Stayed here for 2 nights wish it was more. Donald greeted us and explained everything to us. Was very clean. Had everything you need. There was great places to eat 1 or 2 blocks away. A food works and an IGA. There is a resident koala but it didn’t venture out. The weather wasn’t the best but that didn’t stop us walking along the beach paths and marina. Very pretty place. When we come back will definitely stay here again.

We were just there for the Great Ocean Road running festival and had a lovely time. Emily was very welcoming when we arrived, walking us to our room and showing us around as well as giving some good tips on what to do during our stay. We stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment. it was spacious, clean, and quiet. We didn't have to use our car once, which was handy given it was a very busy weekend in AB! Would definitely recommend.

We spent 4 nights at The Dolphin apartments for Easter, the apartments were fantastic, clean and spacious in a perfect location, a short walk across the road to the beach and shops in walking distance. We were so happy we rebooked before the end of our stay and are looking forward to returning next summer!

Apollo Bay was lovely but quite busy with tourists during the school holidays. We booked a 2 bed Seaview apartment. The apartment was modern and clean, with spacious dining and living areas. Beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well appointed.(but note that there is no coffee machine). The frying pan was in desperate need of replacement as there is no non-stick coating left on it. Washing machine and dryer worked well. The ensuite set up was odd. There was a spa bath and sink within the master bedroom but no toilet. The toilet was across the hallway next to the second bedroom without a sink. There was also a large main bathroom located next to the bedrooms. Like I said, a rather odd set up. It is worth noting that the apartment complex is located behind a petrol station. This meant we did smell petrol when our sliding doors to the balcony were open and the wind was blowing towards our apartment. It wasn’t a big deal as we simply kept the door closed. The rooftop of the petrol station also obstructed the sea views of our apartment. Wifi was excellent. We did enjoy our stay and found the apartments conveniently located to shops, cafes, restaurants and the beach. I would recommend Dolphin Apartments to others as it is very good value for what you get.

Thank you Jellytree for taking the time to review your stay with us and let others know what you enjoyed most and also some important factors to include in people's decision. We are continuously reviewing our apartments and a coffee machine is one of the items on the list. Part of the reason we do not include coffee machine's in the apartment is to encourage guests to visit the local cafe's which are only a 5 minute walk away. There is a coffee plunger in the apartment and we provide fresh milk on arrival. The apartment set up is different to most which allows a separate toilet from both bathrooms. We understand this is not to everyone's taste. It is no secret we are located behind the service station as you will see in a number of our reviews. It is very rare that we incur any petrol odours and all of the bedrooms are located at the rear of the apartments along with double glazed windows which means there is little to no noise disruption from the service station. The Penthouse apartments have fantastic views of the ocean across the top of the service station roof. Thank you again for your detailed review and recommendation. We are glad to see you enjoyed the majority of your stay. We hope to see you again in the future. Best wishes, Emily Stephens - Manager
