Stayed two nights in a Beachcomber self contained apartment. We were welcomed by the very friendly and helpful owners. The apartment came equipped with everything one needs to self cater, including a 4 ring hob, microwave, crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils and a can opener (an item which we found to be an endangered species in other motels). The room was nicely decorated and furnished in a modern style, with a comfortable bed. A spacious bathroom with a good shower and heating, all in excellent condition and spotlessly clean. The wifi signal was strong and stable. One of the best places we have stayed. We even saw a koala in a tree across the road!

Wonderful review and excellent score Robert!!!! Thank you very much for your glowing comments, this is what we love to read, very happy guests. So pleasing that you described our property as one of the best places you had experienced on your holiday. Yes our local koala in the tree across the road is a bonus. Thanks also for mentioning strong WIFI as it is very important for our guests.
Thanks for choosing to stay with us and we trust the rest of your Aussie break is a good one. Cheers Alison & Chris.

The Beachcomber Motel and Apartments is in a lovely part of Apollo Bay. Within walking distances to restaurants and Pubs but far enough away to be really quiet. The Apartment we had was very spacious and lovely and clean. The beds were comfortable. Alison & Chris (the owners) are very friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend the place to travellers without any hesitation. We booked directly through their website and Alison gave us a wonderful price, by far the best price anywhere else we have stayed. It was a great place to stay.

Room Tip: We had a studio apartment which was very spacious

We were in Apollo Bay for the Amy Gillet Gran Fondo. Upon arrival at the motel we were greeted by lovely lady who had actually heard of the small town we come from because her husband came from near there.
We had book a family room because initially we were a party of three. Unfortunately we became a party of two (my husband and I). The room was awesome. It was fully self contained and had a split system for heating and cooling as well as a log fire. It was cold so my husband got the fire going. It was lovely. Big bed, two couches and the second bedroom had a bunk and a single bed. The bathroom had a spa (in which we indulged).
The room was clean, the amenities great and the staff lovely. If I need to stay in Apollo Bay again, this is where I will be staying.

We decided to stay overnight for our great ocean road trip. The room is very comfortable. There are all essential in-room amenities. The room look better from the pictures on internet. The place is very convenient o go to main street for food and groceries.
