“LOVELY HOME”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

We were on a one night,s tour of the Great Ocean Road with Longhorn Younique Tour company, which made our reservation for our night' s stay here. Marie welcomed us with a glass of wine while we relaxed in the living room. The house has been renovated with the most interesting stained glass, and warm wood panels. Marie's warmth as a hostess and her ability to decorate is amazing. We had a lovely view of the water from our bedroom, with a very comfortable bed, and thick bathrobes! Thank you for making our very short stay so pleasant.

During our Australia trip, we travelled along the Great Ocean Road and stayed at Apollo Bay Guest House, the owners were so welcoming and helpful. We stayed in the Studio which was delightful with its french style. We were welcomed with a lovely log fire and a pantry full of delicious things to eat! A really comfortable bedroom and en suite completed the perfect resting place.
The view from the deck was fantastic and we enjoyed sitting there in the early evening with a glass of wine. This place should definitely be on your list!

My wife and I recently did a motorcycle trip around Victoria and wanted to break the journey with a little "down time". We could not have found a better place than the Apollo Bay Guest House. We stayed in the main house, which is just immaculate. The proprietors are warm and friendly and even offered to leave their car out of the garage one night so our bikes would not get wet in the rain.

Highly recommended.

While visiting from USA, we decided to stay here for an overnight stop while touring the GOR. What a great place! Lovely room, very clean, comfortable bed and terrific views from our own deck. Extra thanks to owner Maree, who offered to mail me my earrings that I left behind by mistake. Highly recommend.. Real Gem!

My wife Gina and I spent two nights with Maree and her husband at their lovely guesthouse in Apollo Bay. It is thanks to the Tripadvisor reviews provided by others that we settled on this stay. We were if anything more delighed than we expected, staying in the pink room with lovely ocean views and so close to everything. The breakfast granola and the bacon and eggs were also fantastic, as was Maree's assistance in directions.

We will definitely book more time at this place and recommend anyone looking for a great hideway to do the same. Thanks again.

The guest cottage that we stayed in was truly one of the nicest places we've EVER stayed. We made the tedious drive from Melbourne in the late afternoon/evening, arriving after dark. We'd forgotten that the property was beachfront, so imagine our surprise when we looked out the window the next morning. What an incredible view of the ocean!

Our kitchen was FULLY stocked with different types of juices, fruit, milk, peanut butter, different jams, breads for toast (or sandwiches!), coffee, teas, EXCELLENT granola, yogurt, etc etc etc - and then restocked the next day. The "biscuits" (scrumptious shortbread) were also replenished, much to my delight!

The location was excellent - close enough to walk to town for restaurants or shops, but far enough away that we weren't disturbed by the huge music festival that was in town that holiday weekend.

Maree gave us excellent suggestions for restaurants and sightseeing (great hike through the rainforest at Mait's Rest). She provided us with a recommendation that resulted in the single most memorable and exciting experience of our 3 weeks in Oz...Koalas in the wild, on the road to Otway Light Station. We truly would have missed this, had it not been for Maree's advice.

On our last day, we stayed as long as we possibly could - we truly did not want to leave! We enjoyed a stroll along the beach, which is directly in front of the property. I'm now "homesick," just remembering how much we loved Apollo Bay Guest House! Would love to be able to return someday!

Room Tip: The freestanding guest suite apartment is a bit more expensive, but FABULOUS...and worth every cent!

What a beautiful place to stay. Maree is a superb host even before we arrived she sent through restaurant recommendations. Then when we arrived the fire was already lit and she guided us through the features of the room. We stayed in the studio. Accommodation was was spotless, kitchen & pantry well stocked. The fluffiest towels, beautiful spa bath and heavenly bed just what the doctored ordered after a long drive. We departed for dinner and arrived back the fire was restocked with fresh wood and room was toasty warm. Wow now that is service. Our second day the room was freshened up pantry restocked fresh towels. Maree goes above and beyond to make your stay a pleasant one. This accommodation is beyond the five star rating given.
