We had one night here and it was perfect. A friendly welcome from the host, showing us a few places to visit and where to eat. The room was very clean and had everything you needed. A nice outdoor area and plenty of seating. Just right for a shorty stay.

We had a family suite with the kids in their own room. Pretty basic, but did the job for a 2 day stopover as we explored the 12 apostles. Small pool and connected hot tub. Fairly clean, but a broken bathroom window- and a few webs and associated spiders.

We stayed overnight at this motel whilst travelling the Great Ocean Road. Although a bit basic, it was very clean, warm and comfortable and had everything you needed. Because it was a short distance from the town, it was quiet at night and the beds were very comfy. I would definitely recommend this place for a one or two night...

Very friendly hosts. Clean and comfy rooms.Good beds. The location is good, only 3 km away from the center of Apollo Bay. You can enjoy the pool (not heated) and the beautiful birds that show up every morning and evening.

The Motel was fully equipped with all the basic facilities and necessities needed. The place was just a walking distance to the township but away enough for the quiet. The front desk was very helpful in showing us places to visit. Overall, a great stay!
