A great escape”

The decor, the location and the price

Having now stayed at the Captain's At The Bay Hotel, I'm very surprised at some of the less than praise filled reviews that I read whilst looking for Apollo Bay accommodation. In short, I think that the Captain's At The Bay Hotel is an absolutely fantastic place to stay and I'd not hesitate to book to stay there when next I'm in the vicinity of Apollo Bay. The room was modern, spacious and very well equipped and the included continental style breakfast was an unexpected bonus that saved my partner and me at least $30 between us. Whilst the Captain's At The Bay Hotel is a block back from the main road along the beach that's a very minor issue - especially when sitting and gazing at the beach isn't high on one's agenda. I'll be recommending at Captain's At The Bay Hotel to anyone that I know who is driving the Great Ocean Road as a wonderful and well priced place to stay.

There is something about this place.....”

Smacked in the middle of the town yet it is located off the main road of the Great Ocean Road. The place is super clean and the unit we stayed in even offered a heated bed. The breakfast was superb and the whole experience of the stay was complete with an extremely hospitable host. If we have not already booked our subsequent nights of accommodation we would have returned to stay with Captain's and make Apollo Bay the 'core' from which we can literally explore the various locations along the Great Ocean Road. Thank you very much Duncan.

Great Rooms, Staff, & Breakfast”

1) The Room, 2) The Staff, 3) The Breakfast

Me and my girlfriend stay one nigh at Captain's @ The Bay during our 3-day Great Ocean Road trip. After a day on the road the hotel was just what we wanted - friendly staff and one of the most comfy hotel rooms we have ever stayed in. Breakfast the following morning was very good and i would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking at having an overnight stop on Great Ocean Road.

Great place to stay in Apollo Bay/Great Ocean Road”

Double shower head, comfortable & large bath tub, clean room

Friendly staff who were very casual, much like Apollo Bay itself. The place was clean - the bathroom was spotless, large bathtub almost like brand new (I do not normally like to take baths in hotels but I had no hesitation with this one) and the linen was clean too. TV was well positioned at the end of the bed, however the sofa at the end of the bed took up unnecessary space (perhaps would prefer this against the wall in another area of the room). Large balcony (we stayed in the Bridge Room) however had to close curtains for privacy. Great value for money!Probably the best in the area.

Great stay in quaint Apollo Bay”

Very clean, comfortable room with a nice patio and covered parking. Really friendly staff, made checkin easy and gave great recommendations on where to eat and hiking paths nearby. Breakfast was delicious with lots of continental options and even eggs made to order. Nice location in Apollo Bay, across the street from the grocery store and only a few minutes walk to restaurants. There aren’t many in town, but you’re close to all of them! Lovely stay and would definitely return if back in the area.

The room is beautifully decorated with a warm ambience.

We stayed one night on the 14th November and we have no regrets on choosing the hotel. The room is well furnished with a warm, luxurious feel. The breakfast next day was really good and generous with egg benedict, prepared for each guest. Would certainly recommend Captain's At The Bay to anyone with no hesitation.

The new owners of this hotel, Duncan and Anna, are very friendly and warm persons that made our stay a nice experience. The hotel is located very close to the main street of Appolo Bay. We arrived late in the evening but the hotel was quite easy to find. Each room has its own parking place which was convenient. Breakfast was good. Free wifi was available. A supermarket is located just opposite the hotel which is convenient.
