Well setup modern, neat and clean. Parking at the door. Unit was well setout with all you needed for a good nights stay. Had a modern kitchenette. Bathroom was clean and spacious (although no lock on the external window?). Beds were nice and comfy and peacefull nights sleep. Good location in a nice town. Would stay here if back here in future.

Apollo Bay is great place to stop for a night for anyone embarking on the Great Ocean Road drive. I'm glad we chose Coastal Motel as it is located within walking distance to all the eateries and shops. There is also a petrol station right beside the motel.
A parking space is allocated outside each room so it's easy to bring our belongings to/ from the car.
Bed was clean and comfy so we had a good night sleep.
Towels, basic toiletries (shampoo, bath gel) are provided, however pls do bring your own toothbrush & toothpaste as they are not provided.

The room at the Coastal Motel was quite nice however when we arrived on a wet, cold and stormy Friday night at around 8.30pm, Reception was closed with just a small note with a mobile number for “emergencies”. No instructions about how to get our key etc and we were not alone as a group of tourists were also in the same predicament. Eventually someone called the mobile and was told that keys were in the box by the door. OK but a simple text message to our phones to advise this would have been helpful and not difficult to do. When we got into the room, there was no toilet paper anywhere. No tissues either. The in-house phone to dial Reception did not work. We made do. I called the emergency number in the morning as still there was no Reception. I was then told that housekeeping would drop some toilet paper off to us within 20mins. I then remarked that a text message regarding keys for late arrivals would be a good idea for future customers and was met with a barrage of argument saying that they had never had complaints before etc. the owner informed me that I should have known as this information was on the booking confirmation. It wasn’t. I was merely giving customer feedback. So in summary, quite a nice room, but absolutely no service.

Room Tip: If you arrive in the evening, look for your keys in the box next to Reception apparently!!

We had decided on a road trip from Adelaide to Melbourne unplanned with no booking reservations for food or accommodation neither did we research any of our stops so hopefully this will give us an unbiased view of our reviews.

After an awful journey over the hills in one of the worst weather conditions we have encountered we came across this motel lit up in a sleepy looking town.
We took the only room for a family which just in case is not explained to you is three single beds on a mezzanine with the double bed being in the kitchen dining area.
Very helpful lady on the desk and place was clean and tidy with a comfortable bed. Wifi was vague but maybe have been weather conditions.
Overpriced for similar accommodation along the great ocean road.

I found this motel on the Wotif site and it stood out to me as a clean and comfortable motel. Apollo Bay has many motels and apartments and we have stayed in a few different ones over the years but have never been back to any of those. On arrival, the parking was easy, the receptionist was very pleasant and friendly. We went to our room and it was exactly as advertised. We had a king-size bed, the room seemed recently renovated, everything was clean and fresh and nicely decorated, the kitchen was well supplied. The TV and wall heater worked very well. Free WIFI was great too.The bathroom mirror was large also there was a full length mirror in the bedroom, (this is most unusual). Each room had a nice big window and this made the room bright. On sleeping the bed was so comfortable, better than at home.
My only COMMENT would be that it would be good to have separate switches for the fan and light in the bathroom, being on one switch when you were doing make-up or hair in the bathroom mirror the loud fan also ran.
