We booked last-minute-ish for a trip on the GOR, and chose this property not so much for the price - which was excellent compared to most on the route, including private hostel rooms - as the availability, so I wasn't expecting much. However, it was clean, comfortable, and featured a lovely ocean view. Walking distance to a lovely rocky, tide-pooly... More

Property is clean, and has a fun grass area that our kids enjoyed running around on. Location is so-so, nothing is really within walking distance. Rooms are fairly old, with cinder brick walls. It wasn't really bad, nor was it really good. Just a place to sleep.

The motel is set back from the road across from the beach. The room was nice and had a refrigerator and good AC. As it was a holiday weekend, they got lots of $$ for just a motel. The owners were friendly and helpful.

Pulled into the lodge 2 days before New Year on a long shot that there may be a room available. We got the last room at a discounted rate for New Year! It's a 3 star and has to be assessed on that basis. We give it 5 out of 5. Sea view, great owners, log fire in room. We... More

We booked two standard double rooms at the beginning of August for 1 night. On arrival we were given a warm welcome and told that we had been upgraded to ocean view rooms, which was good. The room was compact, but managed to contain everything we required to make breakfast very neatly. Everything was spotlessly clean, and electric blankets on... More

Supurb ocean views and easy access to the beach across the highway. The bed was comfortable, hot showers, and basic coffee/tea facilities available. Wine was available for purchase in the dining...

My wife and I spent three nights at Skenes Creek Motel and found the rooms to be very clean and well maintained with good amenities. Skenes Creek is only a seven minute drive to the hustle and bustle of Apollo Bay yet far enough away to provide a peaceful and quiet back drop. The motel is set far enough back... More

We stayed just one night, before the Great Ocean Road half marathon. Initially booked through booking.com and so did someone else at the same time. The owner, Trevor, called me and explained situation and offered a cheaper rate (for two single bed room), great service. Also, in person, Trevor and Linda are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and... More
