4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

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.

We stay 1 night in Apollo Bay, driving from Adelaide to Melbourne the great ocean road. The apartment with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen facilities and a big living room was clean, comfortable at a good price. We had every thing we needed, including a washing machine and a laundry dryer. The apartment was spacious and we enjoyed our stay.

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 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
