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.

We recently went here on a Saturday night. Views are great but you can get them elsewhere in the area for nothing. The food was mediocre and unadventurous and very overpriced. The highlight was the very friendly and professional staff. Would not recommend.

Wonderful room with great view. Floor plan very nice for a space of this size. Nice amenities. Restaurant on site. Fairly pricey, but the food and setting quite nice. One hour forty five minutes drive to 12 apostles. Nice restaurants and grocery in town just a few km away. The beach is a few km down the hill, but you... More

We stayed for one night at Chris's as our farwell from Great Ocean Road. The king studio no. 8 offers undisturbed and beautiful view to the sea. The studio has a small balcony with 2 simple chairs and offers all incl. a small kitchenette, as well the bath room a washing machine which squeezes the space for the toilet. The... More

Absolutely superb views from the elevated position, but little else to merit the accomodation. Motel standard rooms are way below the luxury billing they receive. A washing machine in the shower room next to the toilet sets the ambience, with a smell that would indicate its lack of use. There are tea and coffee making facilities, a TV with DVD... More

On the way to the 12 Apostoles on the famous Ocean Road in Victoria you cannot miss Chris's Beacon Point. 6 km of climbing to reach the perfect place to stay and dine. We had the chance to book one of the new rooms with a &180° view in the middle of the trees. The accomodation is pleasant,with a confortable... More

My partner booked two nights at Chris's in a studio king villa. A reasonably good king sized studio villa for two with a marvellous view! A self-contained villa with basic features but it is not worth AUD330 a night. You do pay for the great view of Bass Strait so thanks to my partner for organising this surprised coastal getaway...

We stayed at Chris's between Christmas and New Year and the serenity of the location is fabulous. While Apollo Bay and Lorne were teeming with people, this was a little oasis with stunning views of the ocean. The location in relation to visiting the Great Ocean Road attractions and the national park is very central. The restaurant food was good... More

Stayed for 3 night with breakfast had dinner 2 nights. The staff are great. The food is well above average but I would not call it amazing. The rooms could do with a little makeover, especially time to get rid of those wall-to-wall carpets. And I hate to say it, but the beds and pillows are rock hard, not exactly... More
