A very clean place, owners very kind, thoughtful, super friendly and considerate. We arrived late with a young baby, the owners didn't mind and heated our room in advance. Next day found our room neatly made. Would highly recommend this place. Thank you So much Allison and Chris. We really enjoyed our stay here.

Why would you stay any where else in Apollo Bay ????? We had a unit with a separate bedroom for the children. This was fantastic as it meant the kids could go to bed, and we (adults) could stay up, chat and plan our next days adventure. The room was very well equipped, bathroom and kitchen were spotless, and the... More

Our family with 2 teenage boys were welcome from the moment we drove in the motel driveway. Quiet location and only short walk to the beach & cafes/shops. Accommodation was very clean and perfect for a family of 4 with lots of room. Will definitely be back for another visit and will stay longer, would recommend. Suzy & Tony Buchan

We ended up in Apollo Bay without a place to stay while driving the Great Ocean Road. Fortunately, the lovely couple that runs this motel welcomed us and offered us a great solution. These lovely cosy clean rooms are all one needs after a beautiful day exploring the Great Ocean Road. Definitely not just another motel, but a place where... More

Stayed here overnight on our great ocean road drive, it's nice and clean with a wood fire and spa bath. Would highly recommend to anyone to stay here if traveling. Close to restaurants and the beach wood also provided for the fire. Good value for money.

Thanks Paul, for recommending our motel and commenting on our real wood fires. We totally agree we are ideally located in a quiet street yet still very close to the beach, shops and restaurants. The Beachcomber motel offers great facilities at a reasonable price. Kind regards Alison & Chris. More

We stayed here only for one night, but we loved it. The whole atmosphere was very nice. The room was very clean and spacious and offers more than the basic needs. The owner welcomed us very warmly and as it wasn't very busy at that time we got upgraded for free! We can just highly recommend this place! If we... More
