Well recommended, ideally situated to the GOR, full services in town, excellent care with the small touches. Beautiful views to the ocean, very welcoming, friendly atmosphere and very comfortable during our two night stay. Would revisit again when in the area.

We chose Apollo Bay guest house for our 2 day Great Ocean Road tour. We wanted a quality B&B with the 'X' factor and we were not disappointed. The residence is stunning both inside and out, and the proprietors Marie and Vin were charming (and cook a great breakfast too). The bedrooms in the main house aren't huge, but do... More

A very lovely place ideally located in Apollo bay offering fantastic ocean views. Everything is in French style, just very beautiful, neat and clean. We had a very pleasant stay and would definitely come back. If you'd like some more privacy, book their studio/suite.

The house is warm and inviting. The furnishings are all french and the overall finish is charming. The rooms come with all the extras. Marie makes you feel very welcome and the breakfast was generous. Would highly recommend as a great place to stay.

This is a beautifully built guest house. Marie, the hostess, has wonderful taste. It is the best B & B we have stayed in across five different continents. If you are planning a Great Ocean Road visit, we would strongly suggest you try book in here as part of your trip. Enjoy.

We had the continental breakfast which was plentiful and we even bought some of the homemade granola to take home. Our hosts were wonderful , gave us... More

My husband arranged for us to stay one night for our one year wedding anniversary. It was absolutely gorgeous - the view from the room was incredible, the hosts were just fantastic and the actual Guest House itself is gorgeous. It was a little oasis away from the world. Everything is thought of with lovely touches such as the home... More

My wife and I stayed here one night in mid-February as we traveled the Great Ocean Road. It is tucked away a few blocks outside the town center. It is well-landscaped and beautifully decorated --- nice rooms that open up to the ocean 50 yards from the house. Maree is a very friendly host and cooked excellent breakfasts. Would highly... More
