“Great location and staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

I stayed one night during my trip on the Great Ocean Road. I really like my stay there. The staff was really nice and welcoming. The room is clean and well furnished. Close to the beach and the main restaurants of Apollo Bay.
The only thing that we could say is that the wifi is a little bit expensive. But overall it's a really great accommodation. Thanks.

A great place to stay on a visit through the Great Ocean Road. Booking experience was efficient and quick and we drove in from Torquay, parked right in front of our door and checked in.
Room is clean and tidy - with a small kitchen and bathroom with separate toilet facility.
Walked along the main street to all our meals in Apollo Bay and also did our beach walks right in front of the motel. Incidentally, the town's Information Centre is right across the road from the motel so that's really convenient for visitors who require information or directions.
Highly recommended as it's good value and well located.

Room Tip: We had a room (no. 4) which was quite close to the main street but the noise didn't bother us at...

Very clean and tidy motel. Everything in room worked and they had a little kitchen with toaster, kettle and the small kitchen essentials. Nice, quiet and walking distance to the shops. Located right across the beach. there are two supermarkets near by with lots of cafes. Overall very happy with this place.

A great motel in an ideal location for visiting the Otway National Park and the beautiful Great Ocean Road. The rooms are well equiped with parking directly outside and the beach is just across the road.

I stayed at the Beachfront Motel with a friend last month for two nights and booked a twin room, which came with a double and a single bed, a small kitchenette and bathroom with shower. Check in was straightforward and all the staff we came across were friendly. The room was large, comfortable, had plenty of storage for a couple of days (wardrobe and lots of bench space), crockery and cutlery which was handy for bringing food back. Apollo Bay isn't a large town, the motel was opposite the tourist office and a less than a minute to shops, cafes and restaurants. I usually stay in B&Bs but the motel was spot on for a budget stay exploring the Great Ocean Road and Otways.

I booked this on the basis of the reviews and was not disappointed. It is small - about 12 rooms and located on the Great Ocean road with great views. Each room has its own covered car port. The room was fairly large by motel standards, scrupulously clean with a double and single bed both exceptionally comfortable ( we tossed, she lost but still slept well!) There is a small kitchen area with sachets of tea, coffee and milk which was appreciated. The shower was basic but again clean , functional and loads of hot water.
There are loads of good cafes near bye which open at 8am so there is no need to worry about breakfast.
Highly recommended especially for the price. Advance booking recommended

great little hotel. quiet, clean etc. we arrived late but nothing was a problem. the bed was comfortable, little kicthen was handy. good parking which was covered which was lucky as was raining hard when we arrived. to be honest i'm suprised they were so cheap. we tried to book an extra second night but they were full up. would love to have stayed longer.
