Check in was great with a very helpful staff member showing us places on the map to visit. Room was spacious and very clean. Position of hotel meant we could pop next door for dinner. Hotel was in a good location for this area

The room was quite modern and the shower large with the biggest shower head I have ever seen. The staff were friendly and helpful but you would expect that for the price which is probably what they can charge at this time of year as accomodation is in high demand.

Dear Ron B, Thank you for taking the time to write a review on our property. We are so glad you liked your room and the large shower head! Our staff are always here to help our guests as much as we can. Yes, prices around Apollo Bay are higher during holiday seasons and long weekends. On the other hand there are some fantastic deals on offer during the quieter winter months. We hope you enjoy the rest of your holidays! Regards, Rebekah (Reception)

Booked with Best Western Appollo Bay Motel thru Wotif. Search dates didnt transfer to booking and we got one night out of three requested (thought I had a bargain for three night). It was not until I looked at email received, realised error (honest mistake). Called to cancel

This was the only available lodging option left when we booked. It was fine, but the price we paid was much too expensive. Additionally, there was a large spider in the bathroom. Most hotels at this price point at lease provide some free water, but we had to pay $3 for a bottle

Dear Boshi90, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Yes, prices around Apollo Bay are higher during holiday seasons and long weekends. On the other hand there are some fantastic deals on offer during the quieter winter months. Our rooms are professionally cleaned daily and all spiders are removed, however we must keep in mind that we are in the middle of the bush here in Apollo Bay and spiders can enter the rooms when doors are opened. We provide free drinking water jugs in all our rooms, we encourage you to use this next time. Please enjoy the rest of your holiday, Rebekah (Reception)

Although it was busy at checkin the staff took time to recommend restaurants (and advise were not to go, very important I think). Also advised there would be a market the next morning and suggested things to do.Bed was a bit soft for my liking but probably perfect for someone

Dear Trudi, Firstly I would love to say thank you for taking so much time leave a review, without your commitment to sending a well written response about your stay we could not be able to improve. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us, we always make sure we put in 110% in providing satisfaction for our guests. I really do wish you would have let us know about the pillows, reception is contactable 24 hours a day with hosts living on-site. We offer our guests a pillow menu if the ones in the rooms do not suit. In regards to the WIFI and television connection. We have unlimited access and a high speed connection, however the town of Apollo Bay can only withhold a certain number of people using Cellular Data / WIFI coverage etc. Please keep in mind how remote we are in this small town, our population of 1500 climbs to a staggering 15000 this time of year. As a business there is very little we can do about it. The shire knows of the issue and is looking into upgrading the service to the town. Yes, prices around Apollo Bay are higher during holiday seasons and long weekends. On the other hand there are some fantastic deals on offer during the quieter winter months. We would absolutely love to see you here again and I wish you all the best in the future. Kindest regards, Rebekah (Reception)

"Read honest reviews on trip advisor"

"They all look pretty much ofa muchness overlooking a central courtyard"
"pick an upstairs room"
"Rooms are arrange around a central courtyard - so all are very similar. Perhaps avoid being next to the laundry room?"
