    Hi Michael. Thank you for a great review. We have been working very hard over the last 12 months doing all the rooms up. I would hate to do the outside and have you walk into old rooms. Hope to see you again.

    I have stayed at the Otway Gate Motel several times in the past 6-months. Bathrooms clean and modern (possibly the best in town). Room always clean, and comfy bed. I like being able to reheat meals in the room. Staff always helpful and friendly.
