    Stayed for one night, this is a typical good standard motel. There are no eating facilities, but the motel is a five minute walk to the main shopping area, so not a problem. This is a basic good motel, no pool, no kids play area, just a very good room and friendly staff. If this is what you are looking... More

    Right in Touristland in the middle of Apollo Beach, yards from great beach and good restaurant (Vista - though pricey), its convenience is its great strength. Not luxurious but adequate and perfect for an overnight stop on Great Ocean Road.

    I have always felt that one of the great things that all Australian hotels brought to the word of travelling was the in room iron and ironing board. It was with great sadness. Then that I found that the Beachfront had decided to buck that national trend. With a an iron and board though this is an easy four out... More

    The small motel rooms have bedroom, kitchenette and ensuite. Parking is under cover outside the bedroom. Shops and restaurants are a minute away. The beach is just over the road and what a beach - a vast sweep of golden clean beach with clear blue water - what more could you want for this resort.

    We have recently spent two nights at Beachfront Motel and will not be going back again! On first impression it looks good, own car park space, little kitchenette, complimentary toiletries. Obviously it was so good that the cockroach in there liked it too. Oh and all the spiders that had left their webs everywhere. We would have complained but the... More

    This is a great spot for a stopover or even longer. We were impressed with the clean and airy room with a cooling timber interior. This would be a good value location for a few days stay at Apollo Bay with the motel a good distance from the bustle of the centre of town, though still on the main street... More

    While clearly the building is quite old, it appears to have been recently renovated. All the fittings and furniture seemed brand new and the room itself was light and clean, with air-con and electric blinds. I loved that the kitchen was its own separate room with a door to block off the fridge noise. Hearing the waves all night was... More
