    Wonderful memory in Apollo bay :) ”

    The host was really x100 nice!! I went here from Korea with my mother. Unfortunately, we had gotten a little accident in Melbourne at the day we booked, so we went here Apollo bay so late at night. But he welcomed us warmly and prepared the room quickly, in addition, the breakfast was so delicious. Furthermore, on the next day, we had to depart in early morning, but as we had an accident with a rented car, he helped us to find bus schedule and dropped us to the bus station. I will never forget his help and kindness! If I get a chance to go apollo bay once more, I'll visit here again! The host here is really warm-hearted person and Apollo bay is so so wonderful city. Frankly, apollo bay is pretty far from Melbourne, but the ocean road and going this place and all of the chllenges we meet while getting here is worth it enough. Thank you so much.

    Gem of a find at STAY INN!”

    First impressions - wow - beaut decor- presented well with a fantastic view of garden & beyond from the bay window. After settling in we added to the list - how lucky we were to have found this gem - Storage space! Chocolate & biscuits to enjoy with a cuppa! Comfy lounge with cushions & extra comfy Queen bed. Table & chairs by the window with a TV & range of DVD's to enjoy whilst keeping warm with the split system. Spa bath & separate shower with vanity & toilet left a small space to move around in but when only there for a couple of nights you make do! Having the spa there was certainly worth it! Ken delivered our breakfast tray the evening before after taking our order. A short easy walk to the shopping strip / Saturday market / harbour & golf course etc were bonuses. Off street parking under cover also. We will be back & also recommend STAY INN to friends when they visit Apollo Bay. Thanks Ken & Donna for being our great hosts. MARIA & LES

    Fantastic, Unique venue with welcoming hosts”

    This place is ideal for a couple retreat and is located close enough to the amenities in Apollo Bay to walk, but far enough away to be private and secluded. The hosts are very welcoming, there’s private parking, breakfast was toast + condiments, cereal, fruit salad and yoghurt, as well as fresh tea and coffee (via cafetière!). Rooms are spacious, well decorated, modern and very comfortable. We stayed whilst travelling along the GOR and would recommend to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Apollo Bay!

    Loved this place the most out of the four other places we stayed in on our Great Ocean Road trip. Walking distance to the beach and the shops and the view was spectacular from our room. The room was lovely and the bed super comfortable. We were lucky enough to be there on New Year's Eve and had a wonderful view of the fireworks. Would definitely stay again.

    Great B&B but a little out of town”

    We were a little surprised/ uncomfortable when we arrived at Stay Inn and realised the owners were away and we were the only guests. However, an off-site family member came around to meet us and also brought breakfast for the following morning. The room was clean, bed was comfortable and we had everything we needed. We enjoyed our stay and have no hesitation in recommending Stay Inn.

    This place felt like home. Hosts couldn't be nicer. Only 6 minutes walk to main shopping area and Beach. Unfortunately it was a very stormy night the walls weren't sound and bay window got all the rain pelting and it was so noisy couldn't sleep the night. On a good calm day it would be good

    Pampered”

    I only stayed for one night but it was comfortable, private, and I felt very pampered. The room was larger than I had anticipated. It was spotlessly clean, and it was clear that a lot of care and thought was taken to furnish and equip the room. The breakfast supplies were simple, fresh, and generous. Stay Inn's commitment to reduce packaging / waste was noted and appreciated. There were space for parking at the back of the property. Once there, everything was within walking distance.
