Captain's At The Bay
Ranked #1 of 20 Apollo Bay B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 12, 2013

We had had a long drive from Mount Gambier and by the time we reached Apollo Bay we were really tired. It was so nice to pull into Captains at the Bay. We had booked the Captains Cottage with parking right outside the front door. Very comfortable room - bed was excellent and the bathroom features good. Had a great nights sleep and next morning the breakfast was first class. Home cooked and delicious. A great stop over.

Stayed: October 2013, traveled as a couple

Wonderful place to stay. The warm welcome we received was just beautiful, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We were coming from another hotel in the same area that didn't have room for us to stay so Captain's at the Bay made sure our transition was seamless, making sure our room was organised and ready early. The rooms are spacious and modern, so clean and comfortable it's almost like being at home. The bathroom was huge and the soft, luxurious Sheriden towels were a wonderful touch. Every effort has been made by the owners and staff to make sure that the rooms are just perfect. Brekky was lovely and the dining room is gorgeous - again, so clean and modern. There was also a couple of computers with Internet access, no charge, available for guests to use which was wonderful for a quick check of emails and planning the next leg of our trip. If you are doing the Great Ocean Road, definitely stop in Apollo Bay and Captains At The Bay. The area has so much to offer and this hotel is definitely somewhere you will be happy to stay, sit back and relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. Oh, and it's so reasonably priced, you can afford to stay a couple of nights!

Room Tip: I think almost any room here will give you a great stay.

Just loved this place, in fact it was our favourite on the GOR. Everything from the warm welcome, lovely comfortable room, great location, decent brekky and wine was faultless.

To top it off, I accidently took their keys and left mine there, and someone was decent enough to drive to where I was staying in St Kilda to do a key swap with me.

Can't wait to return!!

Had a wonderful stay here, a nice romantic room! Everything was spotless, no complaints at all. Would definately recommend. Only thing was loud banging doors as everyone else opened and closed their doors but I think this was due to a large family group sharing our wing hence lots of moving about between rooms!

We stayed here in April and we were in the bridge room for two nights. What a lovely room, bath in the main room for a romantic touch lovely clean bathroom and large verandah overlooking the ocean.
Breaks basic but very friendly staff.

We stayed in a terrace room for two nights and could not fault anything. The room was excellent very good size and comfortable. Service was very good and the breakfast fantastic. Would recommend this as a base for exploring great ocean road attractions.

Recently stayed here in the Bridge room, beautifully decorated and the bath in the bedroom added a touch of luxury. Friendly welcome and ideal for a short getaway for couples exploring the Great Ocean road.

Room Tip: Worth staying in the Bridge rooms beautiful view over the coast from the balcony and luxurious room.
