“Upstairs Downstairs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

We stayed in a two storey family suite with our three teenage boys. They all got their own bed (no trundles!) and an X box and free Wifi so bonus points there. Plus hot chocolate and bikkies. :) Also we appreciated a laundry room with free machines and washing powder. Motel was good location and lots of eating choices and great coffee within a stone's throw. Our room was clean and neat and car just outside the door made packing up easy. Pool looked nice but too cold during our stay - instead we all bought souveneir $20 jumpers!! ONLY complaint was the wooden staircases to upstairs means you hear the thump thump of your neighbours going up and down to their bedrooms. We told our boys to tip toe but others are not as considerate!

It's difficult to tick all the boxes for family accommodation, so it's pleasing to see we met your family's needs. The polished timber stairs are a feature of these rooms and we haven't seen a comment about noise since we took that path about 5 years ago. It will be something to watch as we consider our next upgrade. Thanks for the review and alerting us on the stairs.

Don't expect 5 star and you won't be disappointed! This hotel is nothing fancy and pretty dated, but our unit was clean and that's really all we hoped for. We were there in late November--off season--so we got a good rate. Close walk to beach, shops, and restaurants.

Value for money and spotlessly clean rooms are constant goals for us. Not sure about the 'dated' comment. All our rooms have been refurbished within the last 4 years and bathrooms have been completely renewed over the last 2 years. We have maintained a particular style formula that intends to provide a light and airy feel for a relaxing stay. Thank you for your review and we trust you enjoy the rest of your holiday.

Very well located on the Grt Ocean Rd, the hotel has big rooms, good size bathrooms, and in general is a grt place to stay. Loads of cafes and restaurants close to the hotel, there is also a bottle shop just around the corner. You can park your cars outside the rooms, its very convenient. We did have some AC issues, but nothing major.

The hotel is in the main road of the town and has big rooms located on two levels. Unfortunately they are not in front of the sea, so no special view. The staff is extremely friendly and we appreciated the freelance laundry service. Wifi connection present and free!

Our Two level family room was spacious, well equipped with fridge, microwave kettle, tv's, linen, tea towels etc and all immaculate. Although Most of the rooms overlook car park. Small pool okay for a quick cool off but not in great location (pretty much in the car park) Local restaurants and cafés were VERY disappointing; highly recommend picnics or self catering. Overall, basic but adequate!

Good to see the Family unit doing the job. Rooms opening towards the carpark is a challenge. We have concentrated on the internal spaciousness and decor to make a relaxing stay. Your disappointment with the town's cafes may be a factor of the peak season when everything is strained to the limit? We trust you enjoy the rest of your holiday in Australia.

The Great Ocean Road takes your breath away. The Comfort Inn does just that. Don't look anywhere else if you want comfortable, spacious, thoughtful and super accommodation during the long drive, we stopped, took a deep breath and felt immediately at home.
can't recommend it highly enough !

Room Tip: All spacious and have helpful extras like a Toaster to save costs ... Brilliant

Right place to have a rest during trip around GOR. Clean, comfortable. We got free of charge upgrade to SPA room with jacuzzi. Managers care about reputation of this hotel, but unfortunately they are not able to give smart advices regarding restaurants, sightseeings etc. May be difference in our age work against ) Not so expensive for Australia. Apollo Bay in the night is dead city and there are no any places with normal healthy food, it's common problem for all Australian small towns.

Thank you for such a positive review of our property. It's a shame you couldn't find the food you prefer in Apollo Bay as the choice is quite extensive.
