We had a very pleasant two night stay and were able to recharge our batteries after a pretty busy few days on the road. The staff were welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was very well cooked especially the scrambled eggs. Our room and ensuite was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The car was parked close to the room...

Great welcome by the hosts, beautifully furnished room with a garden Terrace, great facilities and substantial breakfast. Apollo Bay is a pretty small resort and wish we had more time there, but we were passing through - one night was not enough.

The moment we pulled into the car park we were greeted by Duncan. Each room has its own designated car parking space. We had one of The Bridge rooms, which also has a balcony.
