We stayes here for a night and the receptionist was really friendly and helpful. There was a laundry room that we can use freely even though it says that the closing time was 8pm but they allowed us to use it pass that time. Apollo bay was a great town and we really enjoyed our stay here! The room was cozy with clean bathroom and shower.

Exceptional”

stayed 2 nights here for the Great Ocean Road Run Festival, arrived late on Friday evening - reception closes at 7pm - but was given detailed self check-in instructions and there was ample car parking at the back of the property. Room was clean and well laid out, location is PERFECT as it’s only a 5-10 minute walk into town. Shower temperature and water pressure was superb with a handheld shower head and all toiletries supplied. There is a small kitchenette (toaster, kettle, tea & coffee) was a lovely touch to have the glasses sitting on the shelf in the fridge so any drinks are poured into a cold glass. Fortunately was able to get a 11am check out which helped greatly as I wouldn’t be arriving back into town after the 23k run until 10:30am and normal check out time is 10am. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay at the Sandpiper!

I ran late to the checkout and arrived at 11:30pm. I called the number listed on the door and although I hadn't given any notice of running late, the staff were still extremely helpful and guided me in through the check in process. And without me asking, they gave me a late check-out so that I would have a long sleep. This is my second time staying at sandpiper and they've always been so welcoming, helpful and professional. Highly recommend.
