We stayed here for two nights. As soon as we arrived the owner went and put the heater on to warm the room for us. Nothing was too much trouble. Absolutely loved the place, so spacious, comfortable and very welcoming. Loved the free wi-fi, the wood fire and the spa. Best place that we stayed on our holiday

Stayed here for one night on our Great Ocean road holiday. It's just off the main drag so it's whisper quiet. 5 minutes walk to everything in the Main Street. The room was spotless and warm which is what you want in a Victorian winter. Our hosts were friendly and very accommodating. The best place we have stayed so far... More

After a wonderful drive up The Great Ocean Road we stopped for the night at the Beachcomber at the beautiful Apollo Bay. The Owners were so friendly and made us feel so welcome. The room while basic was modern and so clean. The room looked to have been newly renovated and was within a short stroll to local restaurants. If... More

This Hotel was very basic, considering what we got for the same money elsewhere on this road trip.. It was freezing when we arrived, and so was our room!! No breakfast option and tiny bathroom.. A bit disappointing considering our exceptional accommodation the night before in Lorne at " Chatby Lane" for the exact same price!

I stayed here in December during the Christmas peak period - I paid $135 for the night. The room itself was clean and had a nice vibe about it. The bed was comfy and the room was nice and cool. The beach is a long walk/short drive away alongside the shops and restaurants. Not a bad one night stop over.

After a long day of driving on the road, me and my friend felt so welcome and comfortable in this great little motel! It was very cheap when we were comparing it to places surrounding it but we bet the rooms would have been just as nice as the places charging double. Thanks so much Beachcomber, we'll be back soon...

Like brand new room, spotlessly clean. Very helpful and nice manager, couldn't do enough for us. We got a twin room with everything we needed for $79 for the night. I haven't paid these prices for many years. Would highly recommend.

This would be our third stay at the Beachcomber Motel. Highly recommend the spa suite.... nice and light and spacious which is self-contained. The coonara wood heater makes it cosy for a winter getaway. Close to shops, eateries and of course the lovely beach! Thanks to Chris & Alison for another great stay at Beachcomber. We'll be back :)

We were travelling as a family from Malaysia. We booked a family apartment as it seemed to suit our needs and requirements very well which was to have a self-contained motel room where we could have a general seating area and a little kitchen to do some cooking and reduced the cost of eating out. The room was very clean,... More
