitely not road bike standard and we decided to return via the Princes Highway rather than redo the trail. The return ride was very scenic and a good shoulder on the road felt safe and stress-free. All up a total of 80 kms for a challenging but enjoyable ride with an enjoyable time in Port Fairy. . We ended up having dinner for our three night stay, at the on-site restaurant at the Motor Inn as the food was great. The fish was fantastic,fresh and very tasty. Visited the Maritime museum and the Sound and Light show. Would recommend Warrnambool for a relaxing 3 day stay.

    About 2 weeks ago we arrived from Apollo Bay without a reservation and as our adult daughter was with us the two bedroom self-contained cottage worked best. The walk in price was good. It was a real pleasure staying here and we booked 2 nights to relax after the stunning drive from Melbourne along the coast. On the first night we ate in the hotel restaurant and all our meals were good. A coffee maker was in the room, washer and dryer, a well equipped kitchen, and large rooms. Staff were amazing. We went to Port Fairy and Griffiths Island the next day. It was sunny and very windy but not beach weather. The internet in the cottage was so so (worked for us but not fast enough for my daughter) so she used the wifi in the lounge and enjoyed a coffee. I certainly recommend staying here.

    Decent motel with minimal stuff. Serves the purpose and is good value for money. Cleanliness was high; free wifi; and nice bedding. Rooms were a bit small but who cares as we were doing the great ocean road and only needed a spot to stay for the night. Oh yes another great thing is the restaurant which opens til late and even the reception closes @ 11pm which is v helpful for ppl who get caught up on the road. No rush to make it to the motel for check in : enjoy the great ocean road.

    Stayed one night in a mezzanine room. Reception staff were friendly and happy to answer all questions. It is close to the Pertobe recreation area which is a great place for kids of all ages, the beach and town. Whilst the corridors are looking a little tired the room was clean and had everything we needed. We also ate at the hotel restaurant which is unusual for us as we like to venture further. However we really enjoyed our meals which were reasonably priced and the kids meals for $12 did not have a chicken nugget in sight! Rather they included steak and smaller adult type meals which is rare but greatly appreciated. Overall we really enjoyed our stay.

    Just your usual motel - no feeling of wow!...for a minute I thought there might be a courtyard but the window didn't open so you can't let in the nice sea breeze even though the motel is just across the road from the beach. No views either. You need to rely on the air conditioner for fresh air so we never find that appealing. A bit more space than your usual hotel room and there was a small round table and 2 chairs. Decor was clean and functional - usual white sheets, cream walls, beige, beige, beige. Tea making facilities but tricky getting the water into jug using bathroom sink. It was good having the restaurant in this motel as the food was pretty good and we were tired after the GOR drive & sight seeing.

    From the moment we arrived here, Emma looked after us like royalty and made us feel very welcome. At dinner time we chose to eat in the motel restaurant and Emma even offered to ask the chef to prepare me a special vegetarian meal that wasn't on the menu. We had two courses and the food was delicious. If you have dessert here, order the sticky date pudding! Our room is well appointed, tastefully decorated, scrupulously clean and very comfortable.

    When I checked in, it was way past lunch and the receptionist asked what would I like to which I replied, "I'd love an egg sandwich." That's no problem I was told and a little while later I had the best egg sandwich ever - scrambled egg was light and fluffy, tasted wonderful and still warm. That's what I call service. My room was lovely - a standard queen room. It faced the busy street and had a lovely bay window where I would sit at the end of the day in the comfortable tub chairs. The room was well appointed with a television, toaster, electric kettle, tea bags/coffee sachets and individual sealed biscuit packets which were replenished daily. There was also a fridge. When I went to close the curtains, I accidentally pulled the top hanger off, I rang reception and they came over in less than 10 minutes to fix it. The bed was very comfortable, the bathroom/toilet clean and not poky. There was also a wardrobe with hangers. Located on the corner of Banyan And Merri Streets, it was a brief walk across the road from Flagstaff Maritime Museum and Village and within walking distance of the town. I enjoyed the meals in the restaurant and breakfast was good. With free newspapers to read, who could ask for more. Parking is outside your room. The staff were excellent and I would definitely stay here again.

    « Disappointing. »

    Location is good and first impressions were positive. However, the sound proofing is poor. We had to run the air-conditioning a lot to provide white noise to avoid hearing the conversations and TV from the adjacent rooms. I also had to wear ear plugs at night due to traffic noise. Very inconvenient was the fact that despite advertising having an onsite resteraunt and bar which we planned our Saturday night around, we were barred entrance at the door because of a private function!! Very ordinary. We won't be staying here again.

