Not possible to cook in the kitchen but there's a microwave, toaster and a cattle, fridge and freezer, recycling beans, table and chairs, cutlery, etc. Two blocks from... More

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

Bright spacious clean room, comfortable bed and a good shower. The motel is located right on the front so convenient for shops and cafes. It is a little expensive for what it is but I guess that is Apollo Bay.

Rooms were clean, spacious, and as advertised. Beds comfortable etc. There was a bit of a foul smell in the room and we had to open all the windows to get it out. Only stayed here one night. Service was good. My recommendation would be to search for better value in town. We left the booking late and options were... More

Pleasant greeting on arrival. Great size rooms. Comfortable bed, with good facilities. apart from the TV not accepting our USB device. Walking distance to everything in Apollo bay, including the beach. A positive experience. Locals very friendly.

We spent one night at this motel and it was good. Room was spacious and very clean, bed comfortable, had a kitchenette, but a little tired bathroom. BBQ also available in the back. Didn't had any problems with the noise from neighbors - didn't hear anything. The beach is across the main street, so it is quite fun to run... More

The location of the hotel is good. Near to the town centre,restaurants, supermarket and the visitor centre is right across the road. The room is clean. When got into the hotel at 1pm and the room was not ready and was asked to come back an hour later. You have your own parking space which is good. Free wifi is... More
