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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We really enjoyed our stay in a 2 bedroom ocean view apartment at Dolphin Apartments. It is clean, modern with everything you need including dishwasher detergent and washing powder. Beds are extremely comfortable with great pillows. Bathrooms have full toiletries dispensers in the showers, the towels are large. Situated across the road from the beach and an easy walk to shops, cafes and restaurants, it was quiet at night. Highly recommend staying here if you are visiting Apollo Bay.

We had a wonderful stay at the Dolphin Apartments. It is located in a lovely location just across the street from Apollo Bay, close to the shops, restaurants and grocery stores. We stayed in a top floor unit and had a great view, other than the top of the gas station. Everything was clean and modern.

Thank you Nonie1958 for your review and feedback. We are very pleased to hear how you enjoyed your stay with us during your trip to Australia. The Great Ocean Road is a must do for many international visitors and Apollo Bay is located right in the middle of the beautiful stretch of road. As mentioned we are very conveniently located across the road from the Apollo Bay beach as well as a short distance to the shops and supermarkets. The service station in front of us is a good landmark to know where we are and causes minimal disruption to the view from the top level apartments. Thank you for staying with us and we wish you many more happy travels. Kind regards, Emily Stephens - Manager

Nice large two bedroom two bathroom apartment across the road from the beach and 5 minute walk to centre of town . The only negative would be climbing in and out of ensuite single spa for older couples.

Clean, pleasant apartment on the top floor with a nice view. It’s behind the service station but you can see over it fine. Very spacious and private for the price. Kitchen had everything we needed. There were 2 modern bathrooms with plenty of toiletries. Couch very comfortable with smart tv for streaming. Staff were extremely helpful.

We stayed in a penthouse apartment which was spacious, clean, comfortable and well-appointed. Really comfy beds and pillows and a lovely big shower and spa-bath. The balcony views were brilliant and we were close to town and the beach. Couldn’t ask for more.
