Handy location along the Great Ocean Road, very quiet despite being not too far off the main road, friendly and helpful manager at reception, spacious rooms nicely decorated with additional homely touches like pictures and cushions, spotlessly clean, comfy beds, well-stocked kitchenette with all you might need (including Tetley teabags!), shampoo and shower gel also provided in the shower room....

We were two couples staying the night and were so pleased when we arrived! Great facilities, bbq area was perfect and really clean. Rooms were decent size and very clean, even had foxtel! (And foxtel sport for the boys) My fiancé and I cannot wait to go back for a weekend on our own! Such a peaceful and beautiful place... More

Very friendly manager, helpful and informative. Was given room nearest road - but no problem with noise - its a quiet area over a mile past the main drag. We found it perfectly clean , nicely appointed, with some optional drinks etc to buy. Interesting birds line up for photos if you wish.

We arrived in Apollo Bay after travelling the GOR having spent the day sight seeing the twelve apostles and we were looking for a place to recharge our batteries. Well how lucky were we to make the call to the Marengo. Yes they had a room and the rate was extremely pleasing to the ear. Arrived and found an amazingly... More

Stayed here for one night and both myself and my son loved it. The welcome and the info Janes gave us was lovely and seeing all the colourful birds within 5 mins of being was just great. Truthfully more comfortable and accommodating than the one we've just arrived in and the one we left in Melbourne. If your travelling along... More

Excellent position, exceptionally helpful and friendly manager, very nice family room, immaculate premises. The manager recommended the local pub for dinner where we had a very pleasant meal. I would recommend this to anyone.

Stayed there on the 15/9/14 and were pleasantly surprised by what was inside. The guy at reception was a 10/10. So nice and friendly and could even tell us where to see glow worms and other tourist attractions around Apollo bay. Would definitely recommend to anyone going thru or even wants to stay there for a week. I did notice... More

Did the Great Ocean Road and figured we'd make a stop in Apollo Bay to cut up the drive a bit. Right off the GOR route is the Motel Marengo. Too cold for us to use the pool (didn't even see it, by the way!), but we can say this: James, the proprietor, was incredibly helpful and interested in giving... More

One of the few places that would let you book just one night on great ocean road for a decent price. It's a small place with only a few rooms (10 or so?) and they are right opposite the reception. The rooms are are 'cottage' style and big enough for 4 adults to stay comfortably. The place was clean, quiet... More
