We spent two nights here in February and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Our room was crystal sparkling clean and was a real pleasure to stay here. The motel is one block behind the main drag which worked well as we were only a short walking distance to anything and the bonus was it was very quiet. Really enjoyed our stay.

Stayed here for one night after seeing the 12 Apostles on The Great Ocean Road. Booked two spa/wood fire rooms. £115 each. The wife's first comment was 'they're the cleanest rooms I've seen'. The pictures and details on the website are accurate and the staff are very helpful. I asked about eating places they would recommend and one of them...

Apollo Bay is a great place to stop on a Great Ocean Road trip and Beachcomber is a great place to stay. The room was big and had everything we needed to cook and relax. The location is perfect - just a couple blocks from the main street.

Thank you Helena B for review and positive comments on location, service, modern decor, free WIFI etc, nice to read.

The rooms here are very comfortable, with good amenities..........toaster, kettle, cutlery, plates, glasses, tea and coffee. The room was spotless clean, the managers rightfully so are very proud of their hotel, are friendly with lots of local tips. The hotel is situated a street or two back from the ocean, is nice and quiet with an easy 5 min walk...

Day 1 of our GOR trip. Good location to venture out to Mait's Rest Rainforest Walk and Mariner's Lookout. Food not an issue as there are eateries within walking distance. We thought the Twin room could be tight for 3 of us but the queen and single beds inside still left us space to put down our luggage. Not like...

Alison is a very welcoming host, room was large , comfortable and spa very welcome. Host shared good local knowledge which we appreciated. Ideal location, quiet but easy walking to everything. Rooms well equipped , we were going to stay again but time preclude this, it would be an ideal place to stay for a few days and explore.
