Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed in the best western for a night while cycling the great ocean road. The receptionist went out of her way to accomodate our booking- we arrived early and it was raining so she let us into our room early.
The room itself was lovely and clean, and surprisingly modern in its interior. My partner quickly found the electric blanket, which he enjoyed!
Everything was very clean, and all cups, toiletries and cutlery are stored in bags so that you know they have been washed before use.
Special shout out for the half litre of lovely local milk which the hotel supplies when you stay there- it is grown at a farm which is located at the 12 apostles! It was the creamiest, most delicious milk that I have tried, and I am so happy to see they are supporting local. Thank you for a great night!

Hi Gaby H, Thank you for the great score of 5/5. We follow the Best Western #wecareclean protocol which has been updated due to COVID, to give guests that extra sense of confidence about the cleanliness of our rooms, so all items are still available, but may need to be requested, and other items, as you mention, are bagged, or provided at check-in. We love supporting our local businesses so the milk is just one way we do that. Next time, check out our mini-bar offerings, which is also sourced locally. Well done to you for cycling the Great Ocean Road - just one of the fantastic options of seeing this beautiful area up close! Kind regards Robyn (owner / operator)

My family of 4 stayed in a family room / apartment. It could not have been better - quality bedding and linen, black out and modern curtains, large screen TV, spacious modern bathroom, COVID planning obvious, off the main road so very quiet yet right in the heart of town to walk to cafes including two organic / raw food cafes. Staff friendly and helpful.

Hello Karen B, Thank you for the great feedback about our renovations, including the new black out curtains, large TV and updated bathrooms. We are following the Best Western WeCareClean protocal which has been enhanced to capture COVID compliance and local Government advice. A few potentially high touch items have been removed from rooms, but are still available by asking one of our staff, or at reception. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards Robyn (owner / operator)

Excellent location in the centre of town. Owners very friendly and helpful. Our room was well equipped, modern feel and well equipped. We had an early morning start so continental breakfast brought to our room the previous evening which was generous and delicious. Would thoroughly recommend.

At short notice flew to Victoria to travel the Great ocean road and stay at some of the great places along the road. Being a last minute thing I had not booked ahead instead see what town I arrived at and then look for a local Motel. Arriving into Apollo Bay I checked websites and seeing the Best Western Apollo Bay Motel showing a room at $162 dollars I booked it. Two minutes later received a confirmation at $309 dollars. I instantly cancelled and being only two minutes from Motel I stopped in to apologise to manager and to let them know what had happened and request a refund. Sorry was the answer cancelling within 24 hours means you forfeit all monies even though the cancellation was within 5 mins of booking and I drove to Motel to notify them. Initially she laid the blame at the third party booking site who she informed me do the billing and I would have to contact them for any refund. The next day I contacted the booking site who informed me they do not do the billing it was the Motel only they could do a refund. Congrats Manager you just got me out of there by putting the onus on someone else and told me I should not have used them in the first place if I came direct I would have received a better price. Where would all these Motels be if it was not for the convenience of these sites. Yes I made the mistake by cancelling and so I am out of pocket and they just made $309 in five minutes, not bad for doing nothing but Best Western group will never get my business again.

Mistakes do happen and it was highlight that making a booking, on-line, it is the bookers own responsibility and at their own risk. Rate inconsistency is a complex issue across the industry and is not exclusive to us, it is created by on-line travel agencies and very cleverly made to appear to be caused by the guest facing person at reception of the motel. Our rate, provided to the on-line travel agent, at the time of the booking was not $162 on any platform. Bookings are made with specific terms and conditions, agreed to by the booker with the platform in which they make the booking – in this case you selected to do this through an online platform that had non-refundable terms. As you were already in Apollo Bay why not walk into reception instead of using a third party booking service? As you should be aware Best Western members who book directly receive a better rate, points and a gift card for a future stay which is all part of the current Best Western Summer promotion. Whenever you travel in this wonderful country of ours and particularly given recent catastrophic events, it is encouraged that you book direct, and take your @emptyesky to support other local independent businesses.

10 off us rode into Apollo Bay at the end of a days' touring and checked into our pre-arranged motel. Our room was a bit small but overall very comfortable. We had a good nights sleep and went to the breakfast room for our included breakfast. Apparently the motel was just coming out of COVID lock down restrictions and we think we were the first to enjoy breakfast there in some time. The owners were a bit rusty but delighted to assist us in any way they could. Food choices were excellent, a great selection of hot and cold choices. To top it off, we were all thoroughly impressed with the huge chandelier hanging from the very high ceiling the breakfast room - apparently purchased at a charity auction and installed during the lockdown. We really enjoyed our short stay.

Hello StephenR285, Thank you for taking the time to provide your feedback. It is great to have groups travelling again, although I write this during yet another Circuit-breaker lockdown. Hopefully we will be back welcoming everyone again soon. We have modified our breakfast presentation to comply with the Best Western #wecareclean protocols, so our focus is to ensure our guests feel safe and welcome. It is great to hear that you enjoyed our breakfast offering. Yes, the chandelier was the result of a charity auction in support of the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation #OCRF. Thank you for your stay. Kind regards Robyn (owner / operator)

Stayed for two nights with family in a massive apartment with plenty of room to relax and great kitchen facilities

The bathroom looked newly renovated and the TV was simply huge.

We were really impressed with how seriously the owners were taking COVID-safe procedures. From the welcome pack with shampoos etc to the iron in the room kept in a bag, spare pillows etc

The pool and outdoor furniture area looked really inviting. We will definitely be back when the weather is warmer to enjoy the pool and beach, which is just a 90sec walk from the hotel.

All the staff and owners were incredibly helpful and friendly. Thanks to Robyn, Lyn and David. We will be back!

Walking distance to shop, good price.
Room is clean, look new. Everything are paper bagged & sealed because of covid. Daily service.
There is pool for kids. A friendly manager/owner brought some pool towels to the pool when he saw kids swimming.
We enjoy our stay & would stay here again if we back to town again.

This Best Western has super friendly staff. Ground level units for easy access. Car can be parked outside ground level units.
1 bedroom units are very spacious.
Beds clean and comfortable.
It is a flat short walk into the CBD of the township.
Straight across the road is the renowned Italian restaurant Casalingo, next door to that is a fantastic little cafe that serves breakfast and very nice coffee.

We have stayed here before and certainly would again.

Great wheelchair/ disability access apartment, proper disabled access bathroom with plenty of turning space, space for hoist if you need to use one, fold down shower seat and accessible sink. Comfy king size bed and also a single in a seperate room that could be used for a carer or would also suitable access for a child or adult with disability. Everything in kitchen at bench height and they have made sure to put a sign up for reserve the park out front of room for disability access. Both rooms have flat access to disabled access bathroom. Flat entry and throughout rooms, tile in main kitchen/ bedroom, carpet in single bedroom. Full fridge, microwave and stove top with low cupboards. Considering it's an older style hotel they have done a great job, disability access wise and so helpful to have access to a kitchen when away from home. Can access photos on their website of disability access room. Only thing not accessible is a small step at front reception but I sent my partner to check in anyway and they have been friendly and helpful during our stay, so I'm sure they would meet you at your vehicle if you don't have a carer with you. Close to town centre too, we'd come back again.
