One of the few places that would let you book just one night on great ocean road for a decent price.
It's a small place with only a few rooms (10 or so?) and they are right opposite the reception. The rooms are are 'cottage' style and big enough for 4 adults to stay comfortably. The place was clean, quiet and well maintained. They also had a pool and bbq area although we didnt stay long enough to use it.
The location is pretty good too. It's 5 mins to Apollo bay, 15 mins to great otway national park where you can see wild koalas (on the road to the lighthouse) and it's also at a good mid-way point on the way to 12 apostals (1 hours 15 mins to get there)