    « Great service, excellent rooms and furnishings »

    We stayed the long Melb Cup weekend of 3 nights. We couldn't fault the warm service and attention provide by Raj and all staff - 10 out of 10 to them. We stayed in the family mezzanine suite which was really nice. Extremely clean throughout, bed linen felt like great quality and the room was overall a delight to stay in. With wifi and two TVs, there was no shortage of keeping the kids entertained in those lull moments. I would definitely go back again. Nick

    « Normal looking rooms »

    This was our last stop along the GOR, the check in n out were a breeze. Weren't expecting much since it was meant to be a motel/Inn. The room looked like it would in pictures albeit the bathroom, esp the shower stall, which was quite small. Couldn't image how someone bigger than Asian size would feel. There's an air vent in the toilet that seem to be blowing/circulating cold air n it couldn't be turned off. So try bathing in that. Room was also very cold n there was no heater except for the bed warmers. No other complains except for the cold n small shower stall. Room was clean n tidy.

    « Comfortable friendly place »

    We stayed for two nights in room 40 which is a cottage with two bedrooms ( one double and the second with a single bed and bunk beds ), kitchen/living area. Large space,very clean, tea/coffee facilities provided. We were a couple travelling with friend. Would be ideal for a family as plenty of room. People very friendly and helpful. Food was good - ate breakfast once ( on weekdays this stops at 9am) with plenty of choice and dinner twice. Food was good and reasonably priced. Ideally situated across the road from the Heritage village and easy walking distance to the WAG. Recommend staying here.

    Raj and his team were very courteous, kind and helpful, what more could one ask for?. I was doing a solo, unaccompanied, un-assisted motor cycle ride around Australia, raising funds for the Childhood Cancer Assoc. In. c and this motel sponsored my night, not only that, they also made a donation the cause.

    « Excellent hotel, great location for Flagstaff Hill »

    Our room was very pleasant, quite large with a comfortable bed and very clean. The bathroom had both a bath and a shower, although the shower cubicle was rather small. Service both at check-in and check-out was prompt and courteous. We had dinner in the Clovelly Restaurant. The food was very well cooked, our only criticism is that we would have liked a wider choice of entrees. We also had breakfast in the Clovelly Restaurant, the range of cold food available was a little limited, but the cooked to order hot dishes were exceptionally good.

    « Stayed 2 nights with our baby »

    It wasn't difficult to choose Best Western Olde Maritime Motor Inn during our plans for the trip as their response were prompt. Though the email communications and the address stated here posed a little challenge to pin point it in the GPS, It was still relatively easy to locate it. I'll suggest they change the address to what they used on their namecard. If my memory serves me well, it was indicated as 113 Merri Street (That's the office address) Checking in and out was brief and simple. Staff were very helpful in providing us details about Warrnambool as it is out 1st visit. They did provide a playpen as a cot and beddings for a cot for our baby. We didn't use the playpen in the end as there were some stains on it. We didn't inform them though as the bed provided was big enough to co-sleep with our little one. The room decor is really vintage and fitting for a harbour town. Both my wife and myself loved the decor! Overall, it's a good stay with Best Western Olde Maritime Motor Inn.

    « Outstanding Service »

    While the hotel was a little dated the service certainly excelled. The receptionist surprised us by doing her best to speak to us in Afrikaans (our first language) and did a very good job. She was full of information and insider tips to exploring the town. When we had issues with our rental car she not only helped us contact our rental company, but also offered to drive us up the great ocean road to see the 12 apostles. We were blown away by the gesture and even though it wasn't necessary as our car problems were fixed, we appreciated the gesture. We found all the staff at this hotel to be very friendly and professional. The location is fantastic for exploring the town.

    « Ok room although smaller than pictures »

    We booked a suite at this motor lodge although I'm sure it was listed as a hotel. The room on the website looked quite spacious but in fact it was cramped and dark. Other than that it was clean with a shower but no bath. We prepaid breakfast but don't recommend you do that as same price available. The first night we were kept awake until 2.30 with what sounded like speedway noise. Second night I think the dustbin Larry came at 1.30 am. We ate in the restaurant the first night but it was pretty average so ate out the second night. Breakfast was very good though, we had pre paid but wouldn't do that unless you like a cooked breakfast every day as continental good at 6 dollars less. Kids choices excellent. Our waitress at breakfast was excellent, she had recently returned from Scotland and she was lovely.

    « What a lovey Restaurant Experience! »

    The moment we arrived we felt at home. The staff were very personable and looked after us like one of the family. Our meal was of a very high standard! Obviously the Chef and his staff know food and how to balance a dish to perfection. A lovey evening that we will remember always and we will recommend this place to our friends and family.
