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.

Very nice accommodation in Apollo Bay. Room was nice with an en-suite kitchenette with basic amenities which is to be expected of a small motel like accomodation. Otherwise it’s a great spot to be in to explore the great ocean road and we took day trips out to the 12 apostles from here - slightly long drive but ok otherwise. Town centre has some decent food choices and shopping though very limited but again expected of a small town. Come here to experience magnificent views and beautiful sunrises and sunsets!

We booked one of their deluxe room with sea view for an over night stay as we were driving back to the city. The room was exceptionally clean and very cozy with the fire heat to warm you up as you could feel the breeze from ocean. The only disappointment was the balcony lock isn’t working so it was not safe during the night. I had to drag my partner when we heard a loud noise at wee hours-it feels like someone was tryin to open the door. Also, when we checked out, I was very surprised to learn that they’ve collected the payment from my card 3 weeks prior when it clearly mentioned that they would charge us on arrival. Their management can do better by updating their terms had it been changed. No apologies from them at all. The lady said I should speak to booking.com instead. I use this app to book hotels and trips but never had any issues. To sum it up, location and the room is as good as you seen in photos but you don’t get a proper customer service.

Website pics look AMAZING right? Dig deeper peeps. We did, but only upon having over a week of drama just to NOT get a booking - maybe a lucky escape? The bookings system is TERRIBLE if you are booking multiple rooms or across different dates. Don't excpect ANY SUPPORT from the management. Despite receiving an email upon expressing our booking issue saying everything would be fine and they had availability for our needs, and follow their instruction to book, the site did not work and allow the booking. It then took over a week, and multiple emails (AND NO SIMPLE REQUESTED PHONE CALL PROMISED which would have resolved immediately) to get a completely unhelpful response. However, in that extra 'time' we read multiple reviews and customer pics show while location is on the beach for some, the rooms are not what they are cracked up to be - and trust us, those reviews are in line with the customer servicewe failed to receive! The booking system If you do choose to stay regardless of the poor website booking dramas, complete lack of management interaction, and the old pics of rooms in their hay day (without how close they actually are together, and how car the rooms on the hil are, and how close the road actually is), then be aware, the room rates across sites are HIGHLY variable...so at least get the cheapest rate possible to get some sort of value fromt he experience!

These cabins are located nicely by the sea on the hill that nearby road (Great Ocean Road) does not bother at all and you can hear sea nicely all the time. City of Apollo Bay is just A 5min away where you find restaurants and shops and what ever you need.

Seafarers is in a fabulous location about 3-4 km from the township & offers fabulous views of the ocean (100 mtrs. away). The rooms are very well fitted out & modern. Excellent bed, good kitchenette & nice bathroom. It is a nice place. However, at $670 for 2 nights (school holidays) it does not represent good value. My wife & I have stayed in accommodation all over Australia & have some experience & whilst this is nice, it is not worth $670. Buyer beware!

We recently stayed as a family of 4 in a beach view lodge. We booked our accommodation directly and received complimentary wine and chocolates, always a great touch! Not much to look at from the outside but lovely inside! There's a gas fireplace and you can see the ocean from inside the bathroom/shower or you can close the privacy screen. Close to town as well. The main difference between the top lodges and the ocean view lodges is the location. The top lodges are located higher up the hill. Still a fantastic view from either!

Seafarers was located just out of town and with a great view of the beach. The weather wasn't ideal during our visit, but it was spectacular hearing the waves crash. Well stocked for cooking etc and everything was clean and tidy. A nice base for a couple of nights.

We've stayed here two ( 2x) Christmases in a row, and have loved it - staying in the Top Lodge Villas, for 5 nights, and they're amazing!! They're completely private, have ocean-views with private decks, chair/table to sit out there and read/drink wine/coffee and watch the ocean and the weather roll in - and then you have the alpacas that walk past each morning and night doing their food-run, and the koalas and the birds and everything in between! We have loved staying here, both times, and have found it peaceful and so easy! The lodges are self-contained, they have wifi, ovens and full kitchen with all the necessary amenitities and space, a gas log heater and a heater, and an air con, great bathroom with see-through showerscreen that you can look out across to the ocean or close it for privacy, lots of space, and parking outside your front door. There's not a lot of space for your luggage/storage, so no cupboards, so you'll have to make do. And there's only one couch, but the lounge is small, and the TV is close if that's your thing! It's a 10 minute drive into town, and also a great walk along the road for the brave!! A huge, vast beach right down below that you can sit at all day, basically all to yourself, with a quick 2 min drive back up to your lodge to have lunch or a break, or you can simply enjoy days on your deck and get some sun or some shade!!! We'll definitely be back!! A very easy stay!

It's one of a few (is there any other?) properties along the Great Ocean Road that actually sits across a beach. One can hear the crashing waves which make it special. However, the room was very spartan and a bit cozy, much like rooms in a small motel. It was also cold and we were unable to adjust the a/c to a more comfortable temperature which made for a cold night. Perhaps if we had arrived during office hours there would have been someone to help.

Great view but just an old motel with a cheap makeover, rooms are very small and just not worth $315, really disappointing. The driveway is a dirt pot-holed goat track and no undercover parking, room didn’t even have an iron and if you leave a dirty dish in the sink they charge you extra!
