The proprietors and staff are super duper generous with their warm smiles and are always ready to assist with travel information in the area et cetera. Both trips I stayed 2 nights each, with different family members and on both trips within 10 months, we could only come to one very simple conclusion: MUST COME BACK AGAIN!

Great place and great people, I will not ask for more. THANK YOU!!!

Room Tip: I have stayed in both the rooms and apartments and they are both fantastic. If you enjoy the sea an...

Thanks for your fantastic review and we hope we welcome you again to the Waterfront and our lovely area. There are so many varied attractions to enjoy in and around Apollo Bay that it's easy to fill several days with sight-seeing. We're glad you had such a great time with your family on both occasions.

Our stay at Waterfront Motor Inn exceeded our expectations, you cannot fault the service that is offered very friendly helpful staff ready to answer all questions asked, the locatation is perfect well signed & easy access to your room. The photos on the internet don't do the rooms justice - the room we stayed in offered exceptional views as promised in the description on the internet and it was one of the cleanest motels I have ever seen. We will definatly be back to stay at waterfront when we visit the great ocean road again.

Waterfront almost does what it says on the label,it would be on the waterfront if it was not for the Great Ocean Road next to which it is located. Small but efficent reception, Good size room with all you need, very clean, supurb bathroom, easy chairs and free wifi. Our room had a small patio area outside overlooking the ocean and sadly the road, but it was nice to eat out in the sun and in the evening enjoy a glass or two and watch the sun go down.Shops, Bars and Eating are just a few steps away.Highly recommended.

Thanks so much for your top review. It's great to know you found our location convenient for Apollo Bay's many attractions and you enjoyed the evening skies over the ocean. The Great Ocean Road hugs the coast almost all the way along. It's not easy to find places to stay on the sea-side of the Road, so we're glad you were happy to highly recommend us.

We stayed 2 nights and the apartment was cleaned and towel changed. Very helpful receptionist. Offered us an umbrella during our stay as it was raining the whole 2 days.
eventhough our apartment is not facing the sea, the garden view is just as good. However, internet signal is week as we are not close to the reception.

HI Azlinavc, thanks so much for giving us a 5/5 review - so glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the rain!! Its great to see people get out and about despite the weather though. I think we've finally got our WiFi sorted - the layout of the Motor Inn makes strong coverage really difficult - I hope this didn't cause too much inconvenience. Thanks for staying with us.

We stayed at the Waterfront Motor Inn for two nights on our trip along the Great Ocean Road. Great location, close to shops, restaurants and the beach is just across the road. Very clean, comfortable and very friendly and helpful staff. Free WiFi was a bonus. Would definitely recommend for your stay in Apollo Bay.

We were travelling the Great Ocean Road for mine and my wifes 40th Wedding Anniversay with our friends. On arrival what a great greeting we received by the owner of the motel Deb and I had not told her about our anniversay either. We were there for 2 nights and what a wonderful and clean motel to stay at. Close to the shops, beach and rally everything. Even just like the extras of fresh milk and biscuits. Deb even took the time to explain the area to us and sightseeing options. I stay in a lot of motels and I can tell you this is one of the best. Value plus with lovely hosts and a spotless Motel. Nothing out of place. Thank you Deb and your receptionist for making our stay one to remember.

Room Tip: We stayed in the rooms on the south side.
