From checkin to checkout the staff were polite & friendly.... but we did only stay overnight... Room was nicely laid out, good size kitchen, and a modern bathroom... I may be wrong, but it appeared to have recently been refurbished.... Positioning in Apollo Bay is great, with dining nearby, and also close to other facilities.

This was a nice unit, that had loads of room and good kitchenette. It is near a supermarket and close to the beach and information centre. There was a strange smell in the bathroom coming from the drains I think, so we had to ensure the door was kept closed. Also had ants, ok this happens but it was cold... More

After a long drive down the GOR from Melbourne, this was a nice place to spend the night. We had a very nice room that was quiet and peaceful, even though it was full. The staff was friendly as well on check-in and check-out. The room was very clean and decently large. It had 2 nice chairs to sit at... More

Myself and 4 female friends needed somewhere to stay the night before starting and the night after completing the Great Ocean Walk. We couldn't have been happier with this motel. The rooms had recently been renovated. They were spacious, clean and much to our surprise had a small but fully equipped kitchen too. This came in handy when we needed... More

Rooms were clean and tidy, we had a spa room and it was worth the extra few $$ The check in and out process were very easy, name = key and the same in reverse.

WOW, not what we expected when we opened the door. Extra large room, massive bed, great kitchenette & big bathroom with a spa. More than enough space to lounge around in if you chose to stay in. Clean, modern, fresh & very reasonably priced, especially considering it was a long weekend. Staff were helpful & friendly. Situated on the main... More

Good location. Near the beach front rows of shops, cafe and restaurants. The beach just a short walk across the road. Room is simple and clean. Parking is just outside of the single storey rooms. Rooms are limited in quantity as the motel occupys a narrow strip of land. But room is spacious, comes with kitchen area and siting area.
