We had a pokey room facing the carpark for $170 a night. It was clean and the bed was comfortable but a classic example of why travelling in Australia can be so depressing: to be in such a lovely location but paying astronomical prices for a glorified broom cupboard really takes the shine off the whole experience.

Nice clean and tidy rooms, a bit on the small side but functional. We stayed in mid April and it was around $145, a bit expensive for what it is but it is right in the middle of town, close to shops and restaurants so I suppose you are paying for location. It offers free WiFi, and has a swimming... More

Lots to see, fishing and some of Australia's best coastline. Accommodation was neat and tidy and FAMILY owners where happy and helpful. Great spot, stone throw from the beach and shops! Can't wait to be back there next Holiday. Will definitely stay there next time

We stopped over in Apollo Bay for a couple of nights. We hadn't booked anywhere so turned up on spec. as most of the accommodation in the area was already taken (something to do with the annual Agricultural show). and were pleasantly surprised. The service from the owners (who live on site) was excellent. The room was clean and had... More

Looked for somewhere roughly halfway between Melbourne and the Twelve Apostles. A comparatively new motel; brick built;; and no attempt to do anything, but paint the inside bricks,for decor ! Basic in the extreme; I thought the nightly charge A$280 for a basically two room apartment, grossly over charged. (I am currently in a 4* hotel in the centre of... More

We received this review with some concern, as our guest are normally very pleased with our clean comfortable rooms and great service. As you do not provide a name we are not able to see what room you were in or if you even stayed with us. Our Motel is not in fact “comparatively new” but built in the 80’s... More

Excellent service with a view towards helping the client. Booking arrangement is very friendly and efficient. Phone outside the reception for service after hours if problem. Room was clean and large including a small table and wardrobe. Restaurants are closed by. Parking available in front of the door.

We had a very nice, clean and cosy apartment. The people (the family who owned it) were outstandingly cordial and helpful. Good location concerning shops and restaurants. The beach is very nice, and Great Ocean Road near.

We stayed here whilst driving the Great Ocean Road. The motel is very centrally located, close to shops and restaurants and the beach. Our room was very spacious, and well equipped, although we could not get the wi-fi to work unless we stood out in the car park. It has a guest laundry, and breakfast was included, which was good.

Close to all you'll need in Apollo Bay while being just back from the main street. Very well maintained property plus helpful family management. Television reception improvement is on the local communities agenda. Very good italian restaurant located directly opposite the motel.
