A one night get away. The location is great, the facilities basic but adequate. Nothing to write home about! More attention could be paid to mould in the shower recess and to the rusty fittings. If I had to add more words I'd suggest that a professional designer would make better use of the space. There's very little storage in...

We stopped here overnight on our trip through the GOR and found the room spacious, clean and comfy. You couldn't want more for an overnight stay at a great price! The visitor information centre is just over the road, you can walk across the road to the beach and everything is within walking distance :) We'll be back.

Our last minute stay at this motel while driving the Great Ocean Road was great. Whilst it's a little dated looking, the room was well equipped with all the things we could want for a comfortable overnight stay. The motel overall is well maintained, the owners were friendly and made check in and out a breeze, a great spot for...

Best motel we've stayed at for a while. Friendly helpful staff, close to the restaurants and cafes. First time a motel room has had enough power points for all the devices we need to charge - double points both sides of the bed, and along each wall. One excellent feature which should be mandatory in all hotels was the low...

This is a very well looked after motel. It is modest, being its original 1970's style, but well-maintained and spotlessly clean. The soft furnishings (bed, chairs etc) are new and good quality so a good night's sleep. Despite being on the main road, it is quiet at night. Handy to the shops, and an excellent small supermarket just around the...

Nice quiet location a block or so back from the main street which is only 5 mins away. Spacious Queen size bed room with kitchenette facilities and wall mounted TV. Friendly motel owner/operator. My wife was most satisfied with the cleanliness and amenity and she has very standards.

motel was in a good spot and Apollo Bay is very pretty. Room etc was old fashioned but clean although the pillow smelt funny. Wouldn't recommend although it was ok. No facilities like a restaurant and lady at desk didn't help with and activities

Quiet from traffic. Rooms very clean & big enough. Separate little kitchen. Didn't find switch for atrium blind until morning - bit late! Minimal human contact but ok. Breakfast not available but good cafe very close.

We booked 3 rooms for a 1 night stay to bring our 91yo father to see the Great Ocean Road again. Very clean and ideally located to town centre. Ideal for our stay. Very good price from TripAdvisor obtained.

Ideally located on main road into town, opposite the beach, although no beach view. Very clean & comfortable room, warm in winter! Very helpful with where to eat etc. We only stopped over for one night while travelling the scenic Great Ocean Rd, but would go again
