A very affordable place to stay considering that it is directly opposite the beach. The property is a little on the old side but the units are extremely well maintained and very clean. The units are comfortable and fully equipped with everything you need for your stay. The property is located in beautiful gardens with bbq's available for guests. Its... More

the stay was ok. the bathroom wasnt what i would call spotless. nice to be near the beach, little bit far from the town centre. motel is right next to the road so if you have a sea view then sleeping is perhapos more difficult than the cheaper units without a sea view. i would probably choose something a little...

We were enjoying The Great Ocean Road and had not made arrangements for accommodations as we didn't know where our day would end. It was early evening when we made it to Apollo Bay and the staff could not have been more accommodating. They gave us their last room which was a double when we only needed a single, and... More

Our group of 7 found these accomodations to be absolutely perfect for our needs. The rooms have a large lounge area with a large table that we could all fit around to eat or play games. The motel is right across the road from the ocean. The traffic during late March was pretty nonexistant during the evening and nighttime hours,... More

we booked this motel on the strength of it reviews but unfortunately it didnt quite live up to it. the motel is right on the great ocean road which made finding it very easy. however, this was a double edged sword as it also made sleeping quite hard. we visited in january so there was a constant stream of cars...

One of my favorite places ever to stay! Perfect location, perfectly clean, and gracious, professional owners/operators. The location was completely outfitted with everthing you would need for a comfortable stay, with gorgeous views of the beach, and the sounds of crashing surf to lull you to sleep. Easy to walk to shops, cafes, parks. The gardens are well maintained and... More

We had a one-night stay in the middle of winter, low season. Wonderful communication with the owner, who emailed to say the amex was not accepted, so please phone to use visa. No problem. On phoning, we were told we'd been upgraded to a more spacious appartment. Good price for the facility, and you get what you'd expect at that... More

Clean. Fireplace, heater and electric blankets were fabulous after a freezing day driving and sight seeing. Comfortable beds. Management was out when we phoned for a replacement electric blanket and hair dryer, but delivered them when they returned a couple of hours later. Friendly lady. We were in a front unit, but didn't hear traffic noise. Good standard 2 bed... More
