We stayed here for one night in late March, while driving the Great Ocean Road from west to east. Apollo Bay is an ideal stopping point, and driving west to east is preferable to the other direction (meaning start from Adelaide, or points southeast, not from Melbourne), which is dominated by large and mid-size buses full of mindless tourists who...

I've been there with my girlfriend and we found it so comfortable! The best stop during the Great Ocean Road! Everything was perfect! I was there in last may and it was so cheap!!! The room is really really big, clean, silent with a little outside private terrace/garden! There is also the best bed i've ever slept and the bathroom... More

Room was of a good size and well equipped. The bathroom was modern with a shower but no bath. The cost of wi-fi was high. Why? We found breakfast to be good with a varied choice of items. The best bit was the laundry, ot too expensive and very useful when you are touring. Excellent fish restaurant on the seafront.... More

Not sure about "Captain's" there is a lot to like about it but it is set back from the beach and was one of the more expensive places we stayed in while touring. We had one of the "new" rooms at the back of the hotel, complete with "double" bath in the room and a good sized balcony - Very... More

Very good rooms, less good dining room, but friendly and well situated in Apollo Bay. Easy parking by rooms, and laundry room which was great. Close enough to walk down to beach which was stunning. Close to excellent fish restaurant. Infuriatingly you have to keep paying for wi-fi, and it doesn't work well.

It does not look much from the outside and is set back a few minutes walk from the beach. However, we immediately took to our spacious, well equipped room/suite with its own small back yard, which we sat in for our carry-out meals in the evenings (we recommend George's food hall/takeaway on main street). It was great to have free... More

Quite close to the coast - 1 short block away. Serves breakfast but no other meals. Clean and tidy. Our room was on the ground floor, with its own outside courtyard. Dedicated car parking space for each room. Crockery available if you chose to bring in a take-away meal. DVDs available to borrow and watch in your room. Breakfast was... More

Never had a better sleep in my life, the beds were so comfy. Breakfast was very tasty and the bath in the bedroom was a nice touch. Apollo bay itself is beautiful and well worth a visit if travelling the great ocean road.
