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 The room although tidy was outdated.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.

Booked the last available room in Apollo Bay over the Xmas weekend. Read the reviews so I didn't have high expectations. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised how clean and comfortable this budget room and in fact the whole motel facility was considering that this was peak season. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful and provided... More

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

Overall this is a budget hotel where is good for a night sleep or the most two nights. The rooms is very basic with not much decorations however all the toiletries is there for... More
