We spent our first night in Apollo Bay while driving from Melbourne to Adelaide and the Beachfront Motel was just fine. We had a nice spacious room which was clean and tidy, with a comfy bed and all the necessary facilities. But it was not in any way memorable. No complaints - fine for a night stop.

Nice Motel, just across the road from the beach, in my favourite place in the Great Ocean Road (We did the whole thing). The other plus about the Motel is that it is very close to a gas station, in case the Grocery store has closed and you are left with no food/breakfast for the day after.

Arrived and pleased with the size and cleanliness of the room. Just a normal motel and alright for one night. Nothing bad to say about it. It was quiet and near to the centre of Apollo Bay. Worth a stay if you are touring.

We arrived late after check in time. But reception prepared the key for us which was nice. The room was ok and clean but nothing special. It was alright for a stay of 1 night as we did! So all in all ok!

This motel is a very easy, flat walk from restaurants, hotels, shops & the Saturday morning markets on the foreshore. Although some aspects of the building are 'architectural retro design' our room (including the bathroom), was spotlessly clean, which is most important! It was great to have a kitchen sink, crockery & cutlery. A bed light for the single bed...

My Mum and I stayed here for 1 night in a twin room (1 double and 1 single bed/Room 1) and found it to be an overpriced disappointment! Firstly, this motel has no curb side appeal and is quite disappointing to drive up to after seeing the other surrounding accomodations. The gentleman/owner manning reception was brusque and appeared disinterested in...

Quite spaces, lots of room with kitchenette and bathroom/ ensuite - tasteful. Located at the Eastern end of the start of the town and across the road from the Information Centre/ beach and shops close by. Great location and central to a lot of activities in the area (Otway Ranges, Lightstation). Close also to Cafe 154 for breakfast and just...

I am quite surprised at some of the negative reviews about this motel. We only stayed one night but would have been happy to stay longer. It was clean and had a nice shower & kitchen facilities. We were really happy with the room here. The manager seemed very pleasant on arrival and I really can't find anything negative to...

Rooms at the Beachfront Motel are spacious and pleasingly designed. There is plenty of space to spread out and all is peaceful, despite the proximity to the Great Ocean Road. The location of the motel can't be faulted (unless you are intending to stay somewhere other than Apollo Bay), with all the town's shops and restaurants a short walk away....
