Exactly what it promises - budget accommodation with the basic amenities for a night's stay. Compared to other places along the GOR, in our opinion the value simply isn't there though. Room clean and bathrooms in good condition. Management friendly. Several annoying things like having only three power points in the whole room, two of which are taken up by... More

I will confess from the outset that this motel wasn’t our first choice, we arrived in Apollo Bay just after 5pm when the Tourist Info Office had closed for the night - they had very helpfully left a list of hotels that still had vacancies when they closed. Our first stop was a Best Western who wanted almost $300 for... More

We arrived about 3.30pm, well after the advertised 1pm check in, only to find it was a takeaway food shop. No motel reception just the counter at the takeaway. After telling the lady behind the counter we were checking into the motel, she told us they were on their break and she would help us soon. After10mins standing there we... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 1 night during our trip on the Great Ocean Road. The room was very spacious, had a fridge which was very useful and the bathroom was also a nice size with a good shower. There was plenty of free parking around the back of the motel. The motel is attached to a restaurant... More

I visited the restaurant (didn't stay at the hotel) during the tour to Great Ocean road. The food is decent. The Coffee shop next to it is excellent. Ambiance and service is good. Restaurant facilities for traveler's is good.

Made a last minute booking as nearly everything else was booked out. After reading the reviews was dreading it - but it was quite nice. Clean, parking available at the back with a separate entrance. Room was spacious, bed comfortable. The pillows were very thin though. The bathroom was clean and functional but very dated decor. There was no TV... More

Second time we have stayed here. The first time I got stuck in the bathroom because the sliding door jammed. Water luke warm. We gave them another chance, however, this time there was no hot water and no one on site, no after hours contact phone number or current email to advise them. Next morning we were offered free breakfast... More

Stayed here for one night over Christmas period. Last room left in Apollo Bay and I can see why. Advertised as budget hotel, we paid $270 for one night - hardly budget. The room although tidy was outdated. There were holes in the ceiling and various smudges up the walls. Water in the shower was luke warm at best. Advertised... More

Stayed here looking for somewhere cheap and cheerful. Instead we got cheap and nasty. Was relatively clean but so noisy. Bed was hard as a rock, tv and air con didn't work and the fan sounded like it was about to take off! Overall a good location but pay a little bit extra and go somewhere else!

No wifi and TV reception/noisy airco from the building next door. Back door was not locked. So the corridors with access to the rooms was open all night for everyone. Location was ok. Bed was ok. 150eur per night is not worth it.
