Excellent and understanding host (James). He was very patient explaining to us where to visit as it was raining the 2 days we were there. Easy to find the motel and it is just along the road from Apollo Bay to Port Campbell. Very clean and spacious room/suite. Well laid out and amenities were tip top. Peaceful atmosphere with its...

Although we booked through agent, James, the manager waived the infant fee for my baby whom was more than 1 year old. My husband likes the room very much, simple and modern design. Foxtel in our room was not working but the host (we forgot to ask for his name) was very helpful, trying to solve the problem and in... More

You really are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing places to shoreside in and around Apollo Bay. But my partner and I chose Motel Marengo for its great value. For a motel, the room was clean and beautifully presented. The motel owner is genuine, friendly and takes true pride in his business. He made our experience here unique,... More

This is a small motel, but everything was just perfect. The rooms are good equipped, the staff was very friendly and the location is excellent to allow a rest when travelling along the Great Ocean Road. The beds have electric blankets, which the kids loved (we were there in the winter time).

We enjoyed our stay here. The staff are absolutely lovely and do go out of their way to help you. We got some good advice about nearby attractions. Cosy and comfortable place. Close to restaurants but not in the busy area.

A couple minutes drive from the restaurants of Apollo Bay, this is a perfect little bargain. We booked a queen bed and were surprised with two additional singles. Super clean, comfy, free wifi (although it wasn't the greatest), free Foxtel, hot showers with great water pressure and lovely staff it's really a no-brainer. We would definitely stay there again and... More

Nice place to stay with family. Very quite and lots of comfort with wifi connection which really works under normal speed( won't say excellent!!) If planning to travel for 12 apostles this motel is 1.5 hours away. So either make a trip to 12 apostles and stay over night or make a over night stay and then make a trip... More
