This motel was clean, the staff were friendly. It was modern and comfortable. It's close to town but not too noisy and walking distance to everything. Was very happy with our stay. The room was a little cramped but other than that, a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Would pick a second story room next time.

Clean and friendly. Thanks for the compliment. The "modern" word refers, we hope, to our continual striving to keep pace with new developments in hospitality. We are constantly looking for ways to enhance our guests stay

Sandpiper is immaculately clean, well equipped and close to town. Our rooms were second floor with a view of the bay. The staff was friendly and very helpful. Room delivery breakfast was an option. We would certainly recommend Sandpiper when you are in Apollo Bay.

Room Tip: Select room with ocean view , 15, 16 or 17 . Sandpiper does not have a pool or restaurant .

We try our best in areas of the motel where we have control. We can't control our guests perception of value or how firm our guests like their mattress but we can control the effort we put into keeping the room and the motel in a spotless condition. It's the minimum our guests can expect. Looking at recent reviews there is a common recognition that Sandpiper is presented in a clean condition. It's good to see our guests recognise our effort

Comfortable and clean good sized rooms with friendly staff to help you out. It was great to have a big bathroom! It is away from the fuss but easy enough to walk down and visit resturants and shops. Easy and headache free stay.

Stayed four nights as this was the perfect central location for exploring the GOR in both directions. Leanne on reception was friendly and helpful, and the guest laundry is a great bonus if, like us, you're on a long journey. Our room was clean, comfortable and had a lovely sea view, and was a safe haven during the recent storms. Would recommend Sandpiper Motel without hesitation.

Room Tip: Room 17, large queen with sea view was a great choice.

Our guests are coming to the realisation that Apollo Bay is a great place to explore the Great Ocean Road and Sandpiper Motel is a fabulous place to stay in Apollo Bay. Four nights will allow you to explore most places along the road. These guests were clearly very taken by our motel and our staff. Lets hope they tell all their friends.

it's all good if travel maximum in 3, as I don't think can fit a family of 4. rooms we stayed in are all good except we can hear every single step people walking in the rooms above us, most of the time we can hear them talk, lucky enough they didn't party all night.

We do have a Family Apartment that has 5 sleeping positions for those that require larger accommodation. Most of our rooms will sleep 3 with a roll away bed. This guest was clearly a little upset by the noise from the upstairs room. I'm sure we would have moved them to a room with no second storey above had one been available and they had asked. I'm not sure of all the circumstances. Nevertheless, the title of the review leaves me feeling more comfortable...."its all happy...". That's the way we like to view Sandpiper Motel!
