Iluka Motel is along the shophouses front facing towards the beach and sits above its restaurant, Iluka restaurant. It deems itself a budget accommodation with aud95-100 per night. For that price, you'll get a small ensuite room, a small window looking into the neighbour, a tv (with bad reception) and a small fridge. Iluka motel is in desperate need of... More

Advised to stop overnight at Apollo Bay, we booked a double room here after looking at several other nearby motels/inns to compare rates. Finally chose Iluka as the cheapest available place offering similar facilities as the others. We found the room clean and comfortable, with basic facilities (double... More

This review pertains to their restaurant as our group did not reside here (Thank God). It was all off to a good start. Our friends were happy with their dinner order and the food tasted generally just above average (I tasted everything)..... And my plate came along. I ordered snapper fillet which previously had always been a delicious safe choice....... More

If you are on a very tight budget, then stay here, if you can afford an additional $20-$30 a night...then go else where. Relatively speaking it wasn't cheap, $150 a night is not cheap, but being peak season and in a very beautiful place...that'e the cheapest hotel we could find. We were there during the heat wave in January...NO AIR... More

Stayed at the Iluka for one night for our trip down the Great Ocean Road. The room was very basic, but fine. The bed was extremely hard which left me with a fairly sore back ... But what can you do. Only other issue is the rooms won't very well insulated for sound either, could hear things going on in... More
