“Clean, spacious and close to the beach, bars and shops”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

We stayed here in March this year, an overnight stay as part of our road trip from Adelaide to Melbourne. We arrived quite late and as there were no double rooms available, we were offered a family apartment as the same price. I found the apartment to be spacious, clean, comfortable and very well equipped. We were able to park right outside the room which was great because we did not want to take all our luggage out of the car for one night.
The staff here are extremely helpful and have plenty of local information that they are happy to take the time to share. We checked out at 10.00 am, but we were able to leave our car in the hotel car park while we had breakfast and did some shopping.
The hotel is very well placed in Apollo Bay, close to the bars, restaurants, shops and the beach. It was also good value at $120 a night. There is also a small outdoor swimming pool and sun loungers.

Thank you for your positive review of the room and our service. At busy times service standards are more difficult to maintain, so this is a very pleasing aspect of your review. Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip and remember us for next time.

We have stayed at Comfort Inn Apollo bay a number of times in the past 2 years with friends and family at different times of the year. I have also recommended this place to a number of acquaintances and they have all been very happy. A very reasonably priced, very clean and good value for money accommodation - especially the family suite for 5 adults. A very convenient location, and a really nice property to spend a couple of nights or more at the great ocean road.

We stayed at this Comfort Inn in February 10-13, 2013. We had a corner room that was a fair size and clean. The only negative we had, was we couldn't get a king room and the beds were very uncomfortable. They were double beds with very uncomfortable mattresses and the head board banged everytime you moved. On the plus side the staff were very helpful, the free washer and dryer were a very nice surprise, and it is in a handy location to walk to everything.

All our rooms have queen beds, from your description we think you were in a Deluxe Suite. The beds do have timber bed heads, but that is usually a plus. The mattress is firm and that may not have been to your liking. We appreciate your positive review in spite of the bed issues.

We stayed in the apartment and it was just fantastic accommodation. We were very comfortable and everywhere was clean and tidy. The double bed is downstairs and the three singles upstairs. They loan out X-Box games for the X-box in the accommodation. The town is beautiful and the ocean very close. Definitely recommended.

Thank you for rating us so highly. xBox with games is a real winner for families; the kids upstairs with that and the adults downstairs with a movie. Hope we will see you again.

We stayed March 26 2013 for a single night in a standard room. The owner responded positively to our request for a price match and was most helpful in every way. The room was really clean and well kept and splendidly equipped. A very comfortable night!

Good to see too on going work to keep the grounds neat and tidy. This management team is at the top of its game.

Had a very comfortable stay here. Rooms are comfy and very spacious. The people who run it are very helpful, even helped me get onto wifi when having their evening meal! Wifi is free by the way. Nice pool with jacuzzi too. Restaurants are within walking distance so you can leave your car parked up. Great location for sightseeing.

The wifi is even better since we upgraded to a new system shortly after your stay. Thank you for such a positive review and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Free laundry with powder usually surprises guests.

Stayed here the first night after leaving Melbourne for the Great Ocean Road. The room was spotlessly clean and a good size. Everything worked fine and we slept well. Plenty of dining options close by. No issue with wifi or reception service.
