A quick stop over for some dinner on our way back to Melbourne. Iluka offers casual restaurant dining and motel accommodation. They also cater for large tour groups. When we arrived, the dining room was completely packed and there was a queue for the pizza takeaway. We have pre-ordered so our food arrived quite quickly. I orderd a lamb souvaki... More

They were able to check as to whether their fresh made Gluten free pizza bases were also egg free. The Gluten Free Hawaiian pizza (with no Cheese) had plenty of pineapple and was delicious. We also ordered Fish & Chips which were also delicious.

Please avoid, rooms are broken with dodgy repairs. I could list the unacceptable defects but there are to many. Dont be fooled.. The positive reviews are related to the restaurant. Restaurant staff were load and smoking which we could smell. To after 12. Then 3 garbage trucks woke us at 5.30am. Left feeling ripped off. To save others from this... More

We often drive down here for a coffee and an afternoon walk in the sea breeze on a hot day. It is busy between 11:30 and 2 with tour busses. If you avoid these time a good place with lovely friendly staff who are eager to serve real coffee made by a genuine Italian.

Very busy and the place that the cheap tour busses all seem to stop at. Cheap is the word but you do get a decent feed for the price in a town that likes to be very expensive. But be prepared for the crowds - maybe this also says it all.

The food we ordered was filling and delicious and just the thing for a lunch stop over half way along the Great Ocean Road. The restaurant is seriously in need of a make over and looks tired and worn out.

We stopped here on our great ocean road tour with Outback Billy and Be Leaf Tours. I thought the food was fresh and the service was good. They did a nice job taking care of a big group. The prices were reasonable. Their coffee, a flat white, was awesome! I would visit again.

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
