This Instagram-worthy motel will make you feel like you’ve travelled to Palm Springs.

Boasting the perfect balance between contemporary coastal living with a touch of glamour, the owners of the Anglesea Riverside Motel have nailed the relaxed Cali style in the heart of the coast.

The motel, previously Anglesea Motor Inn, was built in the 70s and under the guise of new owners, received a fresh coat of bright paint and refurbishment early this year to restore the original building with a hell of a lot more character.

Sitting pretty in the heart of Anglesea, opposite the river, the boutique motel is the ideal location to explore the Surf Coast. With 16 newly refurbished Deluxe Rooms and a Three-Bedroom Apartment, comfort is well and truly at the heart of the operation, focusing on openness and ease.

Originating from the Californian city of the same name, Palm Springs decor pairs an effortlessly chic take on mid-century modern design with a playful twist and the motel has embraced that entirely.

Each room is filled with bright and relaxed interiors to make your stay ever so enjoyable, with minimalist rattan furniture, a natural palette with pops of colour (lots of electric oranges), lashes of greenery, vivid throws and cushions, colourful pottery, rounded out with a dash of glamour, and a sprinkle of whimsy.

Cultivating a sunny state of mind, you’ll also find a refurbished outdoor pool and a bright lounge area, alongside a tennis court, access to a fitness centre and to the thrilling trampoline park which boasts a bar for the adults. Located merely a stone’s throw away, guests can indulge with luxurious massage, body and facial treatments from an extensive spa menu at Lux Spa and Wellness, while inspired local eats can be explored at stunning nearby restaurants including The Coast, The Deck and Riverside Juice Bar, all adding to the dreamy resort-style aesthetic.

Despite only having opened its refurbished doors merely months ago, the motel has already become home to visitors looking to create the Palm Springs haven of their dreams. It’s pretty much paradise.

The Anglesea Riverside Motel is located at 109 Great Ocean Road, Anglesea. Check it out and book your stay here
