Wonderful Apartment”

We were given a very warm welcome and offered directions to various restaurants and places of interest within the vicinity og the apartment. Accessible to the stretch of restaurants and also the port for a wonderful sunrise in the morning. Bed is very comfortable and room big with an extra single bed which is more than our requirements. Overall, very happy and satisfied with our stay at Apollo Bay Waterfront Motor Inn. NICE!!

Rooms were really nice and spacious! Just across the road from the beach and a short stroll in to town. Makes it even more worth while considering that this motor inn is on the cheaper side compared to what else is available in the area. Ample parking available. Got a room with the spa bath, which worked perfectly! I highly commend Deb for providing friendly service and she was extremely helpful in suggesting local attractions to see and providing good recommendations for dining! Will definitely stay here again, next time I'm in Apollo Bay

Our accommodation was beautifully designed, modern, clean and fresh with our parking space immediately outside. The beach was just across the road. We were in the centre of town with good restaurants nearby and a large supermarket within 5 minutes stroll. The internet was good. We received a lovely welcome from the lady at the front desk with lots of helpful advice about what to do and where to go in Apollo Bay. Altogether a great stopover on our tour of The Great Ocean Road.

we stayed in one of the front units, it was roomy, spotlessly clean, the owner was extreemly friendly with a wealth of knowledge about the local area. the location is great, just across the road from the beach with the sound of the ocean to lull you to sleep. you can walk to everywhere in apollo bay from here. if you are travelling the great ocean road this is a great location to base yourself to explore the area. would definitely stay here again.

Plenty

We stayed here for one night while travelling from Port Campbell to Phillip Island. Located right in the middle of Apollo Bay and great value for money, the new owners were an absolute pleasure to deal with, very helpful and thoughtful. The rooms were clean and the living are very spacious, even for a group of 4 adults. We would definitely stay here again if we're passing through and would recommend it to others. A lot of hotels in the area require check-in by 6pm, we arrived just before 7pm and the owners had prepared notes and access for us to get into our room without any problems.

Superb Stay”

We were grateful to the reception who gave us an upgrade to the ocean room. Room was spotlessly clean and view were fantastic. The reception was very friendly and recommended a few "must go" places around the hotel. She even offered me her coat after seeing me in only a fleece. She said I needed a thick jacket and scarf to go around as it was very cold outside. I declined her kind offer as I had them but in the car. It was such a pleasure meeting nice people here. We enjoyed our stay here very much. We will stay here again the next time we visit Apollo Bay.

Ocean View , Big room , close to resturants

We booked Apollo Bay motor inn for a weekend and it was a good choice. Its located in the town near to all facilities and on great ocean road. The room was good size and i just loved the balcony. You could cross the road enjoy the walk in the park or on th beach. Only problem was the bed , we found it was the mattress was bit uncomfortable.

Booked a deluxe spa ocean view. When we arrived the reception lady was very helpful and attended to all our enquiries. The room and toilets are very clean. The ocean view from the balcony is excellent and we even enjoyed a dinner there (cutlery/crockery provided in the room). The inn is located along the town's main street, just 5 min walk from eateries and a grocery store (We had an enjoyable breakfast at Cafe 153). Overall a pleasant experience and we would come back again to stay at the Waterfront Motor Inn.

A Perfect Stay in Apollo Bay”

Great location, best rate and friendly services!

the hotel is located just along the main road heading towards apollo bay. you can notice it nicely when you are traveling along the great ocean road. the room is very spacious and i got everything i need for my whole family. the room is very clean. parking space is plenty and is free. the staff at the lobby is friendly and very helpful. the only thing that i would complain about the hotel is the heater that makes quite a bit of noise during our sleep at night. i had to turn it off in the middle of the nite after the room was heated up. other than that, the hotel is a great place to stay at apollo bay.

We came late, so there was nobody to check-in, but this is not a problem in this case you can have access to your room.

Worth the stay”

We stayed one night in a Deluxe Spa Ocean View room which was clean, comfortable with a great view. We checked in at 2:30pm 19th April after driving from Port Melbourne (Spirit of Tasmania) and stopping off at Torquay, Anglesea and Lorne – all up almost 8 hours. What a pleasant surprise to be greeted by a very friendly and bubbly receptionist. Unfortunately I cannot remember her name, but I think she was European. Later on while my wife enjoyed the spa after such an arduous drive, I picked up some great take away from the Dragon Bay Inn Chinese recommended by our lovely receptionist. Although our stay was short we would have no trouble recommending this accommodation.
