Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Booked to stay for a quick overnight to see if we could catch some whales in Warrnambool (we didn’t!)

Arriving at the hotel, we entered via an automatic door; great, no contact required, reception had paper copies of everything required and a hospital type room service breakfast menu was available for us to take away and complete. Very simple and easy!

Sign posts everywhere displaying how many people can be in each area.

Room was a little cold, heated blankets on the bed were there but didn’t work, no great issue as wasn’t there long. Air con unit blew heat through no problem.

Table and chairs for eating in room, although no sanitizer in room there was hand wash lotion, just as good.

Had drinks in the bar, served at our table, from a distance and again, given a paper menu.

Watched staff wipe down tables and chairs after each person left, not just briefly but really well. Good effort team!

Great breakfast, good value, good stay in difficult times, will be back!

We have stayed at Old Maritime Motor Inn in March each year for more than 10 years to attend the Port Fairy Folk Festival. PFFF is 25m drive away, Warrnambool is a good option if you don't want to camp and don't want to spend $$$$$ for town accomm, if you were lucky enough to find some. Every year we book the same room and it suits the needs of two couples and a teen perfectly. No complaints, the staff are friendly and always call to confirm arrangements. All the supplies you need are close by and you can always have a meal in one of the main street cafes. Highly recommended.

Courtney was an absolute pleasure to deal with. She was extremely helpful & fulfilled all my requests without hesitation on a short notice booking. I requested a downstairs room, with a spa, toaster & microwave. Courtney also was very obliging & prompt to bring some plates, bowls & cutlery to my room when I requested. The room itself was very clean, quite spacious & in a nice quiet downstairs corner with a rear small garden area. There was a nice corner spa & a good size TV. It was a shame that there wasn't a king size bed in the room. In my personal opinion I found the bed to be a little bit to firm for my liking. It would be nicer if there was a pillow/comfort/memory-foam style topper/overlay option available to put on the mattress.

Hello 999-Cass, Thank you so much for your kind review. Courtney will be thrilled to know that she made your stay very enjoyable. We are currently looking into the possibility of putting king beds in our Deluxe Spa rooms and will certainly check that mattress. Looking forward to seeing you again the next time you come to Warrnambool.

We stayed here years ago and remember a very comfortable, clean and perfectly positioned hotel. It is still all these things and more. Raj Patel ensures excellent service and a super comfortable stay. Our adult daughters and my husband and I had two very lovely rooms side by side, with modern recently renovated bathrooms complete with rain showers. We enjoyed a delicious room service dinner, a perfect solution to the challenges of getting restaurant bookings during COVID restrictions. The room service was prompt, fresh and hot. Seafood lovers are well catered for and I hope in future there may be more substantial vegetarian options. We would recommend booking this hotel direct and booking a table near the open fire in the restaurant.

I don’t usually stay at motor inns, but we stayed 2 nights when driving the Great Ocean Road and was impressed by the cleanliness, the crisp sheets, updated and spacious bathroom, free bottles of water and friendly staff. Location was great - 2 blocks to the Main Street, 1 from the waterfront and not too much further to the spa and mineral baths in Warrnambool. From the GOR perspective, a day from here can include Bay of Islands through to the 12 Apostles easily, so happily recommend Best Western Olde Maritime as a stop over!

Premium twin room was a good size and had large screen tv with limited foxtel , fridge in the room was helpful ... it's a great location with ample parking and you can walk or drive to anywhere easily from here. The bed and breakfast rate was good value , with a quality breakfast served in the restaurant to the table (who wants to go near a buffet atm). The door key needed to be reprogrammed a couple of times so ask for a spare and keep away from your phone/wallet.

Thank you IanG263, We are so happy you liked our new big screen TVs. We have recently upgraded them in the hope to make everyones viewing more enjoyable. I agree that our bed and breakfast rate is fantastic value and available to those that book direct! I think buffets may be a thing of the past now and al a carte is much more hygeinic. That is a great tip about keeping the hotel keys away from mobile phones as it can wipe the programming. Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review for us and we look forward to seeing you again.

Very friendly and efficient staff, overseen by the enthusiastic manager, Raj. Room was spacious and very clean, bathroom spotless. Our room was in the wing by Merri St, which can be busy (thus a bit noisy) in daytime, but is quiet at night. Didn't bother us, but if it's an issue, ask for a room in one of the other wings, which would be quieter.
The room was attractively laid out, and has a large TV, netflix included (but, unlike the people before us, remember to log out, or following guests can use your account!) Could open a window, which was good for fresh air.
It also hosts the Clovelly restaurant & bar, one of Warnambool's best restaurants.
Best of all, it's a short walk round the corner to the centre of town, shops, restaurants, cafes, etc, and a very short stroll in the opposite direction to the Flagstaff Hill attraction.
Recommended.

Last minute change of plans saw us head to Warrnambool, we stayed in a 2 bed apartment (2A and 2C) which was very spacious and clean, every convenience catered for. Kitchen, dining, living and laundry an added benefit. Excellent price for such a great central location in peak season, recommended to friends (who also stayed the same week) and will recommend again. Thank you!

Our family stayed one night at the Mezzanine family room. The front-desk staff was helpful, and the restaurant onsite would be convenient for grabbing food or drinks. Pertobe park and Flagstaff Hill are within a short walk. There was a New Year Carnival/Market at Pertobe park during our stay so it was super cool that we could just walk there without having to frustratingly look for a parking lot.
We liked the room decoration; its vintage deco with the wallpapers made it feel warm and cozy. The laundry room for guests was handy because we were on a road trip and needed to do laundry on that day. The room was spacious enough for all of our stuff no we were satisfying with its size.
My kids liked climbing up and down the stairs in the room because we don't have one at home. However, just be a bit more careful or make sure that the lights are on when walking down those stairs because the wood colour was a bit dark so I found the steps a bit hard to see clearly without the lights.
The bathroom looks a bit dated, but it was spotless clean and I actually liked the tiles' design in there. The waterflow was strong and adjusting warm/cold water was easy.
We stayed on the 3rd floor which has no lift access but it was okay for us because we packed our luggage light and small enough to carry them around.
If there was one thing that I could suggest for improvement, then it would be the bedframes. The beds were on roller legs, so they would move when someone slightly lean on them.

Dear Nhung, Thank you for your detailed review and I'm happy you enjoyed your stay. The new luxury beds are on casters to make it easier for my housekeeping team to make the bed. I've renovated 22 bathrooms and planning on renovating 11 more in May 2023. I'll have a look at the lighting in your room. Enjoy the rest of your holidays, see you again soon.

Restaurant just recently reopened. Excellent food and wine. Because of seating limits you can get room service for dinner and breakfast at no extra charge. Our spa room was very comfortable but quite dark as it was below street level.

We had the special too and you can use the normal buffet but you can also order from the regular hot meals menu. So buffet plus a delicious hot dish like french toast, pancakes, eggs or anything else!
