We found the coastal motel here on tripadvisor and decided to give it a go. We arrived and were shown to one of their mezzanine rooms to sleep our family of 5. The room was immaculate and had clearly just been refurbished. We couldn't fault the room at all. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our kids loved being 'on the... More

We stayed for a night during off-peak season and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. The location was right along the road running parallel to the beach, and you can hear the waves from the motel. Perhaps request a room closer to the front of the motel if you'd like to be close to the ocean. Our host was down to earth, friendly,... More

We stayed for one night having driven part of the Great Ocean Road. It was clean, comfortable and excellent location. Easy walk to shops and restaurants and across the road from the main beach. Heating/cooling, clean kitchenette. No luxury extras but good value.Would stay again!

This place ticked all our boxes...very good value for $90 at this time of year...very clean and well cared for facilities..a few minutes walk to shops and across the road to the beach....and run by a family that could not have been more helpful. We have been happy here.

We expect to pay more for accommodation during peak periods but we stayed at the Coastal Motel in early January and we were disappointed. It was way overpriced for what we got. The new owners were welcoming. The family mezzanine room was VERY dated, and needed freshening. (The first thing we saw were the ashtrays that adorn the entrances to... More

After a long drive from Torquay along the Great Ocean Road, we were recommended to stay at Apollo Bay & found the Coastal Motel on the coast line. Great location, friendly staff, family owned and refreshing décor to the rooms at a reasonable price. Within walking distance to the local shops and restaurants. Great relaxing atmosphere and quiet environment. Would... More
