This is our second stay at Dolphin Apartments. Once again we had a great time, made even better by the high level of accommodation in the Seaview apartment. Extremely roomy and well equipped modern apartment. Must try the Penthouse next time. Thanks to the new owner, Michael.

Following other TripAdvisor reviews we booked a Penthouse Apartment for 2 nights as we were with a couple from the UK and wanted them to have a good experience while staying on the Great Ocean Road. Apollo Bay is a perfect stopping point being midway between Melbourne and the Port Campbell National Park where the main attractions are. We were... More

We had a sea view apartment and were on the far end which was nice for privacy. Heaps of room and heard no noise from neighbouring apartments. Perfect location - walking distance to the shops & cafes. The staff were friendly. Would love to come back and stay with a group in the Summer! The only fault was the bed... More

Hi StephLonergan, Thank you for taking the time to post your review. I am also a fan of the end apartments as they offer a lovely view of the bay. Thank you for mentioning the status of the beds, we will endeavour to place enough coverage over the mattresses to minimise the noticeability. Thank you once again for your positive... More

Dolphin Apartments is a good place to stay with convenient location, ample car parking. Apartment is clean and well equipped. Services were friendly and no hassle. Definitely would stay again if next time return to Great Ocean Road.

Stayed for 2 nights in a beach level apartment. The apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped. Next time would opt for a sea view apartment though. The apartment is close to the beach and all amenities in Apollo Bay. Service was friendly and efficient. Location was great for exploring the Otway National Park, Otway Fly and Twelve Apostles.

Everything there at The Dolphin was excellent. Bravo for Michael and Emily, he is very helpful and friendly. He helped my kids to transfer all data from the camera into flesh-disk using his private laptop, otherwise we could not get thousand pictures from the Twelve Apostles the next day.
