“Clean,Comfortable & Convenient”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

We stayed here for 4 nights and found it fitted our needs perfectly. A small kitchenette was sufficient for minor cooking when we didn't feel like trying out one of the many eating establishments in Apollo Bay. We were on the ground floor and had a small table and chairs outside the door in the lovely garden full of native plants that attracted many birds. The beach is a short walk away, as is the town.

Room Tip: Ground floor is good if you want to sit outside in the garden. Upstairs probably better for views...

Ok, if you are going to call yourself seaview, than at least make sure the hotel DOES actually have a really good seaview. we were left dissapointed by having what i would refer to as a sea-glimpse...although their advertising would say otherwise. I think if we had picked the 2nd floor then yes we might have had a better view. the location however was good, the bed comfy, the staff missed a few small things on their daily routine clean, but hey, i'm not expecting 5 star cleaning for a 4 star price. all in all it was fine, but rather put out by the lack of view. i probably would have given it 4 stars IF the view had of been better......

Room Tip: choose the 2nd floor as the ground floor doesnt offer very good sea views

We had a nice night in a two room apartment. It was very spacious and all equipment works well. The staff was kind showing us the best place to have dinner. We wanted to stay more time at Apollo Bay but the unfortunately we could not. We had a nice rest and with more time we would stay more there. Saludos

The lights and fixtures were broken, the blankets stained, and I found three bugs in the living room. I found it annoying that they demanded that you wash and put away the dishes; I wasn't staying at someone's house, I thought service was a part of the fee.

That aside, we had an good time. The staff were courteous, the views from the balcony were amazing. The most wonderful part - the sheets were soft and beautifully clean.

What a lovely place to stay! Clean, spacious and comfortable. A very large room with a balcony and a sea view. Not far ,5 minutes, to walk into town. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Travellers Tip

Make sure you visit the Otway Lighthouse, apart form the cake which is divine, there are loads and loads of Koalas to see in the wild.

We stayed in the first-floor "Executive Spa Apartment" with outside balcony. Well, there is no sea view straight from the room, you need to step out to the balcony for that. But I knew it when I booked the room, and anyway because we stayed 2 nights only, all day long we were out somewhere, Triple Falls, koala watching, Erskine falls in Lorne, great activities for free.
So the apartment was neat and tidy, exactly as it is shown on the picture. What you see is what you get. Kitchenette with all tools and facilities (clean up after yourself when you leave, which is evident I think, we left the place as we found it). Spa bath was fun :) although we needed some time to figure out how to switch between shower and bath (up or down) without getting water from both ways, i think that part is not working too well on the shower, hard to switch. well we didn't mention it coz we were too busy enjoying our 2 days :) but it is a minor thing anyway, the spa bath worked perfectly! put some body wash in the water, and you'll be covered by froth to the top of your head :D
The room was spacious, huge and comfortable bed. It had an electric heater under the sheet, but we didn't use it, we stayed with the reverse aircon which warmed the room up perfectly. The furniture is simple, but nice and cozy. I saw a few posts about the furniture being old, well in our apartment everything looked new. Tv, Dvd worked. The only noise was by the rain that hit at night.
It was my boyfriend's birthday then, so I rang up and asked the owners if we could arrange a cake for my man, they said yes, recommended a cake shop which they usually deal with, I chose from the cake shop's website, and told Luke and Tracey which one I want. It was so yummy!! They kept it in their fridge for me which I picked up later when it was the time for it. Also, we have received a complementary wine for the birthday :) very thoughtful of them.
We didn't order any breakfast, had our own food.
When we arrived, I came in, paid for the room and cake, we got the key, and went to find our place. When we left, I handed the key over, and that's it. Simple and easy as it is. They trust people, didn't even check our room when leaving. Well, I did my research, so I knew they would expect people to tidy up after themselves. So, if it is not on your value list, expect that you may need to pay for your leftovers.
This money was a reasonable price for this accommodation.
ah, on the feedback form I said we "maybe" return, is because I like trying new places every time when I go somewhere, just to get new experience, but you never know...
But I would definitely recommend this Executive Spa Apartment to anybody, well, we were a couple, so couples, go for it!
Thank you, Alexandra

We had a nice stay at the Seaview in a ground-floor motel room.The room was spacious, clean and well-equipped. The breakfast basket was good, including fresh juice. It's a short walk to the main street, with shops and restaurants, and to the beach. Despite the name, there is no sea view, though!
