Rooms have views of beaches but are the 'wrong side' of the Ocean Road. Not a major issue but a little unexpected. Rooms themselves were in a line and felt as if they had been constructed at low-cost - may not be the case but for us, there was a feeling of 'mdf' walls. Reception was pleasant but shame that...

I must say the view from the top lodge is breath-taking. It's a little pity that the weather was quite bad during our stay. Anyway, there is no cupboard in the apartment and only 2 coat racks. There is also a lack of mirror. The only one available is the one at the toilet and it is really a hassle...

Stayed a night. Excellent views, wake up to the mesmerising sound of the ocean. Room is clean, simple and modern. Kitchen with knives, plates and kitchen paraphernalia. Cooked a meal. Supermarket 2 minutes away. Lovely.

Rooms are small but they are modern, neat, tidy and functional. We stayed 2 nights and didn't realise that our room was not serviced on day 2. Location is too far out of Apollo Bay to walk. The apartments are located a short walk across the road to the beach - if you are a light sleeper you may find...

This is an absolutely beautiful place. One of the best places we have stayed in our travels. We were in the top lodges and the view looking out to the ocean was gorgeous. Coming from the city, this was the second time we had such a clear view of the milky way. On the drive to your lodge, look out...

We were lucky enough to stay in an Ocean View Studio which had a small kitchen and also a barbecue on the large deck overlooking the sea. The view was breathtaking and we also had the pleasure of seeing the sheep and llamas at the dam just below us. The bed was really comfortable and the studio was beautifully presented....

Excellent modern accommodation, located on The Great Ocean Road just outside Apollo Bay. Our well maintained, well equipped room was situated just 2 minutes walk away from one of the many stunning beaches found along the Great Ocean Road and the wide balcony proved to be the perfect place to watch the sunrise as a lone surfer rode the waves....

Great location just outside Apollo Bay, amazing view from the very comfortable room. Superbly clean and comfortable. Shame the weather wasn't warmer for us to use the beach and outside facilities. Good base to visit Otway. We stayed two nights and ate out at Chris's lookout (nice but quite pricey) and the Brewhouse (a bit cafeteria set up for us...

Second time visit. First time was around 8 years ago. Loved it then, love it more now. Beautifully refurbished. Best location. We stayed in one of the top lodges. Amazing view of the beach. The place is just a minute drive from the local cafes and shops.

Stayed here for only 1 night, should have stayed longer, for our weekend away Great Ocean Road trip. It is a little out of town so you cannot walk in, but that wasn't a problem. Great views, beautifully designed, furnished and accessorised. Would love to com back again
