Myself and my partner are visiting from Ireland. We rented a car and started to drive the Great Ocean Road yesterday 13th July. We saw some great sights and stopped off along the way at Bells beach, Anglesea and Lorne. We got to Apollo Bay in the late afternoon as the rain got very heavy. We decided to stay for...

Very welcoming hosts on arrival, full of tips and recommendations. We'd been on the road all day so felt like a night in watching a movie. We were supplied with crockery and advice on local restaurants who did takeaway menus. The room, The Loft, was fantastic, nice size lounge area with two gorgeous bedrooms upstairs. The website pics don't do...

We found this accommodation through Wotif. I had no great expectations but was so pleasantly surprised. We stayed in 'the Loft'. It had two levels - the bedrooms on the top level. Every aspect of this accommodation was perfect - the furniture, wood floors, carpet and fittings. We so enjoyed relaxing in the warmth of this beautiful home. The breakfast...

We had the Bridge south west room which faced the mountains. Having the bath in the bedroom allowed us to watch tv from the bath or bed. The bath is much deeper than a normal bath. There is a double shower and double sink on the other side of the wall the bath is against that is not shown on...

We found this accommodation through lastminute.com - and what a great find! We thought the room had a luxury feeling, comfortable bed, quiet and great location. Great breakfast selection and fantastic hosts. Our second night stay on the Great Ocean Drive was at 12 Apostles Cottages...we wish we had book a second night at Captain's at the Bay! Thanks Duncan...

We came to this place as the first stop along the Great Ocean Road. Apollo Bay is very pretty and this place reflects the spirit. The room we were given was very large and elegant, with a shower in the bathroom and a huge bath in the bedroom! We also had a balcony that overlooked the ocean! The owners are...

As per other reviews this is a great place to stay in Apollo Bay. Great location - you can park the car and walk everywhere, including the breakwater, which we did! Clean, comfortable well appointed rooms, some of which have views. The full breakfast, with freshly cooked eggs and bacon made to order, was much more substantial than we expected...

We stayed at Captains for one night on the great ocean road, based on the recommendations of our tour guide. We had a terrace room and it was beautiful and spacious, with a view if the ocean. Breakfast was very nice with a full continental spread and bacon and eggs made to order. The location was great just a block...
