Great stay for a night

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 5 May 2023via mobile
Spent a night here whilst on our Great Ocean Road journey. Apollo Bay made a decent halfway point between Melbourne and Warrnambool and the Sandpiper seemed a reasonable price. We were very pleasantly surprised on arrival as our expectations were low with the “Motel” moniker. Large open rooms with balconies including a (albeit partial) sea view. Very clean and perfectly located. I would recommend to anyone stopping in Apollo Bay to stay here for a night.

Reviewed 4 May 2023 via mobile

I booked this hotel based on the reviews I read on TA and Google. I made the right decision.
The location is very good, short 5 minute walk to the beachfront, restaurants and grocery stores.

I had a ground floor room, very clean, adequate furniture for 2 people with 2 chairs, work desk and outdoor table and chairs.

It’s not 5 star, but you shouldn’t expect that with the price.

Bed was comfortable, hot water aplenty but it does take a few minutes to come through the pipes.

I extended the booking and the owner was happy to offer a discount.

Would I stay again - YES

Nice place to stay, clean, quiet and comfortable with everything we needed. Checkin was contactless with good communication. Room was roomy with a heat pump and comfortable bed. We had everything we needed for a pleasant stay. Would stay again.

Great little motel in Apollo Bay. Very clean and updated! Easy parking, easy check in and out and well located just off the main drag in Apollo Bay. Not much else to add really. Pretty straight forward.
