This is a well located B and B in central AB and AB is a great overnight place on the GOR. The room was large with good car parking. The facilities were good and the laundry was a bonus. Disappointingly, our room lacked any character and the breakfast room is similarly "cold".

Our room here was super comfortable. The manager was very friendly and helpful. The weather was good on the day we arrived, and she gave us plenty of ideas about places to see and things to do. The large tub in the bedroom was a novel idea, we didn't get to try it out. Good modern bathroom. The balcony looked... More

We only had one night at Captain's At The Bay as a stopover on our GOR trip. The hotel was perfect for our needs - it's well located in Apollo Bay, just a 5 minute walk from the beach and restaurants but in a very quiet street. Our room was spacious with a modern bathroom and lots of wardrobe space.... More

We stayed here two nights on our trip along the coast. WE were met by Duncan half way down the drive who insisted on carrying my small suitcase. In the reception he produced a couple of maps and marked the places of interest. We immediately felt welcome. The room was very spacious with a very modern shower room. Was well... More

We visited in September and booked 3 rooms. The hotel is a great place to stay, the owners were extremely welcoming and helpful. The rooms were great and spacious. Good breakfast. Good location if travelling up the Great Ocean Road

Called into AB visitors centre to get advice on best places to stay, Receptionist was very helpful & called a few motels etc, most were booked out or low rating.

Only stayed the one night in mid September but wish it would have been longer and that was with poor weather. If the weather is decent I imagine that you have to book well in advance. A friendly welcome, a stylish room which was large with good space for clothes. There are good and very reasonably priced laundry facilities on... More
