3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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.

The view from the room is great. However the room was not as advertised. We booked through Hotels.com . Advertised as having a balcony, newly refitted rooms and a roof top terrace on property,. Ours didn't have a balcony and was dated. So decided to go to the roof top terrace to have an afternoon drink. No one know what... More

View is great, seeing the sunrise over the ocean is worth one night and one dinner, at the most. Must drive to the location, as it is located well away from town and on top of a hill. Villas are clean but old. Each villa has a master bedroom and a guest bedroom with basic amnesties such as microwave, fridge... More

We stayed here driving home from Melbourne to Adelaide. It was for my birthday so we wanted to stay somewhere nice. Nailed it! We had one of the studio villas down on the lower level with uninterupped ocean views. No description would do this place justice. It was just beautiful. We slept with the blinds open so we could watch... More

We were very happy with our stay here. It is a little way out of Apollo Bay township up on a hill with magnificent views. You do need a car to get there. The dinner in the restaurant was fantastic and the hospitality great. It worked really well for us to drive from Melbourne and arrivė and be able to... More

This is an an amazing place from a view perspective. The vista is one of the best at Apollo bay - however they are pricey for what they are given the rooms, bed and overall experience is one of a tired place.

Stayed a night here after receiving a voucher for dinner as a gift. The rooms had the most amazing view. Worth the stay alone. The rooms are quite plain really and could do with a bit of an update especially for the money. Still would recommend a stay to anyone. Felt like we're in the clouds in the morning.
