I recently stayed 2 nights at this motel. My room was extremely comfortable and had everything I could have needed including a kettle, toaster, microwave, hairdryer, electric blanket and even a USB port for charging. Even though the room was relatively small there was a lot of storage space. The room has been totally renovated, lovely bathroom with a rain shower and everything was spotlessly clean (and I can be fussy when it comes to cleanliness). Lovely linen and towels. There was car parking at the door so it was easy to unload and load the car. Graeme at reception was very welcoming and helpful right from my phone call to make the booking. I could not fault this motel and would definitely stay again next time I'm in the area.

Friendly and efficient welcome from Graeme. The rooms are spotless and have everything you need, even bath sheets instead of tiny towels. Graeme also recommended The Austral Hotel for dinner which was fabulous. My only regret with Otway Gate was that we were only there one night. A pleasure to meet Lily when I returned the key after a wonderful night's sleep. Hope to stay again.

The best Motel in Melbourne! Me and my partner broke down in otway park and had this accommodation booked for us for the night! All I can say is 6 stars! The rooms are clean, spacious, fully equipped and modern. The owner and his partner are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet! They even drove us to the shops to get food as all the deliveries were closed and we had not eaten all day due to the breakdown. If you are looking for a motel, hotel, airBNB or any form of accommodation, look no further than Otway Gate Motel!!!! 🙂
