This is a lovely motel with friendly owner / operators welcoming you on arrival. The rooms are very clean with plenty of room. The facilities are great with quality complimentary toiletries. The location is very quiet and peaceful so great for a good night's sleep. I would definitely recommend while on your Great Ocean Road adventure.

The motel was very nice. It was clean, comfortable and modern. The staff were very nice and friendly. The lovely spa was an added treat. Good spot to stay when visiting Apollo Bay or as a stop on the Great Ocean Road. Free wifi. Enjoyed all the colourful birds that are there and that the motel owners feed. There is... More

Booked a 2-night stay online through an agent - decided to stay here due to their good online reviews and affordable pricing. The location was very convenient, only a minute's drive from Apollo Bay's town centre and so near the beach. Because the place is so small (few rooms), it felt private and was so peaceful and lovely. Check-in was... More

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights over the Easter period. The motel was similar to what we would expect from in the states (typical drive in motel). Nice garden area. The rooms were extremely clean and tidy. They contained everything you might need for a few nights. Bed was comfy. The wifi worked well. The only negative... More

Was just passing through, and found this motel to be very pleasant, helpful, and friendly. The room was exceptionally clean, tidy , and comfortable. And with minimal noise of a night, it afforded a very comfortable stay. My regards to the hosts.

Hello fellow travellers. My son and I decided to spend some of the school holidays on the Great Ocean Road at Apollo Bay. The motel we found online was in Marengo which was fantastic. Close enough to be local to Apollo Bay but far enough to be away from the major tourist traffic. Located right on the Great Ocean Road,... More

The motel was good value for money, $115/night compared with others at $130/140. The room/kitchen was well equiped. However compared to others it was small and dated. It lacked chairs for the dining table and had a tiny bathroom. There were no comfortable seats - basically sit on the bed. The room looked out immediately on to the car park... More

Ok, firstly I would avoid the great ocean road when it is torrential rain! However, if like us, your schedule does not let you postpone or delay your trip as the great ocean road is on your list, then this motel has you well catered for during the long dark winter days. Upon check-in we were greeted by a friendly... More
