We were really late checking in and the owner/manager tried to phone me and he left me a note with instructions, so I was both relieved and pleased. The rooms have recently been refurbished so its nice. Really comfy bed, I slept really well here. Nice rooms. My teenage daughter sat outside our room chatting with her boyfriend on the... More

We had a great stay. The staff were really great and helpful. The room we had at the front was clean and comfortable. Bathroom large. Walking distance from most things in town. Beach is a cross the road.

Inappropriate management, my three daughters were confronted by the owner at 10:30pm on our first night while having a quiet gathering by the BBQ area. A very hostile man who repeatedly asked for their room number in an aggressive manner and when they said they were not comfortable giving that information he threatened to call police and staggered off, appearing...

Approached by a man who claimed to be the manager/owner, appeared intoxicated and intimidated our 18-23 year old daughters. Rooms themselves where clean and well maintained, comfortable kitchen area with nice bathroom. Overall not impressed.

Modern, newly refurbished rooms, awesome service, great location right on the beach front at one end of town. Family loft room has a separate loft area with beds for kids so they have their own space. Well equipped kitchen space, hotel laundry, free wifi. Wish we had more than two nights here.

The rooms are clean and modern. The booking was a little bit complicated as they dont accept Amex, but the booking platform where the reservation went thru does. So they contacted me by mail they dont accept amex and I need to call them to Australia to give them my alternative credit card details, absolutely uncessary! Another lowlight: check out... More

We stayed in room 15, a deluxe king room with spa, this room was great we loved it, it was spacious and a quick walk to town. The price was good and the owners are friendly and helpful, would recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in Apollo Bay to stay here.

Our room was spacious, very nicely decorated, with a full kitchen and was much more than just a motel room, it was really a holiday apartment but at motel prices. Very good location, quiet but opposite the beach and a few minutes walk to town. Friendly management too. We were very happy with our stay.
