Agree with other reviewer that this is a very average old style motel. This is really grim if your surroundings are important to you. Clean. Tiny rooms but well equipped. Shower had to be seen to be believed, was it really a 1950s relic? Do not believe the photo shown, goodness knows how they got it to look Iike that....

This motel is easygoing and simple. Our room was clean, functional and has everything you need. Bathroom a bit too small and shower box too. Bed quality is good. Internet can be a little slow but otherwise works. Parking is available. All in all a fine place for stopover.

This is a very average old style motel. Rooms are exactly what you would expect in such a property. Probably a bit on the expensive side for what it is but there again so are all other Apollo Bay hotels.It is well situated right in the centre of town.

This hotel is in a great location within walking distance to the shops and restaurants. Rooms are clean and the bed is comfortable but prices are a bit expensive (eg even more than the Crown Metropol). Overall not a bad stay on your great ocean road journey.

The staff were extremely friendly. Our room was clean and very comfortable. The location was close to the beach, pub, restaurants and shops, it was perfect for our needs. Apollo Bay is a beautiful place with lots of bush walks within close proximity.

Although an older style motel the service was five star. The location is excellent and once there you can walk to the beach in minutes. We stayed with one teannager and she had plenty of data to use as well. The beds were extremely comfortable and the ability to do the washing was an advantage to the extended traveller.
