Location is good - restaurants are just opposite/nearby and near to Cape Otway. A good pit-stop after driving from Melbourne. Room is clean and spacious. Staff was friendly. There is a Dooley's icecream nearby and a must-try. I would say this is an average stay.

Very impressed by the way the staff made us feel very welcome and went 'way and above' what would be expected to make our stay comfortable. The rooms were immaculately clean, they turned the heaters on to pre-warm our rooms (which was great seeing it was some of the coldest weather in years - snow fell on the Otways), Bed... More

Staff were very helpful with advice on local attractions. Breakfast was nice, and they were very quick to bring coffee when we realised it hadn't been ordered.... Room was small but clean. Big price hike for the long weekend was disappointing.

Dear shimmyshake, Thank you for the feedback and those kind words. Yes, prices around Apollo Bay are higher during holiday seasons and long weekends. On the other hand there are some fantastic deals on offer during the quieter winter months. Hoping to see you again sometime. Regards, David & Robyn Owners More

Iwas just for a night, but at this time in late March the last Hotel i could get. which made me curious what i might find. Its a lovely motor Inn, with good equipped rooms, and a nice friendly staff. The price is Apollo Bay price, nothing much you can do about if you need to stay.

Great location, clean, spacious room, but the best thing was the staff - v friendly, knowledgeable and nothing was too much trouble. Pointed us in the direction of a great restaurant and a great unknown tourist stop. Will definitely stay here again, thank you.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Motel is very well positioned and maintained. We were given a free upgrade on arrival to a 1 Bedroom apartment and the accommodation was very comfortable. Only draw back is the position of the swimming pool which is located in the middle of the parking area and is not very private.

Dear ongieox, Thank you for your detailed feedback. There are many choices for 'eating out' in Apollo Bay, and only a short walk from our property. Many travellers who choose to stay in the self contained apartments still choose to 'eat out'! I am glad our laundry facilities and free WiFi helped to enjoy your stay. Kind regards Robyn More
