For the price, we expected the King Studio villa to be a somewhat luxurious accommodation. However, we found it to be rather basic. Highlights : - Spectacular panoramic views from the room; - Bathroom was roomy with a washing machine & a nice big shower. Lowlights : - Room was basic, dated and cold in decor. There was not a...

Room with a view is an understatement ... These villas make you feel like you are on top of the world, with large glass windows in the lounge area opening a view over the coastline and Apollo Bay. The rooms are well appointed, but with such an amazing view, you hardly look anywhere else. The staff were so welcoming and... More

Interesting food belying the usual warning about food with a view. But the views from the rooms and the restaurant down to the sea are spectacular. Eat early evening to get maximum impact by day and night. Rooms are comfortable and well equipped. A bit of a hike back up from Apollo Bay if you are staying for several days... More

We wanted to try the restaurant because of the justifiably good reviews, and enjoy a drink or two, so, given the distance from Apollo Bay, we stayed the night. Not cheap, but worth it for the amazing views of Bass Strait. Room was nicely appointed. Funky bathroom. Even had an ocean view from the shower!

Stayed 1 night with my family in Villa 7. + GREAT view of the ocean + Great for star-gazing too! + Spacious + Basic but clean rooms + Good breakfast + Restaurant serves great food (so I didn't mind paying a little more) and service was great. - A slightly pricey stay. But if you are travelling with your friends/family... More

A great two days staying at Chris's. Excellent location. Fantastic restaurant. Up there with the best. Chris himself provides that old fashioned welcoming service. Little extras like dipping bread/olive oil with olives. Offered a complimentary ouzo to start your evening meal. Villas are good with electric blankets, washing machine, heating etc. fairly pricey but we felt it was worth it.... More

This was our 8th stop on our trip around Australia. We decided to stay here as it is advertised as 'luxury accommodation' and it was one of our treats on a long journey. At $330 per night for a one room villa, we expected what ordinarily would be presented in luxury accommodation, however it was lacking those extra touches that... More

This place has a 5-star view for a 3-star room. Set in a hillside above the Great Ocean Road you’ll have stunning views of the ocean below. It’s perfect for sitting on your balcony to watch the sun set with a bottle of Australian wine. We were upgraded to the king suite, which was very large. It has a kitchenette,... More

Had a great dinner here, decor is very modern, perhaps a tad sterile, but very nice anyway. The views are fantastic. Wait staff were very professional, food came quickly and was very tasty indeed. Who can ask for more.
