We stayed here overnight on our way from Melbourne to the Twelve Apostles with a visitor from Italy. It was a cold rainy night and the heater had been turned on in the room for our arrival. Also, when we told Deb that we wouldn't be going out for dinner, but staying in the room, she insisted on giving us... More

This was our first stop over on a four night trip on the Great Ocean Road to Ballarat and was by far one of the nicest. The lady on the reception was wonderful and was full of information for the area giving good advise of things to do and see while we were in the Apollo Bay area. The heating... More

After a long day of driving, being met by Anya on reception was a true gift. Such a warm and inviting welcome. Stayed in room 1 with spa bath and balcony. All the little extra touches made a big difference-loved the powerpoints with USB on the bedside tables. Room was spotlessly clean and recently updated. Anya gave perfect recommendations for...

Receptionist is very nice, and give us a lot of useful informations. The room is tidy and clean. We have all we needed, eg. electrical water pot, microwave oven. The shower water is big and comfortable. Cross the road, we can easily go to the beach. It is really nice.

We spent a night there and the room was absolutely clean and fresh. The toilet/bathroom was spotless and bright. The decor was up-to-dated and fashionable for a value motel. The only little drawbacks were the sound insulation was a bit below our standard which we can hear the tv noise from next door and the air-conditioner is a bit noisy... More

Great location and super friendly and helpful staff. Had a spa bath room which was excellent and very relaxing. Enjoyed the little extras such as small milk bottles instead of those dreadful little containers.

We stayed there for the night while touring around the Great Ocean Road. It was definitely a good choice. I booked one of the SPA room and as it was in winter, we really appreciated that, as well as the bed heater (and free WiFi). I can't pinpoint exactly what made us feel that way but it just felt comfortable... More

Very friendly helpful service on arrival. Close to shops and cafes. Unit was very comfortable and warm - especially in the polar blast. Heat pump was on so room warm on arrival. Nice outdoor area to sit in summer.

Excellent position and very helpful with directions and recommendations. Very clean and a bargain price for the position in front of the beach. We would recommend anyone who wants a break away to go here
