We had one of the ocean-view spa rooms and it provided a great view of the water and of the hills beyond. The lady who checked us in was incredibly helpful with regard to places to eat, for breakfast and for dinner and we certainly can't fault her recommendations!

The location is very good; close to the main strip where there are plenty of places to eat, as well as right across the road from the beach. Obviously, being right on the Great Ocean Road there's a bit of noise during the day, but we found it perfectly okay to leave the door open at night while we slept so the ocean sounds could provide a much needed mental massage.

The only negative I found was that the bed wasn't all that comfortable for me. Normally sleep on a memory foam mattress and the inner-spring bed here felt less supportive than what I'm used to. Didn't stop me sleeping, just wasn't as comfortable as I'd have liked.

Room tip: If you're not put off by the daytime noise, choose an ocean view room because the view is worth it.

Unable to describe how friendly the lady who check us in and out at the reception which introduced us place to visit in Apollo Bay. The most we love is fully kitchenette in our room which my dad able to cook simple dinner and breakfast to enjoy at our room with nice garden view.

Pls try to stay here if you visit Apollo Bay.

Really enjoy the stay, very friendly ladies at reception, very clean and well-equipped cottage, excellent sea view, walking distance to shops. Have to register for TripAdvisor just to give this rating.

Stayed here for 2 nights with my partner. Found the staff incredibly helpful - from the email sent in advance of our arrival and then in person when we checked in. The location is great, and we were helped to organise a taxi to Chris’s restaurant for dinner and offered recommendations.

The motel is in a perfect location across from the beach and very close to cafes, shops & the pub.

Highly recommend staying here if you are visiting Apollo Bay.
