“Good cheap motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

My mate and I stayed at the Beachcomber one night while doing a motorbike tour of the Great Ocean Road. We picked a cheap twin bed room.
The price was good, the room was small and basic but clean and had everything we needed. The beds were comfortable. The room had AC, TV, shower and toilet.
If you are on a budget and want a basic clean room this is for you.

Room Tip: If you just want a clean comfortable bed for the night then pick the buget priced room

we eneded up here on our 2nd night stay in apollo bay after we had decided to extend our stay in apollo bay (1 nights stays just wasnt long enough). we choose this hotel based on its review and rating. the hotel itself was nice and clean but the paper thin walls meant for a really bad night sleep. the guy next door was snoring all night and we could hear everything. if the wals were made thicker this hotel would be pretty decent.

Room Tip: try to get a room on the end. at least that was you can only get disturbed by 1 room, not 2 rooms ei...

I stayed solo at the Beachcomber Motel for one night while on a road trip to the 12 Apostles. It was the perfect rest stop between two full days of driving and offered precisely what I needed. The rooms were super clean, the staff at the desk were lovely and I had a great night's sleep. Only complaint is that the walls are a bit thin so I might not have chosen this one for a romantic getaway, but for the solo traveler it's perfect.

we have spent two nights in a spa/woodfire studio apartment and was very happy with the room, it looks as good as it does in all the pics, only 2 blocks behind main street so a few mins walk to everything was very handy, room had everything we needed, even everything we needed to cook our own breakfast.. spa in the room whilst watching the tv was a nice touch and enjoyable :) good sized room and bathroom cant really fault the place, will be coming back and staying next time we are in town for sure.

Room Tip: my tip would be to get a spa/studio room if you can afford makes for a nice stay

We stayed at Beachcomber Motel and Apartments in Apollo Bay for 5 nights from Thursday through to Tuesday. Very comfortable and pleasant, very clean and presentable. Kitchen contained everything we needed for our stay ie. crockery, cutlery etc. Was a 5 minute walk to the town centre and beach where the main cafe/restaurants are located, and the motel was located in a quiet street away from the hustle and bustle. The owners were very friendly, helpful and informative about the region and providing us with ideas on things to do on our travels.

Thanks Chris and Alison for making our stay enjoyable! :)

Stayed in a budget room. Very small and basic but was clean. Toaster, crockery and cutlery provided. Check in process was friendly.

Unable to sleep due to noise from neighbouring rooms. Could not wait to leave. Disappointing finale to a day out on the Great Ocean Road.
