Robe Harbour View Motel: The Perfect Place to Stay on the Magnificent Limestone Coast

October 5, 2012

In a region renowned for its sparkling bays, stunning beaches and charming seaside villages, the award-winning Robe Harbour View Motel on South Australia’s Limestone Coast is the perfect base to explore the local area, or break a journey between Melbourne and Adelaide. Owners Robbie and Don Maddern have spent the last ten years transforming this property into quality, value-for-money accommodation that now draws visitors from across the globe.

A Location to Love

Nestled in the south-eastern corner of the state, the Limestone Coast is renowned for its stunning natural wonders, and Robe is a friendly, laidback town, rich in seafaring history. It also lies along the main route for travellers between Melbourne and Adelaide. The Harbour View Motel was constructed in the ‘70s, and overlooks lovely Guichen Bay, a hub for local fisherman, who for more than a century have been making their living from the crayfish, snapper and shark that inhabit these waters. Robe also has a history as a bustling port, being a centre for wool export, and the spot where thousands of Chinese first set foot in the country en route to the Victorian goldfields to seek their fortune during the gold rush.

Natural and Culinary Attractions

While plenty of those who stay at the Harbour View are making the trip between Melbourne and Adelaide, others head to the Limestone Coast specifically to explore its charms. Mount Gambier’s spectacular Blue Lake, and the megafauna fossils in the World Heritage Listed Naracoorte Caves, are just two of the incredible sites in the region. It’s also an area of world-renowned wineries and fabulous seafood. The Madderns are always keen to share culinary recommendations with guests, with the town now boasting some great restaurants. Don’t miss the crayfish!

A Commitment to Quality

Former farmers, Don and Robbie Maddern first swapped the wide plains of the Victorian Wimmera region for the picturesque coastal town of Robe ten years ago. And they never looked back. With a commitment to great service and a knack for knowing just what visitors need – and want – in a motel, they have regularly attained a high turnover of guests. Part of their strategy has entailed an on-going policy of room refurbishment, which has ensured the accommodation remains clean, stylish and attractive. This, in tandem with a focus on friendly, attentive service, and value for money, has resulted in the couple being a three-time winner of South Australia’s award for ‘Excellence in Tourism for Motels’.

The Harbour View may be a small motel, but hard work and friendly service means guests are beautifully looked after. An attention to detail, personalised service and a variety of rooms for different budgets makes this hotel the ideal getaway.

So if you’re looking for a family holiday, a cosy few days away as a couple, or a place to stay overnight to break a longer journey, the Harbour View is a lovely hotel, in a wonderful part of the world.
