We did not have a great experience here. I think we were allocated the owners quarters (never a good sign in my experience). We were told that if we wanted crockery/cutlery we could find it in the desk at reception. The apartment kitchen had been locked off. The overall feel was a bit tatty. Eating recommendations from the receptionist consisted... More

Did you forget to mention that I refunded your travel agent 50% of your total tariff??? Apollo Bay is currently having issues with free to air TV. There is Foxtel with one of the best packages available.( All movie channels) We have Dvd’s in reception with a sign saying “Dvd’s can be borrowed by a gold coin donation”. As we... More

Captain's is conveniently located one street back from the beach, initially I was disappointed that we were not on the beachfront but when I saw the room I wasn't disappointed anymore! Our room was in "The Bridge" Section specifically the "Sou East" suite. The room was lovely, it was beautifully appointed and also had a veranda out the front where... More

This little hotel was so surprising. We were running late enjoying the fabulous drive down the great ocean road. The staff were very friending and accommodating to organise a key and give directions. When we arrived the room was spectacular with the biggest bath I have ever seen in a hotel. We had a great soak in the bath and... More

My parter and I stayed here over night in the 'Loft'. The room was super cosy and well kept. TV in rooms, enough towels and essentials. The only downside is there is no kitchen/utensils - so be prepared to bring some if you need. Otherwise, very impressed! Recommended for sure :)

Fabulous location, comfortable bed, modern, spacious bathroom, friendly staff and breakfast thrown in. Best poached eggs I've enjoyed in a long time. What more could we ask for. They also provide laptops and printer for guest use as well as Foxtel and dvd's to borrow. We would certainly stay again if we were to revisit this region

Could not have asked for a better place to stay. The HUGE bath in the middle of the room was fantastic, location was perfect (walking distance to restaurants etc), breakfast buffet was delicious, hotel room was pure luxury, staff were friendly... absolutely perfect. Will be back for sure!

3 of us stayed in The Loft, a really well appointed villa on 2 levels with 2 proper double bedrooms, one of which is ensuite. The standard of decor, fixtures and fittings and cleanliness was first class, plus there are cool touches like a sensor light which comes on if you use the stairs at night and heat lamps in... More

As this was booked through our travel agent, we weren't expecting such a large and well-appointed room when we pulled in. We stayed in one of the Terrace rooms. Although not one of the most luxurious units, definitely lovely and large. The bathroom had a shower only but it was still very spacious and new. The bedroom area had two... More

We only stayed for the one night in the Captains Cottage but wished it was longer. Its a lovely spacious room with a very comfy double bed a large double walk in shower and twin basin bathroom. The breakfast was very nice with eggs and bacon cooked to your preference.
