Arrived in Apollo Bay not having booked any accommodation. Came across this excellent motel which had recently been renovated and refurbished. Just needed a double room, but host let us have family room at same price. The room was very clean and comfortable with great shower and kitchen facilities. It was so good we stayed for 2 nights. The location... More

My wife & I were driving the great ocean road, we didn't want to be rushed & just stopped when we found somewhere interesting, we would just pop in & book accommodation through the visitor information centres, who were very helpful & generally got us a better price than on line. We chose this motel as it was walking distance... More

We stayed our precious night at the waterfront motor in which was great. However as they were fully booked for the next night we had to go searching. We quickly found out that there wasn't much left in town for the jig we wanted to stay. We quickly grabbed a room here, not so much concernede with the cost but... More

The motel rooms have been newly renovated and are clean and comfortable. Two lovely leather chairs to relax in next to the coffee table. Block out blinds made it easy to get a good nights sleep in the queen size double bed. The shower was over the spa bath so you have to step in and out carefully. Nice little... More

Recently renovated rooms. Much better than you would expect from a motel. Staff are very friendly and helpful. We stayed over the Christmas period so we paid a bit more than would usually be reasonably for a hotel of this caliber. Having said that I would definitely recommend it and stay again. If you can travel outside of the Christmas... More

I don't really care for motels but this one is quite nice. Our room (#3) seemed to be newly redone and was clean. The bed was fairly comfortable and the pillows adequate. The free internet worked quite well. There is assigned parking for guests which means your vehicle is right outside your door. The motel is across the street from... More

We stayed here for two nights and was pleasantly surprised by how quiet, clean large the place was. It had everything we needed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The beach is across the road, the local supermarket is less than 5 minutes walk. The room and facilities were clean, spacious and much larger than what the photos provide.... More

The chap on reception was friendly chatty and informative about the area. It is close to the town and a short walk to restaurants etc. Stayed just the one night but it was... More
