As the title says very good stay, nice and clean, hosts were excellent and breakfast fab. Would have been five stars but for the cost would have expected a free bottle of water not having to pay $3 nor having to contribute towards DVD's. Small picky things I accept but for me a '5' is perfect.

While traveling the Great Ocean Road we stopped in Apollo Bay. Captain's is ideal in that it's not on the main road, it's on a quiet street, and easy/short walking distance to restaurants, the beach and shops. The Inn is immaculately clean, modern rooms and spacious baths. Staff is very friendly, they helped us with securing a dinner reservation at...

This is our 2nd night here, giving us just one full day in the Apollo Bay Area. It deserves longer - 3 nights - 2 days - would have been better. Apollo Bay is such a lovely laid back town, plenty of attractions in the area, not just the beach and harbour etc but in the hills beyond too. Maits...

As soon as we arrived Duncan was there to greet us and gave lots of local information. We had a 3 bedroomed apartment, it was clean, a good size with 2 shower rooms.

We stayed two nights at The Cottage. Lovely light and airy building with a large bath in the bedroom/living area! Excellent facilities, although the small 'kitchen' area was just that - very small. Breakfast was very good and the staff and owners, particularly Duncan, were very helpful. Good undercover parking area and nice little seating/pation area leading off the main...
