“Fantastic - quiet, comfortable and close to everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2010

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Mind you, we were probably in the best room - Room 4 - tucked away in the far corner of the complex! Good service, good rates, comfortable and clean accommodation. Highly recommended!

This is a great motel, the location is right in the heart of apollo bay, there aren't any views but you don't expect it from a motel. The motel has a medium sized nice pool. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The room was large and clean with tea and coffee facilities, a fridge as well as some crockery and a toaster. The TV had the movie channels. The bathroom was large, a little tired but served its purpose.

I can't say much more, if you want a resonably priced place to stay in apollo bay then stay here. I would definately stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

We have stayed at this Hotel several times over the last fourteen years and it continues to improve. Having spent over two weeks touring Victoria and South Australia this Hotel was the best that we stayed at.The staff went out of their way to ensure our visit was as good as it could be. It was absolutely value for money.

We were in Apollo Bay for our Sons 100 Kilometer Mountain Bike competition (Otway Odyssey). Rooms were hard to get in the town and we fluked a room at this motel. It is very typical of what you find in Australia. A good quality motel owned and operated by people that are friendly and do care about patrons. The room was large and offered all the usual amenities. The front door was warped so very difficult to close; the window was not going to close despite my efforts. It was hot (34oC) and the air conditioning worked well. After a pleasant dinner at the Pub next door we slept well on a good firm bed and got up at 5am for the start of the competition. The bathroom was clean and the shower was very good - more often than I care to remember this is a major failing in Aussie motels (but not at the Comfort Inn). We would probably return.

Forifwe a place to lay our heads for a night we could not have found a better place. Not only was the location first class, the hotel was absolutley fantastic. The staff were very pleasent on booking in/out and very helpfull with the information we needed. As the ratings already given are excellent there is not much left to say eccept it was a shame we unable to stay longer.

We were impressed as soon as we arrived because the hotel management had thought of everything we might want or need. From utensials in the kitchen area to a list of local eateries with comments and price comparisons. We found the room very well equipped and beautifully furnished. Everythibg worked which is nor always the case these days.

We stayed here for three nights and found everything about the place fantastic. The location is directly across the road from a park and the beach and next door to the shops. Great for a young family because we could walk everywhere.

We used the pool and BBQ area which was easy and convenient because we could just scoot the kids back to the room to get changed after a swim.

The family room was great - upstairs were two singles where our older children slept. There was an Xbox which they used when the weather was not pleasant enough for the beach. They were able to play up there while the baby slept downstairs.

Large flatscreen TV and DVD, iPod dock, wireless internet - all modern and welcome additions.

Nice sofa area with little ottomans for the kids to sit on made eating brekkie a breeze.

The management were unbelievably courteous and obliging. I was actually a little surprised by how out of their way they went to accommodate people's needs. When we were finalising our bill, someone staying there had trouble with his laptop connecting to the connection, so the managers offered for him to sit in reception and when he said the chair was a little awkward they invited him to sit at their dining table in their private residence! I thought that was beyond obliging!

I think this is a great place to stay and will certainly be back.
