3 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Stayed at dolphins for 2 nights with my family and upgraded to their penthouse when we arrived as the view for seaview wasnt that fantastic. walking distance to supermarket was a plus. The apartment was clean & tidy except for their kitchen & laundry. The pots, pans, washer and dryer were superb dirty.

Modern, well appointed and centrally located apartments. Fantastic for families- across the road from beach, short stroll to restaurants & shops. Excellent stop for travels along the Great Ocean Road.

The manager (Michael) from the minute we arrived until we left made every effort to ensure we had a memorable and enjoyable stay. A huge (full of great amenities) penthouse apartment at the equivalent to a small CBD hotel room price. Has a great balcony looking over the ocean and is a stones throw to Apollo Bays impressive beachside shopping... More

Great apartment, comfy beds, fully equipped kitchen. Only downside was in lounge only one sofa so all quest couldn't relax at same time. Good location to shops and beach. Poor signal to tv in bedroom.

We had a room on the top floor, which provided a lovely view of the ocean and the pier (over the top of the Caltex service station!). The apartment was extremely comfortable and spacious, although I thought the rule to ensure all dishes were washed and put away, and all rubbish to be removed from the room, were a little... More

Well located being just a very short walk to the Main Street and all restaurants plus the beach. Very friendly managers who make you feel welcome. Only things I thought let it down were old mats in lounge room, I thought the spa bath in the main bedroom was pretty old fashioned and the WiFi connection was not great. But... More

New, modern and clean, great views, very relaxing, great for a family of four. All shops and facilities within walking distance. All the mod and cons at the press of a button, highly recommended for a relaxing evening after a day of sightseeing on the road.
