Motel style Hotel. You can park in front of your door. Has Laundry available, 1 Dollar for a wash and 1 for the dryer. Very close to beach, friendly staff, all clean. We could check in prior to official check in time as room was free. Mini bar is stuffed as well with good wine and nice beer. Opposite of...

Dear Hermann B, Great to hear that you spent 4 days in Apollo Bay. So many guests only stay 1 day, when there is so much to do and enjoy in the area. I'm glad our facilities both on-site, and within the immediate surrounds of our property suited your extended stay. Thank you for the great feedback! We look forward...

Although an older style motel the service was five star. The location is excellent and once there you can walk to the beach in minutes. We stayed with one teannager and she had plenty of data to use as well. The beds were extremely comfortable and the ability to do the washing was an advantage to the extended traveller.

We stayed here as a group of 5 adults. Didn't think we would have to book in advance and this was about the only place we could find on short notice. The apartments are fine and would be perfect for a family but just a bit too cosy for 5 adults. One room with a double bed and another with...

This is a very ordinary motel. We were asked to pay $170 for a one night stay! When I looked shocked the manager said the large fee was because it was remote. The cost was for a double standard room. Instead of staying in town and spending money on dinner, wine and motel we drove back to Melb. The room...

We spent 2 nights here. It is central to everything. The room was clean. However it would be the smallest room I have ever stayed or seen. It had a king bed which we wanted but that was pretty much it. It was tight all round. The shower was big but the ensuite again small. A little to squishy for...

Bed comfortable, breakfast ... massive! We had a bowl of fruit each, which was a meal in itself - and then a cooked breakfast which was equally massive. Full marks to David and Robyn who arranged to deliver the fruit early, while the cooked meal was being prepared, so it wouldn't be cold by the time we got to it....

We had a night here on our trip along Great Ocean Road. The owners were very friendly, the bed was super comfy and they stock locally brewed beer, Prickly Moses, in the mini bar that was very tasty. The room was quiet and it's just around the corner from the main street.

We have also replaced the stock in the mini bar of each room to include local beers, ciders and boutique vineyard Victorian wines. I am so glad you enjoyed them! kindest regards Robyn (Owner / Operator)
