“Good place for overnight on Great Ocean Road”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

Right place to have a rest during trip around GOR. Clean, comfortable. We got free of charge upgrade to SPA room with jacuzzi. Managers care about reputation of this hotel, but unfortunately they are not able to give smart advices regarding restaurants, sightseeings etc. May be difference in our age work against ) Not so expensive for Australia. Apollo Bay in the night is dead city and there are no any places with normal healthy food, it's common problem for all Australian small towns.

Thank you for such a positive review of our property. It's a shame you couldn't find the food you prefer in Apollo Bay as the choice is quite extensive.

When checking in we had a very warm welcome by the owners. They are also very helpful and gave us all the information we needed to continue our journey the next day.

The room we had was large and clean. There was a couch, TV, air conditioning and big bed with good pillows. The floor had carpet which was clean as was the bathroom and toilet. The shower sometimes runs a bit cold and warm and the shower head hangs a little low.

Unfortunately there was a lot of ambient noise which woke us up early. This is probably due to the single glass and the gap underneath the door.

Room Tip: If you want to lock the door when leaving, press the button on the door handle on the inside and clo...

We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We work very hard on the presentation and cleanliness of our rooms, so it is very rewarding for our staff to see these comments. Not sure what to say on the shower rose. They are set to a standard height, and we add to that by using a gooseneck with the rose.

We stayed just one night and there were no nasty surprises. The extra (single) bed for the child made the room a bit tight but the bathroom/kitchenette area were spacious enough and quite modern. Beds were good, A/C worked well- only small things to whinge about.

The TV didn't have many Austar channels. From memory (and I apologise if I'm wrong) there was no Sky News which is always a bummer. The parking is a bit inadequate, we were lucky to get a spot near our room but some others had to find space further away (still on the premises though).

Check in was a breeze, the host had plenty of local knowledge and suggested we dine at the pub next door (I don't recall it's name). Unfortunately they let him down. The food was just OK, dear enough. The table service was very mixed, from quite good to appalling, depending on who happened to serve us. One poor girl in particular was hopelessly out of her depth, didn't seem to know the difference between a GLASS and a BOTTLE of wine. Anyway all we wanted was a feed and a sleep so we could hit the road early next morning and so shrugged it off. I've spent enough time travelling to know you can't win 'em all.

But this isn't the motel's fault and I would be happy to return

Thank you for your positive comments and the feedback on your meal at the pub. We usually get good feedback on the pub, so we are sure they will review their process. Sounds like it may have been a new employee.

The first family holiday should always produce great memories, so we are pleased to have contributed to your experience. The xBoxes can be a life saver when parents need a break or the weather turns unfriendly. Our showers are one of our strongest points. When we renovated bathrooms a couple of years ago we found a fantastic shower rose that feels like a waterfall, and the tile company came up with marble mosaic tiles for the bases that feel like a foot massage while you shower. There were only enough to do the Families and we couldn't source them for other work. Belgrave isn't far away, so we look forward to your next visit.

We were a group of 5 who stayed in the family unit which was spacious and clean. It had an upstairs/downstairs which worked very well. We appreciated the free wifi and loved the location as it was central and an easy walk to everything we needed. Not a five star but good value for the money! Would stay here again.

Thanks for the positive comments. Free wifi is always a big hit, particularly when everyone in the group needs to go online. It's a long way from Canada, but hope you will return.

I stayed here with my daughter and was upgraded to a family unit, which was spacious upstairs / downstairs. The hotel is central and easy walk to everything shops, beach etc. It is not five star but neither was the price I paid, so it was good value for a clean, comfortable place to rest for the night before moving on. I slept well in a comfortable firm bed. Tea and coffee provided free of charge, wifi available and free also, and parking is free.

Spacious, comfortable and brilliantly equipped. Our stay of two days at Apollo Bay was a somber family time but the support of Cathy and Garry and the relaxing warm environment of our fabulous accommodation made it a genuinely special occasion. A real home away from home.
