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.

This property is a great location for taking day trips along and around the Great Ocean Road. The view is beautiful from the mountainside villas. Our 2 bedroom villa with living room and kitchen were perfect for our family. Breakfast included was sufficient, and other options were available if needed. We had heard the dinner was great in the restaurant,... More

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
