The sitting space with the ocean view compensated for everything while u can enjoy a glass of wine.They had all mentioned facilities and staff was very friendly. we would surely book next time we are at Apollo bay.

          Best part of it was the view especially during sunset. The hosts were friendly and the room was in comfortable. The shops and beaches were just a short drive away. Only downside was we had to carry the luggages up the stairs which was quite a hassle. Other than that we enjoyed our stay very much

          The room needs a microwave oven since we do not have options of buying breakfast from the hotel and all restaurants and hotels close by 9 pm therefore cannot bring any food and eat later and cannot bring some breakfast on the previous day and heat up in the morning.

          We stayed on the 2nd level with balcony. Facing seaview. Family room with own parking space. There are 1 bedroom with 2 single beds and another double bed on the main living space. At night , it can get quite chilly at the main space. The other room is more comfortable with the heater on. Overall, very satisfied for the price that we paid. No frills motel, good location away from the centre of town. An excellent pitstop if you are driving along the great ocean road.

          We had the best time just leisurely driving the Great Ocean Road stopping at Anglesea, Apollo Bay and onto 12 Apostles. Checking into A Great Ocean View Motel completes our wonderful visit. It has parking facilities and wifi in our room. Our room faces the sea and it is lovely just to wake up and watch the ocean. The reception staff were friendly and courteous.

          Every room is facing the beach, good view! Location is excellent, about 15 minutes walking distance or 3 minutes drive to Apollo Bay where restaurants are around. Free car park is just in front of your room. Very convenient! The room is spacious but interior looks old, the water tap did not work well, very difficult to open and shut. Very basic amenities including electric blanket are available. Do remember to bring your slippers, toothbrush and toothpaste.

          It was quite short but worth it. We came late that day but thank god we have contact number in case we need anything. Perhaps the motel could provide phone so that we can reach them whenever we need help. So far, everything was fine eventhough we were told to checkout early the next day 😅
