“Great Place, Friedly People, All around good place”
Reviewed February 9, 2013

Spent one night here. Just walked in and asked for room without a reservation. They were so friendly and service oriented. In short - this is the place to stay. Right in the heart of Apollo Bay main street - restaurants etc. The water across the road. Perfect location

Good location in a nice little town.

Accommodation is basic clean and comfortable and reasonable for price

If you've been travelling all day on the ocean road and looking forward to a swim don't get your hopes up I was looking forward to it but its the size of an ornamental pool

Thank you for your comments and positive ratings. The pool is a little small for real swimming, but good to cool off on a hot day. Hope you enjoy the rest of your vacation.

Hotel was well placed for visiting the Ocean Road. Second best bathroom on our trip. Pool was very small, but hotel right on the beach. Room was spacious with some cutlery, glasses etc. Washing facilities. BBQ by pool did not seem to be working.

Apollo Bay is a more low key place than Lorne with fair ground attractions on the beach front. We liked it, it had a certain charm to it and loved the beach.

Easy drive to Great Ottway National Park where we saw lots of koalas sleeping in the trees and even on the ground. Visit all the small bays, a bit of a walk sometimes, but not worth missing.

Thank You for your favourable comments on your stay with us. From your comments about the fair ground we guess you stayed early in January. We installed a new BBQ in December and it was in use all through the peak. May have been one of those ignition glitches? Our best advice is to always refer any issue to Reception; we are there to ensure you enjoy your stay. Hope you enjoy the rest of your holiday.

I spent one night in the most basic room the motel offered. the room was clean, spacious and looked as though it had been newly re-furbished. the bed was very comfortable, a light but sufficient breakfast of juice, toast and cereal was included in the price of the room and was delivered on-time.
the location was perfect and with off-street parking i parked my car on arrival and didn't need to use it until i left.
the staff were friendly.
The only problem we had was patchy tv reception, however this is a problem for Apollo bay rather than the hotel itself.

Thank you for rating your stay. We appreciate the compliments both for our rooms and service. Refurbishment is a continuous challenge and we aim to keep decor and fittings up to date. Fundamentals like beds and bathrooms are always a top priority. TV reception can be patchy on free to air stations, but the satellite stations should always be clear. We hope you will come back for another stay; try a Deluxe Suite next time.

This hotel has the best location in Apollo Bay as across the road from the lovely beach.. Very friendly welcome and our room was very spacious and comfortable. Stayed for one night, but would like to have stayed longer here. Would highly recommend as a stop on the Great Ocean Road.

Thanks for your review and recommendation. We have been fortunate here with the spacious rooms. It has made refurbishment easy as guests generally love space. It is probably the most frequent positive comment. Your comment on friendly service is also very much appreciated by our staff. Hope you enjoy the rest of your trip.

I've stayed in quite a few hotels around, and they are mostly internationals or 4+ stars. In a pinch, we needed to book a place fast and within a week. Also needed one that fit a tighter budget.

From the phone call to book, right through to check out - these people managing this place were among the most pleasant you could come across. Right in the middle of the main street, I first thought that it would be fairly noisy given the location - but at night it was quiet as a mouse.

The rooms were very clean, although the spa could have been given the once over for stray hairs left by previous customers. It was quiet as we liked.

Awesome place and we will be back for a few nights....

Your rating of our service is the most rewarding for our staff. Thank you. The quality of our rooms and fittings, cleanliness and the other ratings are all important, but it doesn't add up to much without great service. Hairs in the spa bath is a failure and we apologise. We look forward to your next stay with us, and hopefully a perfect score.

Only stayed here one night, but from the time we went to check in the experience was made so pleasant. The staff were so helpful through out the day. Our room was of a very good size, very clean, bathroom had everything you could need. Wifi is free, at last a hotel that understands service.
