Queens birthday is very busy - so you should book a table or expect to wait 45mins. We were fortunate a table became free on our arrival and were seated straight away. The staff are fast and efficient and friendly. Counter service not table service....More

A great spot to watch the finish line for the Running Festival. The drinks were cold and the sunshine welcome. The tapped cider could be better though.

Service on this very busy weekend was lacklustre. Very few smiles and low on friendly service. Food was heavy, mass produced standard pub food. No focus on good salad or vegetable sides.

Had lunch with family here. Food was good but service was poor. When we asked for water the waiter said we have to help ourselves by walking to the counter and get water jar from there. They are more focused on serving Bus tour groups.

Apollo Bay Hotel is located right in the heart of Apollo Bay, only 2.5 hours drive west of Melbourne on the breathtaking Great Ocean Road. Apollo Bay is literally 'Paradise by the Sea' - a small coastal town renowned for its magnificent beaches, farmers market and local community spirit, surrounded by the Otway Ranges and only a short distance from the famous Twelve Apostles. Our Hotel offers spectacular views of the Apollo Bay Foreshore thanks to our newly renovated Bistro and Alfresco dining area, and we offer an extensive dining menu featuring traditional pub fare, pizza, delicious specials and a selection of seasonal dishes. Live music most weekends. Accommodation is available as well as a newly appointed function room. The Hotel caters for large groups (including tour groups). Please contact us for more information.
