We stayed for three wonderful nights in late November. The weather was a bit cooler than we expected but we were able to take advantage of the cottage fireplace - who knew we would be having a fire at night in Australia. The accommodations (two bedroom unit) were very comfortable although one suggestion would be for more expanded seating in... More

A group of 16 of us stayed at Apollo Bay Cottages in early Sept. Overall we had a very enjoyable time, cottages were clean and well appointed and the managers, (Justin & Megan I think) were very helpful. There is a little traffic noise from the highway which is about 200mts away but it did not interrupt my sleep unduly.... More

My husband and I stayed here in May 2013 for 2 nights. The cottage was well appointed, clean, very quiet, private and had a yummy open fire to snuggle in front of each evening. A sweet place to stay if you are spending some time on the Great Ocean Road. Excellent, thank you!

The Apollo Bay Cottages proved to be the highlight of our whole trip through N.S.W. and Victoria. The cottages themselves were charming, in that they had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The kitchen was fitted out fully with all cooking needs, making it enjoyable to stay in and have home-cooked meals. A real bonus for families on... More

The Apollo Bay Cottages are great. They are spacious, clean and feel like a home away from home. The staff are friendly and helpful. The location is great if you want to spend some time along the Great Ocean Road. Much better than a hotel room.

We were on a vacation to Australia from Phoenix, Arizona and stumbled upon this great place while doing a day trip to the Twelve Apostles with friends. We booked easily the day before our trip, and were quoted a two room cottage with a double bed in one room and twin beds in the other. When we arrived we were... More

I had family from America visit and we stayed here two nights, it was a fantastic place to stay. It had everything we could have wanted or needed. We even used the fireplace on the first evening as it was a bit chilly that night. The atmosphere was beautiful, quiet and serene, the beach was, as advertised, within walking distance.... More

We stayed 4 nights over xmas and the cottage was well equipped and clean. The extensive well maintained front lawn provided guests with a playing field for various sports after a big xmas dinner and fun viewing for the onlookers. Very close to the beach and not far from town - a relaxing spot with a lovely effective fire we... More
