“Nice stuff , Nice rooms”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2013

We stayed 1 night on our trip in the Great Ocean Road, The stuff was helpfull and nice. The rooms are big and nicely set for 2 parents and 3 children. The room is a bit like a toy house the kids upstairs in their own space. The room is big and nicely orgenized.

Our managers will be very happy to see your remarks. Our previous managers retired at the start of July after many years. The new managers come with a reputation for great service and we are seeing that already. Thank you for your review.

We found this place through Groupon. We had a night's stay in a deluxe room with continental breakfast, half price dinner next door at the Apollo Bay Hotel and two 30min massages at the Apollo Bay Day Spa. Nice reception staff, great location on main street and very quiet as the rooms are at the back of the complex. Our apartment was beautiful, clean and spacious. Huge bathroom with an awesome corner spa. Small kitchenette with tea/coffee facilities and bar fridge. Main living/bedroom area was huge and beautifully decorated. Very comfortable bed with luxurious linen. Large TV. Lovely communal outdoor area with BBQ, small pool & spa (too cold in winter for us to use it). Dinner at the Hotel next door was delicious. Mondays & Thursday nights they have a special parmigiana night. These house made chicken schnitzels are the biggest I've ever seen. Highly recommend the Day Spa massages. Friendly staff and a great way to unwind during a driving holiday. Would do it all again.

Thank you very much for such a positive review of your break with us. This winter package has been a big hit so we will certainly be running more of them. Look out for another package in August and we may see you for a second visit.

Location of the motel was good for our purposes. Easy walk to shops and restaurants. Room very large for a motel room with completely separate large area containing the bathroom (huge), perhaps a dressing area and tea and coffee-making facilities and small bar fridge. All in all plenty of room! Comfy bed. The room was very clean and well-kept. Our room was on the second storey area so we did have to carry our luggage upstairs to the room. If stairs are a problem, ensure you request a downstairs room. There appeared to be plenty of those on the property. A particular plus for our choosing this motel was that they take one night bookings which many places appear not to over a weekend especially a Long Weekend which was the period in which we stayed.

Room Tip: This property has rooms on both single storey and double storey buildings. If stairs are a problem...

Guests often find the spaciousness of our rooms a big plus. It certainly has made refurbishments and bathroom upgrades very rewarding as space is at such a premium at the beach. Thankyou for your review and we hope to see you again.

Located almost at the end of the row of shops and restaurants, but good because it's a quieter location. Rooms are very spacious - sofa corner, bed, dressing area w kitchenette (that has a kettle, glasses, cups, plates and cutlery; even a toaster!) and a Huge bathroom. Very clean. A mind-boggling of 100plus TV channels, perfect if you're stuck in the room due to heavy rain and huge winds. Also good that cars can park right outside the rooms.

Thank you for your positive review. It's always pleasing to all our staff to see guests enjoying their stay. The layout of the property has provided peace and quiet for guests while our location on Great Ocean Road means all the restaurants are within a five minute walk and the beach is directly opposite. Nice to have all that after a day of driving.

The International is located at the top end of the main street and is in walking distance to the local shops and restaurants. The actual rooms really need to be updated as they are really rather dated. We found our bed mattress to be extremely uncomfortable, the bar fridge noisy - noise continued most of the time. Had a really disruptive sleep as the room we had backed onto a rear street which made it only a matter of a metre or so from the footpath and pedestrian noise - didn't feel secure. The room itself was clean and a good size but the room rate pricey.

Thankyou for your feedback. Bar fridges usually don't disturb guests as they are in the separate meals area. As your stay was in summer the fridge may have been turned to maximum; they work harder in those circumstances and can generate more motor noise. If you encounter this again try turning the fridge to low when you go to bed. Our mattresses are provided to a formula that is towards the firm end of the spectrum. That is the style that meets most guests' needs, but that isn't universal.

Most areas larger than previously encountered. Double seat couch to watch tv good size fridge and a free washing machine and drier at central point. Very clean and felt comfortable and at home. The bed was large and form. Pillows were firm. And not super soft which do my suit those with neck problems. A lot of thought has gone into the set up and facilities offered.

Thank you for your complimentary remarks on our room and equipment. We have put a lot of thought into the design and ensuring that beds/pillows provide for a good night's sleep. We updated rooms over the last 3 years using consumer research indicating what was preferred in colours, timber finishes and bathrooms. It's always a pleasure when that effort results in satisfaction for our guests.

Upon arrival we were greeted in a very pleasant and professional manner. Our room was very clean and spacious with (wonderful) a completely separate area for the bathroom and mini kitchen. Car parking immediately outside each room. There was (oh bliss after travelling for several days) a laundry room with free use of washing machine, dryer and powder. Cafes, bars and shops were in the immediate vicinity. Would highly recommend.
