Newly renovated our room looked brand new with large room size, excellent kitchen facilities with everything we needed. Friendly staff and convenient location walking distance from restaurants, local pub and water. Best shower (good pressure) we had access to on the great ocean road.

What a great place to stay! The room was very clean, the bed comfortable and the owners extra nice and friendly. What more can you ask for? To top it up, the owners helped me to find my way around Apollo Bay; directed me to the nears restaurants and shops. Overall, It was a pleasant and relaxing stay. I am... More

I booked the hotel for the price. I was very impressed with the modern, clean, marble bench tops in kitchen and bathroom with stylish leather seats and trendy bed covers. I have worked in five star hotels and the Coastal Motel was equivalent in cleanliness and décor and very impressed after a long drive to arrive with a pleasant surprise... More

A really comfortable room with great decor and layout. I stayed in a standard room and was really surprised at how good the room was, especially compared with other motels I'd stayed in recently at much higher tariffs. Nice bathroon which is very cleam looking. Little kitchenette and all very modern and new throughout. I found this place on booking... More

Not 5 star but very pleasant, reasonably modern, very clean, functional and in a great location in the middle of the town. The owner was lovely. I go to Apollo Bay every year and this has been my favourite place so far.

Two nights in a room with plenty of space to move around, comfortable warm bed, large TV, free wi-fi, kitchenette, motel fronts Great Ocean Road, with rooms behind. As it was during the week, there seemed to be no noticeable traffic noise, just the soothing sound of the tide coming in and going out.

Stayed 2 nights last week. The room was terrific, very clean and spacious for our family of three adults. The location was ideal, right across the road from the beach and right at the town centre so could walk to get dinner and shopping. The owners were terrific, very helpful with information and lovely to speak with. Would love to... More

We stayed here for great ocean road marathon for its convenient location. The room was clean and the wifi worked well. Unfortunately the customer service... Or lack thereof... Spoiled it. The manager was difficult to deal with and quite condescending in his approach. I would Definately not stay here again.
