There is a lovely beach just 5 minutes walk down the road, Apollo Bay with it's shops and restaurants is a short drive away and James and Andy... More

Motel Marengo was a great place for a little family holiday on the Great Ocean Road. The pool and spa were such a nice feature for this small capacity motel, we used them almost every day. The local wildlife (parrots, cockatoos, rosellas) were gorgeous and friendly. And the manager James was always on hand to answer questions and help out.... More

Comfortable, clean and close to everything. Loved feeding the wild parrots, shopping, nearby restaurants, pool, spa and the beach. Nothing was too much trouble with friendly, cheery service. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The motel owner was very friendly and helpful, providing us with useful advice on where to go and what to do.The room was quite spacious and could easily accommodate a family. If the weather had been warmer we would have enjoyed the surrounding gardens more and... More

Good place to stay on the Ocean Road just outside Apollo Bay. The motel represents good value for money, good size room with fridge, toaster, kettle and crockery and cutlery. Pleasant owner/manager who provided information on places to visit. Parking bay outside each room, there is a swimming pool and friendly exotic birds.

The owners are friendly, room is clean and cozy. The area has many wild parrots and the owner provided us seeds for the parrots in the morning. Good for family with kids. The motel is also near to the beach.

We enjoyed feeding the parrots too! We would... More

In Apollo Bay around 2-3 Km away lies a small township called Marengo and a beautiful place called Motel Marengo. Highlights of my stay: - Its a very good value for money stay. - If you are a bird lover, then... More
