“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2014 via mobile

We booked for 3 nights in a suite but unfortunately we were double booked the 1st night. Manager Cathy was extremely helpful and put us in the room next door to the one we'd booked. It was large and clean and there was no charge plus Continental breakfast was also on the house. Cathy saved the day and always greeted us with her lovely sunny and friendly disposition. Thank you Cathy!

We had a very big room (number 7) with all the amenities; fridge with milk, jug of cold water, cupboard full of crockery and utensils etc. the window faced outwards towards the road, which is probably nicer than the rooms whose windows face the courtyard and therefore have a view of everyone’s cars parked right up to the window. The only downside to this motel was that staying there on a VERY windy night (gale-force winds direct from Antarctica I think) we had natural air-conditioning through the gap in the door and a draught from the window. Check in and out was quick and easy and very pleasant personnel. Bonus is the unlimited free wifi.

Thanks for the high score. Your description of rooms and their position off the carpark has made us concentrate on the quality of the room experience, and you note that. For an overnight stop, having the car parked close to the room is a great convenience. The southern wind does shake the whole place occasionally.

Our first night's stop on the GOR was at the Comfort Inn, Apollo Bay. Friendly welcome. We had a large corner room at the back of the hotel, with a large sitting area and a big tub and separate shower. Our room overlooked a road and parking area behind the hotel but there was very little noise from there to disturb us. There was a bit of noise from adjoining rooms, but that soon disappeared. The room was fine - clean, pretty well appointed, but nothing fancy. There is no food at the hotel but there are some restaurants locally, although they didn't seem to be much to write home about. We ended up eating a good pizza and watching the Big Bash after a long day's drive!

Looks like we met your needs, but didn't do better than that. We strive to exceed expectations, so it's disappointing when we miss that mark. Our position in the centre of Apollo Bay often brings concerns that outside noise will be an issue, but it seldom is. The rooms are large and comfortable, so it's not surprising you decided to eat in and relax with the cricket on TV.

We stayed here for one night while travelling down the Great Ocean Road. Our room was spacious, well furnished with a decent size sitting area. The bathroom was a good size with a spa bath in addition to a separate shower. It was convenient for finding places to eat. There are plenty within 10 minutes walk. Breakfast wasn't included but we could have had a continental breakfast in our room. A fridge was provided with cutlery, glasses and crockery so you could do your own thing if you wanted. None of the rooms had an ocean view but this was more than made up by the quality of the accommodation.

We are a family of 5 including a 2 yo toddler. Checked into a 2 storey family suite.

Front desk lady is very helpful and gave good tips on restaurant and places of interest worth going. My toddler even received 2 small bottles of fresh milk for his stay!

The suite and bathroom are pretty huge and it made my toddler happy. Well.. the suite furniture is a bit dated and the bed soft and wobbly (like you would expect from a motel ). But it is clean, neat and tidy. The location is excellent and convenient to nearby eateries and supermarket.

Thank you for the positive review. Our approach to furniture has been to choose quality rather than fashion, and that may sometimes bring a comment of 'dated'. For example, the three seater sofa in the Family units is from the renowned furniture maker Moran. They make sofas that are superbly comfortable and have a life of many years. We are sure you would have found the sofa extremely comfortable and spacious, but it's a contemporary classic rather than latest fashion. Your experience with the bed does not fit the standard we strive for; a firmer formula. We will follow up on that. We trust you enjoy the rest of your holiday.

Not sure how they have kept their 4 stars? Very dated and basic. Villas not child friendly- with easy access to stairs.
Great location with quick access to the pub next door and many cafés & restaurants a 5 minute walk. The beach with playground across the road.The place was kept clean and there was free wifi but overall very dated & basic.

We are disappointed that your stay was unsatisfactory. Our Family units are set up to provide a relaxing stay with modern services and bathrooms. These are the basics for a family that we strive to satisfy. Our star rating results from external audits carried out each year.

Clean and neat room. We were in a family suite so kids upstairs and us downstairs. Main issue was that the walls are paper thin, so we were able to hear the neighbours on either side thumping up and down their stairs, talking, coughing etc. so if you are a light sleeper it means being kept up at night and being woken early (depending on the sleeping habits of your neighbours).
Great location - very central, close to lots of great restaurants. Free WiFi was great and kids appreciated the XBox.

Thank you for reviewing your stay. This is only the second review to comment on stair noise from adjoining Family Units. Whatever happened here it is not due to thin walls. The property is double brick walls and plaster over that, so noise between rooms is rarely an issue. We are sorry the noise was a problem.
